It's not too much of a surprise that the reality TV gem Celebrity Circus didn't shine on past season 1. Who wants to watch d-list celebrities dangle from a trapeze? Well, not us, and apparently neither did many other people.

1 /10: 'Farmer Wants a Wife'

1/10 :'Farmer Wants a Wife'

We hate to pick on the poor, sweet, innocent farmer guy, but we don't have a choice. Farmer Wants A Wife was just terrible. Not only was it cheesy, but it was completely obvious that no matter what girl he chose they were going to blow that popsicle stand and move back to the city. It was an honest try though.

2 /10: 'Married by America'

2/10 :'Married by America'

In Married by America, contestants would be chosen by America to marry each other without ever having met. There's a reason why we did away with arranged marriages... and this show.

3 /10: 'My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance'

3/10 :'My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance'

Oh, seriously? At the time, no one realized that this unknown actor would soon be the bartender on Grey's Anatomy. Regardless, that still doesn't make this show ok. The idea was that this poor girl had to convince her family that some obnoxious guy was her fiance. They had to attend the wedding without objection for her to win the money. Ugh.

4 /10: 'Temptation Island'

4/10 :'Temptation Island'

We can't think of anything less tempting to watch than Temptation Island. As if relationships aren't challenging enough, why on earth would anyone think it's a good idea to travel to an island where hot people try to lure them to cheat? This could quite possibly be the worst reality TV show idea of all time.

5 /10: 'The Littlest Groom'

5/10 :'The Littlest Groom'

Did anyone watch this show? This hopeful groom was searching for love (much like The Bachelor) among both little people and average size women. Maybe it's just us, but The Littlest Groom was a poor judgment call in the world of reality TV.

6 /10: 'The Swan'

6/10 :'The Swan'

The reality TV show The Swan, strived to undo all of the efforts made by women to not be judged by their appearance. It took women and then completely altered their looks through drastic plastic surgery so they more happily "fit" the social norm.

7 /10: 'Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?'

Darva, Darva, Darva. Remember her? This idea ended in total disaster, as if we didn't see that coming. Rick Rockwell and Darva Conger's marriage was annulled soon after it happened and a restraining order soon followed.

8 /10: 'Who Wants to Marry My Dad?'

8/10 :'Who Wants to Marry My Dad?'

Well. The idea behind this Who Wants To Marry My Dad is that children would choose a mate for their single dad. Does this sound like something anyone would want to do? Or watch?

9 /10: 'Chaotic'

9/10 :'Chaotic'

Well, we hated Kevin Federline from the start. Watching a show about the decline of Britney Spear's career and her new found relationship with her back-up dancer did not peak our interest at all.

Yes, there were reality TV shows worse than Britney Spears' Chaotic. Here they are...
