Reality Shows: Giving Me False Dreams

By: Kaitlyn

Has this ever happened to you? You’re sitting on your couch and you stumble upon an obscure reality show and five hours later you’re thinking, “I can do that! I could be on that show!” However, in reality, you could never ever do what that show is competing in in millllllion years.

This happens to me more often than I would like to admit. Here are the shows that make me believe anything is possible:

  1. America’s Next Top Model. We’re all guilty of this one, right? After watching a marathon, all of a sudden I think I’ve been a model my whole life and should just go straight to Vogue and be a star. And then I remember that I would be a horrible model; me walking in heels is a disaster waiting to happen on the runway. Oh well…

  2. Project Runway. Going along with the runway theme, I dream of Tim Gunn telling me to make it work. Then I remember 7th grade home ed class where my teacher wouldn’t even let me finish sewing my apron because it was such a mess. But, I could still sew a whole fashion line, right?

  3. MasterChef. I’m not a bad cook. I acutally LOVE cooking. But there’s a difference between being able to cook dinner and being able to cook a gourmet, three-course meal in 60 seconds. But, man, I would love to wear the MasterChef arpon.

  4. So You Think You Can Dance. One of my biggest regrets in life is that I decided to do basketball instead of dance when I was kid. I don’t even like basketball, what was I thinking? I really, truly wish I knew how to dance and this show is a continuous reminder of that. Maybe one day I’ll learn and then maybe Travis Wall will choreograph something for me. Totally possible.


The final show that makes me think that I could compete in and win is actually legitimate. It is one of my life-time dreams to be on this show and I can say with certainty that I would actually do pretty well.

The Amazing Race. How cool would it be to be on a race around the world and do crazy things?! The answer? The coolest ever. Ever. I am obsessed with this show; every time I watch this I always think to myself that I could do that. Just last night they were in Austria and had to sing a song with the boys choir. I would have rocked that!!! Just saying. I want to apply. I will apply. World, here I come!

Reality shows make me think that I have a whole slew of skills that I will never ever have. They make me think that I can do anything. I guess they’re more of a fiction show than anything.

What reality shows do you daydream about being in?
