The Best Dating Reality Shows

The best dating reality shows offer viewers the unique perspective of watching singles trying to find the perfect mate. Dating shows are nothing new, but they're nearly always entertaining. Some of the most squirm-worthy moments in dating awkwardness are often seen on reality shows. Do the contestants ever find true love? Not usually, but that sure doesn't mean we won't watch them try and try again! Be sure to vote for your favorite dating reality shows and vote down the shows you absolutely can't stand. Also, if you know of a reality dating show that's missing, add it to the list!

One of the earliest dating reality shows was 'The Dating Game,' a show that featured one bachelorette grilling a trio of prospective suitors. What was the catch? The people looking for dates could hear the contestants' answers to their questions, but they couldn't *see* them. Dating reality shows, 2014-style are all about high drama and lots of tears. Oh how reality dating shows have changed.

By far one of the most popular formats for the best dating reality shows is that of ABC's 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette.' On these dating shows, one person meets an interacts with numerous potential mates over a period of several weeks. One by one, the hopeful suitors are eliminated, until only one remains. Typically, the final contestant then gets a proposal. Do these relationships last? Not usually. The most recent 'Bachelorette' hot couple, Emily Maynard and Jeff Holm, just broke off their much-publicized engagement. So much for "true" love...
