Philippines: Watching Pinoy Big Brother

Overwrite views the popular reality TV show Pinoy Big Brother from a Baudrillardian lense: ‘When one watches the show, where is the center-point? Who is watching who? And which side stands on reality? Does it mean that the actors are showcasing reality because they are in the “reality show”? Or is it that they are emulating reality for the audience who is actually in reality, thus they present it as a “reality show”?’
