It's been a bad week for reality.
First off, "Big Brother" winner Adam Jasinski was charged with attempting to sell
thousands of oxycodone pills to a government witness in Massachusetts. The ninth-season winner confessed to buying the drugs with his $500,000 in prize money. He faces 20 years behind bars and a $1-million fine for attempting to distribute.
And the "balloon boy" saga continues to unfold as authorities investigate whether Richard and Mayumi Heene planned to release their homemade UFO and then claim their son Falcon was inside. Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden told the media that he believes the couple, who were previously featured on "Wife Swap," planned the hoax
two weeks in advance and he's recommending felony charges. Some believe they hoped the charade would help them launch a new reality show.
But these two are just the latest in the never-ending line of tabloid headlines generated by the ever-expanding members of the reality TV community. Take a look at some past standouts.
