Reality TV? Let’s call it manufactured television
In an interview conducted by Riaz Meghji, The Bachelorette Season 11 televsion star, Kaitlyn Bristowe sheds light on the true nature of reality showbiz. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.
From the small town of Leduc, Alberta to the global stage, Kaitlyn Bristowe boldly forged an identity as perhaps the most controversial, yet accepted Bachelorette to date. Known for her unapologetic resoluteness, and her knack for quirky comedy, Kaitlyn has steadily remained composed under media scrutiny. In the process she has accumulated fascinating insight into the harsh reality of unscripted television.
Bristowe is an ambassador for self-acceptance in light of a backlash of cyberbullying that resulted from her no-nonsense, expressive behaviour on the 11th season of The Bachelorette. Her conversation will share a unique perspective on the unwavering popularity of the reality genre, what it truly reveals about the audience that consumes it and how to overcome adversity in the public eye.
