I dislike ALL celebrity reality shows. All has-beens and wanna-bees. I've never heard of most of the 'celebreties' and those I have heard of I would rather forget. There is no entertainment value whatsoever for me. I'd rather it out in the rain than see them on my TV. Thank god for Netflix and iPlayer.
