Probably the most entertaining reality show
20 November 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

As everyone has become all too conscious of, "reality" tv is scraping the bottom of the bowl to come up with premises for shows now, however this is one reality show that is entertaining(at least) to watch. Honestly it's despicable, low-down, and often times in poor taste, but it is technically a TRUE reality. The fact that you are seeing people completely scared out of their mind is the only reason to watch it. These people don't have the time to connive into another episode or put on a pretty face for the camera. The poor souls on this show are sometimes so close to hysteria that the producers end the skit prematurely.

When faced with watching elimidate, survivor, or queer eye, I'd have to cast my vote for Scare tactics. If nothing else I would award it with the title of most entertaining reality show.
