I thought I was the only one who religiously avoided all reality TV ...

I can't say I avoid all of it, as I do watch MythBusters, and Junkyard Wars is one of my favorite shows of all time. But most reality TV is bullshit. I have never seen The Hills or The Real World, and am still trying to understand why anyone would want to watch a bunch of vapid narcissists.

I've heard enough about The Biggest Loser to know not only that I don't want to watch it, but it doesn't sound like a competition, more like sanctioned sadism. And Jillian Michaels, who first says there is no magic pill but then lets her name get slapped on diet pills, is a hypocrite of the first order.

I honestly don't think of MythBusters as reality TV. When I use the term, I'm thinking of shows that artificially bring people together and make them compete with each other in a way that's bound to bring forth the worst of humanity; stuff like Survivor and The Bachelor, or some of the even lower-brow versions of those -- or Jerry Springer. The Hills and The Real World definitely qualify!
