19 Reality TV Stars Everyone Loves to Hate

Rivalries, love triangles, cat fights, back-stabbing, name-calling, and full-on brawls — reality TV thrives on chaos. Often those at the very center of the drama emerge as the most recognizable names of their respective series. In some cases, playing the villain has allowed these reality TV stars to earn spin-off series, launch clothing lines, and land endorsement deals — all because of how amusing or entertaining viewers found their bad behavior. 


In other cases, their antics became so unforgivable they essentially lost whatever fans they'd gained. Whatever their fate, these reality TV stars will forever be synonymous with scandal, treachery, and rancor. From The Apprentice's Omarosa to The Real World's Puck, check out some of reality TV's most notorious and unforgettable villains.
