Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!  http://www.brokeandbookish.com/

I have no interest in searching for days to find unique book titles so I'm doing my own thing again. This time it is 10 Reality TV Shows that I love.

1) Great British Bake Off
I arrived very late to this and loved Mel and Sue and the challenges. Despite the adverts and with a new line up, I'm pleased to still very much love watching this. Who can fail to be entertained by a woeful soggy bottom?

2) Deadliest Catch
I never get tired of this. I have no interest in fishing personally but I love Deadliest Catch. I love the fighting on the Wizard, the pranks on The Time Bandit, Wild Bill, The Northwestern, the fight to find the best grounds...addictive!

3) Bering Sea Gold
I love watching all the fights between the gold divers and the sight of those huge cleanups by Mr Gold and his crew! I'm amused when The Kelly's start fighting and there have been really funny and sad moments in it.

4) Gold Rush
This was the first gold mining show I watched and it got me hooked. I loved watching Todd's crew learning on the job, the jungle madness, Parker fighting with his crew...I just love Dave, Chris and Freddy!

5) Masterchef Australia
I love all the UK, Canada and NZ versions but this one is my favourite. I love the challenges, the eliminations, the pure drama as you root for your favourites. I've still to watch the US version which I plan to do this winter.

6) Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge
My dad loves his films so when I saw this on TV I had to watch it and we love it! Three extreme rounds of physical competition against each other followed by the assault course from hell for the winner! 

7) Ax Men
This is not a job for the fainthearted for sure and I became addicted to it. The fighting between the crews, the dangerous work on land and in the rivers, it was just great to watch. So sad that there are no more seasons to come.
 
8) Extreme Makeover Home Edition
I used to watch the cosmetic surgery version with horror and then I found this one. I sit and blubber over the terrible conditions these people lived in and their health issues then shouted 'move that bus' to see their beautiful new homes! Also loved Ty!

9) Yukon Gold
Another great gold mining show that I really need to catch up on. I never get tired of watching them do the cleanup and see what gold they managed to get. 

10) Wicked Tuna 
I like a lot of other fishing shows but this is one of the best. I like the competing element and the drama. Does anyone else just love Wilson???

  1. The only ones I watch are Masterchef Australia and well the Dutch version of Great British Bake Off. Here in the Netherlands it's called Heel Holland Bakt. & I love those two shows. They are really fun and I'm always amazed in what they bake and cook.

  2. I don't watch much reality TV anymore. I do enjoy home improvement shows from time to time and Mr. Barb loves watching cooking shows, especially ones about grilling. Glad you put your own swing on today's list. It didn't take me long to find unique titles so I'm not sure what that says about me :)

    1. A lot of these bizarre titles pop up in genres I don't read so I wasn't feeling like going hunting! Glad you found it easier though!

  8. Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge?! GIMME A HELL YEAH!
    I haven't watched it yet, but LOVE Steve Austin! He was one of my favourite wrestlers, most of his movies are cool & his podcast is pretty entertaining as well. Big fan here!

    I enjoy The Great British Bake Off, much more than the Australian one. Those two young ladies on it are super annoying, the English team is much nicer!

    We are not watching a lot of Reality TV, but when we do it's Food shows like Food Safari, anything Gordon Ramsay or River Cottage & similar shows.

    1. I don't watch wrestling but my dad likes his films. I loved the sound of the show and it lived up to expectations! HELL YEAH! I've even got a T Shirt of Steve Austin wrestling the Cookie Monster! I haven't seen the Aussie Bake Off but I've been looking online for it.

  9. I watch the fishing shows every year. It's always fun to see what do and don't catch and some of it is scary.
