It's been quite a decade; political strife, wars, and climate change. Fortunately, we have something to help us survive all these heavy things, and keep our brains from melting into mush; reality television.
The 2010s saw some great television; tears, fights, drama, all the things we love about reality t.v. Not only that, but who doesn't love watching these shows just to feel a little bit better about themselves and their own lives?
It would be lying to say Jenelle Evans doesn't make you feel like a pretty damn good mother, am I right?
The Bachelor/ The Bachelorette
It's the dating show that defined a generation and challenged our idea of what true love is. But, The Bachelor isn't just some dating show, it's become a phenomenon that has sparked it's own Bachelor Nation (legions of fans who even throw live finale parties.)
Every season, we look forward to the crazy limo arrivals, hundreds of red roses being handed out, the drunken antics of night one, all the tears, those crazy expensive dates, and of course a Neil Lane engagement ring to end the show.
90 Day Fiance
TLC's 90 Day Fiance started in 2014, and has become one of the channel's most popular shows. It follows American's who are dating someone from a different country as they apply for a K1 Visa to bring their partners over to the United States; the couples must get married within 90 days.
As you can imagine, there are all kinds of issues the couples must deal with. From problems with family, to the use of apps just to communicate.
And, who could forget the most infamous of couples, Danielle and Mohamed? We could never listen to the worlds "social media" the same way ever again.
The infamous words "RAHHNN STAHPPP" are forever ingrained into our brains, taking up space that could be used for stopping climate change or geometry.
Jersey Shore spawned what could be an entirely new dictionary full of words like "GTL," "smushing," and "grenades."
It was such a popular show that the cast reunited for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, bringing with them even more drama, fights, and Ronnie rampages.
Despite the reboot, we will forever continue to binge-watch the original seasons; you can never get enough of that orange, spray-tanned look.
After 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom came along to continue following the story lines of some of the girls. It became so popular that Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom OG were created.
The cast of these shows has been through some crazy shenanigans over the years, from awful boyfriends to weddings, to multiple children (usually with multiple fathers), fights, and dramatics.
The girls lives have changed massively over the years and we've been able to follow it all.
What reality shows are in store for us over the next decade? If they're anything like those from the 2010s, we can't wait to see!
