Mole DVD outselling other reality DVDs.

Mole DVD outselling other reality DVDs.
Last week, season one of The Mole was released on DVD for the first time. Although it’s the 864th most popular DVD on Amazon.com, it’s easily outselling all the other reality TV DVDs I checked, although The Simple Life 2 is a close second. In particular, though, it’s doing better than its bastard cousin
Celebrity Mole Hawaii, which ranks 10,976. Perhaps most surprisingly, a DVD featuring former cast members telling viewers “secrets” about how to get on reality TV shows is way behind even the lowest-selling reality TV show DVD. Reality TV Secrets: How To Get On The Show!, which oddly bleeps out the name of the shows as people like Survivor Africa’s Ethan and The Real World Las Vegas’ Trishelle talk about their own series, comes in at number 52,005. Based upon that, people just want to watch reality TV, not participate. Here’s how full-season reality TV DVDs rank right now, as of 9 a.m. ET today (they’ll surely shift soon):
