Comments Off on Surreal Life Returns + 5 More MTV Reality Shows That Deserve A Comeback

Surreal Life is a reality show following celebrity friendships and relationships that were popular in the early 2000s.   

Die-hard Surreal Life fans are gearing up for the series’ return to the small screen. The new season airs on VH1 Today, October 24. 

This season will feature some familiar faces, including Tamar Braxton, In Living Color’s Kim Coles, and even August Alsina, who could share a few details from recent events that surfaced on the internet. 

Arguably, some of the older reality shows can’t be compared to what’s on TV today. SOHH, here are a few series that deserve another round on TV:

1. Hell Date

BET recently pushed its latest reality show following the life of influencers, but Hell Date was just one show that was worth watching on the network. The hidden camera comedy followed guys and girls searching for love, only to end up on a date from hell. The show originally aired in 2007 with only two seasons.

2. Flavor Of Love

Reality TV can’t be discussed without mentioning Flavor of Love. Despite the internet being relatively new in 2006, this show went viral before it was even a thing and remains one of the most talked about with memes circulating on social media. 

In this generation, Flavor Flav may not be the best pick for the bachelor, but plenty of single men from this generation have a shot at taking the show over, such as Kodak Black, Lil Baby, and even Quavo.

3. Parental Control

Some people know what it’s like to have overbearing parents, and Parental Control exposed a life growing up in a house with little to no autonomy. The show originally aired on MTV in 2006 and allowed parents to pick two dates for their child who already had a partner that was no good. They either choose to continue to date their significant other or drop them for the next best thing.

4. Date My Mom

On this show, rather than dating for the parents’ interest, daters got to pick who to date based on what they learned from the mothers. MTV aired Date My Mom in 2004 and ended it two years later. At the end of the date, moms usually report back to their child in hopes they could find a new love interest.

5. Silent Library

This show is an MTV classic! Silent Library was based on a Japanese game show with a group of friends competing for cash. Contestants had to remain silent while enduring a bizarre stunt in a library. 

The cash value decreased if the stunt couldn’t be completed or the other participants interrupted with laughter. 

More reality shows have been rebooted and are making their way back to TV. Season 2 of College Hill: Celebrity Edition is also back with a brand new cast, including Ray J from last season. 

Other celebrities on the show include Amber Rose, Joseline Hernandez, and Iman Shumpert.

Last season, Stacey Dash, DreamDoll, and Nene Leakes were featured on the show.
