A Guilty Pleasure
I admit: this show is my guilty pleasure. It is one of the reality TV shows that doesn't make fun of or exploit the contestants. Unlike many reality shows, it is not heavy on profanity. However there is much commercialism as the show promotes CosmoGirl! and Neutrogina (sp?) a lot (one of the judges on the "Prom Court" is the CosmoGirl! editor-in-chief). The girls' social behavior on the show is iffy. Most girls are selfless and are trying to build friendships with the other contestants, while others plan on "acting like a friend to their face and then 'wham!' crushing them in the competition." I also do not like how the show says that all girls' highest ambition is to be America's Prom Queen (come on, seriously...we do have higher ambitions). All-in-all, the show is cute and interesting to watch, and I love to see all the prom dresses to scope out my own.
