The Reality TV Guru

The Reality TV Guru


Welcome to Beliefnet‘s Reality TV Guru blog! Grab a cushion and have a seat as we meditate on the ponderous world of reality TV.

This is a venue where people allow us Reality TV disciples to watch and listen to them as they go through their journeys of self-realization — or not! Some will understand the wisdom of knowing what they do not know as they probe the mysteries of the people and challenges of the environment around them; others will return home in greater confusion and ignominy than the day they first appeared upon the screen.

As your host in this temple of Reality TV, I will share with you the latest news, episode reviews and ratings, live show blogs, interviews of people on the screen and behind the scenes, polls for you to participate in, and much more to enrich your wisdom and knowledge of reality television. And we will ask questions, like “how does this person’s faith and belief correspond to how they portray themselves on the screen?” Questions, always questions.

And with this, I ask you for your comments, what would you like to see in this blog?

What the hey, a reality column on Belief net? What the hey?

What a great idea, obviously there are realty TV contestants who use their belief systems as sledge hammers to get an advantage in their ego driven quests to win the money, and I think you are just the guru we need to sleuth out the fakers, con men (and women), and snake oil Jack Shack phony baloneys.

Go get em Mr. Guru, we’re depending on you to lead us thru all the Big Brother et. al. “Biggest Twists Ever!!” to the promised land.

And may Dog have mercy on your soul.

Can’t wait to see your thoughts on some of the Reality TV characters that wander across our crosshairs. I have doubts about most of their abilities to walk and chew gum much less grow as individuals, but I guess that’s where the faith comes in!

Woot! It’ll be interesting to see how the topic of religion when it comes to reality tv plays out. I have faith (pun intended) that you will lead with some interesting blog posts!

Something seems familiar about you.

Look forward to reading your thots on all things reality-related and seeing different perspectives on what we’re all watching. Nice pic at the top!

Just in time for the start of Big Brother! I can’t wait to read what you think of this year’s bunch of hamsters.

I’m a personal growth junkie, so I like the idea of watching them go through whatever transformations they go through (or lack thereof), and discussing how those transformations both affected their game and themselves.

Great start! The reason I watch RTV is to witness the journeys. I don’t care if they involve faith or not or belief in anything but themselves, but I am looking forward to your insights.
