When Reality Doesn't Follow Scripts

Few days ago I watched the Temptation Island wedding special. It was interesting to know that the most unstable relationship on the show proved to be the most unstable relationship in real life. Unfortunately for the show's producers, it took a while for those developments to produce the final result in real life. Reality shows based on dating or challenging romantic relationships are thus impaired in comparison with other kind of reality show. People's feelings and desires don't develop in a way that could provide neatly packed soap opera plots. So, any kind of such shows would require choose unstable, weird and often problematic contestants or elements that artificially "spice" the plot, often on the borderlines of conventional morality and good taste.
