      The only one I watch these days is “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, so I completely understand. I think people who get on act a little nuts for all the wrong reasons!

      Oh, how I agree with you. I enjoy some (very limited) but for the most part it brings out a next level of stupidity that just isn’t something I enjoy watching. I tend to like shows like “American Idol” or “RuPaul’s Drag Race” that are more challenged based. These types are a little less dramatic and a little less people acting completely bonkers for a few minutes of fame!

    Personally, I really enjoyed The Selection series even though I don’t like reality TV. I have never been a fan of The Bachelor or anything else that falsely promises to create love on TV. I definitely agree that The Selection is really close to love reality TV shows. The one thing that set it apart for me was the subplot about politics and the rebellion, which I would have loved to see more emphasis on anyway.

    Even though I would never want to be on a reality TV show, I might make an exception for The Selection. I know that I would not fall in love, but I would have loved the experience of living in the castle and learning more about how royals lived. I know that is not exactly the purpose of The Selection, but that is what I am interested in!

      Tessa, I tried to steer clear of discussing the politics and rebellion aspect myself because I feel that these were kinda spoilery plot points that definitely were not expected in a fluff book about a prince deciding between 35 girls. I definitely think I would have been a little more likely to go into the royal part of “The Selection” than into a show like “The Bachelor”, however I couldn’t see myself signing up for anything that tries to determine who I am going to love.
