Until someone decides to make a reality show about a certain blogger, these are some of the more interesting reality shows out there.
Vanilla Ice Goes Amish: Two of my favorite things, Vanilla Ice and the Amish! This show has ‘ten year run’ written all over it.
My Strange Addiction: Because it shows people addicted to all manner of weird behavior it may seem like taking advantage of the mentally ill, but a lot of it is professionals trying to help these people. I once saw an episode where a woman was addicted to eating cement.
Sunset Daze: It’s a geriatric Jersey Shore. I want to retire to this community!
Mr. Personality: This is no longer on the air. It was hosted by Monica Lewinsky (I love anything with kitschy b-list celebs) and it was the typical dating/choose the love of your life type show except for one difference; then men all wore really goofy masks so the woman really had to choose based on personality.
Heroes of Cosplay: A show about the people that spend way too much time creating elaborate costumes to wear to comic book conventions. FYI, “cosplay” is short for costume play.
My Big Fat Revenge: I’ve never seen it, but this one sounds really awesome. They take someone who is overweight and was picked on or bullied by someone in their life. Then they get them in shape and give them a chance to kick the bullies ass. How great is that?
Naked and Afraid: Pretty much a description of my sex life. I love this show even though, oddly, I’ve only seen it with the sound off. I watch it when I’m on a machine at the gym. Two strangers are dropped in a jungle naked with only a few items in a bag and they have to survive for three weeks. Trust me, they may be naked, but after a couple days in the jungle it’s not a sexy kind of naked.
Sperm Race: In 2005, German TV ran a show where men “donated” sperm, and then watched as their little swimmers raced each other to an egg. Doctors on hand confirmed the winner, and that guy, the guy with the fastest sperm, won a car. If this was on in the U.S. guys would be lining up around the block to get on the show.
H8R: People were interviewed as to why why they hate particular C-list celebrities and then were confronted by said celebrity. The rest of the episode shows the person spending time with the celebrity to try to change their minds. I think the show has already been cancelled. It’s too bad because I’m sure some of my rants here would qualify me for a date with Justin Bieber.
Wrestling with Death: A family that runs a funeral home also does semi-professional wrestling in their spare time. I wonder if they practice their sleeper hold on the cadavers?
I was going to put in a fake one and see if anyone could guess which was the fake show, but I couldn’t think of anything as ridiculous as any of the real ones. Trust me, be thankful I didn’t include some of the shows from the non-English speaking countries. They get seriously weird. Have a great Tuesday! ~Phil
