Our reality right now ultimately sucks. I don’t know about you guys, but I would really like a nice dose excitement right about this second. Take me as far away from this house I’ve been stuck in for months and drop me in a middle of an adrenaline-filled competition or a heartwarming journey of self-love in a country other than my own. Gimme more than staring at the chipping white paint of my bedroom ceiling as I contemplate the meaninglessness of my existence.
Before we get carried away, this week I wanted to share with you guys 7 Super Fun Reality TV Shows to Watch in Netflix this Pandemic. I’ve consumed most sitcoms and cartoons in Netflix already so we’re moving on to reality tv shows. I’ve been totally into reality tv lately because even if they do have structured formats, each episode is sure to bring you excitement and this deniable sense of amazement.
Some shows are super high-stakes like competition shows with thousand dollar prizes. Some are even tearjerkers as you see a person’s life change before your eyes while a couple are just well… They’re kind of just plain stupid and fun. All shows are also hyperlinked so you can go ahead and click the titles. Then, you can get right to watching! Let’s get into it shall we?
7 Super Fun Reality TV Shows to Watch in Netflix this Pandemic
What a super fun show to watch with your friends and even family! This show will have you laughing your socks off while some of the world’s admittedly-bad bakers attempt to recreate the most complex baked creations ever. Their output? Well, their creations always turn into quite disasters, appearance and flavor-wise. I’ve seen some hilariously ungodly treats from this show and it’s always exciting to see more chaos unfold! And at the end of the day, someone still has to win!
A baking show where time is key. Skilled bakers compete in pairs for 3 rounds of baking: cupcakes, confections and then cakes. Every episode has a fun theme and it is up to the bakers to interpret their vision. Not only do they have to make sure their baked goods look incredible, but the flavors have to be on point as well. And, they have to do all of this in so little of a time.
I’ve had experience with baking and this show is just a fun to watch because it’s fascinating to hear about the bakers’ creative ideas, watch them work and then, see their vision come to life at the end. Pretty impressive! It’s high-stakes, fast-paced, intense and super rewarding. All bakers who participated in this show are super unique and talented. Sometimes, both final cakes are super amazing that even you’re not sure who’s gonna win!
In the Philippines, we call this game “Langit Lupa”. You’re out if you touch the ground. This show gives you that sense of nostalgia, but also amps up the game with rooms filled with actual raging lava! Every episode shows a different themed room where 3 groups of 3 people try to get from the entrance to the exit of the room. There are several routes to attempt. They can climb, make long jumps, or slide to get one point to the other. The team with the most people across in the least amount of time, wins. Also, they can’t touch the floor because the floor is lava!
I had too much fun watching this show to be honest. It’s always fun to watch someone slip or fall on their face. The show also makes it appear that the contestants actually burn and disappear when they fall into the lava. (Don’t worry, they’re alive. It’s fake lava). What’s more impressive though is when you see a full team get across the obstacles. That’s what you call strategy and team work!
Okay, so this is a really stupid show, but in a not-so-bad way. Explaining the show will be quite ridiculous, but let’s try. Basically, super attractive people who have commitment issues are stuck in paradise together and the only thing they have to do to win the $100,000 grand prize is to not have sex with each other. Face palm, am I right? Any form of sexual activity will cost thousands of dollars to be deducted from their prize money.
I’ll first tell you that yes, these people are gorgeous eye candy. You might like a guy or a girl from the cast or even all of them. It’s fine, completely understandable. But, it’s just so crazy how much money they’ve spent just because they couldn’t get their hands off each other. It was a fun dumb show and I was surprised that there was even a bit of self-love lessons in there. Who could have guessed?
Rupaul’s Drag Race changed my life and introduced me to so many drag queens I now love and admire. All 12 seasons and 2 of the 4 All Stars seasons (where former queens come back to compete) are available in Netflix. And yup, yup, yup, I’ve watched them all!!
Drag queens for me, are one of the most-beautiful creatures in the world. Each week, there are challenges that test the queens’ Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent, a themed runway and finally, a lip-sync for your life where the losing queen goes home. Each season, only one drag queen will be the next drag super star and win $100 000. And, let me tell you all of these queens want it and they’re out for blood.
This show is the biggest stage in the world where you’ll witness big personalities and the most beautiful and jaw-dropping fashion creations ever. Perfection? Yes, I’ve seen it. May the best woman win!
Tiny House!! Interior Design is hard enough on a regular-sized room, but what about in a tiny house? I’ve thrown away my definition of impossible after watching this series because Host, John Weisbarth and tiny expert, Zack Giffin seem to just blow my mind every time. Even if you’re living in a tiny house, you can still live in luxury and have everything you need. You really don’t need all that space and you can still live grand! This show is super satisfying and you’ll kind of want a tiny house of your own after. I’ll probably have a tiny house in the future. Maybe at the backyard of my mansion? Hahaha.
Last but certainly not the least, Queer Eye is I’m sure, close to everyone’s heart. And yes, 5 gay guys can change your whole life for the better. Our kind is kinda of amazing, you know? And you are too!
This is not only a makeover show, but the Fab 5 composed of Antoni Porowski, food and wine expert; Tan France, fashion expert; Karamo Brown, culture expert; Bobby Berk, design expert; and Jonathan Van Ness, grooming expert also help the Heros (nominees) gain more confidence and know that self-care is essential. It’s really heartwarming to see compassion go a long way. When you open yourself up for people to help you and you’re willing to be better, it’s just magical.
That’s it. Yay, we’ve gone through 7 Super Fun Reality TV Shows to Watch in Netflix. I hope you guys enjoyed reading through them with me. Which show do you think you’ll like? Would you like a tiny house of your own or be visited by the Fab 5? If you were in one of those competition shows, how well will you do? I would totally love to be in Rupaul’s Drag Race as my drag persona, Mikayla Boss. Won’t she just slay her way to the crown?
These reality shows are just about the only “reality” I can deal with right now. Oh, how I wish that the pandemic will end already. Don’t you?
