You've watched all the episodes of Bling Empire, now what? Luckily there are many other similar reality TV shows you could dive into afterward.

For those who haven’t yet seen the buzzy new show, the new Netflix reality series follows a group of wealthy Asian-Americans living in Los Angeles, California. Their display of wealth in television may be a shock to most of us, but it's what kept us glued to our seats.

Whether it was the jewelry war, Christine Chiu's couture, Anna Shay's penis pump or the shaman that tried to access Kelly Mi Li's "files" that drew you to Bling Empire, here are some reality shows you should add to your watchlist as we wait for the announcement of Season 2.
