Wedding Shows And Viewers

The Growing Popularity of Wedding-Related Shows and how it affects different types of viewers

Albeit a slightly different type of post than what we are use to, but nonetheless will appeal to many of our readers…

Who would have thought that someday you would be able to watch on a television show brides choosing their wedding dress? Well, that is possible now. With the rise of reality shows, there has emerged TV shows portraying the toughest decision of a soon-to-be wife, picking a wedding dress. Some of these TV shows are in a successful long run, for example, Say Yes To The Dress (TLC) which had its debut in 2007, while others remain unknown or are still paving its road to success.

Needless to say, reality shows are a trend, whether it is in the United States or in a different country it is true that these kind of shows are taking over by a storm. With that said, it is important to note that other types of reality shows are already settled in the market, but this newcomer is becoming more and more popular worldwide. Therefore, using Say Yes To The Dress as an example, it is easy to notice how interesting this subject can be. Having its American premiere in the 12th of October 2007 on TLC, the show became a hit and has been broadcasted all over the world. Meanwhile, the UK version goes by the same name and had its debut in 2016, also on TLC, featuring the TV personality Olivia Buckland. The second season started in 2017 and was starred by Welsh fashion designer David Emanuel, the creator of Princess Diana’s wedding dress.

With a successful broadcast for more than 10 years, the show focus solely on the dress and how the bride will react to each and every style shown to her, or, maybe, even paying for a fashion designer to create an unique gown. Therefore, the bride, accompanied by her friends, family and, sometimes, groom, has the mission to choose a dress that fits her budget and taste. In the US version, the main star Randy Fenoli, a renowned American fashion designer, leads each episode with a light-hearted comedy and a hint of sass, capturing not only the viewers’ heart but also the customers’. In the meantime, on the other side, there’s the group brought by the bride, who ends up crying most of the time, giving their heavy and occasionally cruel criticism.

It is a common knowledge that choosing the perfect gown is like finding a needle in a haystack, thus the bride needs to visit several designers before she finds her dream dress. The US program uses that as an eye-catcher, showing the downside of the process as the bride’s choices get torn apart by her so-called helpers that make no effort at keeping it light. That’s where the UK version fails. David Emanuel, a way too kind lead, bears no effort at praising the bride’s choices, who, unlike the American ones, is always decisive in her wants and needs. Therefore, while the US version is a reality show, the UK version serves as an inspirational program that helps a bride through the hardship of choosing a wedding dress.

Common Lie Detector Questions

When it comes to a polygraph test, people find that they are asked all kinds of different problems over the course of their pre-test, the actual polygraph test uk, and the post-test review which comes after. Some questions are designed for a particular purpose, and you’re likely to hear them on more than one occasion. We’re taking a look at some of the most common lie detector test questions that you could hear.

Have you ever told a lie?

This is a question which is asked on a fairly frequent basis when it comes to a polygraph test. This is because the question ‘have you ever told a lie?’ is a common control question. To understand what your vital signs will look like when you’re lying, they ask a question of this kind. This is because most people will in fact lie and say that they’ve never told a lie, to come across as cooperative and truthful. However, this is nearly always a lie in itself, and so the examiner will have a clear understanding of what the vitals look like with a small lie.

You were in born in _____ , right?

This type of question may seem relatively straightforward, but it is in fact not. The examiners will already know about the personal details of the subject, so the year of birth that they offer is going to be wrong. This is a deliberate move and is designed to confuse. The premise being that the more confused someone gets, the more likely that they are to make a mistake and confess to something they’re trying to hide.

What is your connection to _____?

These kinds of questions are ones who can not be answered with just a yes or no answer. The problem with asking closed questions is that you’ll find that people will just answer with one word. This makes it harder to try and get any real information, so examiners often ask more open ended questions during polygraph tests. This means that while they are answering the question, they may feel relaxed enough to go into some detail about their connection to a person or event, which then gives examiners more to work with.

Overall, these are just a few of the different questions which you might encounter while taking a polygraph test. A polygraph test is a potent tool for making sure that someone is telling the truth, but the effectiveness of the trial overall is very much dependant upon the type of questions which you ask. If you focus only on issues which are closed off and require one-word answers, then you may find that you limit the information you can get, and also make it harder to find out if someone is lying. Open ended questions are therefore a better choice from the perspective of gathering information because they’re more likely to generate a significant amount of information and provide a better insight into whether someone is telling the truth or not.
