The Real McCoy

Reality TV is a mixed bag of entertainment that you might have watched as a pastime to amuse yourself. People like it for all sorts of reasons. One might like the social interaction of people, the attitudes, and acting because it is a theatre like production with real people.

One woman who is about to star in Brazil’s reality show is Ariela Carasso, a single mother searching for love. She is a kind wonderful woman on a mission in the fourth season of Love is Blind Brazil which mixes and matches couples via pod meets between walls, so no one can see each other.  If they meet the right one and there is a proposal, then they try until the alter. The participants have already been married or lived with a partner and are looking for new love. Check out the trailer (in Portuguese) for first-hand peek before its Netflix launch 19th June, 2024. Will any of them actually tie the knot and marry? It’s a don’t miss!

Another pioneering show, titled Keeping Up with the Kardashians, premiered in the USA on October 14, 2007. The reality series centers around the members of the Kardashian-Jenner blended family, focusing on the sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloé.

Kim Kardashian became a celebrity in 2007, after selling a pornographic film featuring ex-boyfriend, singer Ray J, which enabled the family to rise to stardom. They appeared together on the highly popular reality television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

In the ever-evolving landscape of celebrity wealth, the Kardashian-Jenner clan, reportedly worth over $2 billion combined, continues to dominate, with each member carving out their own niche in the world of entertainment and entrepreneurship.

To start making money through sponsorships and promotions on Instagram, typically you need at least 10,000 followers. However, the exact number can vary depending on factors such as engagement rate, niche, and quality of content.

On average, earnings tend to correspond with these follower numbers: Nano-influencer: 1,000–10,000 followers ($10–$100 per post) Micro-influencer: 10,000–50,000 followers ($100–$500 per post) Mid-tier influencer: 50,000–500,000 followers ($500–$5,000 per post).

Nowadays with social media there is a new way to make it. Those participants who are successful in gaining followers can climb the ladder to prosperity.

Good luck to Ariela!

Have a great day!
