Things we didn't need to hear this week: Gia and Joe Giudice on Real Housewives of New Jersey) chatting about how she has a hairy grill and the birds and the bees; Susan on Hell's Kitchen discussing her pubic grooming habits; and Cathy from Dance Moms talking trash about Abby Lee Miller. The Candy Apples-focused Dance Moms nearly killed us, but these other people still managed to be even worse examples of humankind:
Somehow we're two weeks in to Real Housewives of New Jersey and none of those women have found their way on to our list. That's either a marked improvement on their part or the rest of reality TV civilization has stooped even lower.
Brian from American Baking Competition and Krissi from Masterchef were too cocky and uppity when they got criticized, which is one of our pet peeves, but they both still survived elimination and managed to escape making our list.
In the biggest reality surprise of the week, Brian (from The American Baking Competition) did a complete 180. The guy who had been cocky, off-putting and pretty rude the entire time decided to be a human being and actually help the adorable James with a challenge. It didn't save poor James, but it did dramatically change our opinion of Brian.
Hashtag Kasey was spared from the list this week because of more disgusting Bachelorette behavior, but he's on notice.
Something positive came from this week, in that we think we've found a new best friend for moronic Ryan Lochte. That man is Eddie. He's dummy from Survivor who quit about two minutes into a challenge for free food, when he was well aware that he needed immunity. He also has about zero capabilities for strategy, but he looks cute in swim trunks.
Randy laughing at Charlie while the emotionally unstable kid was on the verge of tears might have just been one of his nervous ticks, but it still wasn't cool. Still, the Idol judge wasn't as terrible as the other losers on our list this week.
While he didn't make the final list, we'd like to give a special shout-out to good old Rudy from Survivor who went out of his way to use the word "queer" on national television. Being old doesn't excuse all bad behavior.
First off, we'd like to hand out some kudos to some special reality stars this week. From the receptionist on Urban Tarzan who is the least believable "actress" we've ever seen to Terry on Real Housewives of Orange County who didn't know when to let the onion rings go (just give up trying to have any shred of control in that marriage, dude) to Corinne from Survivor who continued to talk about collecting "gays" like they were toys from a machine instead of actual people. You are all stellar in your own way, if not quite heinous enough to make our list -- this time.
