Three former North Shore reality TV stars reflect on experience

Victor Arroyo III, "Big Brother" Season 18

Slidell resident and personal trainer Victor Arroyo III was a contestant on last season's "Big Brother."

"I can't speak for all reality TV, only for 'Big Brother,'" Arroyo said. "I know that nothing I did in the house was scripted, nor was I swayed by producers."

That being said, Arroyo said his involvement in one of the more invasive reality shows taught him the artificial constructs -- the sets, the rules of competition -- are "reality," but not "real life."

"It is our reality because, to be honest, 'Big Brother' is not real life," Arroyo said. "You, as a viewer, get to see what happens when you put 16 strangers together competing for $500,000. There is no doubt that makes for great TV."

He said "Big Brother" is unique among reality shows in that it offers a live streamed feed of the activity in the house.
