…Or has Hollywood scraped the very bottom of the barrel for what passes as television entertainment these days?
I am not a fan of reality TV. In fact, other than Duck Dynasty, I do not watch reality TV. But I have two friends who can’t get enough of it. They often share their new finds with me. Most of the time, my jaw drops open and I am either grossed out or completely astonished that these shows are not only on TV, but that people watch them. Allow me to share:
Extreme Cheapskates–Now here’s a show that left me feeling ill. As I understand it, this show was about a woman who was so utterly cheap that she went dumpster diving for food that she actually served guests at a dinner party she was hosting!! Several of her guests ended up in the emergency room afterward.
Amish Mafia–The title by itself caused me to scratch my head. The Amish have a mafia? Really? Apparently. In one episode, a man went to the don and complained that a non-Amish man was pretending to be Amish and was selling pies alongside the road. Two henchmen were dispensed to the site where the camera was actually turned off and a black screen came up with a message reading something akin to: What happened next was not suitable for viewing audiences. This man will not be selling pies ever again.
Tattoo Nightmares–This is a show in which people who have hideous tattoos go to the very best tattoo artists in hopes they can turn their hideous ink into a work of art.
My Strange Addiction–a show about people who have really, really, really weird addictions. In one episode there was a woman who owned several cats and she literally cleaned each one of them with her own tongue.
I just scratch my head and wonder why these people would want a camera to follow them around. Honestly, if you licked cats or served your friends dumpster food, would you want the world to know??
What about you? Are you a reality TV junky? Tell me what you watch.
Until next time, be well and happy! 😛 😛
