Reality TV might not be everyone’s favorite type of programming but it is one of our biggest guilty pleasures and the reason is because of the usual, good-looking cast members.
Take the perfect example, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The family reality TV show is the most popular of them all and you can’t deny the main reason why is because of how attractive they all individually are. Besides that, it is just pure entertainment. The Kardashian sisters are most famous for their show which got them business deals and most of them are in the beauty and fashion industry.
Many reality TV shows after Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered, have followed their footsteps and established a cast of basically really attractive people. It seems like that is the foundation for building a successful reality TV show considering how the Kardashians made a name for themselves after their show debuted.
Although, reality TV personalities are usually nice to look at, they do have more than that going for them but it doesn’t hurt to be good-looking in that industry. Many of these cast members are coming from already famous families, or just trying to get their own business out there. Some of these businesses include blogging or vlogging, singing, acting, modeling, etc. Regardless, these “unscripted” shows become successful mostly because of the style and overall appearance of these cast members.
So there have been numerous reality TV shows and a lot of the personalities that come out do become famous for, basically, just being themselves. A lot of them also just become very familiar faces and so, we rounded up 15 Hot Celebs Who Make Reality TV Enjoyable. Some of them you might recognize while for others, you might want to start catching them on their show.
15 Scheana Marie
Another one of Vanderpump Rules' good-looking cast members makes it to the list. Scheana Marie appears on the Bravo TV series as herself, working as a bartender but also pursuing her music career. Before that reality TV show, Marie was a part of a huge cheating scandal that involved Eddie Cibrian, LeAnne Rimes, and Brandi Glanville, who appeared as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
After that whole mess, the brunette finally got to do her own thing on her own reality TV show which is where you can watch her most of the time, bartending and singing her heart out. Besides all the drama, Marie is not bad to look at. The 30-year-old knows exactly what she likes and doesn’t let anything stop her. Take her wedding as the perfect example. The ceremony was broadcasted on the show where we got to see her one-of-kind wedding dress - a custom crop top with pearls along with a white mermaid skirt. As you may have guessed it, the dress certainly caused a mix of reactions. At the end of the day, the SUR waitress has a great body so why not flaunt it, right? We wonder what hubby, Michael Shay, thought about the whole thing.
14 Eva Marie
Another Marie you might enjoy watching on TV is from E!’s Total Divas. Eva Marie, the red-head on the reality show, is a professional WWE wrestler who fights other hot women in the ring. The 5’8” beauty is known for being the underdog on the show. She is also a model and American actress which she began pursuing when she was attending college at California State University in Fullerton. In December 2012, Marie was featured on the Sports Illustrated website as Lovely Lady of the Day. She has embraced a few magazine covers such as Glam Fit Magazine, Muscle and Fitness Hers, and the list goes on. The fitness inspiration has also been featured in Maxim in the September edition as well as ranked as number 83 on Maxim’s Hot 100 in 2014.
13 Stassi Schroeder
Stassi Schroeder is also another piece of eye candy from Vanderpump Rules on Bravo. The controversial blonde has definitely made a name for herself on the show for being, well just that, controversial. You can watch her on the show where she is usually the center of all the drama going on, mostly because she is not afraid to speak her mind. The former SUR waitress has been on and off the reality TV show but when she was a regular, her modeling skills paid off during the steamy photo shoots her co-stars and co-workers would have. Before all the fame, Stassi attended Loyola Marymount University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s in English Writing. While going to school, she did some modeling, appearing in magazines such as Italian Vanity Fair and US Weekly.
12 Jax Taylor
Speaking of Stassi Schroeder and Vanderpump Rules, Jax Taylor makes the list of Reality TV eye candy. Oh Jax, he is sure nice to look at, but that is pretty much it when it comes to the TV hunk. Not to be harsh, but the SUR bartender can be cold-blooded himself. If you’ve watched the reality show, you know he is not the kind of friend you would want in your life, especially when dealing with hard times. Taylor, like his ex-girlfriend Schroeder, has also been the center of attention when it comes to all the juicy drama the reality TV series has to offer. He was in the middle of a cheating outrage with Schroeder and some names we mentioned earlier on this list; Kristen Doute and Tom Sandoval. According to the show, Kristen and Jax had hooked up while he was dating Schroeder and she was dating Sandoval and the rest is history. Aside from all the drama, the model is known for his sex addiction as seen on the show. With his sexy looks, the TV personality booked a few gigs including with Trump Magazine, GQ, and Abercrombie & Fitch.y.
