Perception of Selected Filipino Teenagers in Intramuros, Manila on Their Exposure to Pinoy Big Brother

...selected Filipino Teenagers in Intramuros, Manila on their exposure to Pinoy Big Brother Robles, John Darel Catacutan1 Refugia, Jose Alberto Cabotaje1 Jonalou SJ. Labor2 1AB Communication Arts Seniors, Institute of Communication, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Colegio de San Juan de Letran 2 Faculty, Language Area, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Colegio de San Juan de Letran ABSTRACT Pinoy Big Brother of ABS-CBN Channel 2 is the Philippine version of the reality television show Big Brother. Television’s effects on viewers especially teenagers is a subject that has been extensively studied in the last twenty years and whose impact extends farther than most people realize. Many studies have focused on how television programs that appear to be “real” (such as new and daytime dramas) alter the viewers’ perception of reality (or social reality). However, there is a lack of qualitative data to either support or disprove this belief. This study thus aims to describe and discuss the pluses, minuses and interests (PMI) of the perception of Pinoy Big Brother to teenagers. Forty selected teenagers who are a fan of the show were the participants of this qualitative inquiry. Initially, the teenagers were made to fill out forms for purposes of profiling their baseline characteristics. The teenagers were asked individually to discuss both their positive and negative perceptions to Pinoy Big Brother. Data gathered were carefully gathered by a repertory grid,......

Reality Tv and Modern Culture

...What Reality Television Says About Modern Culture: Essay One The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines reality television as “programming that features videos of actual occurrences.” Reality television has become an increasingly favorable genre of television shows, but society often fails to recognize how unrealistic these superficial shows have become. Many people enjoy reality television due to its ability of making viewers laugh, and step back from their own lives for a period of time. This television craze proves that modern culture has an altered view of reality, and has become progressively superficial due to the lack of education on the topic. Society claims that these shows are realistic, however they are often a scripted dramatization thriving to imitate real scenarios. Reality television allows viewers to escape the reality of their own lives because it is a removed way to experience emotions, and these shows that are supposedly “reality-based” are never filmed in a realistic setting. When viewers watch reality television, it offers them time to escape from the reality of their own lives. Producers carefully choose cast members that are diverse and represent a large population of society, to avoid criticism, but to also allow viewers to relate to at least one specific cast member. The average Canadian watches a show such as “Survivor” (which offers a one million dollar grand prize to the winner) and envies the superficial status that is temporarily given......

When Reality Tv Gets Too Real

...“Reality” television [738 words] Summary of When Reality TV Gets Too Real by Jeremy W. Peters [153 words] In When Reality TV Gets Too Real, Jeremy W. Peters debates the ethics of not stopping dangerous situations from happening on Reality Television. For this, several examples of such occurrences are cited, first when a participant took up drunk driving in the show Intervention, as well as similar episodes in Breaking Bonaduce, The Real World and Road Rules, and citing lawsuits against Big Brother, Kid Nation and Extreme Makeover, the last one getting sued for something else entirely. A number of occasions is also named where the producer of Intervention stops dangerous situations from developing, namely when to prevent suicide, drunk driving and to call paramedics in the event of an overdose. The article also states that the practise of simply filming while not stopping developing catastrophes are not technically illegal but somewhat unethical. The text ends with the comment “It's a very, very delicate balance”, leaving the issue open for interpretation. Outline of text 2 through 4 [252 words] In When Reality TV Gets Too Real, it is debated that Reality TV has a habit of creating dangerous or traumatic situations for viewers, simply because doing so is legal and gives higher rating.

