Reality TV has surged in the last couple of decades and has become a huge part of pop culture. Even with all its popularity, though, there are still tons of high-profile reality shows that aren't available on Netflix.
In the 90's, MTV dominated reality television with shows like Real World and Road Rules.
The reality TV explosion of the early 2000s, however, gave us iconic series like Survivor, Big Brother and The Bachelor.
While it's true that oftentimes reality TV can become outdated quickly due to how much of a reflection it is of the time period it's filmed in, that doesn't make the episodes any less relevant.
There's still a lot of enjoyment and nostalgia to be had from rewatching old episodes of our favorite reality shows.
We've compiled a list of those shows below.
Now, Teen Mom can mean Teen Mom OG to most, but for the sake of this list, we mean all of the Teen Mom shows.
Teen Mom OG has had six seasons worth of episodes, and Teen Mom 2 had had eight. Even Teen Mom 3 had a 13-episode season.
With all the drama that has surrounded Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 in the last couple seasons, it would make perfect sense for Netflix to add them to their queue.prevnext
Little People, Big World
The show chronicles "the lives of the six-member Roloff family farm near Portland, Oregon. Many of the episodes focus on the parents, Matt and Amy, and one of their children, Zach, who have dwarfism."
In its more-than-a-decade run on TLC the show has put out almost 300 episodes.
There's more than enough content there for Netflix viewers to consume.prevnext
19 Kids and Counting / Counting On
Initially airing as 17 Kids and Counting, and then jumping to 18 Kids and Counting, the show ended on its final moniker.
19 Kids and Counting "featured the Duggar family: parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their nineteen children—nine girls and ten boys, all of whose names begin with the letter 'J.' "
A well-beloved show, after it ended in a swirl of controversy, the series Counting On spun out of it and has only continued to garner more and more high praise.
Between the two shows, there are 12 seasons worth of episodes that would be ideal for bingeing, but, unfortunately, neither show is available on Netflix.prevnext
