In today's reality-television saturated market, there is a show for just about anything.

You can find true love, lose hundreds of pounds, swap wives, dance your heart out, hone your career skills, exploit your children, nurse your competitive side and if so inclined, go to rehab.

With so many shows, stars, spin-offs and repeat offenders, you'd think there is something in it for the people who participate. But, aside from a little money, a lot of drama and a potential 15 minutes of fame, the benefits one reaps from starring on reality TV can be few compared to the repercussions you inherit.
