Reality Blurred (stylized as reality blurred) is an entertainment website about reality television[6][7][8] that includes news about reality TV[9] and reviews. It was "the first reality television blog"[10] and is "widely regarded as the blog to go to for reality television news"[11]

reality blurred was founded in July 2000[10][5] by Andy Dehnart[1][12][13], an American journalist and member of the Television Critics Association[14]. He is the editor[2][3][15] of the website.

It was an early weblog modeled after Jim Romenesko's MediaNews.[10] Its original tagline was "Babysitting television's bastard child with reality TV news, reviews, and analysis"[16]

It published the Survivor (American TV series) contract[17] and rulebook[18] in 2010.


Entertainment Weekly reviewed the site in its September 8, 2000 issue with an A grade.[7]

The New York Times called reality blurred "the most schooled blog on America's guiltiest pleasure"[19] and Newsday called it "indispensable"[20] and USA Today called it "flawless".[21]

The Morning Call said the site "takes a shrewd and skeptical look at the genre without sliding into condescension" and "succeeds because its clever creator genuinely likes reality TV -- he cares when shows are done badly and he wants to vent about it."[11]