11 Audrina Patridge
Audrina Patridge first appeared on our screens as a cast member on the MTV series, The Hills. She instantly took our breath away with her stunning appearance and knew she was more than just a reality TV personality. Her down-to-earth personality made us fall for her even more. She was never the one to start the drama, but instead, the one trying to end it. The striking 30-year-old was seen on the show getting played by her on and off boyfriend, Justin Bobby, but eventually ended the toxic relationship. She is currently in a committed relationship with Corey Bohan. The MTV reality TV series gave Patridge the pass to Hollywood. She has appeared on Dancing With The Stars and Into the Blue: The Reef.
10 Kristin Doute
From Bravo TV’s Vanderpump Rules, Kristin Doute appears to always have a boyfriend but one of the reasons we can guess why is because of her attractive style. The brunette babe sports a rocker chic vibe on the show but can switch it up to her girly side with a summer dress. She can pull it all off. Also, have you seen her on the beach? The Bravo TV star usually wears skimpy swimsuits when she’s out on the beach, or partying away with friends poolside or on a boat. If you have seen the show though, Doute isn’t exactly the most popular character on the series. In fact, she is hated by a lot of her cast members. Their drama is for sure entertaining to watch and although we now know that she is not the most liked one, we can dig her chill style while she’s getting slapped or working.
9 Joe Gorga
You might recognize him from Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey as the husband of Melissa Gorga (who we will be seeing later). We have super moms who can do it all; look good while doing it all. Then we have super dads. Joe Gorga is one super dad. He is a devoted father who puts his kids and wife first, but also knows how to take care of himself. Who wouldn’t want that as a husband? Not only is he one attractive father and husband, but overall, his personality is cool, too. Although he is in a drama-filled reality TV show, he is not the one to start all the mess. He’s usually the mediator or just does not want anything to do with it. The Italian father is Mr. Eye Candy of the Real Housewives. He can do it all, keeping both his values and appearance intact. Melissa, you have a winner.
8 Porsha Williams
Another Real Housewives star you might recognize is Porsha Williams. The model and TV personality was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and now she is the star of her own hometown. Before she appeared as a cast member for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Williams was already working her way up to the entertainment industry. Ever since she was young, her good looks have been put to work as a model for music videos and for a calendar for the “Atlanta Dymes.” So she has been representing her town since her early years, too.
She was also seen in another reality TV show before the Bravo TV hit show, where her first wedding was broadcasted in the WE TV series Platinum Weddings. She got married to football player, Kordell Stewart. Finally, the model-turned-TV personality first appeared on the Housewives series in 2012 where her marriage took a turn for the worst before filing for divorce.
7 GG Golnesa
Co-starring with Mike Shouhed on Shahs of Sunset, is GG Golnesa. The Persian beauty made her way to the reality TV industry as the youngest daughter of her wealthy Muslim family. In the beginning of the show, she was known as “Persian Princess” but often came out sort of brat-ish with her short-tempered and defensive personality. On the show, GG is seen getting into a couple of arguments with some of her closest friends who are also stars of the show.
Throughout it all, she eventually made us keep watching her with her exotic appearance and gangster rap style. She has admitted she likes guy with tattoos and won’t date anybody who doesn’t have one. She has eight tattoos herself so it looks like she is on the right track in trying to attract the men of her choice.
6 Brie Bella
Nikki Bella's sister, Brie Bella, is not only eye candy but also an inspiration for women all over the world, particularly in the fitness industry. Bella is a professional WWE wrestler, co-starring with Eva Marie in E!’s Total Divas, where you can watch her flaunt her amazing physique she worked hard for as well as kicking butt inside the ring. She is married Bryan Danielson, who is also a professional WWE wrestler. The two married in 2014. Brie is known to take environmental issues seriously as well as animal cruelty. Hot, tough, and a caring heart all at the same time.
