Sometimes, a dose of semifictional reality is just what you need! Yes, we're talking about reality TV shows, and you know what? There are tons of them on Netflix - probably more than you thought!
We all know about the buzzy reality titles like Queer Eye and The Great British Baking Show, but there are a ton of other reality shows on Netflix, from tense competition shows and docu-soaps to mellower lifestyle shows. There are even some reality shows that take you behind the scenes of places you would have never considered, like factories, hospitals, and more. And while much of what Netflix offers falls into the reality competition category, there are also plenty of shows outside that realm if you're not into watching a repetitive competition format for hours.
If you're tired of your usual reality show rotation, we've got plenty of suggestions for you that run the gamut. We've rounded up a variety of the best reality offerings currently on Netflix, from cooking shows to drama-filled picks and everything in between. Who knows, maybe you'll find a brand-new series that will completely capture your heart - or, if not your heart, your reality-TV-loving mind. Enjoy!
