Imagine: What Lessons Would You Learn in Reality TV School?

So you wanna be a professional reality show contestant. It seems like a pretty easy gig — just be an exaggerated version of yourself while singing/racing around the world/working for Donald Trump. There's just one catch: First, you have to get cast, and you just can't seem to make the cut. What's a wannabe reality star to do?

Well, maybe you go to Reality TV School. It's not a joke. For just under $300, you can enroll in the New York-based school's five-week workshop, where students are schooled in dealing with reality TV conflict and staging an audition tape. Or, for just $139, you can check out a one-day version of the curriculum, including a Q&A with a Groomer Has It contestant who "graduated" from the workshop.

Besides finding this generally preposterous, I wonder: What specific lessons would one learn in Reality TV School? Making Offensive Comments to Stir Up Controversy 101? Intro to Being Secretly Evil? Advanced Seminar: Sassing The Judges?

What other common tropes of reality TV could you see this school trotting out? Sound off below!

Awesome! why not? This is America- you should be able to do what you want. If people want to be Reality TV stars, they need to work at it as hard as any other career, this could help you make it!

Wow how incredibly sad and stupid. Then you have these idiots on the show saying that this is the "real" them! What a joke.

As ridiculous as it seems, shows seem to cast the same type of people...I guess if you really want to increase your odds...

All you have to do is be outgoing and a train wreck. They look for people who are willing to divulge their whole life on television. Of course there are the stereotypes...the dumb one, the sexy hot people, the token black person, the mentally unstable. What a total waste of money.
