My Sunday gripe (Big brother)
My idea of a reality show would be a big brother which has homeless contestants as the stars. Why? Everyone thinks that homeless people are junkies and alcoholics or just plain lazy people. Well my idea would be to show just how normal homeless people are. No one has ever really seen just how normal addicts or an alcoholics are. I have heard so many strange comments from people who are supposed to be normal, like all homeless people should be forced to live normally, homeless people should work for a living before they can get benefit and the best one was from some old age pensioner they should be lined up and shot the good for nothings. Most of these reality TV shows don't actually base their shows on reality at all. The only reality part of the shows is how far they will go to get the prize and that's not reality that's greed or need. This world that we live in needs to be shown that people are just people and it doesn't matter what colour or religion they are. After what's happened around the world in the last ten years we need now build a future which does not allow hate to rise to the fore. Can you imagine a big brother with anti Muslims and Muslims. Fanatics and non fanatics. Some people would say let them destroy themselves. To me that's reality. The person who has nothing but will not degrade themselves for love or money that's reality. We all have different takes on reality. Maybe this is just a way of me saying there's nothing on TV.
