Reality show question: what if no-one texted?

Asked by zensky (13367points) August 29th, 2012

I fail to see the appeal in texting (and paying) to choose a “winner” – and what if everyone just didn’t sms…

They’d fake it.

I agree with @marinelife. They would likely toss a coin.

The world would be a better place.

But not to worry – there are always suckers out there who will play their necessary role.

And if no one posted answers on Fluther, people would stop asking questions. I’m sure the majority of people out there think spending time here is a waste. To each his own.

The loss of income should put an end to reality shows, sorry, but i just can’t see that happening.

I myself have no interest in horseracing, but one day in the year during a local meet i will place a few bets, i don’t consider this to be gambling, but paying to be entertained as i have created an interest in the outcome. The same can be said for placing a bet on a rugby match i would otherwise be neutral on. That i occassionly/rarely cover some of an outings costs this way is merely a bonus.
There is no amount that would be enough to create an interest in reality tv for me, but as 6rant6 says, “To each his own”.

Thousands of lives would be saved each year on the roads.

What, you have to text in for winners now? Come to think of it, I have no idea how winners were selected before texting became all big…but they’d find ways to sell us spaghetti sauce made by winners, either way.

We’d move to Tweeting, as is clearly normal, natural, and right.

No one, and good I say, texting is expensive!
