The US general tv audience is insanely prudish compared to other countries, I learned that several years ago when I left MTV on late and Geordie Shore came on and it was like half the house was getting laid at the same time.

 

Yes, our Survivor is pretty diferent. It usually takes almost three months and there's a live show that's last almost 3and a half hours every thursday. Also a 4 hour debate in Sundays and another kind of live show on Tuesdays, also 4 hours. All in the most watched network and always leads ratings.

And obviously hook-ups are shown. In that case, US TV is very tamed... I really don't undestand why us realitys doesn't show that kind of things. I can agree that thing like this

Are maybe a little bit to much, but idk......

I didnt know you were from Spain! That's wild 11 hours in 3 days, I dont the have the attention span for that.

Thats one of the clips I saw. They showed her moaning and with her legs spread around his waist. They would lose so many sponsors if they were to show it like that here on cable or like CBS. Europeans are more open mind it in that sense.

I have also seen clips of your temptation island and that one is also ver graphic for this country lol

Me either. I usually can't even finish a live show, it gets boring for me cause it's the same format for everything: Survivor, Big Brother, Temptation Island....

I've seen very graphics thing in prime time in TV, like people seaeching for cum stamps in other peoples bedsheets and things like that, nothing susprises me anymore in our TV. Big Brother used to be wild in that sense... until a rape happend and a lot of sponsors started boicoting the show and now is in hiatus.

Also nudity is more common. If someone gets naked or a nipple flashes usually they dont cover it. Survivor was my first US show and it was a real cultural shock seing blurred buts.

Also another cultural shock, and a thing that keep me put of The Challenge for many years (until Big Brother players jumped in), was the fact that men and women don't compete with one another. I still don't understand why tbh

This crazy to me! Imagine filming some type of survivor show since February even though while filming they tell you about covi19 you dont know or experience the magnitude of it. Then when you are eliminated 3 months later you see all the craziness that have gone on the Real World while you were away. Her faces watching that compilation video and realizing how crazy it has been:
