Just when you think it can't get any worse than Kenya Moore going off on Porsha Williams, along comes Juan Pablo Galavis.
And then just when you think the lowest rung of the reality TV ladder has been reached due to the outright racism of the Big Brother 15 cast, along comes Teresa Giudice actually going to jail due to financial fraud.
And then just when you're willing to write these examples off as exceptions and embrace reality television again, along comes Josh Duggar confessing to sexual molestation and... well...
... it doesn't get any more grotesque than that.
Here is a look at 27 scandals that have absolutely rocked the world of reality television.

That title says it all, doesn't it? In the spring of 2015, Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame apologized for molesting multiple young girls when he was a teenager.
TLC Cancels Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Give the network credit. It pulled the plug as soon as rumors spread of June Shannon dating her daughter's former molester. EWWWWW!
Big Brother 15
Just the entire season, really. These homophobic and racist cast members caused us to lose faith in pretty much all of humanity.
Everyone Hates Juan Pablo Galavis
Juan Pablo Galavis was asked about a potentially gay Bachelor and responded: "I respect [gay people], but I honestly don't think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV." He then went out and sounded like an even bigger moron during the actual season.
Duck Dynasty Debate
Phil Robertson also got in trouble for making homophobic remarks to GQ. He then issued a statement that read: "My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and mean are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me."
Jon and Kate Plus HATE
Jon and Kate Plus 8 was once a beloved show on TLC. Until it was revealed that Jon and Kate actually hated each other and were kind of terrible people.
