The initial essential root established depicted that the people perceiving the content of reality TV programs as real and developed more affinity for content of reality TV had more likeliness of watching shows for entertainment fulfilment and relax themselves along with interacting socially and meeting the needs of companionships(Kato et al 1999). This further implies that for individual to enjoy the reality programs as a medium of entertainment and relaxation are the ones who have accepted its content’s realism and have developed a likeliness for the same. Furthermore, it is also evident that these people have a tendency of perceiving the meticulous edits and frequent pre-planned information of interaction within reality programs as a realistic perspective (Morita 2003). Another result correlated further depicts that those controlled externally with lower mobilizing and lower interpersonal interaction levels, have more likeliness for watching reality TV program to fulfil their needs of voyeurism and companionship.
This, still does not depict that voyeurism is not existing as a motivation and gratification possibly achieved when watching reality programs. This is also consistent with the results and findings from Nabi et al, (2003) who states clearly that curiosity was not an essential motivation to study reality TV shows (Nabi et al, 2003).
To sum up, through qualitative and quantitative analysis, this essay is of the notion that whether a reality program, such as Peep show and Marion and Geoff show, is real or not, it is not a matter of consideration for most viewers until the scenes depicted through POV shots appeal to the audience. Most understand that the use of POV shots adds value of realism to the content of a show, but it does not mean that the show is a reality based perspective. The audience most profoundly is in acceptance to the unreal elements as well until their needs and personal satisfaction is met with.
