Reality TV is fake. Water is wet.

When did you figure out Reality TV was not "real" ?

For me: Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell on Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire .. the numerous plot flaws (2000) and Junkyard Wars (2000 or 2001) finding a $20,000 brand new boat propeller in a landfill.

About the only one they don't / can't fake much is Deadliest Catch.

Don't go dissing Junkyard Wars.  Maybe the junkyard was seeded with things they might need.  But it was DAMN cool and they did the building.

When I filmed something for both Channel 4 and the BBC years ago. I was told both times that it was a reconstruction for a documentary on infectious deseases (I looked similar to patient 0).

One day, I got funny looks on the Tube with people pointing at me. Turns out that one of the programs had aired the day before and that I had "died" from my 'infection' 'live' on tv.

Instead of having the word 'reconstruction' at the bottom of the screen, they had the word 'live'.

It wasn't 'live' as we had shot it 5 months before. My last scene was with doctors rushing to 'try' to save my life.

Everything on tv is fake. I don't care how 'real' it looks, it's not.

Tourney3p0: Stop watching this shiat and they will stop making it.


People need diversion from their crushingly depressive lives. Obesity is an epidemic, debt is skyrocketing, people are working longer hours for fewer dollars which can buy ever-fewer goods. People have forgotten what it feels like to be happy and fulfilled. If they can't gaze into their television and judge somebody else for being uglier, fatter, less moral, stupider than them, well, what else do they have?

Time to wake up.

The only reality of reality TV is networks don't want to spend money and if they pretend it's a documentary the production values can be shiat.

The proper response to that is..."I got better".

I love how they showed the guy with various women that he took pictures with and indicated that there is no suggestion of them having sex.  No kidding.  If taking a picture with a hot woman meant you had sex with them, every 40-ish sales exec that posed with his blazer/jeans/cigar combo with a attractive woman would give Wilt The Stilt a run for his money.

Whether the viewers/suckers are poor and fat or MBA students throwing martini parties, they probably do need to make these fakefests a ritual to have someone to look down on.  Or they just love the "irony" in participating in the fad of the moment so they can have something to jaw about at The Watercooler.

Or, saddest of all, they think they can help some poor soul have hope and that the poor soul will live happily ever after.  Especially if the poor soul ends up pulling money out of their rear for the gullible public's entertainment.

I've got a friend who filmed an episode for one of those People's Court style shows just last week. She said the hardest part was trying to keep a straight face during the judge's improvised rants. The case itself was written from scratch and the "plaintiff" kept mispronouncing "husband's" name. Apparently there aren't any rehearsals for those and the crew REALLY doesn't like when they have to do more than one take because they want to get in as many episodes as possible during each day of filming.

Yeah, but that's like some corporate company saying their frozen burgers are fresh because it was fresh when it was frozen 2 years ago.

I think this one is real:

I suppose someone could throw a shot, though. I don't watch the bickering and stuff between competitions so that could all be scripted for all I know.

You must be young. MTV's Real World became the Scripted World in season #2. It was quite the scandal at the time.
