There’s just something about binge-watching reality television that is so captivating. There are also so many different kinds of shows to binge on, so there really is something for everyone.

You could get hooked on a dating show, a game show, a cooking show, and so much more. Even though reality television can sometimes be seen as mindless entertainment, it can be packed with funny, dramatic, and heartfelt moments that can be beautiful to watch.

Some people even say that watching reality television for a whole afternoon is their guilty pleasure, but I don’t think it’s something to feel guilty about at all.

There are so many reality shows featuring regular and relatable people that it can make you feel more connected to humanity. I don’t know about you, but when I watch reality shows I always imagine being a contestant and it provides a pleasant escape from everyday life.

When I am watching a dating show, I always imagine being on the show and who I would couple up with and sometimes it even gives me more insight into my own love life.

When I am watching a game show, I always picture how I would use my skills to win the game and it gives me a stronger sense of my strengths and how to utilize them to my advantage.

There is a lot to benefit from when watching relatable people in these televised experiences actively and competitively going after what they want.

See, there is nothing you should feel guilty about if you are watching something that is enjoyable and provides you with inspiration and self-reflection.

So don’t feel guilty when you are also 20 hours into a crazy dating show. To guide you in the right direction, here is my recommendation of what reality television show you should watch based on your zodiac sign:

ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Ex on the Beach

Any Aries will love Ex on the Beach, the dating show where the contestant's ex-boyfriend or girlfriend randomly shows up to the house to stir up some drama. It is perfect for an Aries to watch because you are fierce and fiery, like most of the contestants on the show.

The contestants also struggle throughout with trying to stay independent while evaluating their past relationships and experiences. However, they also tend to make impulsive decisions and are open to jumping into relationships.

As an Aries, you will be able to connect because you are usually independent and sometimes impulsive. The drama and fighting in the show are also heavily entertaining and you are sure to become invested early on.
