‘A Grande Conquista’ exposes desolation to contributors deluded by media visibility and a disproportionate prize for sacrifice
“There isn’t any triumph with out loss, no victory with out struggling, no freedom with out sacrifice.” The phrase written by JRR Tolkien in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ would function a slogan for essentially the most dedicated contributors of ‘The Nice Achievement’.
File’s actuality present calls for absolute dedication from anybody who aspires to win the competitors. Starvation, chilly, lack of privateness, improper hygienic circumstances, compelled coexistence with hostile and poisonous profiles and, above all, the overexposure of 1’s personal weaknesses and failures, together with ethical ones.
A picture from this system was highlighted on social networks: the competitor Dicesar Ferreira sleeping sitting on the ground, between a wall and a vase, within the exterior space of the poor state of affairs that reproduces a village. Swollen face, uncomfortable garments, below the chilly autumn of São Paulo.
The scene drew comparability with the hundreds of homeless folks in São Paulo who face an identical or worse state of affairs each night time. The competitor had the choice of organising a tent with a mattress, nevertheless, he ended up in that visually degrading state of affairs. There have been numerous demonstrations of solidarity, in addition to criticism from those that noticed a compelled overexposure to maneuver the general public.
In the true world, folks in social vulnerability at all times reside on the borderline between dignity and outrage, life and dying. Most of us cross by them with out seeing them on the sidewalks or just take a detour in order to not hear the decision for alms. As they’re already a part of the decaying city panorama, they do not provoke as a lot pity. They do not exist, they simply take up house.
In the meantime, in actuality reveals like ‘Huge Brother’, ‘A Fazenda’ and ‘A Grande Conquista’, the shortage of sources turns into leisure. A lot of viewers are delighted to see fights over meals, condensed milk, a snug mattress, a bathe with scorching water and bathroom paper. Taking all that away from the opponents, as within the case of Dicesar, awakens sadism within the public that enjoys the misfortune of others.
“Ah, however they agreed to take part and knew what they might face”, argue actuality followers. Why would anybody willingly undergo this torture on digital camera? It’s definitely not simply due to the ambition to earn the meager prize of R$ 1 million supplied by File.
All candidates are conscious that the prospect of victory is minimal. Probably the most priceless factor is the prospect to indicate off to get out of anonymity or to be within the highlight once more within the media. Making the TV look a stepping stone to fame, with attainable monetary good points after elimination.
For that, they do not hesitate to undergo hardships and humiliations – and pay the value charged for the pejorative label of being without end an ‘ex-reality’. Generally they struggle greater than as soon as, like Dicesar. In an interview on Terra’s ‘Tá no Paredão’ in January, he stated that Globo “didn’t embrace him” after ‘BBB10’. Now, it hopes to succeed in the apotheosis – or, a minimum of, not be so shortly discarded – within the rival channel.
To this point, his effort has gone largely unseen. Within the first days, ‘A Grande Conquista’ didn’t attain a median of 5 factors in Ibope. What most resonated with him was the melancholy scene when he ended up overcome by sleep. Indisputably charismatic, the artist looking for the dreamed stardom, recognized by the catchphrase “adooogo”, has extra to indicate. Hopefully there’s time and the version does not wish to spotlight solely its worst.
