I'm watching this reality show and everyone hates/steps on the nice new girl. Why do people hate on the quieter/nice people, in life in general?

People like genuine behaviour, but then again some are jealous maybe.

The toxic waste of the human race and opportunistic users will always be on the lookout for someone who will be an easy target for them.
But within a dating or sexual context, some people are just not sexually attracted to genuine niceguys (plus the female equivalent).
Too innocent, sweet, childlike, naive and cute like a puppy or baby.

From personal experience, I feel that this is the case because it's a defense mechanism; usually people feel that those who are quiet/nice are playing it safe, so they put their fences up so they don't let their guard down in the case that the "nice" person isn't as nice as they appear to be. There's also a nasty side to it as well, as in those same people hating the nicer people are jealous of their happiness since nice people oftentimes make people feel bad about themselves, so people will view nice people as their competition even though the nicer, quieter people will more likely work with you rather than against you.

In other words, insecurity and feeling of worthlessness, with a mix of competitiveness.

Not really. Not many people do that in real life, not saying it doesn’t happen

Yeah but you made it seem like every single person does it based off a reality show you watched which is full of exaggerations

I agree. The nice people at my old school got bullied for absolutely no reason by the popular people. I suspect they saw them as a way to boost their self-esteem (by bullying them and thinking they're better than them)??
