Remember the old days of MTV? Here is a list of the most fun shows. Growing up, I watched MTV so much; it was a thing! I used to watch so many shows like MADE and NEXT. Here are a few for you 1990s teens lets see if you remember them!
1. Room Raiders 2003–2009
Rather than meeting or seeing any of the three singles (any personal photographs of the contestant are removed from the room or covered with a happy face sticker), she chooses one of them on a date based on the contents of their rooms.
While their rooms are being inspected, the three finalists sit in a vehicle and observe and comment. After the raider has completed each chamber, the three contestants attack the raider’s chamber. Finally, the raider confronts the three rivals and selects one of them.
2. Pimp My Ride (2004- 2007)
Pimp My Ride is a TV show produced by MTV and hosted by rapper Xzibit. Each episode consists of taking one car in poor condition, restoring it, and customizing it. The original American version was hosted by rapper Xzibit (one episode featured guest hosts Chamillionaire and Don Omar).
3. A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila (2007-2008)
A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila is a reality television dating game program in the United States similar to The Bachelor. It first aired on MTV on October 9, 2007, and starred Tila Tequila. The show is a bisexual reality dating show in which 16 hetero male competitors and 16 lesbian-identified female candidates live in Tequila’s home and compete for her attention and affection.

For the rest of the series, the male and female candidates shared the same house.

All arrangements were produced by Ish Entertainment (a subsidiary of Lionsgate Television) and in association with the original network on which they aired.
5. Made (2002 – Present)
MTV’s MADE is a self-improvement reality television series broadcast on MTV. The series follows teens who have a goal and want to be “made” into singers, athletes, dancers, skateboarders, etc. The teens are joined by a “Made Coach,” an expert in their chosen field, trying to help them attain their goals over several weeks. Made documents the process the teens undergo to achieve their goals. (WIKI)
Dismissed is a reality television show on MTV that premiered in 2001. One person simultaneously takes two others on a date. Each of the daters chooses a place to go (a total of 2 sites), and the person running the date dismisses the person they like the least. Each of the competing daters also has a time-out card. The card allowed the competitor twenty minutes alone with their date when used. (WIKI)
