This week, the absolute worst people on reality television were the ones with the least self-awareness. It's one thing to take your show seriously, but quite another to play the victim when it's obviously just for the cameras. You know the following reality stars are bad when they all beat out Dr. Drew and the ladies of the Teen Mom 2 reunion -- though something tells us that lovely bunch will make this list next week. We also considered including Bethenny Frankel for constantly complaining about how poor she used to be, only to reveal that back in those days, she was renting a $2,600-per-month apartment, but we're still trying to process that one.
Her showdown with Cathy Giove at the latter's party was absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary -- it almost reached Real Housewives of New Jersey-level trashy to start a big fight in the middle of a celebratory shindig, while at the same trying to poach her enemies' potential stylists. Cathy was crazy and everything, too, but in Jersey Alien vs. Jersey Predator the red-headed dinosaur (as Alexa would say) definitely took the heinous cake the moment she stupidly let Olivia try her hand at doing hair.
Ben (The Bachelor)
Idiot Ben had the perfect opportunity to kick off awful Courtney, but instead she's now one of the final three contestants vying for his heart. To make matters worse, he booted sweet and innocent Kacie (see you next summer on The Bachelorette?). Obviously the editing monkeys probably took some liberties with the storytelling, but it definitely looked like Ben dumped Kacie because her mom wanted them to wait to move in together until after they were married.
Phi Phi O'Hara (RuPaul's Drag Race)
We get that not everyone can possibly love Sharon Needles as much as we do, but she was childish and unreasonably rude to our girl when all Sharon was trying to do was act like an adult about calling Phi Phi out for being a lazy team leader in the last competition. Instead of listening to anything Sharon had to say, Phi Phi flipped out and told her to go back to Party City. So rude.
Daphne (The Biggest Loser)
First, we should probably congratulate her on the worst decision-making after winning a temptation challenge in the show's history. We get that she was sad that her brother was kicked off, but even Sami was grossed out watching her down nine plates of peanut butter cups for 1,890 calories. The reason she's on our list, though, is because she foolishly put her worst enemy on her own team out of nerves, and then poorly attempted to lie to everyone about how much she actually ate. She's very lucky she was on Bob's team and that Jillian is long gone.
JWOWW (Jersey Shore)
They sure do use the term "stalker" lightly on this show, don't they? Why is it so weird that a girl is giddy about following around a fame-obsessed celebrity who hangs out in a very public place all the time? We're not exactly #TeamVanessa or anything, but there was no need for JWOWW to confront one of Pauly's fans in front of cameras and a crowd of on-lookers. The girl may have been a little bit of a weirdo, but JWOWW humiliated her all for the sake of a little bit of an ego boost.
