We’reall obsessed with watching other people’s lives unfold.
We are all really just voyeurs, happilyminding other people’s business and pretending we aren’t.
Honestly, if I’m not cracking open a book or heading to meet friends, I’m most likelylive-tweeting “Married At First Sight” or watching reruns of “Chopped” just to pass the time.
Still, there are levels to our love for reality TV.
The host of wacky characters you subscribe to watching weekly says a lot about your personality.
