The winners of Reality Tea‘s first annual Readers’ Choice Awards were announced throughout the day Friday. There were a few surprises!
I, for one, was shocked to see Teresa Giudice win favorite Real Housewives of New Jersey star and Jill Zarin win former Real Housewives star you wish would return. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to learn Caroline Stanbury beat out Jim Marchese as the breakout reality TV star of 2014.
In case you missed a few (or all) of the winner announcements, check out the complete winners list below. You can click on each category to see the runners up. Don’t forget to cast your vote in the final poll, Favorite Real Housewife of 2014. Thank you for your participation. We hope you enjoyed it.

See the Runners Up below, in order of votes received.
While some of our favorite reality shows may deserve Emmy Awards for their acting and scripts, they DO get some recognition in other categories. The Primetime Emmys were announced this morning and several of our favorite shows made the cut!
Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, Flipping Out and Million Dollar Listing New York were among the many shows given an Emmy nod today. The Emmy winners will be announced on August 25th. Check out who made the cut!
This is the true story…of seven strangers…picked to live in a house/casino/fire station/fish market…and have their lives taped…as they concoct fabulous new culinary delights. Wait, what?
MTV is getting back to its roots…no, the network isn't going back to actually playing music, but it will be revamping the Real World genre with a culinary take–and it's casting now. Are you ready to apply?
Last week on Top Chef, Micah Fields won the sexy knife quickfire challenge and Kristen Kish won the memorable moments elimination challenge. In a cook-off with Lizzie Binder, John Tesar (and his eye glasses) fell victim to the curse of the risotto and was eliminated. Ouch! Being eliminated over Lizzie, who knowingly cooked and served questionable scallops, had to be embarrassing.
While Josh Valentine (and his twisty mustache) is glad John is gone, Stefan Richter (and his wrinkle-free face) misses his "morning friend." Josie Malave declares she didn't come back as a stupid chef. True. She came back as an annoying chef.
The challenge: create a dish highlighting ginger… sponsored by Canada Dry Ginger Ale… in only fifteen minutes. Ginger Ale. It's what pays the bills.
15 minutes? Wolfgang Puck? The pressure is on! Lizzie makes a split-second decision and grabs watermelon. Brooke loves ginger and pairs it with squid. Stefan disses Sheldon's stir fry dish, calling it too pedestrian and Chinese restaurant, and Sheldon yells "mother f-ker" at his meat.
