“reality television a helpful way to examine…lives and morals” for teen girls.
A study of 18- to 21-year-old girls’ “response to reality television programs” in Australia is only half complete, but the researchers say their subjects “[find] reality television a helpful way to examine their own lives and morals,” the Courier-Mail reports. Regarding Australia’s Big Brother, the study found “teenage girls took the program to a deeper emotional level” and “were really interested in the morals and ethics of it.”
