In the cinematic world, reality TV is the closest thing a viewer can get to authentic human conversations. That and some very unique qualities make this modern-day television genre addictive and very easily binge-able.
A viewer can find a reality TV show for almost anything and that’s where Netflix comes in. The biggest streaming platform in the world has some of the most riveting reality shows based on all sorts of things, ranging from cooking to in-house interior designing. Whatever topic piques a subscriber’s interest, chances are, Netflix has a reality show for it. Here are some of the best the fans can start binge-watching right now.
Amazing Interiors is a soulful reality TV show that represents the single biggest thing humans want from their lives – a home to come back to. The creators take the viewers to houses that sport some of the most breathtakingly good interior designs.
From the outside, these houses look like any other, but inside, they hold many secrets. One season and twelve episodes (30 minutes each) long, Amazing Interiors is easily binge-able.
Created by Adam DiVello, Selling Sunset’s first season was released back in 2019, with seasons two and three premiering in 2020. Based on the lives of a few real estate agents from LA’s Oppenheim Group, this reality TV show gives a sneak peek into the pressures of the real estate world.
Heather, Christine, Chrishell, Davina, Maya, Amanza, and Mary, are the names of the agents, who, along with their bosses Jason and Brett Oppenheim, tackle their personal as well as professional lives.
8You Vs Wild
If someone is a fan of interactive cinema, then You Vs Wild doesn’t disappoint. Based on the concept of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Bear Grylls offers a chance to the viewers to choose their own destiny in the wild.
One can only imagine the trouble Grylls must have gone through to provide this content for Netflix. The show is sure to provide the viewers with a lot of chills and maybe a bit of guilt for putting the host in precarious situations.
Chef’s Table is a reality show made for food lovers. The creator of the show, David Gelb focuses on profiling different chefs in each episode, who specialize in different dishes.
To date, six seasons of Chef’s Table have been released with six episodes each until season three. From season four onwards, it becomes four episodes each. The concept of the show has been a huge hit. So much so that it has warranted a spin-off in France called Chef’s Table France.
6Rhythm + Flow
A reality TV show focusing on the world of hip hop, Rhythm + Flow features some of the most outstanding young rappers from across the United States. Judges Chance The Rapper and Cardi B, with some occasional guest judges, leave no stone unturned as they praise, criticize, and celebrate the brand of music on offer.
The first season of the show was released in 2019 and it was a huge hit among the masses. Netflix has renewed Rhythm + Flow for a second season and it is expected to be out in 2021.
Dating Around lives up to its name quite wonderfully. This reality TV show doesn’t ask the contestants to do anything out of the ordinary; they just ask him or her to go on five blind dates in the same restaurant.
These dates are full of awkward moments as the dater cannot commit to a single person, keeping in mind he/she has to meet more people. The dater is then asked to give one name, who is worthy of a second date. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
Narrated by the hilarious Michelle Buteau, The Circle is a one of a kind reality show. Contestants are made to sit in separate apartments and they have to talk to each other via a technology called The Circle.
This technology is a mix of Instagram, Siri, and whatnot. The point is to gain popularity through the use of words. A person can pretend to be anyone and can talk in any way. Back in March 2020, Netflix renewed the show for two more seasons.
3Love Is Blind
The concept of Love is Blind is something very unique, to say the least. As the title suggests, there are six couples on the show, who not only talk to each other but also fall in love and get engaged. All of this before they have even seen each other.
They can also marry one another by the end of the show but not everyone goes through with it, quite understandably. Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Love is Blind was renewed for two more seasons in March 2020.
Queer Eye is one of the most breathtaking reality shows on Netflix right now. Jonathan Van Ness, Bobby Berk, Tan France, Karamo Brown, and Antoni Porowski take the viewers on a surreal journey, giving them an insight into the LGBTQ community.
The show has been shot in several parts of the world and it has changed a lot of people’s lives. While it does make the viewers shed a tear from time to time, Queer Eye is all about positivity.
1The Great British Bake Off
Baking is a true art and the Great British Bake Off has made a sport out of it. Based in the United Kingdom, this reality TV show features 12 bakers, who are asked to partake in three challenges every weekend, namely, a signature bake, a technical challenge, and the showstopper. These challenges aren’t as easy as the names suggest.
The Great British Bake Off is an 11-season long ride for the viewers but once someone starts this show, they usually end up watching it to the last second.
