6 reality TV series to make you question humanity
You’ll hate them. Or love them. Or love to hate them.

REALITY TV PRODUCERS in America are looking for the  real life counterparts of the characters from Girls for a new series which will document their lives.

No surprises there, we would never have had The Hills were it not for Laguna Beach, the reality offshoot of The O.C.

Things have come a long way since then though, so we thought it was the perfect time to recap on some of the most ridiculous reality TV series to ever go to air.

Bad Girls Club

Premise:  A group of rebellious women are put in a house together in an experiment intended to moderate their behavior.

Reality:  A group of women with big personalities and anger issues live in a house with loads of booze for a couple of months, fighting ensues.  Lots and lots of fighting.

Mob Wives

Premise: “A docu-soap series that follows the lives of four women at a crossroads, having to pick up the pieces and carry on while their husbands or fathers do time for Mob-related activities.”

Reality:  Carmella Soprano but with less class.

Extreme Couponing

Premise:  Everyday people save hundreds of dollars in trips to the store thanks to discount coupons

Reality:  Exactly what it says, but on a level which you could never imagine.  Strangely hypnotic.

Dance Moms

Premise:  The series follows the Abby Lee Dance Company  following the children’s early careers in dance and their mothers involvement.

Reality:  Insane dance dictator shouts at small children and their mothers.


Premise:  Brides-to-be compete in challenges to earn plastic surgery procedures in a quest to win their ultimate dream wedding.

Reality:  A group of women with deep seeded insecurities compete to win plastic surgery.  Does exactly what it says on the tin.
