I wasn't talking about the format but rather the way it was presented. I went in expecting, well, reality
. What I got was as engineered as any professional wrestling show. The show isn't even ballsy enough to recognise that wrestling is scripted - the show takes place entirely within kayfabe.
Then again, I suppose what passes for reality these days is half a dozen posh twats mumbling a vague script at each other - or, alternately, half a dozen hillbillies yelling it at each other. In that sense, British Boot Camp is as hugely overproduced and blatantly staged as any modern reality show. Or professional wrestling show.
