Reality TV shows are known to cross all possible boundaries when it comes to ratings and views. The more daring one show gets, the harder it gets for all the upcoming shows to fill the shoes of the predecessor. In order to become even more addictive and gain millions of views, screen-writers come up with a variety of over the top ideas that would seem crazy to an ordinary person. But not to them! And the funny thing is, people actually watch these shows! Here are 8 reality shows that have gone too far for rating.
Japanese shows have always been among the weirdest ones when it came to props. This one, Tore, is no different and apart from the usual trivia you get to see people mummified. Well, sort of. Each time a participant doesn’t answer the question correctly, he or she gets wrapped in white cloth. ‘Weird’ doesn’t even begin to cover it!
The creators of this show were probably inspired by the jail’s solitary confinement and that alone is quite a disturbing thought. The contestants of this show are kept in solitary for several weeks without any human contact whatsoever. During this time they have to complete all kinds of mental tasks with close to no sleep at all. This is just wicked!
Russians also know a thing or two about crazy games. In The Intercept contestants are being put on the other side of the law. The participants drive a stolen car and are considered hijackers. If they can evade police for over half an hour – the car is theirs!
