The most popular reality TV stories and shows of 2007

What in reality TV did people care most about in 2007? Nudity, death, and break-ups, and Big Brother 8, The Amazing Race 11, and I Love New York 2–at least according to the most popular stories and pages on reality blurred.

Because the web exists thanks to porn, stories related to naked reality stars lead the list, as people searching for their fix end up on stories that link to or discuss nudity. But people were also interested in reality show cast member deaths and break-ups among reality show cast members.

Here are the most-popular stories and shows from this past year. These don’t necessarily reflect ratings, because not everyone who watches TV goes online to obsess over their favorite or least-favorite reality show stars. And of course, these lists only represent visitors to reality blurred over the past 361 days.
