the term used to loosely describe the occupations of the people regularly appearing on japanese TV.
is based on the english word "talent" (meaning if you say "talent" in a japanese accent, it sounds like "tarento")

however "tarento" need not be talented.
many "tarento" meerly sit in the background, and clap/laugh/cover their mouths/say "OISHII" at the appropriate moments.

usually young, reasonably attractive, girls.
