Reality T.V. And Game Shows It Is Okay To Be On

6 Reality tV and game shows You could be on without upsetting your mom

You won't (completely) disgrace your family by being on these shows.


Reality T.V. gets a bad reputation sometimes. Yes, there are some shows that less than desirable to be on. For example, even though I am a huge fan of it, I am not sure I would ever really want to start on The Bachelor. Do I really want my grandma to see me kissing a man who also has 20 other girlfriends? No. Definitely not.

However, there are some shows that would be appropriate for your family to watch you on and those sometimes are the best ones. So if you ever want to be on a reality T.V. show, here are six shows that 1. would be a blast to be on and 2. don't completely disgrace your family in the process.

1. Big Brother

This is a great show where if you win, you get A LOT of money...half a million dollars to be exact. All you have to do is live in a house with around 15 strangers for an entire summer, win some competitions, make strong alliances, and be the last one standing with the most votes! Easy right? Well, not exactly, but it would be such a fun show to be on.

While you could potentially get yourself into some hot water by being on this, if you are a good person to begin with, you probably won't. The only time contestants start crossing over into the disgraced category is when they were already not such a great people, but now they are just on camera for everyone to see and make comments about it.

2. Wipe Out

Hilarious? Check. Family approved? Check. Embarrassing at times? Also check. Wipe out is something that I have always wanted to be on and even tried to sign up when I turned 18 (turns out, you have to live in California to be on it, which I do not). It seems like a lot of fun and a little painful, but that is a good result when it comes to being on a reality T.V. show.

3. Chopped

Four contestants. One mystery basket. 30 minutes to create an amazing dish with the most random ingredients you can think of. If you are a chef, this is the show for you. You get to prove your skins, win money and be on an iconic Food Network show. Honestly, being on any Food Network show would be a win within itself even if you come in last place. Expect maybe Worst Cooks In America. You don't want to come in last place on that one.

Helpful Hint: If you make it to the end, don't try to use the ice cream machine with five minutes left. Just trust me on this one.

4. Family Feud

You can't disgrace your family if they are on the show with you! Family Feud is a game show where you get to guess the top answers of a survey and win money or cars, but it is also a show where it is somewhat okay to say the most ridiculous things as long as it is up on the board! It is simple, but amazing.

5. Below Deck

To be on this show, you either have to work on a mega yacht or be a guest on a mega yacht... neither of those sound too bad if we are being honest. Working on the boat means you have to serve multi-millionaires hand and foot, but at the end of the week, you get a ridiculous tip that you then get to use to explore the beautiful country that you are in (usually Italy, Greece, etc.). And like I said, if you are on the show as the guest, that means you are living a life of luxury and nothing could be better.

6. American Idol

This or any singing show should make your family proud. They don't let bad singers (like me) on the show so if you are able to make is far, that is something for everyone who even slightly knows you to be proud about. And if you don't win, you can always become a C list celebrity who sells Sugar Bear Hair on their Instagram! It's a win-win!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
