🐟 FishTank Tanks 


Reality shows are outlandish by nature. They push absurd personalities into the spotlight and encourage controversial behavior. But while on television, you have to adhere to the FCC’s rules, on the internet, anything is fair game. 

That’s been more clear than ever with the rise of FishTank Live, an obscene reality show competition spearheaded by influencer provocateur Sam Hyde and his prank group Million Dollar Extreme. Viewers have watched as contestants, known as Fish, appear to be waterboarded, swatted, living in filth, and verbally abused by viewers over text-to-speech.

This week, Passionfruit contributor Steven Asarch shares everything you need to know about this dark corner of the internet. It’s a story that explores the most toxic characters online, something all creators should be wary of.
