2. Flavor Of Love
Like a car accident you can’t help but look at, Flavor Of Love had all the telltale signs of great television: A charming leading man, a mansion, and a girl that pooped on the stairs. Also, if you watch VH1’s Couples Therapy you would know that Flavor Flav was married the entire time he did the show. What a sweet guy!
8. Charm School
Taking the cast-offs from both Flavor Of Love and Rock Of Love, Charm School made what could only be considered a perfect storm of trampiness. The intentions of the show were good — challenge the women to better themselves by learning which fork goes with which course — but in the end, it was all about wig pulling and spitting on one another.
9. Trading Spaces
Trading Spaces was many people’s first foray into the home-makeover genre of reality TV, and although neither team won money, the designers were competing nonetheless. Whether it was Hildi vs. Vern, or Frank vs. Genevieve, there was always the chance that the homeowners would hate the finished design. Like Genevieve’s real grass bedroom wall. That couple was pissed.
10. Kid Nation
Here’s the premise: Take 40 kids to a New Mexico faux-town movie set, and ask them to create a working society. Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. Want to know what happens when kids are left to look out for themselves? That GIF above should answer that question.
14. Celebrity Fit Club
If there’s something Americans love more than seeing the fall of celebrities, it’s seeing them reinvent themselves (i.e. Robert Downey, Jr.). We like it even more when it’s a fat fall, though, and Celebrity Fit Club reminded us all that every celeb is one meatball sub away from irrelevance.
