YMMV: The Only Way Is Essex
- And You Thought It Would Fail: Before the show launched, the concept was pretty much universally derided as a pointless knockoff of a Channel Four show called Seven Days. TOWIE massively defied expectations by becoming a hit while the C4 show died a death and is now barely remembered.
- Discredited Trope: The Essex Girl stereotype is this now, if not Dead Horse Trope territory yet.
- Magnificent Bastard / Manipulative Bastard / Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Lauren, Amy and Maria all fit this trope well.
- Snark Bait: Unsurprising considering before Geordie Shore came along it was considered Britain's answer to Jersey Shore.
