TV's most addicting reality shows

I thought nothing could compare to the guilty pleasures that MTV's "Jersey Shore" and Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" gave me, but after flipping through the channels of my TV last night, I was clearly wrong.

I happened to land on TLC's newest reality show "Big Sexy." If the title isn't captivating enough, the girls on the show are trying to promote that you can be "sexy" and overweight.

"Big Sexy" premiered August 30 at 10 p.m. It follows the lives of Leslie, Tiffany, Audrey, Nikki, and Heather as they strive to be plus size models in New York. These girls are into fashion and partying and they are not afraid to let the camera capture their honesty. But I couldn't help but laugh while watching the episode. It seems that reality shows are getting more outrageous by the minute, and to have a plus size model say that she would rather be naked all day then wear clothes, is an image I just don't want to picture.

So you be the judge. Tune into TLC on Tuesday nights and watch "Big Sexy." Is it really a reality show worth our time? Or is it simply just on air for the purpose of a guilt pleasure? I think it's more of a so bad it's good situation.
