Originally, the appeal of reality shows was that there were no celebrities involved. They were shows that put real people into extreme situations.
But the Osbournes changed all that.
Now, there's a whole breed of reality shows out there that bank on the celebrity of their subjects. Some of the shows on this list have legitimate, undisputed celebrities at their core. Others have dredged up some quasi reality celebrities. Finally, there's a rash of shows that rely on a host or facilitator who is famous within their industry, like a stylist to the stars. That's the nice thing about celebrity. It's a very flexible word.
