Violence in reality show

  1. 1. Subject: Media Studies Refrence: Internet & Book:Effects Of Watching Reality T.V. Shows- by Jillian Karger
  2. 2. Voilence meaning: Violence is "the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment, or deprivation." This definition associates intentionality with the committing of the act itself, irrespective of the outcome it produces. Generally, although, anything that is turbulent or excited in an injurious, damaging or destructive way, or presenting risk accordingly, may be described as violent or occurring violently, even if not signifying violence (by a person and against a person). Globally, violence takes the lives of more than 1.5 million people annually: just over 50% due to suicide, some 35% due to homicide, and just over 12% as a direct result of war or some other form of conflict. For each single death due to violence, there are dozens of hospitalizations, hundreds of emergency department visits, and thousands of doctors' appointments. Furthermore, violence often has lifelong consequences for victims' physical and mental health and social functioning and can slow economic and social development. Violence in many forms is preventable. Evidence shows strong relationships between levels of violence and potentially modifiable factors such as concentrated poverty, income and gender inequality, the harmful use of alcohol, and the absence of safe, stable, and nurturing relationships between children and parents. Scientific research shows that strategies addressing the underlying causes of violence can be effective in preventing violence.
  3. 3. Reality Television: Reality television is a genre of television programming that documents unscripted situations and actual occurrences, and often features a previously unknown cast. The genre often highlights personal drama and conflict to a much greater extent than other unscripted television such as documentary shows. The genre has various standard tropes, such as reality TV confessionals used by cast members to express their thoughts, which often double as the shows' narration. In competition-based reality shows, a notable subset, there are other common elements such as one participant being eliminated per episode, a panel of judges, and the concept of immunity from elimination.
  4. 4. Examples Of Reality Show: 1) MTV SplitsvillaMTV Splitsvilla, is an Indian television reality show that airs on MTV India. The series is based on the American dating reality show Flavor of Love. The reality show revolves around young boys and girls try to secure a place in Splitsvilla which is a "Villa". It's a 'hunt for love' show where boys and girls compete in tasks to stay in the competition and mingle with the contestants to find love. In the end, one boy and one girl are crowned the winners of Splitsvilla (they are a couple.) There are a lot of fights, jealousy, hatred, friendship, backstabbing and love when all these 16 wild contestants get together. There is also a King and Queen that have dumping powers. 2)MTV RoadiesMTV Roadies is a youth-based popular reality television show on MTV India. It is an Indian version of the original show, Road Rules (1995). The auditions for Roadies X1 is scheduled to begin on November 17,2013 in Delhi and contrary to rumours,Raghu Ram will be a part of the 11th season. When asked about the show, executive producer said, "Roadies has travel, adventure, drama, touch of voyeurism...” 3) Big Boss-
  5. 5. Bigg Boss is a reality TV programme broadcast in India. It follows the Big Brother format, which was first developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. Bigg Boss is a reality show based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A number of contestants (known as "housemates") live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who receives the most nominations would face a public vote. Of these, one would eventually leave, having been "evicted" from the House. However, there were exceptions to this process as dictated by Bigg Boss. In the final week, there were three housemates remaining, and the public voted for who they wanted to win. The housemates in the Indian version are primarily celebrities with the exception of one who is a non-celebrity selected via auditions. Housemates are overseen by a mysterious person known as 'Bigg Boss', whose only presence in the house is through his voice.

Truth reveals are lot different. This will actually be relaxing modify where you associate it your own way of life. No designs, no foolish settings…everything actual almost.

But nevertheless it can be relaxing for some of you. The only factor that you are sure is actual, is information programs. As for relax you need to take it and with touch of sodium. Come on, one can consent that not reality reveals are elegant resources of enjoyment and mostly not useful. But still there are multitude of new reality reveals arriving up each 30 days.

While as dilemma reveals need costly places, all celebrity throw and amazing tale authors (who also need excellent money) to accomplish primary time success; reality reveals need none of them.

  9. 9. The Effects of Watching Reality TV Shows Since the introduction of shows such as "The Real World" in the early 1990s and "Survivor" nearly a decade ago, reality TV has become one of America's most popular forms of entertainment. Competitive shows such as "America's Got Talent" and "So You Think You Can Dance" receive stellar ratings. Soapydrama-reality shows such as "The Hills" and "Real Housewives of Orange County" have served as a guilty pleasure to millions. As the years pass and the reality TV craze refuses to die out, one has to wonder what kind of effect this form of TV is having on American society. 1)Unrealistic Expectations The late novelist Kurt Vonnegut once described media in terms that may apply to reality shows. He explained how TV and movies have caused people to expect reality to be much more dramatic than it really is: "...because we grew up surrounded by big dramatic story arcs in books and movies, we think our lives are supposed to be filled with huge ups and downs. So people pretend there is drama where there is none." Nothing proves Vonnegut's theory like America's love for reality TV. Shows such as "The Real World" and "The Hills" are filled with over-dramatic fights and intrigue. But unlike books and movies before them, reality TV claims to be representative of real life. This helps people believe more than ever before that life should be full of dramatic ups and downs that don't really exist.
  10. 10. 2)Desire for Status In a study conducted by Psychology Today, one of the dominant characteristics that differentiates a reality TV fan from fans of other shows is a desire for prestige. Psychology Today reports, "Fans of the shows are much more likely to agree with statements such as, "Prestige is important to me" and "I am impressed with designer clothes." Reality TV allows Americans to fantasize about gaining status through automatic fame. Ordinary people can watch the shows, see people like themselves and imagine that they too could become celebrities by being on television. In our increasingly celebrity-obsessed culture, it's not surprising that this would be an attraction. Reality TV's increasing popularity could be reflective of an increased desire for status in American society. 3)Escapism Escapism is a central theme in most reality TV programs. Contestants on shows such as "Top Chef" and "America's Next Top Model" leave their everyday lives to live in a beautiful house and gain the opportunity to achieve their dreams and make hundreds of thousands of dollars doing so. This is surely an appealing theme to a country still stuck under an economic recession. 4)Lack of Privacy Brad Waite, who presented reality TV research at the American Psychological Society's 16th Annual Convention, believes reality TV may be encroaching on society's expectations
  11. 11. of privacy. He says of watchers of reality TV, "Expectations of privacy have been eroded ... Public disclosure, even of formerly private behavior and feelings, is the expectation." 5)Enjoying the Misfortune of Others Waite also expresses the fear that reality shows such as "Temptation Island" bring out viewers' attraction to mortification. "Temptation Island" revolved around trying to get monogamous couples to be unfaithful. Waite says of heavy watchers of these sorts of shows, "They expect it's OK to humiliate and to be humiliated by others, instead of thinking there's something wrong with this behavior."
