Bachelor in Paradise

I admit to watching a few episodes of Bachelor in Paradise. It's purely for research purposes. Lol. I just don't understand Amanda's bad taste in men who moan loudly on camera when they kiss. And also, now I want to read Andi's book about their break-up. What is your reality show guilty pleasure?
