Hmmmm… starting this new blog on a whim. My name is Liz and I’m a 22 year old senior in college. I’m currently stuck at an internship doing things that I don’t like doing, researching a topic that I thought was perfect for me and dreading every single day. With graduation looming over me like a level 5 tropical storm, I decided to forgo any “real” studying and hard work and concentrate on what makes me happy—TV.
I could rattle on and on the countless Reality shows that I’ve subjected my poor little retinas into watching, but that would just be ludicrous. But, since you asked so nicely, here’s a short list of shows that I just can’t stop watching:
- The Real World: 25 seasons. I’m 22 years old. I’ve seen every episode. It’s sad isn’t it.
- Road Rules: 14 seasons. Let’s keep it in the BMP (Bunim Murray Productions, for all you newbies out ther) family. They’ve also made me a prisoner to my remote with the always entertaining spin-off of The Real World & Road Rules, The Challenge.
- Survivor: 22 seasons. I watched a few when I was younger, but I failed to appreciate the sheer brilliance of what some like to call ‘the granddaddy of all reality shows’. After taking a break, I caught up with the first all-star season and the rest as they say is pure history.
- Real Housewives of… the world?: Unfortunately that damn Bravo Network just keeps tempting me! First it was Orange County & NYC, but they just couldn’t stop there. Oh no! Atlanta (my personal fave!), New Jersey, Washington D.C., Beverly Hills and Miami! Andy Cohen, you’re an evil, evil man!
- Top Chef: 8 seasons deep in chorizo. Sadly I’ve only seen from season 3 on. But, nonetheless I like to think that I’ve done a good job watching every single episode since then!
Honestly, the list is endless and quite embarrassing. Any real reality TV connoisseur has also dutifully kept Jersey Shore, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Teen Mom 1 & 2, 16 & Pregnant and Basketball Wives on their current rotation. Let’s face it, we all love a little bad TV. Well, in my case, a little is an understatement.
