15 Most Hated Reality TV Villains
Reality TV thrives and succeeds off of drama, and fans definitely do not tune in to see level-headed people doing ordinary things. Show producers know that one of the best ways to keep a reality series going is to have someone become the villain, and has it ever worked! Through all of the most popular reality TV shows, there have been some notorious villains who have done everything from stir up drama to actually start physical fights, and while they may not be fan favorites, they certainly keep the entertainment going. Here are reality TV’s 15 most hated villains:
15. Johnny “Bananas” – The Challenge
Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio first rose to reality fame as one of the house members of The Real World: Key West, but became infamous for his numerous appearances on the spin-off series The Challenge. During his multiple appearances, Bananas had a lot of fans as well as many people who did not like him, but after his most recent appearance on The Challenge: Rivals 3 he solidified himself as one of the most villainous players in the game. He and Sarah Rice were paired up, and together were the top team who ended up winning, but at the very end, Bananas had more “points” than his partner and had the ability to either split the grand prize of $274,000, or keep it, and after all of Sarah’s hard work to help him win, he kept it all, crushing Sarah.
14. Dick Donato – Big Brother
Big Brother has seen a lot of conniving and manipulating contestants over its many seasons, but one of the worst without a doubt has been Dick Donato, who was the winner of Big Brother 8. He had the nickname “Evel Dick” before his appearance on the series, but it definitely rang true as the season went on and he became involved in the now infamous feud with his housemate Jen. While they both pushed each other’s buttons, when it came to a fight over cigarettes, things went much too far. After a lengthy back and forth between the two, Jen lunged forward and tried to take a cigarette from Dovato’s hands and he responded by burning her with the cigarette, and then continuing to do it multiple times. Getting in a fight is nothing new on the show, but physically burning someone and purposely doing it again and again is assault, and he didn’t even get kicked off!
