Simple Life 1,2 and 3
There was one a while back for teenagers called Moolah Beach. The challenges looked really fun.
The Noggin Channel has their "Boys V. Girls" reality series. The cast members aren't really kids, more like 16 year-olds. I think the show is targeted to much younger viewers though.
Well, I've heard that there was this show called Scary camp (Or something else). There was like some ghost story haunting a certain camp, so one team of boys and another of girls try to figure out what happened, and release the soul of the ghost haunting the camp.
I think the girls won.
I think it was made sometime in 2000.

I SERIOUSLY hope that reality shows for kids is not something that ever becomes a trend, other than the sparse semi-reality ones mentioned here. Children have a hard enough time growing up these days without their minds being clouded by what passes for 'reality' on 'reality' shows. There are a lot of adults who truly believe that what happens on reality shows is the way real life actually is for people, so it would be no stretch of the imagination at all for kids -- who's minds are much more malleable -- to fall into that same misguided trap. Kids are already subject to so much influence from peers, magazines, movies, tv shows, VR games, etc... I'd hate to see kids start growing up with their behaviour influenced by what they might see on 'reality tv'. Let them experience and develop a real life and real life behaviour of their own before shoving peer group 'reality shows' down their throats and confusing them about behavioural norms.
I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.
Kid Nation... a sad day for society when the exploitation of children becomes acceptable entertainment for television viewers.

I agree. I've seen Endurance and it disturbs me to see kids form alliances, publicly insult each other and become so competitive. It's like high shool/jr. high, but magnified and re-aired in repeats.Originally Posted by Nemeses

Favorite Reality Tv Quote Ever:
"You have to do it. You have to accomplish your dreams." - Charla, The Amazing Race 5
There have been a couple in the UK - though it's kid bordering on adult.
The most famous is Brat Camp (another C4 show I believe ABC are making a US version of!) in which six or seven UK brats - around 15-18 - are sent to a real-life "Brat Camp" in the middle of Utah - where they will remain until they learn to behave.
The other main one is "That'll Teach 'Em" in which a mix of UK school children attend a 1950's Grammer school (2nd series 1960's Secondary Modern) for a month just after taking their exams - so there all 16.
We also had Teen Big Brother - but all housemates in that were 18.
Another one I've just remembered - though it didn't last long - is "Trust Me - I'm a Teenager" again on C4. IIRC three teenagers observe a family for a week or so. The teenagers then come up with a list of rules and activities Wife Swap style which the family must live by in an effort to improve their life.
Their have a quite a few actually. They even have some kids decorating rooms i think on nbc early mornings?
Blow a kiss, fire a gun, we need someone to lean on
There is an old one called "Hidden Temple" that reruns on Noggin, I think it was on Nick first. Sort of an endurance game show thing.
Boys vs Girls Montana. Trading Spaces Boys vs Girls. Nick also has a family game show thing.
