Mumbai: Reality shows that it is becoming a craze in the country as people love to watch them. They connect to every competitor.
But these days, viewers feel the essence of reality shows has faded, and these contestants are jumping from show to show. They either become winners or runners-up on the show.
There are no new contestants to watch, and half of the contestants have been seen on some previous shows.
For example, Indian Idol 10 winner Salman Ali was previously seen on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and was one of the show’s finalists. Neelanjana Ray, who was declared the winner of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2022, was the second runner-up on Indian Idol Season 10.
There are many of these contestants who have been traded from one show to another where they either made the final on one show or won the other.
Audiences feel that contestants from other shows should be out of luck if they are already finalists or finalists. The other candidates who have not had the chance to show their talent lose an opportunity.

Here’s what the public had to say about this new trend.
Rahul Sharma: Reality TV shows have become a joke these days where the contestants and winners of the show don’t seem real. They look fake or planned. Sometimes we’ve seen some of the contestants from another show where they lost, and all of a sudden after a few years they’ll come to another show and lift the trophy, which I don’t understand.
Pia Das: I don’t understand the concept of declaring a winner who has already been a finalist or finalist on another show. It doesn’t make sense because someone who’s very raw and new should have the opportunity to take home the trophy and not someone who’s already been a finalist or runner-up on the show.
Kabir Khan: The winners these days in reality shows have become a joke and we all know things are pre-planned and they don’t meet voting requirements. Today, reality shows have become a crisscrossing of contestants from show to show and it becomes a repeat.
Sonia Sing: New talent wouldn’t stand a chance as reality show creators give chances to contestants who have been on other shows and new ones get sidelined. In the mind of the public, already the talent of the previous one is blocked so they don’t vote for them. On the other hand, constraints that have been finalists on other shows become winners and take home the trophy.
Well, that’s the harsh reality of reality TV shows.
