Dating reality shows now are all about high drama and lots of tears. By far one of the most popular formats for the best dating reality shows is that of ABC's .

One of the earliest dating reality shows was , a show that featured one bachelorette grilling a trio of prospective suitors. The people looking for dates could hear the contestants' answers to their questions, but they couldn't *see* them.

“My kids don’t even ever consider me having fun,” Barbara says in one clip from the show.

“So I’d like to have a little more fun in my life before, you know, I die.” “I’m going to have Jace soon full-time so she needs someone to talk to because she’s going to talk to herself in the mirror,” Jenelle says in the clip above.
