Not every reality series can be a hit like The Bachelor or Survivor (which, somehow, are still on the air). With the reality TV boom of the the last decade came a whole lot of failed shows that didn’t make it to a second season, for better or for worse. Here are some of the more notorious (and, to be honest, sadly missed) shows that didn’t live up to their creators’ expectations.
Rich Girls (2003-2004)
MTV’s documentary followed Ally Hilfiger (daughter of Tommy) and her best friend, Jaime Gleicher (daughter of luggage baron Leo) as they finished their final year of high school in New York and entered the real world. The real world, of course, meant Barnard for Gleicher and continuing to be rich for Hilfiger. It’s a shame this only had one season, because it was one of the greatest reality shows ever to air on television. Go ahead and try to tell me you haven’t had an existential crisis on par with that time Ally struggled with making a burrito.
