For the most part, reality shows are TOTALLY a springboard to fame. One day the whole world is watching you compete against a bunch of people for some title or another & the next day, you're either marrying quarterbacks & spouting your batshit beliefs on a beloved daytime talk show or you're Kelly Clarkson, or you're that chick from Survivor: The Australian Outback who posed in Playboy. FAME.
True Confession: Until about a month ago, I'd essentially shunned reality food TV. Sure I'd seen the occasional episode of Iron Chef or Hell's Kitchen but for the most part, I'd just skipped it all. The way I figure, I spend enough of my day obsessing over food as it is.
