2. Susunu! Denpa Shōnen (1998)
Obstacles of this reality program consisted of being compelled to live naked alone in a home, living just on sweepstakes and being imprisoned in a space with just a television screen that showed games of your preferred sports group.

4. All My Babies’ Mamas (2013)
Atlanta rap artist Shawty Lo fathered 11 kids with 10 various females over the years. The point of this (dreadful) program was to toss them all into the very same home and see exactly what occurred. The NAACP petitioned against it and ultimately Oxygen cancelled the program prior to it even aired.
5. Megan Wants a Millionaire (2009)
Reality programs are often implicated of actively casting “insane individuals” or individuals on the spectrum of mental instability, however it had not been up until Rock of Love candidate Megan Hauserman’s spin-off program that individuals recognized that may not be such a fantastic thing.

6. The Swan (2004)

7. Welcome to the Neighborhood (2005)

The program was cancelled prior to it being aired to sponsors pulling out.

The idea of this program had not been really that strange: 20 bachelors contended for the love of one participant, prohibited to speak about their careers and compelled to put on scary phantom of the opera masks so that she could not see their faces and rely exclusively on character. The idea might have endured if it had not been for the unusual choice for a host. Monica Lewinsky hosted this program for a period up until audiences were like, “Well, that was that, but I’m done with this.”
9. Man vs. Beast (2003)
“Hey I wonder if orangutans can climb things faster than humans can?” – some stoned Fox executive.
