My God . . . people will still do anything to get on TV, won't they?
. . . and this is not something I have been following because I hate I'm a Celeb, Get Me Out of Here (call me old fashioned, but watching people chow down on revolting crap doesn't entertain me - and we already have Masterchef for that) but I have "The Island with Bear Grylls" on in background.
I avoid any programmes that are about suffering (rescue programmes, A&E etc.) because I find it distressing, but there seems to be no line at all now as to what is produced, and am not sure people even really know what they're signing up for.
Of course they have medics on location, but I felt so sorry for the woman who was dangerously dehydrated and ill yet this was still shown in edit as entertainment? I think sometimes people get so brainwashed about 'being on TV' that there needs to be more responsibility by programme makers and judgment can be further compromised when really sick - and seeing someone this unwell is makes for really uncomfortable viewing.
