Why do people really watch reality TV?
In a new survey conducted by Today.com, it turns out that a majority of the respondents -72 percent of women and 60 percent of men - watch simply because they're bored.
Guess that TV mustache!
The study, which surveyed nearly 19,000 people, also found that those who watched non-competition reality shows are more extroverted, neurotic and have lower self-esteem than watchers who are not fans of the genre. Additionally, 46 percent of the women and 26 percent of the men watch this programming because they like seeing how people with money, fame and status live their lives.
What shows are you breaking up with?
And what was the favorite reality show among men? Deadliest Catch and the Real Housewives franchise.
Are you surprised by the findings?
