Fans Flock to Reality Television Convention

NASHVILLE, Tn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Trekkies have their fan conventions; Beatles fans have their gatherings and now reality show geeks have their own festivals as well.

The first ever Reality TV Convention is taking place in Nashville this weekend and couch potatoes will have a chance to meet and greet celebrities like Johnny Fairplay from Survivor, and American Idol finalist Scott Savol.

Fans will also get a chance to become reality show stars themselves because casting directors from shows like Trading Spouses will also be in attendance.

Organizer Marc Ballard estimates as many as 100 former reality show celebs will extend their 15 minutes of fame at the convention but he admits he’s not sure if the fans are as diehard as Star Trek aficionados.

In his words, “Who knows? Maybe they’ll show up dressed like characters from Survivor.”
