In my mind, shows like Survivor labeled as ‘reality’ is misleading. Survivor and Faceoff are game shows. The object is to win a prize.

Reality shows have sub-genres. Some I like such as American Chopper and Dirty Jobs. Snapshots of observing people in the things they do. Unfortunately many other ‘reality’ shows involve talentless people doing absolutely nothing of value.
I absolutely hate game shows.  I never understood watching other people on TV compete in games. I think this started in my childhood days of the Price Is Right, Password, Jeopardy, etc. I think my idea of hell would be to forcibly watch game shows and talentless reality shows.

Which brings me to dilemma some may state when I say I enjoy FaceOff… a game. I think the exception to my own rule is…

1) I could care less who wins. It’s not about winning.

2) It’s about the talent. It’s the journey, challenge and solution.  Not everybody can do these things. Unlike most game shows you are watching someone with luck get through the show, but watching a smart person know stuff is just as boring. 

You could arguably say maybe I would enjoy Cupcake Wars or Tiara’s and Toddlers, but it only makes sense, I would have to have in interest in the subject of the game too.
