    There's soooo many of them... but what do you think is amongst the stranger bits of "reality" TV out there?

    Hm...

    Whisker Wars is just soooo stupid...

    ...as was the short-lived Tyson show... Big Bad Iron Mike... racing pigeons. Whiskey, Tango, and Foxtrot.

    ...and I just saw that there's a show called "Amish Mafia," which makes about as much sense as Gay Jewish Nazis.

    Got any other utterly absurd "reality" shows?

    Gene Simmons' Family Jewels comes to mind. (as much as KISS rocks, too bad I can't stand his show)

    Honey Boo Boo.

    Why, TLC?

    Hey, it's canceled, so that's a plus.

    Remember when you used to watch TLC and actually learn shit? Nowadays you watch TLC and see shit. Hell, I learned more about the eating and mating habits of the Dung Beetle than I did about anything they show today. We've become so bad, we've got channels of channels just to see the stuff we originally watched on those channels. MTV2, the Science channel, Boomerang, Toon Disney, the Military channel. Why, I think some of the few channels that haven't lost their way are AMC, USA, FX, and Comedy Central. Ugh. Much of current television is mindless scripted cheap "reality" garbage. You want "reality" tv? Watch the damn traffic channel.

    I think people are mistaking the meaning of "Most absurd sounding "reality" TV show" to reality shows they hate.

    ALL reality shows are absurd. Because there's nothing real about them.

    IMHO, The Amazing Race is more of a competition than a reality show.

    Yeah, it's a competition/documentary.

    I avoid reality shows at all costs. Unless it has auditions. That shit is occasionally funny.

    Well, I was gonna say "Amazing Race Canada" but apparently it doesn't count . The absurd part is the fact that they don't leave the country. Amazing Race is all about travelling around the world. But I'm still totally gonna watch it, especially if my uncle does manage to get on it.

    'Holier Than Thou,' in which 12 seminary students compete for their own church by preaching sermons at a wide variety of denominations, and then the worst two are selected by their peers to visit 'The Confessional' to see who goes home.

    The whole concept in general is absurd. "Reality" TV shows are the reason not to watch TV.
