Our TV viewing was mainly devoted to all of the scripted premieres this week, but these reality TV folks acted like big enough idiots to draw our attention away from shows that might actually have some real value.
Jionni (Jersey Shore)
Not for being embarrassed by Snooki, because she is embarrassing, but honestly, he should have known what he was getting into. We're with VP on this one. But he really makes the list for wasting a perfectly good trip to Italy by sulking and realizing while he was abroad that his drunken and cuca-baring girlfriend wasn't exactly what he wanted in a wife.
Everyone (Real Housewives of New Jersey)
All of them. Seriously. Lauren talking about her period. Teresa talking about her period. Teresa parading around in one awful bathing suit after another. Caroline wussing out of dealing with the drama. Kathy poking the rabid beast that is Teresa. All the guys pissing on the side of the road. Jacqueline packing clothes for vacation that she never intends to wear (think of the luggage charges!). Joe and Rich talking about getting laid on vacation. We needed a shower.
We were willing to give this Hantz relative a fair shot (despite his moronic tattoos), but he did himself in when he decided to stir up trouble at camp by attempting to oust Mikayla. All because the girl is too tempting to him as a married man. That's his problem, not hers. It's not her fault that she is hot and she doesn't want to cover up in the tropics. He needs to learn to keep it in his pants. Also, telling Coach about his family was just bad strategy.
Geo (The X Factor)
He made a fool of himself on national television, but also horrified us in the process. Not just a no-talent singer (who wrote his own original "music") but also a flasher as well. Paula was nauseated, people had to rush their small children out of the theater as his shiny lamé pants shimmied down and revealed his junk to the entire world. We're grateful that the X logo blocked our vision, but we imagine others who had to witness this live were scarred for life. Also, who let it go on so long? It wasn't even funny. Those X Factor producers may end up on this list if they're not careful.
Butch (Teen Mom)
He got out of jail, begged his teen son to live in his apartment while he served out his parole and then broke all the house rules and got himself arrested again (presumably because of his drug habit). Seeing his toddler son in tears, while Tyler (who had been through this countless times before) sat and comforted him was heartbreaking. But Butch's real crime was being responsible for Catelynn and Tyler having to uninvite their own child from their graduation because they were afraid that Butch would make a scene around the baby they gave up for adoption. We can't imagine the psychological toll to the kids involved here. Uncool.
Mostly because he made our beloved JWOWW suffer as she ran through the streets in stilettos chasing after his dumb ass. Also, because he didn't punch Mike in in the face when Sitch was clearly asking for it.
