I voted for Grand Design, though the show name is actually Grand Designs - close enough for meh.
If you like GBBO, there are also sewing and pottery versions, I think called the GB sewing bee and GB pottery throw down. Very similar formats and I think just as entertaining. There are also Australian and Canadian versions of the Bake Off that can sometimes be as good as the British version, but not always.
@ahacksaw Doh! Can’t believe I forgot Bargain Hunt and Antiques Road Trip. Both good competition shows if you like antiques at all. There are also celebrity versions, though I almost never recognize the “celebrities.”
i’ve never heard of any of these (except GBBO which i have no interest in). i tried to think of one but the closest i came was james may: our man in japan. not exactly reality tv but, somewhat real, and he’s british (even if it was produced for amazon), and i very much enjoyed it.
I haven’t seen any mention of British game shows yet, but I don’t know if those would technically be considered reality TV. There are several great shows that really require knowledge, much different than most seemingly dumbed down American game shows, Jeopardy excluded. Countdown and Only Connect are great, and regularly make me feel both ignorant and unintelligent. Oh, and Mastermind, where it’s common for me to know none of the answers.
@RiotDemon Okay we actaully hate her and her trying to make ‘Ding Dong’ a thing. She needs to stop. I have the same feelings about Carla (whatever her last name is) that Food Network is now trying to add as a judge to everything and her ‘Duuuuuude’ comment. Please Food Network, stop with Carla.
