Top 10 Most Outrageous Reality TV Moments of the Decade

10. Hot tub threesome, "The Real World: Las Vegas" (MTV, 2002)
These days the intramural sexual escapades of "Real World" housemates have become an integral part of the show. But when Brynn, Steven and Trishelle decided to have a steamy threesome on the third day of filming the Vegas season, they officially set the bar for all future Real Worlders -- and every copycat show with a Jacuzzi.

9. Team Man vs. Camel, "Man vs. Beast 2" (Fox, 2004)
Sure, the beast typically had no idea it was competing with the man. But that didn't matter to Fox back in its heyday of headline-grabbing reality development. The show's apex of ridiculousness came when a team of four midgets faced off against a camel in a relay race -- and lost in a photo finish.


8. Somethin smells, "Flavor of Love" (VH1, 2006)
Season 2 of VH1's "Rapper Bachelor" began with a wannabe paramour named Somethin letting loose with somethin' never seen before on reality TV. Let's ask Wikipedia's episode guide to describe the action: "After the five girls, Hood, Bamma, H-Town, Choclate and Saaphyri, were eliminated, the contestants discovered that Somethin had defecated on the floor during the elimination ceremony because she couldn't hold it in or go to the bathroom."

7. Fairplay lies, "Survivor" (CBS, 2003)
On Season 7 in the Pearl Islands, Jonny "Fairplay" Dalton pulled off what host Jeff Probst called the "greatest lie in 'Survivor' history," pre-arranging with a friend to announce that his very alive grandmother had died so Fairplay could win a reward challenge.

6. Small vs. regular-sized girls, "The Littlest Groom" (Fox, 2004)
The twist in this short-run (2 episodes) dwarf "Bachelor" was the cringe-inducing introduction of average girls to battle midgets for the heart of 4-foot-5 Glen Foster. I guess if you're watching a show called "The Littlest Groom," you deserve to cringe a little.
