"While there has been a significant amount of research done on reality television over the past decade, only a small portion of that work has focused on gender, despite the plethora of issues around gender and sexuality found in reality TV programming. This anthology fills the gap."--Susan Murray, coeditor of"Reality TV: Remaking Television Culture"
