The Best Reality TV Stars of 2013 (So Far)

Scott Disick (Keeping Up With the Kardashians, E!)

Of course, a list of the year's best reality stars of the year would not be complete without Lord Disick himself. Seriously, watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians for the actual Kardashians is like putting ketchup on prime ribs: Stop it right now, you’re doing it wrong. The real reason you should be watching the series is that guy right up there.

Though he’s been featured as Kourtney Kardashian’s significant other for the entirety of the series and its numerous spin-offs, somehow Scott manages to retain his likability while exhibiting behavior as preposterous as that of the family he associates himself with. Last year, he had no problem parading around London with a gaudy Henry VIII-esque fur coat and a Chuck Bass-inspired cane while proclaiming that he’s now to be called “Lord Disick"; this year he was featured front and center in a promo for Kanye West’s new album, Yeezus, portraying American Psycho character Patrick Bateman and killing Kim Kardashian’s best friend, Jonathan, with an axe.

Despite all this, though, Disick is still different from his Kardashian co-stars for one simple reason: He recognizes how ridiculous they all really are, and he vocalizes it, often.  By doing this, Scott is the embodiment of most viewers, namely the ones who can’t fathom why this is E!’s most popular program yet still can’t stop watching for reasons unknown. Who would have thought Keeping Up with the Kardashians could be so philosophical?
