Today i was watching Tv and that’s something i do once in a week at the most. Usually i prefer a DVD or Internet. I was watching it today because the subject was wierder than usual. The show was the Big Brother Brasil. It a reality show most countries already had the opportunity to have in one or two editions. In Brasil the show is in it’s eleventh edition in the most expensive airtime on brazilian Tv with something like 20 million viewers per episode. In this edition seventeen people were in the house and if you don’t know each week one person has to leave.Today it was elimination day and one of the tree selected players was a transexual named Ariadna. The public decided by more than fifty percent and the transexual was out of the game. I’m not sure why did the public react this way but i would like to point a few things. When the show started lest week it was said a transexual was going to participate and it was asked him/her not to tell the other participants and to act like a regular girl. And that’s what happened. The public knew something the participants didn’t. As the days went by Ariadna kissed and flirted but already in the first week was selected by the other participants to the first public voting. As he/she left the house only his/her ex. was waiting as the family said they have nothing to do with Ariadna. The ex. asked not to be show in Tv. He didn’t feel confortable with the situation. After this circus i got a little seek. Maybe i’m conservative. I don’t know. What i think i know goes like this: Nobody had the right to intentionally force a situation of deception like that with no punishment and the brazilian Tv channel Globo should not be different. Also to display such an easy target as this transexual to get viewers attention is disgusting. We had to witness the deception and the sad truth of his/her controversial life where people don’t want do be recognized as his/her partner/family/friend. it was like one of those oddities circus and i never liked those kinds of places. To explore the unfortunate side of human life is always disturbing. I know sometimes it helps Tv stations but this time it seamed to cause aversion on the public. If they were interested in this freak show they would vote for Ariadna to stay. Now what scares me is how far the people behind this show would go for greed. How exposed and how cheap human beings are these days. How twisted are the values where this person accept to participate in it and how the station accepts to display it like this. It was a sad show.
