How to Get on a Reality TV Show

I wrote a guide to how to get on a reality TV competition show, based on years of watching those kinds of shows.

Is anyone watching "So You Think You Can Dance?", "The Voice," and "Platinum Hit"? I'm watching all three. SYTYCD has started out well this season; there's a lot of people I'd like to see perform in the Vegas rounds. "The Voice" is promising so far, but I'm wondering how the live shows will go. "Platinum Hit" was just... weak. Most of the songwriting failed to impress me, and I really don't understand where the judges are coming from or how these contestants were chosen. It couldn't have been simply based on songwriting ability.
