Fake Tragic Backstories So I Can Go On A Reality TV Show

I don’t actually know the last time I watched a “reality” TV show, but I do remember that the competition based ones LOVE a tragic backstory. I assume that in the years of these shows somehow, utterly inexplicably still existing, that the same few big dramatic stories have lost their edge, and that the TV shows would be scraping the bottom of the barrel for a tragic backstory.

 

So I wondered what mine would be…

This one time, I ripped my nail.

 

I was sneezing and I couldn’t get just one tissue out of the new box.

 

I almost played the pokies once.

 

I’m an aspiring instagram model. 

 

I saw a car nearly crash. Then, at the last minute, it didn’t.

 

The supermarket was out of organic free range eggs one day, so I bought cage eggs. 

 

A zipper broke on my sleeping bag.

 

I once had to wait at a red light. 

 

I was given a pen as a gift, but the ink was black instead of blue.

 

What would your fake tragic backstory be?

  1. Oh, mine would be far more dramatic than a broken nail. Like, on stage, about to give an acceptance speech for some glamorous award, a sneeze happens and I snot the whole front row!

  3. black pens are the worst. Second are red ones.

    My tragic story would be: I just sat down and the remote is juuuuust over there. It is really quite a tear jerker.

  4. This is so funny! All these fake tragic back stories would also qualify you to have a story in the weekly magazines too!

  5. I am often getting the wrong coffee order.
    I tell them exactly what to make and still they do not always do it right.
    Sigh. My coffee is the highlight of my day.

      I could never make coffee. Because I don’t drink it when people say “10 milks and 30 sugars with latte art on top of an elephant” all I hear is “la la la la” because my brain won’t absorb it.

  6. My tragic story would be, the last lolly in the bag was green. Side note – I think green lollies of all kinds should be banned!

      I’m on board with that. We should start a petition.

  7. She accidentally bought Diet Coke.
