Ever since the turn of the millennium, free-to-air television has been dominated by one genre: reality television.
Whether it's home cooks putting their 'heart on a plate', punters trying to transform a derelict apartment block into a place for high-end living, or a down-on-his-luck guy looking for the love of his life - we've been glued to reality television, stripped across most nights. But, how real is reality television? And, how much is the action manipulated through editing - as many previous contestants have claimed?
Helping us navigate this is two-time contestant on Australian Survivor, Nick Iadanza. In the 'real world', Nick is a high school English teacher and a self-confessed reality television junkie. He lifts the lid on the genre, talks about being dubbed a 'snake' on Australian Survivor, and gives some tips to help us as viewers know what is real and what is heightened by producers.
You can find Nick on Twitter @nickiadanza and on Instagram @nickiadanza. And you can see Nick competing in both seasons 1 and 5 of Australian Survivor on Tenplay.
