Tonight, Fox News will show viewers the first episode of the mother of all reality TV Shows: The Great Debate.

The Top 10 contestants vying for the title of GOP Nominee will hold nothing back on stage in the premiere installment of the debate season melodrama.

Will real estate mega star and former “Celebrity Apprentice” host Donald Trump drown out his competition? Will former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush be able to take back the limelight and re-establish his position on the top of the polls? Will New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie bring his Sopranos-esque persona to the table and steal the show? Tune in at 9 p.m. ET to see all of the action.

And to get a better idea of what to expect going into tonight's debate -- here are some thoughts from a Reality TV Expert featured in a DecodeDC bonus podcast.
