Task

Hinweis: Die Prozentangaben in Klammern zeigt die Gewichtung der einzelnen Aufgaben.

For a website supporting victims of reality TV shows, sum up the information in the text on Sarah’s experiences and on suggestions about how to reform reality TV. (20%)

Solution

Reality TV shows, such as “Schwer verliebt”, have a reputation for violating human dignity.
Sarah, one of the participants, wanted to find the love of her life and ended up being portrayed as a Barbie doll, social outcast and as someone whose situation is even worse than the viewer’s. Thus, together with a newspaper and a lawyer, she decided to sue the TV channel for having compelled her to do things she did not want and for having made her sign an oppressive contract, in which she had to, on the one hand, agree not to contact the press and, on the other, renounce her personality rights as well as the copyright on the footage.
As a consequence, politicians demand to establish a code of ethics and to have the contracts of the participants verified by independent entities.
To sum things up, as reality TV shows keep abusing their participants, new laws are required to protect individuals from being humiliated in public.
