The Bachelor, the Biggest Loser, American Idol, Survivor, the list goes on and on. These are popular "Reality" TV shows that people just can't get enough of! And of course there's also the popular debate; how much of it is real?
One show that I was a huge fan of was "Celebrity Fit Club." I have always been a big "Brady Bunch" fan, so I loved watching Maureen McCormick (a.k.a. Marsha Brady) win it all! I even read her autobiography, "Here's the Story," but it didn't give much information about the reality show.
So, Friday night a bunch of friends and me went to the Funny Bone in Huntington to see comedian Dustin Diamond, or you may know him better as "Screech" from "Saved by the Bell."
I was a little nervous that he might be the type of comedian to point people out in the audience and be mean to them, because if you watched five minutes of "Celebrity Fit Club," you know that Mr. Diamond didn't appear to be the nicest person in the world. However, he did talk about that a little; basically saying the "villain" was his role, and that it wasn't real.
But this just left me with the question, "what's real, and what's not?"
Obviously it really was a challenge and they really did lose weight, but how much of their personalities were really them, and how much was the inner actor?
I'm sure this is something many of you have wondered about also and I'd love to hear your opinion!
