Oh, summer!

That magical time of year when the sun shines brighter, the days grow longer, and we all search for the perfect escape from reality. But who needs a tropical paradise or a road trip when you can indulge in the action and adventure of reality TV right in your very own living room?

Thanks to the folks at Paramount+, you can dive headfirst into a colorful wonderland of LGBTQ+ goodness, all while cozied up in your comfiest pajamas.

  • The Challenge: Serving drama with a side of athleticism, competitors battle it out through sweat and tears in MTV’s longest-running series, all for a chance to snatch that $1 million prize
  • Survivor: Watch as cunning contestants outwit, outplay, and outlast each other on a deserted island. It’s giving wilderness realness!
  • Big Brother: The ultimate game of voyeuristic intrigue, where housemates spill the tea, form alliances, and throw shade under the watchful eye of ever-present cameras.
  • Queen of the Universe: A cosmic explosion of glamour and talent, where drag queens from across the galaxy come to slay, snatch wigs, and prove they’re the reigning diva of the celestial stage.
  • The Amazing Race: A worldwide adventure where teams race through different countries, all while navigating the thrilling twists and turns of the ultimate global scavenger hunt.
