Who's the Best Reality Show Host?

Who's the Best Reality Show Host?

This week, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences decided that reality show hosts will now get their own Emmy category. Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, and Julie Chen better start getting those clip reels ready.

So, who's going to be the host (or hostess) with the most (or mostest) come September? Which of these hosts do you think is Emmy-worthy? There are many more reality and game show hosts than what I could fit in this poll, so if your favorites aren't listed, be sure to nominate them in the comments!

im sorry but ryan seacrest is a horrible host. he is mean, vicious, and isnt funny. i voted for tom bergeron because he is hysterical and he plays live tv up great.

Heidi is my fave. However, Heidi also executive produces, which means that it's her show. Jeff is a close second.

i also agree 100% with firedancyr7. Padma is wonderful. Smart, pretty, and classy and she KNOWS HER STUFF. She participates in the judging in an intelligent, well-informed and well-spoken way. She doesn't seem to make snide comments, she doesn't seem to "ham it up" for the camera and she seems genuine. I am admittedly new to watching Top Chef, but have loved it so far. I'm a bit burnt out on Idol and Tyra is unwatchable. I also like Heidi on PR. I haven't seen any of those other shows...

I don't care for 'reality' tv all that much but I got addicted to Big Brother 8 years ago, so Julie Chen got my vote, I don't watch any of the others.

Seacrest is a smart cookie under the cheese topping. He was very funny in Knocked Up, he played an ass in a very understated clever way. I think he's very good, and like the slightly mad gay banter he and Simon keep up on Idol - I really wish they'd reveal themselves as lovers.

Ryan Seacrest is a tool. I have no idea why anyone tolerates him.

If the question was Which is your favorite show, I'd say Project Runway, but the question is about the best host. I think Jeff Probst wins, but I imagine Ryan Seascreat will take the trophy home.

I like Ryan. He's perfect for American Idol. But I wish Padma Lakshmi was an option!

Ryan is a pro - he's quick on his feet, witty and the part that gets me the most is how he keeps a straight and serious face while talking to freaks auditioning on AI. Brilliant!

Ok I'm gonna be irritating and say I find Heidi REALLY ANNOYING. And so I don't understand why everyone loves Heidi so much. I picked Ryan anyway.

Out of that list, the only two shows I watch are Project Runway and ANTM. I picked Heidi, since Tyra can be really annoying at times.

Voting for Tim Gunn via Heidi. And I agree javsmav, about Cat Deely. Annoying. And the hubby finds her adorable. Go fig.
javsmav javsmav 9 years
Heidi Klum for sure. and of the shows I watch, Cat Deely is the WORST. I want to slit my throat every time she says "jthudgeees". I watch the show despite of her, but I really wish she would go away.

Phil Keoghan is amazing, he's handsome, sweet, and does his job well. Julie Chen (Big Brother) and Samantha Harris (Dancing with the Stars) are god-awful.
