Top Reality TV Moments of 2010
'The Hills' Comes to an End
In July, after six drama-filled seasons of hot hookups and over-the-top breakups, MTV's "The Hills" came to an end. The end shocked fans when the camera panned to reveal Kristin Cavallari saying goodbye to Brody Jenner, not on the streets of Los Angeles, but instead on a Hollywood backlot — ultimately poking fun at people over the years trying to figure whether or not the show was real.

'Amazing Race' Contestant Smacked by Watermelon
Ouch! There was a major stunt mishap on Season 17 of "The Amazing Race" when Brook and Claire (Home Shopping TV hosts) launched watermelons from a giant slingshot. A watermelon hit Claire smack in the face and yet Brook suggested, "You have to finish!"

'NJ Housewives': The Claws Are Out
The women of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" hadn't been under the same roof in over a year — until the infamous reunion special! Danielle, Theresa, Jacqueline and Caroline aired out all their dirty laundry in the 'Housewives' reunion — and things got pretty ugly. The most noteworthy moment? When Teresa went ballistic, screamed at Danielle and even pushed host Andy Cohen! Check out the video!
'Idol' Says Goodbye to Simon!
The "American Idol" two-hour finale in May was epic! Fellow "American Idol" judges Randy Jackson, Ellen DeGeneres, Kara DioGuardi, plus the Season 9 finalists and a host of special guests (including Paula Abdul), said so long to Simon Cowell. Watch their heartfelt goodbyes!
Kate Gosselin Dances (Sort of) on 'DWTS'
Reality TV mom Kate Gosselin has no problem juggling eight kids and a camera in her face 24-7. Asking her to dance on "Dancing with the Stars," however, was another story. Watching Kate Gosselin's attempt to perform a pasadoble to Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" on "Dancing with the Stars," was nothing short of painful. The negative remarks from the judges flooded in and the Twitterverse went wild. The only good thing to come from this was 1) a 'Top Reality TV Show Moment of the Year' and 2) hilarious spoofs from comedians like Jimmy Fallon.
Snooki and Angelina Throw Down
Season two of "Jersey Shore" did not disappoint with the amount of fist pumps, hot bod ads and spray tans. The tension between Snooki and Angelina blew up when Vinny, sloppy seconds, and some guy named Alex all resulted in the Girl Fight Reality TV Show Moment of the Year. After a brawl of slaps, punches and rolling around on the floor, Angelina told her roommates how she really felt about them and left the show (again). Check out the full episode here!
Seth Melts Down on 'Top Chef Just Desserts'
Possibly the best quote from reality TV this year came from pasty chef Seth of "Top Chef Just Desserts." Seth completely broke down in the second episode after an ice cream plating issue in the Quick Fire Challenge and later explained to "Top Chef Masters" participant and judge Elizabeth Faulkner, "The Red Hots are for my mommy!"
Bethenny Gets Married!
Bravo's "Bethenny Getting Married?" did not end in a question mark. Bethenny and Jason tied the knot in a jaw-droppingly gorgeous and romantic ceremony that left no reality TV show fan with a dry eye.
'Project Runway': Was the Wrong Designer Auf'd?
Picking a winner for Season 8 "Project Runway" was described by Heidi Klum as one of the toughest decisions the judges have ever had to make. The fierce fashion battle was between designers Mondo Guerra, Andy South and Gretchen Jones. In the end, the judges named Gretchen the winner, who Missy Schwartz of EW called "the lousiest winner in the show's history." "Project Runway" fans are still debating if the right contestant won.
