What's your favorite bad reality TV show?

Asked by TitsMcGhee (8212 points ) January 12th, 2009

I’m about to watch Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels… Just wondering if other flutherites out there watch this kind of bad reality TV that is really oh so good.

I haven’t gotten into the Rock of Love Bus, but I was obsessed with the 1st ROL season. My boyfriend and I even dressed as Bret and Heather for Halloween two years ago. My “bad” shows these days are mostly on TLC and Bravo, so I like to tell myself they’re more high-brow. :)

Some of that reality crap really is great… in moderation. :)

I must admit i was right into the first season of rock of love, it was just so pathetic. my room mates also indulged in a shot at love with tila tequila, but i couldnt get into at all.

@Likeradar: I adored Jes from the first season of Rock of Love and I don’t think there has been anyone as awsome…. It doesn’t hurt that’s she’s absolutely gorgeous too :D

I always liked a shot at love, the one with tila tequila. How can you not like the gender bending sexual orientation blending drama that is this show.

I am almost too embarrassed to admit this, but what the heck we’re among friends: I watched the first season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. There, I said it. Talk about a train wreck!

I watch “Real Housewives” (both of Orange County and Atlanta). Such trash!

I also watch Bad Girls Club on Oxygen.

Both are guilty pleasures!

First of all, I don’t think there is such thing as a good reality show.

But I love watching and laughing at those rediculously bad reality shows, like that Paris HIlton one where she tries to find a best friend, or that Tila Tequila one even though it’s done now. I just find them hilarious, even when they’re not supposed to be/

Likeradar's avatar

@Supermouse… I did too, but then again I would watch Dr. Drew do anything.

Anyone watch Millionaire Matchmaker or Work Out?

MrMontpetit's avatar

Oh, I so watch the one about Corey Haim and Corey Feldman, and now that I think about it, the one reality show that I actually LIKE is Gene Simmon’s Family Jewels. Even my mom likes that one.

SuperMouse's avatar

@MrMontpetit, The Two Corey’s is another huge train wreck. That one Corey looks like he was ridden hard and put away wet!

@Likeradar, I was a big fan of Dr. Drew too, but honestly he has fallen a couple of notches in my book with that show. Although I did like that rehab counselor with the huge glasses.

oh man, i watch bridezillas on occasion, but i don’t really like it anymore.
i watch next rarely, but it always makes me laugh. it’s so ridiculous.
but the only reality show i SERIOUSLY watch is project runway, and i don’t consider it a bad reality show (;

The Bachelor is on.

oh my gosh, the Girl Next Door (does that count as a reality show?) is so unbelievable my eyes get kinda stuck on the screen

Paris Hilton’s best friend show is right up there with it

also, the person who dresses celebrities for award shoes… The Rachel Zoe Project
actually, that one just makes me sick and hate the world. she’s just AWFUL!

these shows are just crazy bad but i find them fascinating. though it’s not a reality show, i’d say Private Practice goes in the same category for me – cheesy show, guilty lazy pleasure

jonsblond's avatar

@zina- The Girls Next Door? My husband loves it when I watch that show!

I watched Ture Beauty last week. I like their idea of tricking people to see if they have ‘inner beauty.’ to me, that is where real beauty is. I think I will keep watching to see what happens. I loved watching “Miss Perfect” get the boot! she was so full of herself. In her interview, she acted like she had it all sewn up. She said, “I am perfect in every way.” Guess not, because she didn’t even last beyond the first episode!!

Survivor, Top Chef, and Project Runway.

I have to say I enjoyed the episode of The Pickup Artist 2 that I saw.

jonsblond's avatar

@andrew- If Top Chef is considered bad, then I would have to add Hell’s Kitchen.

Blondesjon's avatar

@andrewThe Pickup Artist? Really?

do you watch The Soup?

jsc3791's avatar

@Likeradar : I am also a fan of Workout

= )

TitsMcGhee's avatar

TOP CHEF IS AMAZING :)

and I think I’m required to like Project Runway because I go to school at Parsons… but I like it anyway, of course!

andrew's avatar

@Blondesjon What don’t I watch… The Soup, Forensic Files, Murder She Wrote leading into Walker, Texas Ranger, Shamwow! informercials, and basically anything else that’s on after one AM.

cak's avatar

@andrew…..UGH! Not the Shamwow! Infomercials! I’d rather have a migraine than watch one of those….I’d almost rather chemo!

MrMontpetit's avatar

@andrew and @cak what about the Slapchop! You can slap your worries away! Sick of having boring tuna, a boring life? You can use the slapchop to make your tuna exciting! Oh, and you’re going to love his nuts. Quit having a boring life, and order the slap chop in the next 20 minutes, and get another one, free! Remember to call in the next 20 minutes, because we can’t do this all day. Here’s how to order.

cak's avatar

@MrMontpetit – I just did see that one for the first time, last night. It’s hysterical, but the guy is still majorly annoying. I can’t figure out who is worse, Billy Mayes or the wow guy.

TitsMcGhee's avatar

Hey hey – I LOVE SHAMWOW

TitsMcGhee's avatar

And I have a confession for all of you…

I’m watching Maury as I type this.

I’m so ashamed…

cak's avatar

@TitsMcGhee….that was the best spoof!

TitsMcGhee's avatar

@cak: See that? That’s your mildew. That’s gonna fuckin’ reek.

MrMontpetit's avatar

@cak I still can’t see how he connects “exciting tuna” with an exciting life. My life is exciting anough with my boring tuna, thank you very much.

cak's avatar

@TitsMcGhee – the neat freak that I am, truly appreciated that part! :)

@MrMontpetit – I’m sorry – we will never have an exciting life, not like his life – I’m not sure I want the life he’s describing!
