Style Sheet

Reality Duds

Reality shows may be in vogue, but their stars are hardly in style (that means you, Blind Daters!). Some fashion faux pas are better left at home.

1 Matching shirts (see ''The Amazing Race 5'', above) on adults are never cute.

2 For the love of Julie Chen, don't fashion nasty-ass headbands out of T-shirt sleeves a la the ''Big Brother'' boys.

3 Punk things up, like ''The Real World'''s Frankie. But please keep the Hello Kitty items to a minimum.

4 Shame on ''The Great Domestic Showdown'''s Steve for letting his client wear that hoochie belly-baring wedding frock.

5 Okay, he's not a contestant, but don't make like reality pooh-bah Mark Burnett and go commando in your loafers. As for his cheesy shirts? Crockett and Tubbs bit it long ago.
