Hey guys! So this is another blog post from my 'TV Obsessions' segment, if you missed my previous one then make sure to check it out here. In today's post I'm going to be talking about my guilty pleasures! Which is basically my favourite reality tv shows (some may call it trashy TV but I think it deserves a bit of respect ;)) Anyway, I hope you like it! Let me know if you've watched any of these TV shows and tell me what you make of them!

Keeping Up With The Kardashians

I'm way too obsessed with the Kardashians and that can sound a bit worrying but I'm not the only one! I can honestly watch the same episode five times and never get bored of it. So much has happened to the Kardashian/Jenner family over the years and even though people joke about the show and say that they don't deserve to be on TV, I don't agree with it. Sure maybe they have done some things that they shouldn't have but we can take away something from their experiences. The Kardashian/Jenner clan are a big influence, on young adults especially, but I don't think that's a bad thing *prepares self for getting backlash*. If you don't watch it already then why not give it a go? It airs on E! on Sundays at 9pm.

And what's a summary about KUWTK without mentioning this:

Kocktails With Khloe

So this show is pretty new, in fact I don't think it's even been aired in the UK but you know me, I'm impatient and so I had to watch it on the internet. I'm a big fan of Khloe Kardashian so when I heard that she was going to have her own show I was very excited! I have to say I really like it, however, at times when the guests were asked a personal question it did get a bit awkward but she's only starting out so I'll see how the show progresses! I must say some of the drinking games sound fun and the snacks look delicious!

Geordie Shore

Gosh, you're all probably going to judge me for watching this but I just can't help it. I love the show and there's no way I won't watch it. Yeah it's a show about a group of people who go out partying all the time and get it on with strangers but I actually watch it for the storylines that go on inside the house. At the end of the day, the Geordie Shore housemates are normal people like us and I like to see how certain situations in their life unfold on screen and sometimes they make me shed a tear. The show is so funny as well, some of the one liners the housemates come up with are unbelieveable. Also, I absolutely love the Geordie accent! I am so used to the accent that I don't think I'd have trouble understanding someone who's a Geordie. A new season of Geordie Shore is coming back to MTV on the 15th March but why not catch up on all the previous series online?

Ex On The Beach

Another show about a group of people partying and getting it on with each other. You are so going to judge me even more now! Ex On The Beach is basically like Geordie Shore but it's on the beach and every series there's a new group of people. They live in a villa and party but their exes turn up unexpectedly, just imagine the drama! I hate confrontation and arguments but for some reason I love watching people arguing on TV, do I need help? Haha! I think you get the idea, I don't know in what other way you can describe a show like that but go and give it a watch! It's currently being aired on MTV every Tuesday at 10pm.

Celebrity Big Brother

Oh my goodness. I don't even know what to say. Have you watched the latest Celebrity Big Brother? Every year it's great but honestly nothing could beat the current series! I've been so obsessed with it, the amount of times I refreshed my browser during the day to see if there was any news from inside the house *facepalm*! The spin off show Celebrity Big Brother On The Side is amazing as well as it's just so well structured and both Rylan Clark-Neal and Emma Willis are amazing presenters! I am so sad the final is today, what am I going to do with all my time?! I like the normal Big Brother version as well but I think it's more exciting watching celebrities fight. One of my dreams/goals in life is to be on Big Brother but I don't know if I'll be able to survive all the drama. Even though the latest series is ending today, why don't you go and give it a watch on Demand 5!

Catfish: The TV Show

Another show that I love is Catfish: The TV Show. This is a show basically about the dangers of online dating, well not exactly dangers, but people seek out help to find out if the person they are talking to online is in fact real. There have been some heartbreaking stories and I think it's a must watch, especially for people who date online. I went through a phase once during a half term when I would not watch anything but this TV show! Honestly, I recorded all of the episodes and I watched it for most of the day, every single day (I had enough of it at the end though haha!). I haven't watched it for some time but since Celebrity Big Brother is ending today, I think I'll use that free TV time to catch up on Catfish. How handsome are Max and Nev though! They're coming to the UK to film a UK version and I am just so freakin' excited! I'm a bit worried it won't live up to its current level but we'll see! Maybe people here are even more crazy! ;) I'm not sure there's a new series currently being aired on MTV but if not then I'm pretty sure they still air some of the old episodes so if you want you can go and have a watch!

What do you think of my guilty pleasures? Have you watched any of the TV shows I mentioned?

Lots of Love,
