Harsh Reality: The Story of Miriam Rivera


It was supposed to be a reality show with a twist. In a sun-drenched villa in Ibiza, six hot guys compete for a cash prize and for the love of the beautiful and mysterious Miriam. It’s meant to be her big break: the moment she becomes the superstar she was born to be. But this is the era of “cruel reality TV” and the show producers have a different goal: they want to surprise the men with the fact... more

4.4 out of 5 stars from 3.8k ratings
  • Beautifully written and produced show

    I heard about this podcast from the book “We See Each Other” by Tre’vell Anderson. Once I’d finished reading I immediately looked this show up and binged it. Miriam’s story was discussed with so much love and care, while also addressing what her story as a trans woman on a dating competition show signified for trans representation in media at the time. Highly recommend.

  • Blame Game

    I hadn’t heard of this show and wouldn’t have watched it anyway. All these years later for the producer to still try to blame the men was astounding. They used Miriam for their own ends as well as the other contestants, how they thought this was okay defies belief. Without wanting to spoil he’s a couple of tasters: it’s really disrespectful to misgender someone, but fine to go to a club with midgets hanging from the ceiling. The best one: I really value my honesty and integrity, that’s why I’m s... more

  • Good… but

    Overall fairly ok podcast, but leaves me feeling confused on what the main message is here. I believe the podcast was created to be more pro-trans than it delivers. more
