TOP 5 MOST FRANCHISED REALITY SHOW
"FEAR FACTOR"


The show pits contestants against each other to complete a series of stunts better and/or quicker than all the other contestants for a grand prize of US$50,000. From Seasons One to Five, the contestants were generally three men and three women, all playing for themselves, but in Season Six, the show moved to a permanent format of four teams of two people, each with a pre-existing relationship with one another, all playing for a shared prize of the same amount. The show is hosted by comedian Joe Rogan and executive produced by Matt Kunitz.
Fear Factor has received criticism from the general public mainly because of the show's second stunt, which intends to disgust its viewers

"AMAZING RACE"

The Amazing Race, sometimes referred to as TAR, is a reality television game show in which teams of two people (with one exception), which have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at "pit stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including planes, taxis, rental cars, trains, buses and boats. The clues in each leg point the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country or culture where they are located. Teams are progressively eliminated until three teams are left; at that point, the team which arrives first in the final leg is awarded a large cash grand prize, usually one million U.S. dollars.

"AMERICAN IDOL"


The program seeks to discover the best singer in the country through a series of nationwide auditions. The outcomes of the later stages of this competition are determined by public voting by phone. The format features four judges who give critiques of the contestants' performances: record producer Randy Jackson; pop singer and choreographer Paula Abdul; and music executive Simon Cowell. Beginning with season 8, songwriter Kara DioGuardi will be the show's fourth judge; all previous seasons had only three judges. The show is hosted by former children's game show emcee and television personality Ryan Seacrest. Last Season is filled with lots of controversies. Paula left the show, followed by Simon, then Ellen DeGeneres and then followed by Kara. It is confirmed that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will replace the former judges.


TOP 2 MOST FRANCHISED REALITY SHOW
"SURVIVOR"

Survivor is a popular reality television game show format produced in many countries throughout the world. In the show, contestants are isolated in the wilderness and compete for cash and other prizes. The show uses a progressive elimination, allowing the contestants to vote off a tribe member, until only one final contestant remains and wins the title of "Sole Survivor". The format for Survivor was created in 1992 by Charlie Parsons, and the first production of it was the US TV show Survivor in 1992 on CBS. The concept of Exile Island was first introduced in Survivor: Palau, when a single contestant was made to stay on a beach by herself. The concept was later expanded in Survivor: Panama and was used in its successors Survivor: Cook Islands, Survivor: Fiji and Survivor: Micronesia and more.


THE MOST FRANCHISED REALITY SHOW
"BIG BROTHER"

Big Brother is a reality television show. In each series, which lasts for around three months, a group of people (normally fewer than sixteen at any one time) live together full-time in the Big Brother House, isolated from the outside world but under the continuous gaze of television cameras. The Housemates try to win a cash prize by avoiding periodic, usually publicly-voted,
evictions from the house. Though each country has made its own adaptations and changes to the format, the general concept has stayed the same: "housemates" are confined to a specially designed house where their every action is recorded by cameras and microphones at all times and they are not permitted any contact with the outside world. In most versions, at regular intervals, normally once weekly (although in most early series it was every two weeks), the housemates are invited to vote to have one of a number of nominated housemates evicted from the House. In some cases, two housemates may be evicted simultaneously (a "double eviction"), or rarely, no housemates will be removed for that week.
