But, a recent study from The Girl Scout Research Institute shows the effects of Reality T.V. on girls.
13-year-old Alexandria Falzarano isn't naive when it comes to what is really happening on her television.
"All these girls, and they're all plotting things against each other, and then they're dating each others boyfriends, and it's all mixed matched," said Falzarano.
She says that Reality T.V. star attitudes and personalities rub off on girls at her school.
"Snooki, for example, is a big role model for some of the girls at Clinton Middle School," she said.
The new Girl Scout study "Real to Me" found several different outcomes from girls who watch these different kinds of shows.
"Girls actually accept and expect a higher level of aggression, drama, bullying in their lives. They put more emphasis on their physical appearances," sad Media Manager, Kim Dunne.
And Alexandria sees just that at Clinton Middle School with some of the girls behavior.
"They make themselves look more provocative because of what they see on T.V." she said.
8th grader, Herika Fernandez understands why some girls her age take on the role of behavior on television.
"The see something happen and when they find themselves in that situation, they do the same thing that person did, but it won't really work out like it did in the T.V. because it's not real," said Fernandez.
But, not everything found in the study was negative.
"They also find themselves as leaders, or the potential to be a leader within their communities as role models," said Dunne.
And as for Alexandria and Herika, they won't let this "pretend" television effect their attitudes.
