    In 2007, Gordon Ramsay ripped apart struggling New Jersey chef Joseph Cerniglia on “Kitchen Nightmares,” screaming: “Your business is about to f - - king swim down the Hudson.”

    Three years later, Cerniglia jumped off the George Washington Bridge.

    His shocking death was one of at least 21 reality-contestant suicides since 2004 — afflicting lesser-known programs such as “Storage Wars” as well as ratings mammoths like the “Bachelor” franchise, which has lost three former stars to suicide.

    Insiders raise questions about the types of people attracted to these shows — and the screening process and support offered.

    they were all likely sick to begin with. reality TV is the bottom end of attention whoring and when that doesn't pan out the only options are a real job or offing oneself

    Yeah, going through a couple articles on it, I saw more than a few were on anti depressants. Some had mental state problems before the shows. That's who these shows want thought. They want craziness.

    I thought there were more Celeb Rehab deaths. Maybe they were just diminished health due to drug use.

    Why would anyone agree to do one of those shows unless they really thought alot of themselves. And all their career needs is for somebody to see them. They will be recognized instantly for the superstar they are. So they do anything for the chance. Because they are superstars.

    :whythelongface?:

    Sometimes these nutjobs marry a real creep for the chance. But end up horizontal with a blind kitn taking pictures if itself for a paid fan base in india.
    Fame just doesnt happen. So it's that or suicide.