1984 Power

...Korea wrote out Shin's destiny for him from the moment oppressors forced Shin's parents to mate. Not only did his life consist of “beatings, hunger, and labor” (Hiatt 5), but he had to “snitch on fellow inmates” (Hiatt 5) to survive. Miraculously, beating all odds Shin was able to escape Camp 14, and after many attempts, he was able to work his way into the United States. Upbringing in this environment can have many tolls on the emotions of the individual; the case for Shin is no exception. Constant torture and agony stripped away all understanding of “concepts such as love, trust or kindness,” (Hiatt 5). For any child witnessing a murder can have tremendous effect on their mental stability. However, when 14-year-old Shin saw his mother and brother executed in front of his very eyes he felt no “no pity or regret" (Hiatt 5). After everything Shin has been through, it comes as no surprise that he believes he embeds a hallow soul with little to no emotions. Setting out to remake himself morally will be the toughest task he is going to face.Although he has “‘escaped physically’”, he believes to have not “‘escaped psychologically.’” (Hiatt 19). Dystopian authors, such as Orwell and Gilliam, provide current day societies a warning for the future that has slowly become the world we live in today. The writers illustrate the degrading effects of emotion within citizens of a manipulative and controlling government. The political powers, in 1984, oppress and corrupt its citizen through......

Media's Affect on Youths

...Media’s Affect on Youths    Youths today are constantly watching television shows. Some spend the majority of their free time sitting down on the couch and watching reality sitcoms such as “Jersey Shore” or “Big Brother”. This impacts today’s young greatly by teaching them negative behavior and language, making them insecure about their physical appearance and making sexuality more essential. Reality sitcoms have a greater impact on today’s youths then we would like to believe. The negative language and behavior of youths is mostly being learned from these reality shows. Six major professional societies in the United States- the American Psychological Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Psychiatric Association-… concluded [in 2000] that “the data point overwhelmingly to a casual connection between media violence and aggressive behavior in some children” (Anderson, Craig and Bushman, Brad 11-12). This comes from the fact that male and female equality has gotten much worse; most women are being viewed as something they are not when they are referred to as “bitches” or “sluts”. When this sort of name calling escalates it can lead to greater things such as a verbal or even physical fight, “Recent large-scale longitudinal studies provide converging evidence linking frequent exposure to violent media in childhood......

Dystopian Literature Analysis

...Literature often reflects the society we live in. Similarly, dystopian literature explores the unpleasant and overlooked components of society. 1984 was written by George Orwell in the year 1949 to reflect on the possibility of a totalitarian government in the near future. Furthermore, the book examined the harsh reality of living under total control of the government. It also demonstrated Winston Smith’s, the protagonist, efforts in challenging the whole system. Therefore, an analysis of Winston’s attempt in defeating his government and its outcome illustrates the manner in how to handle atrocities and evil under authoritarian rule. Winston’s decision to challenge the Party was more important to him than preserving his safety and dignity because of his personality and beliefs, his hatred for the Party, and his hope for a better future. Winston’s distinct personality and beliefs in life was a significant cause for his rebellion. His individuality and thoughtfulness allowed him to see through the deceptions and the evil such as history being altered, lying about food ration, and Syme’s vaporization (Orwell, 2008, pp. 11 & 15-16). More importantly, he couldn't adopt doublethink because he was intelligent and wanted to hang on to the last thread of humanity (Moustaki, Nikki, and Gilbert Borman, 2016). For instance, he desired the freedom to say two plus two equaled four and yearned for love and intimacy deeply (Orwell, 2008, pp. 7, 19, 29-32). Winston’s built up hate and anger......

The Impact Reality Tv Has on Our Youth

...The Impact Reality Television Has On Our Youth Television serves nearly 30 hours of entertainment to children 8 to 18, weekly. Reality television is a phenomenon that is sweeping the globe. These programs are widely viewed by kids, tweens, and teens. Many of these kids idolize reality stars and mimic their every move and their vocabulary. This alleged reality is negatively affecting the well-being of children world-wide. Kids tend to imitate what they observe on television and these programs typically support the worst attributes of behavior. (Ludwig 2003). While reality television can be positive, parents should monitor the programs watched by their children due to the negative affects these shows contribute to children’s overall health. It is a known fact that television influences our lives and the lives of our children. Today, kids are watching more reality television and revering those they see. They are basing their lives, their wants, their desires on what they perceive as real on these programs. This influence is shown in lower self-esteem, poor level of respect displayed, and the ideals of happiness our youths possess. Research presented by Dr. Helen Street revealed that children who suffer from depression will believe beauty, wealth, and popularity leads to fulfillment. (Genesis Health, 2003). The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) also shares concern that this exposure to reality media carries health risks to children. These risks include......
