Thought of the Day #19

Reality television is well known for fostering and rewarding bad
behavior. I appreciate "True Beauty"'s twist by removing the rudest,
most poorly behaved contestants. The contestants are under the
assumption that it's strictly a beauty competition, so their crappy
attitudes are independent of the presumed scope. When voted off, the
show's true scope is revealed to the contestant. Videos demonstrating
the contestant's inner ugliness are shown, and the contestants squirm.
Gotta love that!
