    I don’t really watch many reality shows but my favorite for a long time was Survivor, especially the first few seasons.

    My favorite reality show, of course, is American Idol. I love Idol because it gives regular people the chance to share their gift and a chance to change their lives forever. 🙂

    My fave reality show is … Big Brother I love how everyone has to live together and all their personalities have to come together and get along then try to best each other.

    My favorite reality show was called Love In The Wild. This show was only on for one season, but I was obsesssed with it. It was one of those couple shows, but it was my favorite, because for once the best couple won at the end! I hope they bring it back for another season.

    My favorite would have to be Xfactor. Love the judges and their sense of humor.

    OH. MY. GOSH. My favorite is So You Think You Can Dance!! It is the best thing to watch different types of amazing dancers (contemporary, ballet, breakers or b-boys/girls, Latin ballroom, tap dancers, etc.) learn new styles and perform them (kinda like Dancing With the Stars except all of the contestants already know how to dance). I wait ALL year for that show to come on and I’ll even re-watch some of the performances on YouTube. It is pretty incredible. 🙂

    My favorite show would be either Dancing With the Stars or Project Runway!!! LOVE THEM. I love watching the designers be so creative in such a short time frame and on DWTS who doesn’t like dancing??? 🙂

    Does House Hunters International count? Frankly I’m sometime amazed at what people are willing to pay for a place I would run shrieking from…lol…p.s. wanted to play but own the ebook copy… really enjoyed the story…

    I am a big reality TV watcher… but just like Karen asked, does House Hunters International count? I literally come home every night and turn it on to watch. Just a couple of weeks ago, I watched an episode where it actually rained inside a house that was over $1 million! And yes, it was supposed to happen because of the open ceilings. And they BOUGHT it! Crazy! It just amazes me what people will buy in other countries. Guess their craziness is what has me hooked! 🙂

    My favorite is Pawn Stars. I love all the mini-history lessons and I also love all the guys on the show and how they interact.

  • Comment by Celeste Holloway — January 12, 2012 @ 8:26 am

    I love American Idol! The excitement of voting for your favorite singer is a rush! I love the great talent, but I also love watching the crazies come out who make you want to cover your ears and run from the room, lol! Now, someone just needs to bring a reality show for aspiring authors! That would be awesome!!!! 🙂

    I like watching Fear Factor!

    The Sing-Off! Love it because I never cease to be amazed by what the groups can do with just their beautiful voices!

  • Comment by Dana — January 13, 2012 @ 1:43 pm

    My current fave is Pawn Stars. I love the guys, their interactions, and learning about the items their customers bring in….

    In the past I enjoyed Frontier House and Colonial House on PBS…. would love to a similar series emerge.

    American Idol, it has lasted many seasons and has such talent every time. Love to watch which songs each person performs also 🙂 I liked you and Krista McGee on facebook, your book looks just as great as hers does 🙂 Thanks for this giveaway and best wishes to the other entrants!

    I like the “Amazing Race” because I’m an arm-chair traveler at best. The host is good and it’s interesting to see how the teams interact. Unless they need to eat something really gross, I enjoy watching the show. I also enjoy “Undercover Boss” which comes back on this Sunday night.
    I like Krista McGee on Facebook.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Gotta fo with Dancing with the stars!! I just love all those different celebrities completely outside of their confort zones trying something new and sometimes very foreign to them and the guest performers on the show get better every season. Love it!

  • Comment by Judy Burgi — January 13, 2012 @ 3:28 pm

    My favorite reality show is Under Cover Boss. I love how the CEO’s help people at the end. I can’t watch that show without crying!

    I also like Survivor. I love to see how well people interact with each other. I like watching them compete in games. I don’t like how everyone back stabs each other though. Surely you can play the game without lying to everyone’s faces.

    I liked Krista McGee on Facebook.

    My favorite has to be American Idol–I can’t sing, so I love watching those who can, and often following their inspirational stories. I also watch it so I can participate in the water cooler chatter at work!

  • Comment by Amber — January 16, 2012 @ 9:44 pm

    My favorite reality show is Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cookoff! The series just started, and I’ve quickly become addicted. It’s fun to see these celebs that are amazing chefs. It’s like we’re allowed to peek in on their real lives a little bit. I also love Cupcake Wars because I want to one day have a cupcakery.
