Reality television is a bit like marmite – you either love it, or hate it. For me, I can’t get enough of it. There’s nothing worse than having no Saturday night TV in between reality series finishing and starting. What am I supposed to watch whilst I munch on my takeaway and gobble some sweeties?! I’ve slipped in and out of pretty much every reality series out there, but there are eight in particular I watch every year without fail…
I do hope that the theme tune to The Apprentice is now running through your head. Because it is mine. Every year Lord Sugar comes up with some pretty excellent tasks for some (apparently) intelligent candidates, and we just get to sit back and watch the drama unfold as they fight for a partnership. And there’s always that one guy that is just a complete dick, and so provides great entertinment when he gets shot down in the boardroom.
Whilst I never got into the British version of The Biggest Loser, I’ve watched every episode of the original American series, and it remains one of my favourite TV shows without a doubt. Watching the contestants go though their journey can get pretty emotional (yes, I cry quite a lot whilst watching it) and is pretty darn motivating. If you’ve never watched them before, get online and find an old season. You’ll soon be hooked!

After throwing a bunch of regular strangers into a house together, Big Brother naturally had to follow this with a celebrity version of the show, and it’s just as outrageous, if not more so! Granted, I don’t recognise half the celebs that go in there, but I love seeing how my opinions change of the ones I do.
The Voice is making a move over to ITV for its next series and I can’t wait to see how it might change. I’m just praying they keep will.i.am. They have to, right? He’s, like, amazing. Please keep him on my TV!The X-Factor
So there you have it. Eight reality TV shows I can’t help but watch every single year. What’s even better is I’ll soon be watching them on my very own TV from my very own sofa in my first house with my boyfriend. We’ve been eyeing up this Panasonic UHD 4K TV and it really is a dream television. Time to start putting pennies in the piggy bank!
