to:

* ''[[Series/FaceOff Face Off]]'' has the confession cam but, due to the general FriendlyRivalry among the competitors, they use it almost exclusively to express their thoughts on the theme of the challenges, as well as to explain screwups and decisions made in the creation stage. In the reveal stage, the contestants talk about the final results of their work as they are revealed to the judges.

* [[DoctorPhil Dr. Phil]] typically embeds a camera crew with his guests a couple of weeks/days before they appear on his show; the preparatory footage thus collected always includes several Confession Cams.

* On ''GhostHunters'', TAPS members frequently use the ConfessionCam to explain the terminology used in their investigations. More often than note, though, they merely describe to the audience what we just witnessed actually being filmed. It can get tiresome.

* Used in ''Film/{{Showtime}}'' for the Reality ShowWithinAShow of the same name. Since this was a police-themed reality show, the two protagonists are contractually-obligated to spend at least 5 minutes a day in the booth with the camera. [[EddieMurphy Trey]] uses the camera to the full extent, complaining about Mitch and boasting about his own skills. [[RobertDeNiro Mitch]] does anything in the booth ''but'' its intended purpose (e.g. reading a newspaper, shaving, making fun of Trey).

* The diary room in ''BigBrother'' would be the second most common form.
** Additionally, both ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' and ''BigBrother'' use confessionals of the actual voting, with both apologies to the person being voted for and the vitriolic rants against them.

In {{Reality Show}}s, a camera which is set up in an isolated location (a small room or, in outdoor environs, a secluded area), where the show's participants appear individually to speak candidly about tactics, motivations, the other players, etc. A common feature of the RealityTVShowMansion. In many cases, ConfessionCam interviews are produced in such a way that they can be spliced into the regular footage at any point with ManipulativeEditing, and may be used several episodes away from when they actually took place. A few very GenreSavvy competitors (most of them female) have circumvented that by noticeably changing their hairstyles or make-up every day, very effectively limiting how much the footage can be misplaced.
