I love reality competition TV shows. Think Top Chef, Survivor, American Ninja Warrior, and Big Brother.
They have the appeal of a reality show, while not always being sooo dramatic (except The Challenge). Plus, there’s usually a new cast every season so you get to know new characters.
When I want something to watch and don’t want to think too much, reality TV is my go. And Amazing Race, Top Chef, and MTV’s The Challenge are my 3 favorite shows to binge and watch on repeat.
- Amazing Race - If I could go on any reality show, this would be it. Travel around the world and compete in unique tasks/challenges - sign me up! You can't go wrong watching any season, but it's worth watching Season 1 first so you can appreciate how the show has evolved. Watch on CBS, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
- Top Chef - I love the recipe inspiration I get from watching these amazing chefs. My favorite season is #7. Watch on Hulu and Bravo.
- MTV's The Challenge - My love for reality competition started with MTV's The Challenge. The show has over 30 seasons and continues to surprise with its twists and turns. My fave seasons is Battle of the Exes 2. While you don't have to watch them in order, you should if you want to understand some of the drama. Watch on MTV and MTV.com
