Yeah, I saw my former hairdresser pop up on Kiwi Living the other night.
I have to admit I'll watch the storage locker shows, although my sister insists they're all completely staged. And I do have a soft spot for Location, Location, Location. I'll chalk that one up as my guilty pleasure :o) Not all reality TV is awful. I've really enjoyed things like Top Gear, Time Team, The Long Way Down ... they're all British shows come to think of it.
. Enough said.
I like those shows, but they aren't really the same as the NZ type shows that are produced, such as a house makeover shows, which are really just big advertorials. Location doesn't have product placement, nor are they selling anything to you.
This is true, probably because they started some time ago, before such TV became one gigantic commercial. Location's in its 20th season.
