20 Fictional Characters That Would Kill It On Reality TV Shows
Reality television and scripted TV have pretty much waged war over our channels since the 1990s. The recent merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery is just the latest clash in their ongoing battle. However you slice it though, reality television is still scripted (albeit loosely… sort of).
The scenarios are pre-written or stirred up by producers as the cameras roll. Conversations are often repeated in order to get clean audio when possible. Games are created to get genuine reactions from the competitors. Even editing is done to create rivalries, heroes, and villains among people who are just hanging out and playing along when on camera. The only thing real about reality TV is the regular people involved, and even they are coached or coaxed into certain soundbites and reactions.
So if reality television is scripted that much, why not just flood it with cool fictional characters to mix in with the normies? Some of them would do great on competition shows, or stir up some unique or juicy controversies living it up in a house with the college frat guy Chaderick, the awkward yet adorable Melby, or “I’m not here to make friends” Linda.
Let’s break it down and see which fictional characters from movies, video games, and TV that would absolutely kill it on reality TV programs.
