Reality shows where people compete for odd things in odd ways have become a television staple over the last two decades. But even amongst the oddest, a few stand out as being just too weird, for example, Discovery’s “Naked And Afraid.

Here goes the Top 10 most bizarre reality TV shows you’ve never seen.

10.The Littlest Groom (2004)

"The Littlest Groom" was a weak attempt at a stand out among dating shows — think "The Bachelor" – on a smaller scale: a dozen dwarf women competing with average-sized females for the affections of a 4-foot-5-inch bachelor. It had very little success. 

9.Mr. Personality (2003)

The concept of this show wasn't actually that weird: twenty bachelors competed for the love of one contestant, forbidden to talk about their jobs and forced to wear creepy phantom of the opera masks so that she couldn't see their faces and rely solely on personality.  

The concept could have survived if it wasn't for the bizarre choice of host. Monica Lewinsky hosted this show for a season until viewers I guess were like, "Well, that was that, but I'm done with this." 

8.The Swan (2004)

Each contestant was given a beauty team. Each time included a coach, therapist, trainer, cosmetic surgeon, and a dentist. The goal was to have an "ugly duckling" transformation into a beautiful swan. It aired for two seasons.  

The cancellation was probably a direct result of the horrible message it sent to kids about accepting their appearances. 

7.Naked Jungle (2000)

In 2000 the UK’s Channel 5 released a show called Naked Jungle. It featured an out of shape former children’s TV presenter and several contestants competing in various physical challenges while all stark naked.  

People who tuned in for nakedness were disappointed by the choice of contestants, while people who turned in to watch contestants clamber over obstacles were disappointed by how tacky is was.  

6.Virgin Territory (2014)

Sounding worryingly similar to 30 Rock's spoof TV show MILF Island, this failed pitch pitted real-life virgins against each other to win the ultimate prize of sex with a porn star.  

It was developed by the guy who helped promote Paris Hilton's sex tape and he even placed ads to recruit the carnally unaware, probably in Warhammer stores. Jenna Jameson was "approached" to star. 

5.'Susunu! Denpa Shōnen' (1998)

Challenges of this reality show included being forced to live naked alone in an apartment, living only on commercial sweepstakes and being locked in a room with only a TV screen that showed games of your favorite sports team. If your team wins you get to eat, if they lose you don't. (It was as insane as it sounds.)

4.All My Babies' Mamas (2013)

Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo fathered 11 children with 10 different women over the years. The point of this (awful) show was to throw them all into the same house and see what happened.  

The NAACP petitioned against it and eventually Oxygen cancelled the show before it even aired.

3.Man vs. Beast (2003)


Humans compete against animals in various sports in a bizarre game show that scarily made it to air in the States.  

Highlights included a sprinter racing a giraffe and then a zebra and an elephant pitted against 44 midgets as they tried to pull DC-10 jets. Unsurprisingly, yet sadly, animal rights groups freaked out and the UK version (presented by John Fashanu) was shelved. Damn you ITV. 

2.Gaki no Tsukai (1989-present)


If you get a question wrong in this popular Japanese tv game show, a man is slowly dropped with his butt and/or genitals directly in your face. 

1.Boy Meets Boy (2003) 

You would expect that the first same-sex dating show would do some revolution on TV. 

Instead, viewers watched gay bachelor James Getzlaff romance 15 men; unknown to him, where half of them were just pretending to be gay and would win a prize when they got chosen. People who watched the series considered it cruel, offensive, and worst of all, boring.
