What are the best reality shows on right now? Are you a Real Housewives faithful or are you totally into reality shows set in the elements, like a Bear Gryllis situation? Maybe you're strictly a Keeping Up with the Kardashians devotee? Some consider Dancing with the Stars to be one of the best current shows on ABC. No matter what you prefer, there's plenty of current reality television for you to enjoy.
Reality series on now reflect a certain evolution of the genre. Sure, there’s still table flipping, but today’s top reality shows are popular with stars who are much more streetwise than those kooky kids back in the early-‘90s on the first Real World (except for maybe the people on Hoarders). Which current reality show should reign supreme? The Bachelor? Amazing Race? RuPaul's Drag Race? They're all good reality TV shows listed here.
This list of current reality programs also includes reality competition shows, like America's Got Talent and The Voice.
How about the latest ruler of current reality shows? The Great British Bake Off quietly debuted in America and quickly won over viewers, even though the most dramatic thing that’s happened on the series so far is an Irish guy dumping a baked Alaska in the bin? If that isn't for you, maybe fan-favorite cooking reality shows like Top Chef are what will get your upvotes.
