Best TV of the '00s: Trashy Reality

The season five cast of The Surreal LifeMore of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about the cheesiest in reality from the decade. And there was a lot of cheesy going around.

The turn of the millennium was the point when television networks were watching the rise of Survivor, The Amazing Race, and American Idol and thought, "I can do that!" What they didn't realize was that to maintain a high quality level, they still needed a big budget.

Instead of monetary prizes, networks turned to things like love, the experience, and the belief of fifteen minutes of fame to entice people to participate. Slowly with the help of networks like Fox, E!, and VH1, reality shows got more classless and turned trashy. Like a car accident, viewers can't stop watching. The decade has provided a countless number of trashy reality shows and here is TV Squad's favorites of the decade.

Make that another of the original 'Girls Next Door' who doesn't watch the new 'Girls Next Door.'

"I don't watch it," Bridget Marquardt told Inside TV at Thursday's Nu Pop Movement launch party in Beverly Hills, hosted by Jermaine Dupri, adding that she has no interest in 'The Girls Next Door,' on E!

"I had trouble watching it even when we were on it," the Playboy model says. "I was just weird about watching myself on TV. Now, I don't want to watch it because I feel like it was our thing. And I don't want to go there."

The Girls Next Door continues without the girls, but they're not gone either

Kendra WilkinsonBridget Marquardt is already traveling the world showing us Bridget's Sexiest Beaches on the Travel Channel. Now it's Kendra Wilkinson's turn. Easily the most annoying of The Girls Next Door, Kendra's new E! show will premiere this fall. Now that all the girls have left the mansion, it's time to see what's next for them. And for Kendra, who was only 18 when the show premiered, it's about time she learned how to be an adult who isn't pampered by the staff at the Playboy Mansion.

And that's just what her show, cleverly called Kendra, will do as she prepares for her wedding next month. My wife is a fanatic for The Girls Next Door, so I've seen more than my fair share of them, and the show is actually much sweeter than you'd expect. One of my questions was what they would do with it now that the girls have left the nest. Apparently, the show will continue and presumably feature Hef's new girlfriends, the twins (not those twins, though I'm sure they're featured as well; they really are twins!).

Will The Girls Next Door end with a wedding?

girls next doorI've been watching The Girls Next Door for a while and it presents such a quandary for me. I feel like I'm betraying the feminist movement every time I tune in. If I knew an old man who had relationships with multiple young girls and made them "kept women," I would think he's a sleaze ball and wouldn't want to have anything to do with him. However, I fully admit that I find The Girls Next Door fascinating.

It's probably because the life that's portrayed is so far beyond my frame of reference that I can hardly believe that it's real. In any case, I've been a semi-regular viewer and I've found myself even rooting for the girls. I want Bridget to finish school, and yes, I've even been rooting for Holly to get Hef to marry her. Well, I believe Bridget has gotten her Master's degree, and it seems like Holly may even get her wish too. Bridget was recently overheard dishing about a "huge wedding" coming up on the show.
