Working reality shows is a different beast. Constant run and gun, ever changing schedules, zero time for preparation, dealing with unresponsive PR people, etc. These are the challenges we endure.
That being said once finding rhythm with a crew, it is best to learn where the go to spots are to make everyone's life just a little easier. Set up's are easier and requirements for filming are a tenth of what is needed for features/commercials etc.
Just an observation. Love the reality shows schedules also! Compared to film, it's possible to have a real life, which is an amazing plus in this business.
