What do you think of MTV's Catfish?

Like Tree4Likes

Man, reality shows make me sick. All literally staged, I guess: Breaking Amish, this show, dang! Even my beloved, trashy Cheaters.

"In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

4a, mbl, low porosity, normal thickness, fine hair.
I'm addicted to all "The Real Housewives" shows. I can't believe the crap I put into my brain in the evenings. I'm sure most of that is staged. Not all, because Taylor's husband did commit suicide and Adrianne & Camille did get divorces..
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
I'm on board with 90% of reality shows have SOME sort of producer-driven influence.

But no way was that recent show with "Matt and Kim" staged. Nope, not buying it. Those emotions on both of their parts were too real.
It's obvious all those reality shows are staged..I mean they have to be lol. But who cares, as long as it's entertaining. I can't stand most of them. I do like one about rednecks though, I think it's called duck calls or something.

My friend was on Say yes to the dress and she was annoyed. They gave her scripts to say that were all very untrue, not even matching with their friendship or past.
i dont know about say yes to the dress. i thought at least those types of shows they let people be themselves.

i know show shows are i guess "edited". like queer eye for the straight guy. watching the show, it seems they were there for a day when in reality they would be there for close to a week. the show was just edited. but now i'm wondering if those guys were really just models or something. (if anyone knows, dont tell me, i dont want to know the truth!)

So Jasmine is all humiliated, and keeps saying "Let me just beat her azz, let me just beat her azz," and Missy is saying stuff like "You're fat, you're out of shape, who talks to somebody for two years, you're an idiot," etc.

Lord save he children. LOL and smdh!

DepressedCurls how do you know it was staged? I thought it was a documentary & I hate when I get wrapped up in "reality" shows that are fake.

And then there's stuff like filming multiple takes of everything, and making it look like a week's worth of activity happened in just one or two days.
^ Correct. If you really enjoy that genre, and keep that in mind, there is really not much difference in enjoying that and any other scripted television show/movie.

I prefer shows that are loosely categorized as reality, and at least offer a talent, but I also like pure junk food for the eyes every now and again. I do think the genre has been done past death, though.

Please stop!! Lol
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Which reminds me, I have a close friend (since childhood) who worked for a television network that provides several reality shows. She has given me dirt on which ones were staged, more so than the others. Some have amped up drama and story lines but the persons (who is not an actor by trade) skill/gift is 100 % reality. In other shows it's all complete nonsense, and the 'stars' are paid actors. It varies but all have scripts, story lines, and aspects that are played up.

And I'm sure that show BlindDate is fake too but its hilarious!
