I'm kinda over reality (never really was that into it to begin with) BUT
My favorite reality show is The Bad Girls Club. This show is ratchet, horrible, and pretty much the same plot (even though each season there are a new set of girls). I like it 1. because its entertaining, 2. because in my mind its like I am living through them without embarrassing myself on a very public forum (aka tv). I often picture myself in their situation and wonder how I would react. It makes me embrace my inner bitch too!
3. most importantly because I get to silently analyse the psychological impulses and motivations for each of the cast members. Even though its scripted and fake their is a reality of it. Like why they do what they do? Why do others get stressed and mad some get violent, others plot revenge, while others have sex with other cast-mates or other people, etc? Why do some girls follow and other girls want to control things. I often end up confused by their actions and reactions and I don't really get a clear answer but it still watch and continue to watch. In a weird way it makes me understand human nature more.
Other past favorite shows Jersey Shore, Mob Wives, Masterchef, Hell's Kitchen, ABC's What would you do?........
