How much "reality" is there on these reality-dating shows I see on TV?

The simple answer is “a lot and very little”. Yes, the “reality” is that the longest running dating show has a track record somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 successes for 16 seasons, and the dynamic of the competition definitely creates cloudy motivations for some of the participants. But what these shows do demonstrate are some of the universal relationship truths: shared values are more likely to get you into the finals than great abs and winning weekly challenges; no two people progress in a relationship at the same pace; shared experiences create a great backdrop for getting to know someone but don’t reveal core values; and the way a couple “fights” says a lot about their long term potential.

The upcoming Ready for Love is going to redefine reality dating shows, and after you watch the first season I’ll come back and answer this question with “a lot and a lot”.
