My Crazy Obsession was a reality show that aired on TLC from 2012 to 2013. The show followed individuals with eccentric and often unusual obsessions, ranging from collecting teddy bears to living life as a real-life mermaid. Each episode explored the lives of these individuals and the lengths they go to in order to indulge in their obsessions.

Scott Victor Nelson, one of the most memorable subjects on the show, had a fascination with mannequins. He had amassed a collection of over 50 mannequins, which he kept in his home and dressed up in various outfits every day. Scott spoke to his mannequins as if they were real people and even gave them unique personalities. He would take them on trips to the mall and grocery store, often drawing stares and questions from onlookers.

Doug Scroggins III, another notable subject, had an obsession with his hair. He spent millions of dollars over the years perfecting his hair care routine, which included daily blowouts, hair extensions, and hair-care products from around the world. His hair was his pride and joy, and he would go to extreme lengths to make sure it looked perfect at all times. He even refused to let anyone else touch his hair, except for his hairdresser.

Bronte D'Acquisto was a young woman who had a passion for dressing up as a mermaid. She would wear a mermaid tail and perform underwater, both in a pool and in the ocean. Bronte would spend hours creating intricate mermaid costumes and accessories, often using shells and jewels to embellish her outfits. She even had a mermaid-themed room in her house, complete with a seaweed-covered bed and ocean-inspired decor.

Other subjects on the show included a woman who collected over 5000 Barbie dolls, a man who had a fetish for balloons, and a woman who was obsessed with her pet chickens. The show explored the psychology behind these obsessions and the impact they had on the individual's everyday lives. Many of the subjects on the show spoke about how their obsessions had helped them cope with traumatic experiences or deal with mental health issues.

My Crazy Obsession was praised for its empathetic portrayal of individuals with unusual obsessions. The show never made fun of or ridiculed its subjects, instead exploring the complex emotions that drove them to indulge in their passions. The show was also known for its humorous moments, such as when Scott Victor Nelson tried to teach his mannequins to dance or when Doug Scroggins III hired a team of professionals to help him maintain his hair.

Overall, My Crazy Obsession was a unique and interesting reality show that provided an inside look at the lives of individuals with unusual hobbies and interests. While the show only aired for two seasons, it remains a cult favorite among fans of reality TV.

My Crazy Obsession is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (19 episodes). The series first aired on March 7, 2012.
