Compared to scripted dramas or comedies, reality TV shows typically have lower production costs. With minimal sets, fewer actors, and less scripted dialogue, these shows are more cost-effective to produce, making them attractive investments for networks and production companies. The relatable characters and storylines automatically result in higher viewer engagement. Audiences become emotionally invested in the lives, challenges, and triumphs of the participants, leading to increased viewership and loyalty. In addition, reality TV formats provide ample opportunities for product placement, brand partnerships, and sponsorships. These shows offer advertisers a platform to reach target demographics effectively. Streaming platform have particularly been attracted to this format as they are able to adapt them to multiple territories generating additional revenue for producers and subscribers for networks. Such shows also provide social chatter to further boost viewership numbers and foster community-building amongst fans. And finally, successful reality TV shows provide an infinite revenue stream by spawning a wide array of merchandise, including clothing lines and affiliated real-world representations of their IP.
