This is a prospective awnser of course but i got a few ideas: 1. The world has become a very boring place theres not to many ideas left that havent been done alread…y so the companys are milking it as long as possible. 2.Other peoples problems can take you away from your own briefly. 3.Every one loves watching idiots. 4.Its seems reality tv is more entertaining the real life so all those people with no lives sit and watch and talk about what they would do in such a situation it makes them feel better about themselves its like a lil kid in school he is a total coward but he sees some kid get beat up by a bigger kid so in his head he plays the scenerio and comes to the conclusion that he would kid the big kid in the jimmy if you will but in reality he would of had the same outcome as the beating victim... see an ego boost 5.Being a guy myself i love watching stupid bimbos fight, wear skimmpy clothing, make an ass out of themselves.
