|This is me.|
2020 was a terrible year and 2021 was better but still immensely stressful. During the year I didn't want to watch too many television shows that were stressful or required a ton of my attention. I did view some programs that were like that, but I really dug the stuff that served as mental junk food. I loved just chilling with trashy reality television that I could watch weekly on cable shows or stream on various platforms. When life is stressful and hard sometimes you just need a dose of, "The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise," or a baking show with a detective theme, maybe some people who are 600 pounds losing weight, all of that stuff. I was eager to decompress with, "Big Brother," as opposed to watching an intense drama or thriller-type program. It just was pleasant to have something related to, "90 Day Fiance," and its myriad spin-offs sometimes as opposed to something that had me on the edge of my seat when I just wanted to lay back on the couch.
