I have streamed my fair share of shows, and lately, I have been looking for the best reality shows in Netflix. Reality shows feature real-life situations that are unscripted. They are not the same as documentaries since documentaries are designed to educate viewers whereas reality shows focus on drama and personal conflict. I’m a bit of reality show junkie. I love watching someone else’s drama for a while to escape my own, haha! Here are some of the best reality shows on Netflix that you should totally add to your list.
The Best Reality Shows On Netflix
