Reality shows such as ‘The Kardashians’ and ‘Real Housewives’ may be a thing of the past thanks to a new breed of shows.
Reality shows such as ‘Kardashians’ and ‘Real Housewives’ are shows about people with money. Those shows may be a thing of the past in the near future because a new breed of shows are based around the flat-broke truth of a country that is dealing with hard economic times.
There are reality shows that teach people all about clipping coupons, storage-locker auctions, furniture restoration and now there will be a reality show about getting back to work during these hard economic times, according to the New York Post.
Brent Montgomery, producer of “Fashion Hunters”, said that there were a lot of shows about flipping houses back when the economy was good. Montgomery’s new reality show follows around people who shop at a consignment shop in NYC, where former rich women sell their Prada and Gucci items, according to TV Week.
The network A&E has a new reality show called “Job Whisperer,” and the show is about a headhunter, Stephen Viscusi, and he helps people who are not working get back into jobs. The reality show will air in the next few weeks, but only as a special. If the ratings are good, then the show could end up becoming a regular series on the network.
Viscusi says he is not a career coach, and that he refers to coaches as “sissies.” He also said that he teaches people how to get into the door of a company, look better and even low-ball their salary. Viscusi also teaches people how to clean up their Facebook profile.
He hopes that people will watch the show and think “if they can get a job, then so can I.”
