Reality TV and games

Brenton and Cohen: By signing their release forms, contestants agree to end up as statistics, each player's feelings and actions manipulated..leading to infidelity, tears, perhaps heartbreak.
The only original screen genre of the early 21st century is not called ''reality T.V'' for nothing. Sure reality T.V doesn't look like reality, but then neither does reality. Both look like games.
From Gamer theory.
What is Youtube reality then?
