Project Runway and other shows

I love watching Project Runway!  Not only is it a wonderful study in personalities, it is fabulous to see how they design clothes that speak to different people in the world.  Tonight's show was about creating a design for woman on the go.  I like when the designers create a story for the woman who would wear their clothes.  It's like they are creating a heroine for a story.  "this woman would be working in advertising during the day and is going out on the town with her gal pals" or something like that.

It just goes to show that everyone is a storyteller in their life.

There are several shows like Project Runway that I like to watch because it gives me a glimpse into people's personalities.  Many people who watch these shows feel they must be staged.  That the people in them are really just actors who are thrown into a mix to create the most drama possible.  While I can see this could be possible with a few of the reality shows out there, I think in some of them it's too difficult to manage.  I am not a big reality tv person, because I just do not have the time to watch them.  (like you I am writing during my free time).  But I do know several people who watch these shows all the time and feel invested in the lives of the people on the shows.  It's the talk around the water cooler situation!

When you look at the people who are gathered on these shows, they are like a microcosm of most people's workplaces.  Think about where you work (if you work outside the house) and I bet you can imagine your own workplace as a tv reality show.  There are divas everywhere.  There are the serious workers.  There are the non-compliant workers.  There are the back-stabbers.  I bet you can think of several others to add to your list.  You are just too busy sometimes to notice them.

So, next time you are at work, think about how your workplace would make the perfect reality tv show.
