I plead for RuPaul (rating 8.4) to be put in the top #5 position ✌

Lets see if I can jumble it around a bit. Not promising in the top 5. But I'll move it on up!!! No deluxe apt in the sky though!!!!

I generally do not like reality shows but this list does tend to have the better ones and not too many exploitative ones. I love 'Survivor,' Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations' was very good, and 'Queer Eye' and cooking contests are fun. My vote would go to Survivor.

That's a good choice.

I think that'd be the #1 choice by most folks.

Thanks

I have watched that. Not recently though.

I really like Gordon Ramsey's shows.

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."

Call me Mr Pedantic but......

REALITY SHOW: "A reality show is a type of television program that aims to show how ordinary people behave in everyday life, or in situations, often created by the program makers, which are intended to represent everyday life."

Admittedly, this can be done with celebrities, but when the celebrities are doing what they are being paid to do - present a TV show - this does not qualify as a reality show.

I humbly suggest Top Gear as a case in point. The rest of the shows I'm not familiar with.

That's too bad. There are some really great shows there. If you'll notice none of them are rated poorly by IMDb's users. That's why they are on the list. I have seen about a third of these shows.

Recommendation: If you like Top Gear, American Pickers is a very cool show. These 2 guys run around rural America finding "Pack Rats" The stuff they find is amazing. You ought to give it a try!!!!
