    The summer is the perfect time to stop being polite and start getting real (just ask Rihanna). And if you don't have it in you to truly express yourself, you can watch other people do it from the comfort of your own couch.

    So in the final installment of our seasonal series to determine the sexiest, most skin-tastic and sometimes guiltiest pleasures of the summer, we've turned to some of our fave reality-TV shows. And it's up to you to pick the hottest series the boob tube has to offer:

    Remember, each day we're revealing a new category in our Hot Summer Awards competition (tweet any stellar suggestions you have!), and then, on Saturday, we'll add the winners to our sizzlin' gallery for you to feast your eyes on.

    But back to the small screen.

    First up is the long-running ABC hit The Bachelorette. What started as one man dating two handfuls of hopeful gals in order to propose to (but rarely marry) the One spawned a follow-up that allows the chick to have control (this season follows blond cutie Emily Maynard on her quest for love). And though our televisions are stuffed to the gills with competitions these days, there's only one rose ceremony.

    If you prefer your small-screen smackdowns sans any lovey-dovey stuff, then your dial might be tuned to So You Think You Can Dance. The dancers are phenomenal, the choreography is fabulous and come on, who doesn't love a good Mary Murphy scream?! If you enjoy dance, then this is a summer show you should seriously be watching. The best part? The dancers get better every year.

    Like dancing…but prefer it when it comes after half a dozen shots of tequila and ends with someone flashing their hoo-ha on the dance floor? Then skip the formalities of SYTYCD and go straight for the Jersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWoww. Though this season focuses more on babies and marriage business than partying, the Jersey BFFs are sure to provide a wild ride nonetheless.

    Finally, there's our very own Keeping Up With the Kardashians. While the show has inspired many a spinoff (including the sisters taking nearly every city in America), this summer returns to the original hit: watching Kim, Khloé, Kourtney do their thang alongside mama Kris, Bruce Jenner and the rest of the gang. Oh, and this season brings a very special guest: Kanye West! Let the battle for best dressed BF begin, right Scott Disick?!

    So it's time for you to weigh in and tell us which reality-TV series dominates the boob tube. Sound off below!
