Reality TV Shows That Make You Cry

Buzz In: What Reality Show Makes You Tear Up?

Prepare for the waterworks: ABC debuts its newest show, Secret Millionaire tonight, and it's sure to be a sob fest. Based on the UK series, the episodes follow millionaires who go undercover and volunteer in impoverished areas. After a week or so, they reveal their true identities and gift the hard up locals with thousands of dollars. Here's a promo:

It falls in a similar vein as feel-good program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and even though I don't watch Extreme Makeover regularly, I'm always a sucker for it when I do. There's something about the big reveal, as the families see their new homes, which just gets to me. Undercover Boss is also pretty effective; I still remember getting goose bumps when it first premiered. Maybe I'm more sappy than most, but tell me what reality shows move you?

Ditto with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.And Josette! I thought I was the only one! lol. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in shedding a tear or two when watching American Idol. The auditions always get to me. Heh.

I've shed many a tear watching "The Locator" from the WE Channel.

This is the first time I've watched "Secret Millionaire"; seems like a "nice" show and, yes, it starts out with sob stories. However, Miss Thing (Dani) is a damn millionaire and the one IMPORTANT charity, the food kitchen, she can only spare to give a lousy $20,000!?!?! The homeless/needy people they are feeding are in more need of the cash than some kids playing music (yes, music is important, but FOOD IS MORE NECESSARY!). If Dani is so concerned about helping out and had so much empathy about everyone, why didn't she shell out $100,000 to the two old ladies at the food kitchen? What a load of crap!!!

I always cry when I watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition, although I rarely watch it. Believe it or not, American Idol makes me tear up whenever one of those immensely talented people gives a moving performance and sings their heart out.
