Behold, the 23 biggest douchebags on reality TV, which is really saying something as this is a genre that has elevated the d-bag to a new echelon.
These days, the douche thrives like no other across so many networks and shows ... in order to stand out, you have to really raise (lower?) your game.
Bottom line: This is the cream of the crop, people ...
Jon Gosselin is one of the most frequent results if you run a Google image search on "reality TV douchebag." True story.
Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor is perhaps the biggest d-bag on reality TV. It's a bold statement, but he continues to lower the bar on a weekly basis.
Patti Stanger, Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker, sets up rich d-bags on dates for a living, yet none of the relationships actually work out, so that's awesome. In summation, she's bad at her job and her entire show seems more like a vanity project for her massive ego, so she makes the list.
Spencer Pratt is, in a sense, the man all fame-grubbing reality TV douchebags of today are measured against. A trailblazing antagonist on The Hills, Pratt redefined the role of reality TV villain, eventually wearing out his welcome and blowing through $10 million with his constant scheming and publicity whoring before exiling himself to his parents' guest house with wife Heidi Montag.
We thoroughly enjoyed Scott Disick's comic relief on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, but Lord D. exhibits some major d-bag qualities and then some. When you start choosing benders over your own family, that's a tad much.
Donald Trump of The Apprentice fame is pretty much the personification of the term ... and that was before he began his epic quest for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. (UPDATE: He won.)
