Reality TV Editing

Reality TV caught the world by storm a few years ago, catapulting as a genre a few years ago with shows like Survivor that promised to capture the real life dramas that might be even juicier or more engaging than reel ones. While we all know that editing are necessary to condense hours upon hours of what amounts to surveillance footages into a decent, rating-pulling show, the extent where manipulation is possible – or perhaps more aptly, easy – might not be easily imaginable.

The clip above sharply illustrates just how easily it is to manipulate a set of footages to the desired outcome. Pretty much puts the whole reality-TV genre into the same band as say, wrestling matches, don’t you think?
