FAQ: About reality TV shows
What is the most popular reality show in the world?
Some of the biggest reality shows and franchises of all time include Bling Empire, Big Brother, Survivor, The Bachelor, Love Island, 90-Day Fiancé, America’s Got Talent, Britain’s Got Talent, The Voice, Below Deck, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, RuPaul's Drag Race, Lizzo's Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, MasterChef, The Great British Bake Off, Hell’s Kitchen, House Hunters, Queer Eye, and The Real World—perhaps the first reality TV series with roots in the early 90s. There are, of course, far more options out there!
What reality show should I watch?
It depends on what you’re interested in! Love "romance"? Try The Bachelor. Want to laugh at drunk people with catchphrases? Maybe Love Island or Jersey Shore (or its British cousin, Geordie Shore). Drunk people who are also rich? Try The Real Housewives franchise (up to 14 versions, and counting)...
The good news is that there is absolutely no shortage of sub-genres of reality TV that exist. From fashion, to food, to fighting, you’re bound to find something that fits your tastes.
Why are reality shows popular?
Reality shows are popular because they allow for a peek into other people’s cultures, subcultures, and lives—whether due to escapism, or because we want to feel better about our own life choices.
What does a “reality TV show” mean?
“Reality” (heaviest of air quotes there) television is a genre that captures supposedly unscripted real-life experiences. Reality show formats can include competitions, dating and docusoaps, travelogs, appraisals, real estate hunts and renovations, and survival.
Is reality TV actually real?
While reality TV shows in general are supposedly unscripted, the degree of realism would depend on the type of show you’re watching. For example, there would be a stark contrast in authenticity between what you see on The Kardashians and The Great British Bake Off.
