It has been TruthInTelevision (minus putting the contestants into deathly hazards, [[Horrible/LiveActionTV of course]] ... OhCrap), but BileFascination has its limits. For that matter, see PointAndLaughShow. That said, Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease [[noreallife]]

* ''Series/UnREAL'' portrays its ShowWithinAShow as this. The main characters are producers and assistants on ''Everlasting'', a sleazy parody of ''Series/TheBachelor'' (which, notably, ShowRunner Sarah Gertrude Shapiro had [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory previously worked for]]), manipulating the contestants for the sake of drama. Working on such a show has caused the protagonist Rachel to [[INeedAFreakingDrink become an alcoholic]].

* In the mid-2000s, the French show ''Series/LesGuignolsDeLInfo'' parodied this with Patrick Lelay and Étienne Mougeotte, the leaders of the biggest French channel [=TF1=]. They showed them in competition with M6 to find the most overt-the-top reality show possible, one being called ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnqbF8LJmLs Rape Island]]''.

Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease Even ''Temptation Island'' didn't try to get anyone ''killed''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' had advertisements on the radio for "Liberty City Survivor". It's not a season of ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' set in Liberty City. It's actually a show where they've armed a bunch of recently paroled felons and let them kill each other. (On a side note, the player never encounters the contestants.)

* ''Dead Famous'' by Creator/BenElton is based around detectives investigating a murder on a reality show called ''House Arrest'', an obvious ''Series/Big Brother'' parody. The murder takes place when a contestant [[CampingACrapper goes to the bathroom]] during a task to build a Native American "sweat box" and sit in it - designed by the producer to not only provide cover for the murder (since the box is dark and noisy and has no camera in it) but to encourage the contestants to get drunk and have sex in the supposedly "anonymous" environment. The whole layout of the house, as well as its "rules", are ''also'' designed to encourage the contestants to get drunk and have sex; and most of the tasks are engineered around the idea of causing as much conflict between the "housemates" as possible.
