The Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week

Thanks to the Independence Day holiday, we were free from The Bachelorette idiots and the Real Housewives of New Jersey this week, but there were still plenty of horrible people gracing our televisions. That said, for a change we're going to give a little shout-out to Lindsey on Expedition Impossible, who is probably the least heinous person ever to be on reality television. She got trampled by a camel, didn't whine, got up and then basically dragged her blistered sister up a mountain and through a river. Good going, Linds.

Who Was the Most Heinous Person on Reality TV This Week?

Well, Ramona and Sonja continued to be abhorrent people in Morocco, but since they earned a nod last week, we figured we'd diversify just a little bit and pick on the people that actually deserve it.

TWoP 10: Worst Ways to Get on Reality TV

We can understand what a thrill it must be to be chosen for a show like Top Chef or Project Runway or even American Idol (well, unless you are one of the terrible auditioners, in which case you'll be mocked by everyone) because it's an acknowledgement of some sort of burgeoning talent. But if a production crew is at your house filming your wedding preparations because you're such a maniacal shrew, you might want to reevaluate your life. Here are the top ten terrible ways to wind up as the focus of a reality TV series:

TWoP 10: Biggest Reality TV Famewhores

Recently, Daniel Franco, who already had two chances at Project Runway (two too many, if you ask us) got another shot at reality TV by appearing as the self-described lovechild of Susan Boyle and Adam Lambert on American Idol. Really, some people just don't know when to quit. However, he did inspire us to look back at the desperate, pathetic famewhores who make his two brief runs at reality TV look practically lazy by comparison.

TWoP 10: Reality TV Pet Peeves

We realize we watch more reality television than the average person, but we just can't help ourselves. However, there are quite a few irksome things that recur on so very many of them, that we've just had it. Since reality TV didn't die off like the fad it was predicted to be eight years ago, we're hopeful that producers, networks and aspiring contestants or actors will take heed to avoid these common problems in the future.

TWoP 10: Slimiest Guys on Reality TV Reality TV is hardly ever a true reflection of normal people's every day lives. Nor is it, let's be honest, a true reflection of abnormal people's lives. But taking into account that the world is overflowing with creepy, skeevy, douchey dudes, we take some measure of comfort in the authenticity of the reality TV representations of this beloved demographic. So we've put the spotlight on the TWoP Ten Creepiest Guys on Reality TV.

Which Shows Should Go Host-Less Like MTV's Video Music Awards?

Our prayers have been answered. After Chelsea Handler proved to be absolutely terrible at last year's Video Music Awards, MTV has decided to ditch tradition and have no host at Sunday night's award ceremony. There are plenty of other shows that we wish would follow this example, as well as a few we hope never try to be as ahem edgy as MTV.

Wahlburgers: Say Hi to Your Mutha For Me

<i>Wahlburgers</i>: Say Hi to Your Mutha For Me

The new A&E show Wahlburgers brands itself as a "real life reality series," but it's really just one long commercial and/or recruitment video for the restaurant that bears the same name. It's not a terrible show per se, and the Wahlberg family matriarch Alma with her thick Boston accent ("I BEG YA PAH-DON, " "That's MAHK when he was doin' The Perfect Staaaahm) and lovingly no-nonsense demeanor is certainly a delight to watch, but this is as glossy (quite literally, as the camera looks like it was doused in Vaseline), low stakes and carefully produced and edited as a reality show can be.
