I don't think it is a step down because it's just moving from one television show to another.

Only if you look at it from a purely literal sense.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Note I did not say "reality competition series", part A.
I imagine that for a wide swath of humanity that "reality show" encompasses both camps.

Well, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences does not agree with your assessment, so I'm more inclined to go with theirs.

And if this was 2004 I would perhaps agree with you. But as the genre has evolved, a split has formed and the genre is no longer a whole but two separate parts.

Again, I refer you to ATAS' classification.

I'm not being dismissive here, I'm pointing out that you subscribe to the literal point of view. That's all.

The post I made after this one might be more qualified as dismissive, perhaps.

Now I'm curious: What do these reality "stars" earn per episode, and what would a model or case holder earn for a single hour? Because the paycheck might be a step up (and certainly would be an improvement on $0.) She was also on Celebrity Apprentice and received an honorarium/combat pay for being around Donald Trump for as long as she was.

This is the one case where I think the reality show is a step up, because she gets significant screen time and actually talks.

On TPiR, it was point at the toaster/washer and dryer/car/trip to Acapulco and smile. On D/ND, it was open the case and occasionally react to the dollar amount inside. Plus, with the Housewives show, she's not sharing screen time with the other eye candy (in D/ND's case, 25 other women), so there's that.
