When it comes to folks' favorite reality TV show, chances are people are either pretty shameless ("on Mondays, I'm all about drinking the wine and watching The Bachelorette!") or secretly bingeing (Long Island Medium, anyone?). Ever wonder why that one series just seems to always be entertaining? Always looking for the next reality obsession? Perhaps it's time to consider the sun sign (aka the zodiac). 

More from CafeMom: 

The zodiac can tell us so many things about our personalities; what kind of job we'll have, who our friends will be, and even what our deepest desires are. Even the most stubborn Taurus will have to agree that the zodiac sometimes gets things really right. In fact, the zodiac might be so keyed into our personalities that it can even tell us which TV shows we should be watching! That's right, the zodiac knows what we should be binge watching! Sure it's not an exact science, but wouldn't it be fun to know which shows are perfect for a Gemini, Aquarius, or Leo? Well, let us share the 411 -- we found the perfect zodiac and TV pairings. Trust.

Discover here which reality show one is bound to be a fan of (or probably already tunes into regularly), based on zodiac sign.

  • Aries (March 21–April 19): American Ninja Warrior


    As the very first (you love hearing that, don't you?) sign of the whole zodiac, you're naturally competitive and probably a bit athletic or at least into sports, Aries. So, a really aggressive competition show like American Ninja Warrior is right up your alley.

  • Aries (March 21–April 19): The Voice


    But if by chance sports aren't their thing, another hotly contested competition show Aries will dig big-time? Ratings leader The Voice, obviously!

  • Taurus (April 20-May 20): Little People, Big World


    As a heartfelt, Venus-ruled Taurus, you love chilling at home and spending quality time with loved ones. No doubt you'd adore the givin'-you-all-the-feels-and-fuzzies TLC show Little People, Big World. BTW, Zach, wife Tori, and baby Jackson are all Taureans!

  • Gemini (May 21-June 20): Fixer Upper


    If you're a Gemini, an air sign represented by twins, chances are you're a super-communicator and pretty detail-oriented. You like things neat, tidy, and in their place, and you also have a pretty sweet sense of style! For that reason, you'd love watching Chip and Joanna Gaines give a variety of homes on-point makeovers on the HGTV reality show.

  • Cancer (June 21-July 22): Counting On


    As a maternal, moon-ruled water sign, you're innately sentimental and family-oriented. You can likely relate to the Duggars, stars of Counting On and 19 and Counting, at least in regards to how they look out for one another -- and revel in all the joys and challenges of having a huge clan!

  • Cancer (June 21-July 22): Chopped


    As much as you Cancers love family, you also adore food -- preparing it, baking it, cooking it, and most of all, eating it! Really, you can get down with any show on the Food Network, but Chopped is definitely an on-point pick, given that you're also a cardinal (the go-getter of each element: water, fire, air, earth) sign.

  • Leo (July 23-August 22): Million Dollar Listing


    In the '80s, there was Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous, and in 2017, there's Million Dollar Listing. The Bravo franchise was practically made for you fiery, luxury-loving Leos who consider yourselves royalty and love all of the finer things in life. 

  • Leo (July 23-August 22): World of Dance


    The new NBC reality show World of Dance brings the flash and drama -- something naturally theatrical Leos can always get behind. BTW, producer and judge JLo is a fellow lioness!

  • Virgo (August 23-September 22): Flipping Out


    As a practical earth sign who's likely very detail-oriented, organized, and fastidious, you may very well empathize with Jeff Lewis, the, err, highly particular real estate speculator at the center of Bravo's Flipping Out.

  • Libra (September 23-October 22): The Bachelorette


    Ruled by the planet of love (Venus), Libra, you're a proud romantic who's all about elaborate date nights, heartfelt proposals, moonlight kisses, and yes, definitely roses! ABC's The Bachelorette, the reality show that trades in all romantic things (and then some), is 100 percent your jam.

  • Libra (September 23-October 22): Say Yes to the Dress


    Another given for romantic, beauty-loving Libras: the style- and wedding detail–replete TLC classic Say Yes to the Dress, obvi.

  • Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Keeping Up With the Kardashians


    You're charismatic, sensual, powerful, and dramatic by nature, Scorpio, so you can undoubtedly identify with various personalities on the long-running E! hit Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Really, for no other reason than the fact that matriarch Kris Jenner and her ex Caitlyn are both Scorpios, too! (Kim's Mercury -- representing the way she communicates -- is in Scorpio, too.)

  • Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Teen Mom


    As a fire sign, symbolized by the archer, you're dynamic, opinionated, and entertaining, Sagittarius. And let's not forget that you have a big heart, too. No doubt you'd totally fall for the fiery casts of MTV's Teen Mom (either OG or 2).

  • Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Shark Tank


    Let's not beat around the bush, Cap. You're kind of ... a workaholic. But you can't help that you're a pragmatic earth sign, ruled by taskmaster Saturn and the tenth house in astrology, which has to do with all things professional recognition and career. For this reason, you'd totally love the wheelin' and dealin' of entrepreneurial reality show Shark Tank on ABC.

  • Aquarius (January 20-February 18): MythBusters: The Search


    As a social, inventive air sign, ruled by revolution-loving Uranus, you probably consider the the Science Channel default TV. The channel's new reality show, MythBusters: The Search, strikes the perfectly quirky, nerdy vibe to entertain your always-running, innovative brain.

  • Pisces (February 19-March 20): Long Island Medium


    As a naturally empathetic and emotional water sign -- the very last in the zodiac, and therefore, perhaps the most evolved -- you're deeply spiritual and probably also a bit psychic, Pisces! Maybe that's why you'd enjoy watching Theresa Caputo connect with the other side on TLC's Long Island Medium.
