I don't know how many reality TV shows there are... but 79 open positions for a industry hints at a total of somewhere around 1500-1600 writers for those all those "reality TV" shows.  Google gave me a list of 50 reality TV shows so that puts the number of writers per reality TV show somewhere between 2 and 32. 

Why do they need so many writers for television that proports to be unscripted?
