Something I noticed about reality shows...

Watching the Amazing Race and occasional season of Survivor, I've noticed you never see the cameramen in these shows. You'd think in either show a cameraman should be seen in a shot or two each episode. If you watch Iron Chef (Original or America) you can always see the close up camermen on screen. I realize there's a lot more room on shows like the Amazing Race and Survivor as well as a lot more footage that can be edited, but it's just something that's bugged me lately, makes me wonder how much (if any) is reshot so a camerman isn't in the shot.
 
I guess it's because with the cameraman there, it takes the viewer out of the zone. It distracts, and takes away from the show.
 
I don't want to see the cameraman . I know he is there.
