Sumario:The frantic growth of the so-called “reality show” and its multiple facets has made it become the most polemical and criticized genre of modern television. The genesis of this format rests on the creation of thematic contests where the winning participants are then exposed to the audience just in the act of revealing all sorts of personal and private affairs in front of the cameras. Besides questioning the value of showing the real thing, the controversy goes beyond in wondering how actually truthful and natural this reality is, as conveyed through the television language, and even further conditioned by the protagonists themselves.
