Scandal is off. Real Housewives of Atlanta is about to conclude. Walking Dead is dunzo until fall. And I did I mention that I don’t feel like paying for premium cable?
What is a girl to watch?
While I love some serious drama and some hilarious comedies, every now and then I like silly reality TV, cool docu-series and shows that give me a look into people, places and things near and far, and honestly, a little harmless ratchetry from people of all shades and backgrounds. These reality shows aren’t going to be up for any awards anytime soon, and I’m sure you’ve passed them on your way to the channel or show you really desire, but hey, now that you have some free space in your TV time, I would say that these programs are worth checking out at least once.
Note: A majority of these shows are currently airing new seasons. For those that aren’t, you can easily find past episodes either on Netflix or online.
Naked And Afraid
This show just started last year, but it’s already gaining something of a following. Why wouldn’t it? There’s just something very interesting about watching a naive man and woman get dumped in the middle of Bolivia, Tanzania, Costa Rica and more for 21 days to find food and basically survive while naked (ashy) and afraid. So far, I’ve seen someone get bitten by a snake, a tick on someone’s eyeball, maggots in another guy’s butt wound and watched a woman end up with a deadly Dengue fever and have to relearn some of her motor skills. Did I mention NO money is won for all this suffering?
