The Dumbest Reality Shows of All Time

Reality shows are stupid. No one's really denying it at this point. Yet they continue to prove massively popular - if arguably not as huge as they once were at the height of the reality craze.Now with the ascension of "Toddlers and Tiaras," "Jersey Shore" and many more, one could argue that the genre has sunk to a new and previously unexplored low point. A valley many would probably have thought didn't even exist in the early aughts, when reality TV's worst crimes seemed to be limited to insulting the audience's intelligence and making Jesse Camp famous.

From "Celebrity Apprentice" to "Hoarders" to that one about how the contestants are totally not here to make friends, this is a rundown of the stupidest, most banal, most shrill, just dumbest reality shows ever made. If you've ever wondered "Could any show be more repetitive and pointless than 'America's Next Top Model'?," this is the list for you. 

These are the dumbest reality shows ever. Seriously, can you think of worse reality shows? If you can, bless your heart and add them!