5 Jason Wahler
Remember Laguna Beach and The Hills on MTV? The two series captured young adults from graduating high school to achieving their dream careers. Jason Wahler was one of them, but his path took a whole other turn from the rest of his cast members. He was the eye candy in his high school so you know what that means. Yes, along with eye candy comes a bad boy personality (usually) at that age. The Laguna Beach veteran was seen as you guessed it, a player in the streets, playing with girls’ hearts in his town and yet, they couldn’t help themselves but throw themselves at the bad boy.
He was later seen on The Hills where he tried capturing the heart of one of his ex-girlfriends, Lauren Conrad. She fell for his image again, unfortunately, but finally he was dismissed from her life. From a player in high school to a bad boy in real life, Wahler took his edginess to another reality TV show but this time on VH1's Celebrity Rehab. Oh yeah, you know what all of that is about. The TV personality struggled with addiction throughout his younger years and finally decided to check himself in as seen on the show. He’s been through a lot of ups and downs but fortunately, doing healthier than before and looking even better.
4 Tom Sandoval
Another man eye candy, except, super adorable and who seems like a good boy, so far. Vanderpump Rules has a lot of girls crushing on 32-year-old cutey, Tom Sandoval. Unfortunately, ladies, the reality TV personality is taken by another lady, Ariana Madix, another cast member of the Bravo TV series. By watching the show and stalking them on Instagram, they seem to be doing well. So while all we can do with Sandoval is stare, the bartender sure knows how to carry himself and the girls love it. Not to mention, his ex-girlfriend, Kristen Doute, also a cast member of the show, had a hard time letting her ex go. We feel you, Kristen. It was a wild ride post-breakup for the two, mostly because of Doute’s poor way of handling the whole situation.
He eventually confirmed his relationship with Madix. The stud is sure to be making heads turn while he is working or just out and about, so Madix, keep an eye out for him.
3 Melissa Gorga
Melissa Gorga, wife of Joe Gorga, is one of the most stunning cast members you can watch on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The mother of three is the perfect example of supermom. Earlier we celebrated Joe as a superdad so it’s safe to say it was a perfect match and the kids are in good hands. The 36-year-old first appeared on the Housewives in 2011, where she represents her hometown as well. She was born in Toms River, New Jersey. You can watch the sexy mother and wife on the series, in the middle of lots of drama, and just like her hubby, she usually prefers taking the high road. Gorga has other things to take care of such as her family and her music career.
She released her single, “On Display” and continues to release a number of other tracks. It sure looks like she is keeping busy even if she is already occupied with her family, but it also looks like she keeps getting younger. So what is her secret to looking flawless no matter what she is juggling at the moment? The TV personality looks up to Jennifer Lopez, according to ABeautyLoft.com.
2 Mike Shouhed
You have seen him on Shahs of Sunset. The highly controversial Persian-American reality star is a real estate agent in Los Angeles. Mike Shouhed is seen balancing a new marriage life with Jessica Parido. Shouhed has been Iranian eye candy ever since the Bravo TV reality series started back in 2012. He always dressed well and kept himself nice and groomed. After all, the UCLA alumni is in the center of the high-end Los Angeles life, selling homes, so he has to know how to present himself.
In January of 2013, Shouhed announced he was going to pose for Playgirl. The photos came out later that year in April and his wife was there for moral support, according to the TV personality. During the show, you can watch Shouhed become the target of a few hook-up scandals, which he denies. We can see why the reality TV star would become a target. It’s not always easy being eye candy.
1 Nikki Bella
Our number one reality TV eye candy undoubtedly goes to Nikki Bella from E!'s Total Divas. The professional WWE wrestler has blown us away from the start of the reality TV series. With her go-getter personality and hard-earned physique, Bella is making us envy her more and more every episode. You have probably watched her wrestle before the show, but for those who are late and just tuning in, it is crazy to know what we’ve missed. The mixed Italian-Mexican was featured with her twin sister in Muscle and Fitness Magazine, where she got to dish out on her fitness regime as everyone was dying to know. Unfortunately, she takes her work very seriously including a training schedule and strict diet, hence the abs. With hard work, you can look that good and she’s definitely proving it. The athlete has been open about her struggles with her body image, especially when compared to her thinner sister. However, she has made it clear that you have to work with what you got.
