Big Brother’s Kent: reality TV “has been overexposed and deluded [sic].”
Big Brother 2‘s Kent Blackwelder thinks he knows what’s wrong with the reality TV genre now, and it has nothing to do with “the mood of the country.” “What’s happened now is that they have deluded [sic] the pure nature of reality (TV) with ‘theme’ (shows) such as Lost and Amazing Race.
