Best TV of the '00s: Trashy Reality

by Michael Pascua, posted Jan 1st 2010 2:02PM
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.

The many faces of Heather
Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, I Love New York (or whatever show Tiffany Pollard is making next), The Surreal Life, and Miss Rap Supreme.

After the jump, check out my tribute to Flavor Flav, my thoughts on Miss Rap Supreme and The Bad Girls Club, and other skankalicious goings on. (By the way, I won't be talking about Heather Chadwell. I just thought you guys deserved a treat.)

Happy Super Skank Wednesday!

vh1 logoBecause they lost their dignity long ago, the most popular "stars" from VH1's The Surreal Life are reuniting for a competition that will determine who is most famous. Hosted by Robin Leach, who also has no self respect, the contestants will compete in weekly single-elimination games that determine their level of fame. Games include "Paparazzi Hide-and-Seek", Scandal Video Film Festival", and "Hotel Room Trash-a-Thon". As is customary for The Surreal Life, all the contestants will live in the same house. Only, their success at the Fame Games will determine whether they live on the A-list side of the house where they eat gourmet meals and are pampered, or on the B-list side with a ping pong table and crackers.

Celebs signed up for The Surreal Life Fame Games are: Brigitte Nielsen, Chyna Doll, Vanilla Ice, Pepa, Emmanuel Lewis, C.C. DeVille, Ron Jeremy, Jordan Knight, Verne Troyer, Andrea Lowell and Tracy Bingham. The new season begins January 7 at 9 pm on VH1.

Reality shows from Mike Tyson and Brigitte Nielsen on the market

Mike TysonI feel icky even reporting on these two reality outings from Mike Tyson and Brigitte Nielsen, but it's my jobs, folks.

After making a cameo appearance on Being Bobby Brown, former heavyweight champ, convicted rapist and infamous ear biter Mike Tyson wants a show of his own. Tyson is shopping around a concept featuring himself, his daughter Mikey and Don King's granddaughter. The show would focus on their family dynamic, but also on Mikey, who is launching a plus-size clothing line. The concept is a bore, but the show is all about the Iron Mike freak factor. It's the kind of celebrity warmed-over reality show that I feel uncomfortable watching, which is why I'm not a network programmer. I'm sure it will sell like gangbusters.
