We don’t have a rose, but we do have the worst reality TV competitions ever made.If reality shows are your thing, that’s cool! They’re often fun, easy and delightfully cheesy. But sometimes, a reality TV producer’s reach exceeds their grasp. Sometimes the desire for views and controversy triumphs over a basic sense of human decency. Sometimes the jilted lovers, lying millionaires, and faded stars align, bringing you the worst reality TV competitions ever made. They’ll leave you gagging, alright, but not in the fun RuPaul way. More like the “I’m actually physically gagging because this is disgusting” way. Take a look at the following competitions, but make sure you have some The Great British Bake Off chasers.
Mad Mad House
Mad Mad House features people who live “alternate lifestyles”. These folks, one of whom is a self-proclaimed vampire, challenges contestants to perform tasks in their lifestyle. Are we laughing at the vampire or with him? It’s almost progressive in the way it purports to put power in the hands of the alternative people. However, it widely misses the mark in its broad strokes and factual inaccuracies.
