Top Ten Reality TV Seasons.

Jarrett Wiesalman wrote an article here in the New York Post on what he thinks is the Top Ten reality TV seasons ever. It is totally US based and he mentions shows like Sorority Life – Season 1 that I have never heard of.

He thinks the best America’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 is the best due the wonderful egomanical Jade. That I would have to agree with.

To Australise the list I would add the following:

Australian Idol Season 5 – This season had Bobby Flynn, Dean Geyer, Lisa Mitchell, Jessica Mauboy and Damien Leith.

Big Brother Season 1 – this first season was the best as an audience we didn’t know what to expect, and the entertainment was the social experiment of a group of people who did not know each other. So no producer interference except for copious amounts of alcohol and who could forget Sara-Marie’s bum dance.

Project Runway Australia Season 1 – This is one series that gives the US version a run for its money. Great judges, great personalities who had talent as well, bring on Season 2.

Farmer Wants a Wife Season 2 – Lots of hook ups, plus a nutter called James.

And last the reality TV show that started it all Sylvania Waters.

Which show’s season’s are your favourites.

Totally agree Raver, though 1st year of Idol was pretty good with Guy and Shannon Noll, though I agree season 5 had the most talent and originality.

1st season of BB was excellent, there was also the Dancing Doona in that series, wasn’t there?

Ah, Sylvania Waters – watched it again recently and it takes reality to another level!

Will I be banned forever for admitting to enjoying season one of The Block? And, ahem, even some of season two of My Restaurant Rules?

Injera where did you get Sylvania Waters from? Was it a download if so can you please email me the link.

I forgot about My Restaurant Rules that was a quality TV show, I am still kicking myself that I never went to any of the venues.

I need to outsource this blog to you as your corporate memory on reality TV is much better then mine.

SW was on ABC2 recently (when I say recently, I think I mean “this year”…) but if I come across any links in my travels I’ll certainly send them on.

Glad I’m not banned!
