The last few decades have been instrumental in the rise of reality television. And with reality TV comes the increasing normalcy of getting sloshed in front of millions of viewers. This has led to many memorable moments that have helped to define our favorite guilty pleasure shows. Check out our list of the most ridiculous booze-fueled moments.
7. Chad Goes on a Rage-Filled Drunken Rant, Bachelor in Paradise
Bachelor fans everywhere remember Chad as the show’s latest villain, though he may also be the craziest contestant of all time. After being eliminated on his season of The Bachelorette, Chad was invited back to appear on the show’s spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise. On the first night, an inebriated Chad began slurring all kinds of insults and spewing offensive language. He topped off his rant by saying, “I’ll murder everyone here. I’ll kill your children and murder your family. Dolla, dolla bills, yo.” That said, he was kicked off the show the next morning but not until after he soiled himself. What a classy dude.
6. Kim Kardashian Throws Up on Camera, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami
As one of many celebrity teetotalers, Kim being on this list comes as a surprise. Although the party girl has endorsed alcohol brands like Midori in the past, she doesn’t actually drink the stuff too often. During an episode of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Kim feels compelled to join her sisters in toasting with some dessert wine. This leads to her ordering copious amounts of shots and fruity cocktails, a rare move for her. After some table dancing at the bar, the reality star gets dragged home by her sisters and throws up several times in the toilet. Did we mention she had an important photo shoot the next morning? Oops.
5. Heather gets a Bret Michaels tattoo, Rock of Love
One of VH1’s most trashy reality offerings, Rock of Love was a dating show featuring 20-plus women vying for the coveted role as Poison frontrunner Bret Michaels’ girlfriend. Although drunken debauchery was nothing out of the ordinary for the cast, contestant Heather Chadwell took it to a new level. After sharing a few drinks with Michaels, Heather made the decision to get his name tattooed on the back of her neck—her first tattoo ever! The worst part? She ended up getting eliminated soon after. Moral of the story: Don’t drink and ink!
4. Scott Disick Shoves $100 in Waiter’s Mouth, Keeping Up With the Kardashians
Scott Disick is no stranger to being drunk on TV. The Kardashian baby daddy has been documented many times drinking too much and embarrassing himself, but this moment certainly takes the cake. At a Kardashian family gathering, Disick was beginning to show warning signs of intoxication, so matriarch Kris Jenner asked the waiter to cut him off. When Disick’s next drink order was refused, he tried to bribe the waiter with $100, which he then proceeded to shove down the waiter’s mouth. Klassy.
3. Snooki Gets Arrested, Jersey Shore
One of the most notoriously lowbrow reality shows of all time, Jersey Shore was a goldmine for wild, drunken scenes. The most memorable cast member, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, became famous for her love of pickles and for getting punched in the face. In a later season, Snooki overindulges and goes on a drunken tirade against police officers trying to help her off the beach. As a result, she gets arrested for disorderly conduct and famously cries “I’m a fucking good person!” as she’s being put in handcuffs. Classic Snooki, America’s sweetheart.
2. Teresa Giudice Flips a Table, Real Housewives of New Jersey
Let’s be honest: We could fill this whole list with just Real Housewives moments. But here’s the best of the bunch: the famous table flip. Teresa Giudice made a name for herself after sipping one too many glasses of wine and getting angry at a fellow Housewife for “lying” to her. She then proceeds to call her some pretty nasty names and attempts to flip the table at which they’re eating. Savage.
1. Verne Troyer Urinates on the Floor, The Surreal Life
The Surreal Life brought together many interesting “celebrity” characters during its six seasons. Aside from spawning countless spinoff shows (Flavor of Love, My Fair Brady, etc.), the show also accomplished getting plenty of D-listers plastered. The craziest moment of all involved Verne Troyer, best known for portraying Mini-Me in Austin Powers. Troyer had a little too much to drink and could barely keep his head up. To help him out, some fellow contestants brought him to bed, but he was later driving around the house on his mobilized scooter, naked. Troyer then drove into a corner and urinated on the mansion carpet. That’s what we call good TV.
