Reality television shows are a great way to escape from our daily lives. These shows entertain us in a variety of genres, such as romance, adventure, and others.
Among the numerous fantastic reality series on offer today, the ones that put love relationships on the line are the most compelling to watch. In this regard, 90 Day Fiancé is the gold standard to beat.
90 Day Fiancé follows international couples as they travel to the United States to make important life decisions in front of cameras. Foreigners who come to the United States on a special 90-day fiancé visa, also known as the K-1 visa, must marry their spouses within those 90 days or leave their long-distance love behind.
In order to be with their partners in matrimony, couples must overcome cultural barriers, family and friend barriers, and language difficulties.
With each new episode and season, the show is becoming something of a phenomenon, with significant increases in viewing. It has even surpassed the ever-present news and sports as the most-watched show on television.
But what do we do in the time between the seasons of this amazing show? So, here are some alternatives.
Showtime Documentary Couples Therapy
People are often hesitant to discuss their relationship problems in public. They wish to resolve the issues in private.
Couples Therapy, on the other hand, is a show that chronicles couples’ problems in front of the camera. The show is described as “genuine documentary filmmaking,” and it is unlike any other Showtime reality show.
The show focuses on the real issues that couples face in their relationships, as well as their weekly therapy sessions. Dr. Orna Guralnik works with these couples to help them be honest with themselves and each other in order to form a strong bond.
Couples Therapy is a great show to watch at home if you want to learn about the inner workings of a relationship and the arduous experiences of couples therapy. The show’s second season is now on the air.
Catfish The TV Show
Relationships formed online are rarely replicated in person. That is the basic premise of MTV’s Catfish. The documentary film Catfish served as the inspiration for Catfish: The TV Show. The story revolves around Nev Schulman, whose brother and a friend record all of his interactions with a woman he meets online and falls in love with.
As the story progresses, Schulman realizes he has been catfished. As a result, he and his colleagues decided to develop a TV show based on the same concept. Schulman, Max Joseph, and, more recently, Kamie Crawford appear on the show to help people who have fallen in love with someone online in real life, allowing them to test their relationships and the identities of their loves.
The first season of the show aired in 2012, and seven more seasons have since been produced. The eighth and final season of the show is entirely virtual, and it’s fascinating to see how it works without the usual traveling and probing for the truth.
Aside from that, the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off series — 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way — are also fantastic options if you want to get hooked on something about relationships.
Married At First Sight
Most of us can’t even fathom being in a relationship, let alone marrying someone we’ve never met. But that is precisely the premise of Channel 4’s social experiment of a show, Married At First Sight! The show’s goal is to place strangers in marriage relationships to see how long they can last.
The plan is simple: find people who want to marry but don’t tell them who they’ll marry. Relationship experts select partners for each of these prospects with great care — and no less through science.
We follow a group of couples who are assigned to work on their relationships after meeting for the first time at their wedding site. The exciting part is seeing which of the scientifically chosen couples survive and which marriages fail. The show, which premiered in 2014, has so far aired seven seasons.
