When it comes to websites in Australia about reality TV, there are very few to choose from. The original and best however is realityravings.com, and the woman behind it is Emma Ashton. A self confessed reality nut, she has been following the genre well before it was even considered a genre, and Survivor is amongst her favourite. But what are her thoughts on the possible return of an Australian version? And which contestant from Philippines tickles her fancy more so than others?
Reality Ravings is billed as ‘Australia’s leading reality TV site’ and through numerous appearances on Australian TV shows such as A Current Affair, Today Tonight and The Morning Show, it’s not hard to see why Emma is in high demand to talk about the genre in this country.
In our chat with Emma, she talks about the limited number of reality TV websites in Australia, the development of Survivor over the years, why she has to get guest writers when it comes to writing about the show for her site, her thoughts and predictions for the Philippines, how she has a habit of ‘forgetting spoilers’, why she believes it’s time to bring back an Australian version of Survivor as well as which reality show she wants to be on and which Survivor contestant she has stronger than usual feelings for.
