When you think about the reality TV shows readily available on Netflix, the streaming service's tear-jerking, spectacular Queer Eye reboot probably takes up a lot of space in your imagination. In fact, given the amount of buzz the show and its ridiculously endearing cast gets, you might think it's the only reality show on Netflix. But you'd be gravely mistaken.
Netflix is overflowing with reality TV shows to satisfy all kinds of cravings, from people who have seen the entire back catalog of House Hunters to people who wished their lives were a lot more like Laguna Beach. Lurking behind the algorithm are hours and hours' worth of easy watching. Don't call 'em guilty pleasures, because there's no shame in spending an hour watching strangers socialise or watching people show off their ridiculously fancy homes.
These are the reality TV shows we retreat to when we need a pick-me-up, or a wind-me-down.
