Can there be Mary Sues and Gary Stus in reality shows?

Yes but I think they get voted off early because no one likes anyone that perfect

I'm from the UK and I find it really weird that you have such notions of people being a 'Mary Sue' or whatever. I've never even heard of a Gary Stu!
Why label people like that?
But reality shows want extroverts who are gong to cause controversy - that's what the sort of people who watch reality shows like to see.
They're really dumbed-down viewing, but a lot of people do seem to enjoy them. I've never understood why. It's not as if is really IS 'reality'. They're all semi-scripted, directed, pushed in whatever direction the show's makers want, and many of the people are actually actors anyway.
