'RHONJ's Joe Giudice & Other Terrible People in Reality TV History

The reality of reality TV is that its entertainment value is 100% reliant on the stupidity of human beings. That said, there's really only so much we can take. The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Joe Giudice is only the latest reality star to make headlines for an astoundingly un-PC statement: in the last installment of RHONJ, Joe made the offensive case that "Autism isn't really a bad disease," claiming that fellow cast members Jacqueline and Chris use their son's disability as an "excuse." Here are some other reality TV cast members that have made us question whether or not they actually know that they're on network television.

Alexis Neiers on 'Pretty Wild'

I don't know about you, but Alexis Neiers is by far the worst person I've ever wanted to know absolutely everything about. Pretty Wild accidentally became the greatest reality TV show ever to air when Neiers was indicted for her association with The Bling Ring. Her trials became the show's main plot points, and a year later Emma Watson is playing her in a Sofia Coppola movie. Some of our least favorite/favorite Alexis Neiers moments: spontaneously vacationing in Cabo days before a court hearing, planning to pole dance at her little sister's sweet sixteen, leaving 14 hysterical voicemails in Nancy Jo Sales' inbox.

Pretty Much Everyone on 'Big Brother'

This season of Big Brother has been making headlines (not the good kind) for racist comments made by its offensively ignorant cast members and caught on tape. Catch up on the stupidity surrounding houseguest Jeremy and Spencer Clawson's drama for a good old-fashioned cringe-sesh.

Kendall and Kylie on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'

Little Kendall and Kylie are all grown up now, but watching them get there was emotionally traumatic. We don't want to say that they're bad people, because they're basically children — but they're definitely some of the most disturbing people we've ever seen on TV. Rewind to the first few seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians to see them as 8-year-old pole dancers.

Babs on 'Princesses: Long Island'

Some people might say that Amanda is the worst princess on Long Island, but I have news for them: almost everything that's terrible about Amanda is her mother's fault. Each thing Babs does on camera is the worst thing imaginable, from hitting on her daughter's (clearly gay, by the way) boyfriend, to making gross sexual comments every chance she gets, to that horrifying portrait of her and her daughter that's hanging on her bedroom wall. Babs wins the prize for reality TV star too terrible to even be interesting.
