* 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).

* In an episode of ''ThatsSoRaven'', Raven and Chelsea are on a dating game show where they compete for a chance to date a guy. They're filmed via confession cam saying what they really think about each other, but they producer turns them against each other by editing what they say (i.e. Raven's "Chelsea is such a good friend, I would never want to lose her, and that's coming from the heart" is edited to "Chelsea is such a loser, and that's coming from the heart").

* On the Hulu original series Series/{{Battleground}} this occurs. The interviews seem to take place after the ending of the campaign, showing where many of the characters are.

* 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.

* Seen, of course, in the faux-reality show ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland''. Like much of the show, it invokes the RuleOfFunny, so expect it to be used when it quite logically and explicitly cannot. For many reasons, including the fact that the confession booth is also an outhouse. Which is sometimes in use. When the camera is on. Thankfully, above belly button level.

Trope name comes from an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' which parodied RealityTV; in this episode, the house which served as location for the reality ShowWithinAShow featured a closet equiped with a camera, dubbed the "Confessional" (which Marge interpreted quite literally).

* A regular feature of ''Series/TheMuppets'', which has a similar format to ''Series/TheOffice''. In the first episode Gonzo uses it to decry the whole concept, saying it just gets used for cheap laughs based on HypocriticalHumor. We then cut back to the meeting, where he tells Kermit it's a great device and he loves it.

* In the ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' DLC Enter the Dominatrix, Jane [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Valder(r)am(m)a]] interviews many of the Saints about one of their "deleted scenes," a story that was partially "shot" but never released called Enter the Dominatrix. It's implied that many elements of ETD were later reconfigured and reused for ''Saints Row IV'' itself, mirroring SR4's partial origins in the unreleased Enter the Dominatrix DLC for ''[[VideoGames/SaintsRowTheThird Saints Row:]]'' '''''[[VideoGames/SaintsRowTheThird The Third]]'''''.
