Reality Tv shows should be banned because it leaves a huge impact on the people that are in the show. It alters the way others act upon them and the way they act upon themselves it changes what they do and their behavior in the real world. An implication of this dates back to 2013 when Kylie Jenner admitted that she only really had three of four hours of a school day bearing in mind that she was one of the people in the reality tv show 
'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' this show that being a part of a reality tv show does effect what you do in every day life.

I think reality t,v shows shouldn't be banned because you get people watching the series/show, that relate to what is being put on a play...actors are not forced to take play in the entertainment industry...however they are convinced by the fame and fortune.,,

Win awarded to: Mharman
First off, although iamthereleast123 offered a legitimate argument, after Mharman came up with a simple rebuttal, iamthereleast123 began forfeiting rounds until the end of the match. Mharman obviously wins this debat because his opponent only offered one argument that was disproven by Mharman.

Win awarded to: iamtherealest123

iamtherealest123 constructed a proper argument in the debate format, presenting a solid point supported by an example. They further reinforced their argument by explaining their example and how it correlates to their point. To end his argument, iamtherealest123 provided a summary of what they just said. iamtherealest123 essentially followed the PEEL format for his argument. In contrast, Mharman simply provided a one-line rebuttal that had no real format or structure. Mharman did not elaborate on their ideas.

Win awarded to: iamtherealest123
The pro debater give explanation and support that expresses his concern using logic with emotion yet not enough reason for reality television being banned. The con debator spoke a statement and logic but not convincing enough for reality television to not be banned.

Nice one. I appreciate the debate instead of having 1 round surrender.

PRO made a single argument, that Reality shows negatively impact the participants. They backed this up with a single, very specific, example.
CON effectively rebutted this one example by pointing out that the participants choose to participate.

With no other arguments to go on, the win had to go to CON. PRO simply failed to make their case.

PRO: You need to give multiple arguments and examples and then support them when they are attacked.
Also, spelling and grammar matter.

CON: Probably could have elaborated more, and presented a counter argument, but the brevity and effectiveness of your rebuttal is actually pretty effective. You were lucky the debate didn't continue though.
