The industry of televising and making money from regular, sometimes mentally and emotionally deficient, everyday people. Laughing at them mercilessly and ridiculing everything about them whilst being broadcast around the world.
American Idol tryouts, America's Got Talent, most MTV shows, Flavor of Love, I Love New York, Tool Academy, Jersey Shore, etc etc
"the tryout show for american idol makes me sick. It's nothing but exploitainment!"
"I am so sick of reality shows. There are no good scripted shows anymore. Everything is exploitainment."
