12 Cringeworthy Reality TV Show Fails

Updated April 24, 2019 756.4k views12 items

Ahh, the reality show. What other medium seems to focus on fame mongers and/or washed up celebrities trying to make themselves relevant? TV is full of reality programming these days, and that means more and more reality TV fails for the Internet to enjoy and mock. Reality television is a source of some of the biggest TV fails of all time, and it presents more than its share of the classic TV host nip slip.

Not just Nancy Grace's stint on Dancing with the Stars, this list includes all of the greatest reality TV fails in recent history. From the host of Australia's Next Top Model announcing the wrong winner to Snooki getting a fistful to the face, here are the other greatest and most cringeworthy fails from all across reality television programming. The beauty of reality TV is that it's like watching a slow-motion collision. Come on. We aren't watching Real Housewives for the stories.

So what are the worst reality show fails? What are some of the trashiest television show moments? There are a number. From Verne (Mini Me) Troyer riding a scooter around a house in only his birthday suit and then peeing in a corner, to the worst ideas in invention show history, to the worst face plants in TV dance audition history: enjoy. And if any aliens are watching via radio waves in outer space, please kindly switch over to more educational programming. We promise the human race isn't all Jersey Shore and celebrity competitions.

    'Canadian Idol' Flatulence

    'Canadian Idol' Flatulence
    Video: YouTube

    "I totally just farted," the fail-words of a Canadian Idol (that's right, it exists) contestant, pining for the top spot in Canadian pop culture. This endearing, hilarious video has this girl ripping an almost '90s-style-gag-noise-maker caliber toot that made the judges laugh their butts off. One of the greatest parts was how well mic'ed the gas passing was. It really reverberates in the room (almost better than her voice).

    To top that faux pas off, she was not only proud of her flatulence, but she seemed genuinely happy about it.

    Marie Osmond Faints During Judgment

    Marie Osmond Faints During Judgment
    Video: YouTube

    After performing a samba, a lively Latin dance, Marie Osmond (of The Osmonds fame) fainted on national television, not being able to cope with the strain of the dance she had just performed. The faint happened during the wildfires, and it was reported that Osmond was not faking it but that she had bad allergies because of the smoke in the air.

    Check out the video for arguably the most melodramatic moment ever.

    Reinvention Of The Wheel

    Reinvention Of The Wheel
    Video: YouTube

    Thank goodness George Foreman was in the room, otherwise, something could have seriously gone down in this one. This super-hyped guy from San Francisco goes on American Inventor and tries to pass off his invention as him reinventing the wheel. He is asked if he invented the wheels on the bike he brought in. The answer? No. His actual invention: the spinning hubcaps on the wheels. He thinks this is the most Earth-shattering, game-changing moment in bicycle history since the invention of the bicycle that didn't have one huge wheel in the front. 

    The judges tell him that he's got nothing and ask him for straight answers. He comes back with a spiel about these wheels saving lives, saving kids, and saving the world.

    'Sex' From 'So You Think You Can Dance'

    'Sex' From 'So You Think You Can Dance'
    Video: YouTube

    So a guy calls himself "Sex." He says that hundreds of women find him attractive. This guy is a fail in and of himself. He tried out for So You Think You Can Dance. Every. Single. Season. He always fails miserably because his skills are comparable to any drunk guy who is trying to move to any kind of beat. It is absolutely hilarious to watch.

    Stay tuned for shots of his mom saying how he shouldn't be ridiculed, but revered. Absolutely amazing.
