    Do not be afraid to get rejected because a reality show idea is something that has to be unique and attractive if it is to be filmed. Wait for the first network to get back to you with a final answer. In case of a rejection, try another television network. But before you do that, remember to go through the script of your reality show proposal and see if you can make any improvements to it.
