So Bad, They’re Terrible:The Worst Reality Show Ideas Ever In Life

January 11, 2013 ‐ By M A


Maybe listing the 15 worst reality shows ever made is sort of stating the obvious. Even the ones that have been on for years (Toddlers & Tiaras, we’re looking at you) are so bad and so ridiculous that we should really be ashamed that we plop ourselves down to watch them. But we do, because in their complete awfulness, hilarity ensues. But which reality shows put more of an emphasis on awful than hilarity? Check out this list.

    i don’t understand how the women on the bridalplasty show still got married to those men. on the wedding day the woman wouldn’t even be the same woman that he fell in love with so what’s the point? i wouldn’t be surprised if they got divorced before the wedding. that is the saddest show EVER! i saw an episode of it when i was at a friend’s house and i was in shock.

    These shows should have just been called: Doing something strange for some change Pt.1, Pt.2, and so on.

    I don’t even remember that murder mystery show, or married by America, but yeah everything else in this list was a mess. You can also throw in I Love New York and her spinoff where she was looking for a job! Reality tv…smh

    Great article. You brought back so many memories. God, I miss the Fox Reality channel so much! Almost every show on that channel could be on this list besides re-runs of American Idol

    Have you seen Diving With the Stars …oops I mean, Stars In Danger? That is ridiculous. I only watched because I have a need to see Antonio Sabato Jr and Terrell Owens in teeny swim trunks.

  • Skating with the stars!!!! omg i KNEW that one was DOA… the premise alone was calls for a snooze fest. Good article MN! PLEASE do a part 2!

    I agree with most of the list but I personally liked Growing up Gotti. I don’t think it’s fair to call someone a dimwit just because they have a very strong accent. A lot of people on the coasts and the south have strong accents but that doesn’t make them dimwits, just means you have to actually listen more closely. Anyway, I agree with the rest of the list. Of the shows I’d heard of they were just pure trash.

    These are some sick people to stoop this low to create this foolishness. Joe Millionaire, the show was a lie. He lied about being a millionalre and sadly these stupid women went on the show just for five minute of fame. Temptation island was sick. The goal of that foolishness is to spitefully break up relationships. It is amazing how low people will get to do anything for five minutes of fame and money.
