    This study has been devised to look into the ethical standards that are currently in place within the television industry, focusing in particular on the ethics that have been used in reality television and how these have changed as reality television has expanded and grown in popularity. It has become apparent that producers are sacrificing ethical standards and exploiting its participants in order to boost its ratings and provide ‘cheap laughs’ for its audiences. This thesis will look back to the introduction of reality television and how the ethical standards began and how they have changed and been adapted to suit the needs of the producers and production companies rather than the wellbeing of its participants. This study will also look into the discussion of how real reality television truly is and whether audiences are being subjected to a fabricated truth.
