Love it or hate it, reality TV is here to stay; and sadly, over the years, Miami has been one of the genre’s favorite cities. Yeah, sorry about that, America. MTV gave us the greatness that was the Real World Miami in 1996, but it seems that since then anyone filming a reality show has at some point chosen Miami as the setting for one of its seasons. Whether it’s a bunch of cameras following a group of kids while they do GTL or an assortment of wealthy wives complaining about their first world troubles, Miami has become the place to be. to film this thing.
Some have been entertaining and even informative; but most have been bad. Very very bad. Here are the ten worst reality shows ever filmed in Miami. Let’s take a walk in a bad memory.
ten. basketball wives
First of all, some of these “women” weren’t even married to the basketball player they are linked to on this show; that alone makes this show dumb enough to make this list. It’s the kind of show that makes you want to brush your teeth, take a shower, and read a book after watching; just getting rid of it is stupid. Created by Shaquille O’Neal’s wife, Shaunie O’Neal, basketball wives is full of cheating, shady, and stereotypical catfights; so it’s very Miami, in that sense.
9. Make group 4
The fourth season of Diddy’s Make the group focused on the musical acts of Danity Kane, Day 26 and Donnie Klang; riggggghhhht. Even if it is necessary to admit the first slices of Make the group were very addictive in a Honey Boo-Boo kind of path; by the time Bandaged hit the fourth season, it was just god awful. You can basically adapt the entire plot of these MTB shows in a tweet, but somehow the show lasted 12 seasons. MTB4The 38 episodes of were the last stab at the zombies head for this series, so at least something came out of the sequel. Danity Kane about for months and months.

This show was ridiculous, borderline criminal in nature and obviously fake as hell. It all starts with a van that stops in front of the houses of three young men or women. The men inside the van break into the student’s house, abduct her, then park somewhere so they can keep watching a potential mate (or a friend of said mate) search their belongings personal. At the very end, guys or girls can reciprocate, going straight for underwear almost every time…because underwear is never fun when you’re 17, I guess.
Not once did the MTV crew see a teenager smoking weed or masturbating; first hint that this whole ordeal is a made-for-TV cheat.
seven. Kourtney and Khloe take on Miami
More like Kourtney and Khloe do the longest running DASH commercial ever. I don’t have to tell you everything that’s wrong keeping up with the Kardashians and the endless fallout that has since followed; you are probably well aware. Take Miami is like the best TMZ video ever, minus the “dom-dom-dommmmmmm!” Eventually, Kim replaced Kourtney and things got even worse. because Kim Kardashian is the guardian at the gates of hell.
6. Bad Girls Club: Miami
If you have never seen Bad Girls Club: Miami, it is the same as Real world, just with more lip gloss. Girls named “Venus” and “Cat” populate a mansion near Biscayne Bay, and eventually drama ensues; because bad girls, you see. Each girl is given a “house nickname” like “The Sneaky Stripper”, “The Trash Talking Cheerleader”, “The Uber Bitch”, and “The Kung Fu Diva”. So here is.
You haven’t watched this show, but if you did, who hurt you? Are you OK?
5. Hogan knows best
Every episode of this show was exactly the same. They all start with the Hogan and his family sitting around the kitchen talking about something, eventually Hulkster has a business meeting where he reminds everyone that the George Foreman Grill would have been the Hulk Hogan Grill s he hadn’t missed a phone call, and then at one point Brooke has a music thing that forces her to wear clothes the Hulk doesn’t approve of. Hulk Hogan didn’t deserve this no matter what he was paid. A little piece of everyone’s childhood died every week on this show. TEAR
4. South Beach Tow
A TV show based on dramatized reenactments of what happened when people had their cars towed: proof that we’re officially out of TV show ideas. The worst thing about this show is that a vast majority – not the smartest people – think the shenanigans that go on on this show are real, maybe because it’s on TruTV.
Many people called the network on their BS after filming for the show was taped, showing actors patiently waiting for a chaotic tow situation to begin. The network has since admitted that the show was not actually real and added credits to the end of the show that said “the stories that are depicted in this program are re-enactments based on actual events”. Uh.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoCvX76i0TQ3. Real Housewives of Miami
RHOM was the seventh chapter of Housewives’ book, and to no one’s surprise, it was one of the least memorable. RHOM follows the basic script of all Housewives seasons, but this time the women were more MILFY. If you like watching the Housewives series, you probably loved this series, because let’s be honest; you have too much free time and you make bad life choices.
RHOM should have been based on Kaiser University nursing graduates juggling their 9-5 and three kids; that would have been the real deal.
2. Brooke knows best
Real Talk: This show was just the result of a VH1 costume being too scared to say no to Hulk Hogan, because there’s literally no other possible explanation for thinking it was a good idea. BKB was a thirty-minute show that included commercials, and those commercials were by far the best part of each episode. Nowadays you can now find Brooke Hogan, just kidding – nobody knows where you can find Brooke Hogan. Look at the gif above, now imagine that for 23 minutes every week; it’s the show in a nutshell.
1. Jersey Shore 2
As a city we contributed to this thing, for this we will always feel equal parts shame and regret. MTV jerseyshore arrived, all tanned and bleached, and broke all MTV ratings records ever in its first season set in, wait for it, the Jersey Shore. MTV was then faced with the decision of what to do for an encore, and they decided to throw their guido and guidettes into the fire that is the belly of South Beach. The result was exactly what everyone expected – drunk-triple-kiss-fist-pumping-fight-chaos.
Miami actually retaliated, banning Jersey Shore from filming at many clubs and bars, primarily due to the reputation they had gained from the first season.
