World's Best Worst Show

Rumor has it there is some big event going down in San Diego that rhymes with Bomic Bon, but we won't be prepared to write about that for another four to five months. At the earliest.

It's no secret I don't watch a lot of television. I ambitiously set the DVR to record things, and then delete them months later without ever watching them. Why I have ten hours of TV slated to record every week and I only ever watch five minutes, I'll never know. I WILL eventually get around to watching the new Sherlock season. Swear.

I watch even less reality TV because I tend to lose my will to live. Toddlers and Tiaras, I'm looking in your direction. Judgingly.

FULL STOP. Applebee's is still in business?

Much like the end result to many of my Google searches, I don't know how I came across World's Worst Tenants in the channel listings, but I'm so glad I did. It is pretty epic. What's it about? Not really certain. Should you stop what you're doing and set the DVR now? Hellz yeah!

If you ever needed incentive to pay your rent, this is it.

If you live in California and you are doing some funky shit in your rental, these are the folks who are coming to fuck your world. Landlords pay these imposing-looking people to fix the problem when tenants aren't paying rent or otherwise causing issues. I'll be honest, I feel like the lamest person ever after watching a few episodes. When I've rented properties, I've never thought about running a strip club from my home, having illegal boxing matches, housing farm animals in my apartment, performing cosmetic surgery in my bedroom (Yep, you read that right.), or operating a pharmacy from the living room. Did I say this show was epic?!


At least one person is hogtied on every episode. Yessssss!

 World's Worst Tenants airs on SpikeTV. They have some full episodes online. Just click-y that link above after you leave a comment on the weirdest thing you've ever done, or your "friend" has done in your abode. We won't judge you. Much.

  1. I hope my daughter doesn't see this. It sounds like something she would love!

    And people actually ask me why I don't watch TV!

    1. I try to catch up on The Soup once a month & that shows me all the TV I need. I really have no idea how I found this show, but it's a fabulous train wreck.

    2. The fact that Joel McHale never talks about it is the reason I have never heard of it.

  2. This sounds awesomely bad. And I think I could definitely enjoy watching it. Any show where people make a mess of their lives makes me feel incrementally better about my own. (I know, me = terrible person.)

    I have slowly been cutting back on reality TV over the past few years. I quit the Bachelor/Bachelorette, and have finally stopped recording my last non-HGTV reality show: Teen Mom. I just can't take Amber anymore. (HGTV doesn't count as reality TV, though, right? I love Selling New York and Selling London!)

    Oh, I just noticed that you actually asked about the weirdest thing to ever happen in my house. Well... *scratches head* really I've got nothing. Risque, drunky pictures have been taken with a certain brooding cardboard cutout. That's about as crazy as it gets around here. Be jealous.

  3. I think I will love this show! I also loved A&E's Duck Dynasty. I love it.

    Weirdest thing....Well I thought it would be a great idea to paint one full wall of the family room with chalkboard paint, it's black, and chalk dust gets everywhere and that is were people (even adults) spend most of their visit. I also have a chicken coop (I live in the burbs) outside and the first winter I thought they would freeze, so I put Nanny and Zed in the basement. Ummmm, it was way stupid.

    1. Our master bath is painted with that stuff. Took a few layers of skin off when we were moving in. The paint was courtesy of the prior owners. Thanks a heap. Coincidentally, there were some indoor chickens in this show too. I guess all the cool kids are doing it.

  4. Hmmm... Mr. Snarky and his friends built a sound-proof band practice room in our basement without asking anyone for permission. Because he knew the answer would be "no." I just told him that he had to deal with it when the landlord (who lives very close) came storming over to investigate (which he did, and he did).

    Also, to the neighbors who sold us out when they saw a bunch of sweaty dudes carrying drywall into our rental home? This is why we can't be friends.

    1. Wait, your neighbors sold you out?!?! I don't remember that! You should have told me and I would have pooped on their porch for you.

  5. I seem to recall the ex-hubs being involved in a few indoor gardening projects... looooooooooooong time ago.

  6. I did the calculation once and I think I've lived in nearly 13 different apartments in my life. Guaranteed I was a pretty shitty tenant. As were my roommates. In fact, I know exactly what house that was. Broken bathroom sink for months, swarms of mice, porch full of garbage (I lived with 4 dudes, gimme a break). So yeah, what channel is this on? Because I want to watch it!

  7. Our property manager is prob one of the people on this show. She is over here daily making us feel like the world worst tenants because we had a car in our carport with expired tags. She harasses everyone and has had the cops called on her several times for trying to tow people for no reason. She'll randomly walk in our neighbors house in the middle of the night...last week he threw a show at her. Seriously, I know I just made it sound like we live in the ghetto but we don't. Maybe she should watch this show and she'll have a whole new perspective on the renters in our condo complex.

  8. Two wire-haired fox terriers didn't like to be left home alone all day. They chewed the trim/moulding around the front door off, so that it was flush with the wall. Then they attacked the sliding glass doors in the kitchen. They "dug up" the shag carpeting and destroyed the subflooring underneath.

    Needless to say, we moved out in the middle of the night!

    We tried to be better tenants at our next apartment. We bought a case of this aerosol spray stuff that was supposed to prevent them from chewing the woodwork. They rounded off the wooden edges of the bottom three stairs, and then went after the cans!

    That was the end of our apartment living. Next stop was a mobile home down on a farm, with horses looking in our windows every morning!

  9. I deduce that this show would be loved by Mr. LKW. He tends to migrate towards these types of programs.

  10. Hmmm my DVR still has the final season on Smallville on it - the last two seasons of Chuck AND the newest Sherlock. Do I win a prize? LOL!!! Hubby and I really need time to catch up.

  11. I've just installed iStripper, so I can watch the sexiest virtual strippers on my desktop.
