I have a confession to make…

I’m addicted to reality T.V.

It all started for me back in the days of Real World and I haven’t missed a show of Survivor yet.

Perhaps it’s because I feel smart compared to many of the reality T.V. Stars. I was never able to outsmart Macgyver or Matlock, so my ego gets a huge stroke from some of the boneheads we see in reality T.V.

I wonder why we haven’t seen the explosion of reality T.V. In Hong Kong.

We actually don’t even have a T.V. In our home at the moment, but if these shows were on, I’d definitely consider buying one again.

My Top 6 proposed Reality T.V. Shows for Hong Kong

1-Job Swap

You reality T.V. Junkies have most likely seen “Wife Swap” and “Celebrity Wife Swap” where the wife from one family changes positions with a wife from another family for a week.
Well I’d like to see people change jobs for a week. Perhaps the CEO could swap with a door man, or the kindergarten teacher could swap with a chef. There are so many possibilities! What could go wrong?!

2-The Real Housewives of The Peak

This show is itching to be made! You just know we could easily find a handful of ultra rich wives who are overly proud of their snobbish tendencies to be on this show. They’ll abuse their helpers and complain about the temperature of their tea. So much drama! Put a few of them in the same room and watch the egos collide! Great entertainment!

3-So You Think You Can Drive

Watch a handful of HK drivers feel shock after realising that they have actually no idea what they’re doing behind the wheel. Drivers attempt extreme challenges like looking in the rear view mirror and letting another car go in front of them.

4-Shopping Mall Survivor

Watch some of the best shoppers in the world compete to stay in Pacific Place Mall. Two teams compete in challenges like finding a seat without paying for anything and finding a discount on something that in season. The losing team votes one member out of the mall and back to spend time with their nasty family.

5-Keeping up with the (CY) Leungs

Listening to how C.Y. Leung’s daughter brags about Hong Kong’s taxpayers paying for her dresses and such, this show is dying to be made! Watch this train wreck ensue and get ready to judge harshly.

6-The Amazing School Admission Race

Watch parents scramble and stress over getting their child into the best school. See the cheque books come flying out and eavesdrop on parent’s playground conversations as they ask complete strangers questions about their school choice.

What show would you like to see?!
Let me know in the comments below!

Hope you’re all having a great week!
