And yet, these issues rarely seem to concern network executives or producers of reality television shows (or radio, film, television, sport or pretty much any industry ever really).

A problem with anger management is undoubtedly the kind of thing casting agents would be aware of. Then there was the female contestant of 2016's Married At First Sight.

Claire Verrall was clear about suffering PTSD related to a random violent street attack the year prior, yet producers paired her with Jono Pitman, a man who had been court ordered to undertake anger management classes following his part in a 2008 pub brawl.

If you've been following the journey of Sophie Monk in the most recent Australian season of The Bachelorette, you'll be suitably apprised of three facts.1.

Sophie Monk is quite possibly the most likeable person to have ever graced Australian television screens2.

Countless other men and their families and friends have had to deal with the impact of this kind of violence.

It's fuelled by alcohol and testosterone and is overwhelming perpetrated by and against young men in Colman's age bracket.

Networks need to start reflecting the values they claim to have and paying closer attention to the ethics of their decisions.

Because if nothing else, at a time when the exposure of violence and abuse in the entertainment industry is just starting to break open, continued decisions like these are going to prove very bad for business.

This last one might seem to have come out of left field, but it's undeniably true.

As recent reports have uncovered, the (now eliminated) contestant Blake Colman has a history of violence that should have prevented him from even being considered for a television platform at all let alone one in which he vies for the affections of a woman.

Earlier this year, Colman pleaded guilty to a vicious assault in Perth that left a man paralysed and unconscious in a pool of his own blood.
