6 reality shows on Netflix that you need to start watching ASAP

These will be your new obsessions.

We've come a long way since reality shows consisted of footage of contestants sleeping and talent shows that were filmed in the conference rooms in airport hotels.


Yes, reality TV has been an ever-growing genre of entertainment in the last few decades to the point where we are totally spoilt for choice. Want to watch a show about competitive flower arranging? It's there. Want to see women in labour compete in a quiz show for cash prizes? That exists too.

However, with so much choice, sometimes it can be hard to find something you'll actually like.

Well, Netflix has a serious selection of reality shows and some of them are absolute gems.

Here are six we'd recommend binge watching.


1. Girls Incarcerated: Young and Locked Up

Plot: Fights, friendship, dating, rules. Teenage life is full of drama. But behind bars, the stakes are so much higher.



2. Queer Eye

Plot: An all-new Fab Five advise men on fashion, grooming, food, culture and design in this modern reboot of the Emmy Award-winning reality series.



3. Cheapest Weddings

5. Project Runway

6. Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father
