Reality TV Worth Watching

Tuesday, July 21, 2020

Reality TV (or what pases for reality TV) is a guilty pleasure for many of us. While I have never seen an episode of Jersey Shore or KUWTK or any of the housewives I watch other trash TV and love it. I rounded up few of my favourites - don't judge me - there are in no particular order:

Love Island UK.
I haven't seen the US version but the UK version is a hot mess, and I couldn't stop watching. Thanks to prime I went back and watch all available season on there.  The show is pretty much what you think, a dating show with a prize at the end, lots of drama, tears, sex and hella hot people. "A group of men and women participate in a series of tasks with a partner that they keep swapping until they meet the love of their life."

The Bachelor/The Bachelorette.  Okey ALL OF THE Franchise .
While I couldn't be bothered to watch MANY seasons of the bachelor franchise - the seasons I did watch, along with all BIP are stupid addictive. The last season with-what-his-face was MEGA bad but anything with Hannah B, Tayler or Ben was def worth a watch. I think new season might hold some promise as well "To find his/her true love and life partner, a bachelor/bachelorette dates a group of women/men, over several weeks, who compete in a series of challenges that are meant to prove their compatibility with him/her."

Queer Eye.
I laughed, I cried, I was amazed, I cried some more. The fab five are AMAZING. I have only seen this version with this fab five and I love them. They all seem so genuine, wonderful and warm people. I kinda love them "reboots the "Queer Eye" franchise with a new Fab Five and a new setting, trading in the concrete jungle of New York City for communities in and around Atlanta. The style experts forge relationships with men and women who often have different beliefs from them, leading to moments of social commentary interspersed with style advice. Advising people in need of lifestyle makeovers are food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France and culture expert Karamo Brown, who reality TV fans may recognize as one of the housemates on "The Real World: Philadelphia." David Collins, who created the original show, is on board as an executive producer."

Project Runway.
I loved Project Runway from day one, with Heidi and Tim and still love it with Karlie and Christian. The talent never fails to amaze, the challenge are great and Nina is getting more fiery every season which I love. "Talented fashion designers showcase their skills as they compete in a series of challenges to win the coveted title and an opportunity to create a collection for the New York Fashion Week."

The Circle.
First: How do I get on here? Second: What a great experiment. My hope is that there is more season to come, but the Brazil version is cool too. " "Big Brother" meets "Catfish" on this reality series on which not everything is as it seems. Comic Michelle Buteau hosts the show that features its contestants moving into the same apartment building. The twist is that the players never meet face-to-face during the competition, as each one lives in his or her own apartment. The contestants communicate exclusively through profiles created on a specially designed social media app. This anonymity allows them to hide their true identities and portray themselves however they choose. Throughout the competition, the players rate one another, with the lowest-rated players put at risk of being eliminated, or blocked, from the game. The contestant who survives the contest and emerges the winner takes home the $100,000 grand prize."
