For the longest time in my life, I refused to watch reality TV shows. I preferred scripted drama over anything “real” people were doing. Of course, this may have had something to do with the fact that I write, and watched shows for stories. It wasn’t until recent years that I gave the genre a chance.
All at once, I found something interesting in these shows, something I didn’t expect. Villains. Yes, I should’ve known that reality TV shows have villains much as any other genre, so I chalk that up to my own naiveté. On the plus side of things, it finally explained a lot to me about why people love reality TV. They love to hate these rapscallions.
This brings me to today’s prompt. Give me someone I just want to love to hate. The right culmination of action, description, dialogue, exposition, or narration will help you to accomplish this task. You don’t have to use all of these fiction-writing tricks, though these bonus kudos are yours if you do. Just remember that I really want to hate (in a good way) the characters you come up with!
