How bad do you want to be on TV? Bad enough that maybe you could be tricked into being held captive for two months in a villa outside Istanbul, because there actually was no show? BECAUSE YES, THAT HAPPENED. The nine women weren't harmed but "were told to fight each other, to wear bikinis and to dance by the villa's pool." Which, sounds pretty much like my last weekend, only much longer, and therefore better? But also, how do you know that the reality show for which you are "auditioning" is a real reality show, not a prison? There are a couple of ways to know, and one of them is that there are cameras filming things. But seriously this is clearly the worst thing about our modern age, the people being held captive, so much worse than blogs and Facebook. This is like, what if you were forced every day to update your status on a Facebook that wasn't actually connected to the Internet and no one could see it? Oh and also losing your liberty. Bad too.
