The Bachelor Makes List of Top 20 Best Reality TV Shows Ever — Take That, Jersey Shore!

FYI, this list has been smoking something. Entertainment Weekly includes Flavor of Love and Jon & Kate Plus Eight on its list of Top 20 Best Reality TV Shows Ever, but snubs more positive shows like Dancing With the Stars and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (starring our beloved Bachelorette Jillian Harris!) Thankfully The Bachelor made the cut...but at number 11, considered less worthy than such gems as Jackass and The Osbournes. Surprisingly, Jersey Shore did NOT make the cut. (Waah!)

Here's what EW says about The Bachelor:

"Guy meets girl is the oldest concept in the book. But when it's guy meets 25 girls — some angry hysterics, some teary naïfs, all desperate for a diamond — that's a book we can read over and over again.

Best Season: 13. Single dad Jason Mesnick delivered the most dramatic moment ever when he ditched his fiancée for the runner-up."

Was that really the best season? If so, it should be because Jason & Molly are still married and actually in love. The Bachelorette actually has a decent success rate, too, but alas — no love.

In any case, here's EW's top 20 countdown.

20. Flavor of Love
19. Jon & Kate Plus Eight
18. The Apprentice
17. Deadliest Catch
16. Bands on the Run
15. Big Brother
14. The Hills
13. The Real Housewives
12. So You Think You Can Dance
11. The Bachelor
10. America's Next Top Model
9. Project Greenlight
8. Top Chef
7. Jackass
6. American Idol
5. The Real World
4. Project Runway
3. The Osbournes
2. The Amazing Race
1. Survivor

We expect to see Bachelor Pad on this list soon. It’s a newbie, but a goodie. Don't believe us? Tune into ABC on August 8!
