You'd think that people would know better than to do blackface on national TV (or anywhere else, really), but you would sadly be wrong.
Emily (The Challenge)
Her partner (and ex-boyfriend from Real World: DC) Ty started hooking up with Paula, which is awkward for sure, but she seemed okay with it. That is, until Camila got the bright idea that she and Emily should impersonate them. So Camila decided to be Paula and Emily covered her face in chocolate syrup as her Ty costume, and proceeded to go downstairs to make a spectacle of herself. And then had no idea why Ty was upset, or what blackface even is, and blamed the weird, small cult-like community she grew up in for her ignorance. As if that's an excuse for racism. Plus, making fun of your own teammate's sex life in general is a dick move.
Marlo (Real Housewives of Atlanta)
She was barely part of the episode, but her brief stint talking down to the housekeeper makes her worthy of inclusion on this list. She addressed the white girl as "Blue Eyes" (NeNe did this, too) and made her pack her clothes, organized by pretentious designer label -- an entire bag for individually wrapped Louboutins. Must be nice to make people working at a safari in Africa deal with an insanely large amount of ridiculously overpriced shoes and sunglasses for you.
Sarah (Top Chef)
She told Emeril to eff off when she didn't win and conveniently forgot about it? And then got mad at the producers of Top Chef for bringing that up on the finale? When that's arguably the most interesting thing that happened all season? Please. Still, we'd kill for a selective memory like that.
Did the casting people find Colton on the set of The Help? He said he's totally friends with African-Americans -- well, the one that is paid to work for him at the very least. He staged a somewhat impressive takeover of his tribe (thanks to his immunity idol), in which he convinced everyone to give up their hard won tribal immunity (a Survivor first) and vote out Bill. Why Bill? What did he do that was so terrible that this couldn't possibly wait until the next time the men were sent to tribal council? Oh, Colton just didn't like him because he was a minority and because he thinks that being a stand-up comedian isn't a real job. Sure, the spin was that Bill wasn't trustworthy, but it was mostly because Colton didn't like him. Did we mention that Colton also called little person Leif an Oompa Loompa?
Courtney (The Bachelor)
We're running out of chances to put her on our list, which makes us sad, especially since she's so terrible. Now she'd like us to believe that she's a changed person. We don't believe her, and her big dopey crocodile tears at the reunion did nothing to change that fact. She insisted she would've behaved differently if given another chance... but mostly because the press has torn her apart. We look forward to seeing her be horrendous on a forthcoming season of Bachelor Pad.
Winner: We'd like to call it tie between Colton and Emily since they were both so reprehensible, but we'll go with Colton by an Oompa Loompa.
