People love action, especially where movies and television programming is concerned. This explains why more reality TV shows are being aired than ever before in history. As people become bored with one series, newer, more dangerous scenarios take their place. The producers know that human nature becomes dulled to stimuli over time and requires more to stay engaged. Ratings depend upon providing that stimuli.
We know, however, that “reality” in regards to TV isn’t completely real, don’t we? Guns are fake, people trained for stunts fill in for real people and all manner of safety measures are in place to prevent accidents. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Injuries on reality TV shows are increasing at a drastic rate. People on the sets are getting permanently hurt, and even killed.
