'Snake Salvation' & the Most Surreal Reality Shows Ever On Television

The way things are now with reality television, it's often hard to decipher if the networks have just run out of ideas, or if they're utilizing the most brilliant techniques possible to pull us in with absurd plot-lines and even better participants. It's probably a combination of both. However, we've gotten some really choice viewing options as of late, so it's time to a run down of the craziest reality TV shows we've ever seen.

They're The Best & The Worst (At the Same Time)

The way things are now with reality television, it's often hard to decipher if the networks have just run out of ideas, or if they're utilizing the most brilliant techniques possible to pull us in with absurd plot-lines and even better participants. It's probably a combination of both. However, we've gotten some really choice viewing options as of late, so it's time to a run down of the craziest reality TV shows we've ever seen.

'Snake Salvation'

And you thought the Westboro Baptists were strange? Well, now there's going to be a reptile-wielding pastor with a taste for scripture and a penchant for snakes coming to our small screen very soon. If that doesn't sound like the most fascinating hour you've ever spent listening to a sermon, then count yourself out of the vast majority of everyone everywhere.

'Amish Mafia'

I'm not sure who came up with this idea, but it's pretty awesome. The show centers around the rule-keepers in the Amish community who may or may not follow the rules themselves. It's drama at its finest, even if those reenactments are super, super lame. Plus, one of the Mafia members just got sentenced to prison for a DUI. The excitement never ends.

'Kid Nation'

Not sure if you guys remember this, but if not, it can be summed up very, very easily. In 2007, CBS decided to drop 40 children, left completely to their own devices, on a huge ranch. What could possssibly go wrong? Besides what already had for these poor children, since they had parents that thought this was a good enough idea to sign them up.

'Bridalplasty'

In case you didn't see all the advertisements on the subway like I did, this is the show wherein brides-to-be compete for plastic surgeries. Because, ya know, E! Network is clearly super concerned with positive body image issues in the female population. Let's pour one out for our generation on this one.

'My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé'

So, the premise was basically that a woman horrifies her family by bringing home a guy she thinks is disgusting, but she's doing it in order to win it big and make some dough. But little does she know, the guy is actually an actor, and he is going out of his way to be as terrible as possible, much to her chagrin. When she finally finds out, somehow her family forgives her for this egregious offense and they all live happily ever after with the money. Gag.
