    Is Reality TV really real?

    I never understood why these programs are deemed reality TV when you have writers, producers, & organized storylines. On top of all that, the cast members involved know that the cameras are rolling so there could never be pure natural interaction knowing the whole country or world is watching. I don't know about you, but I only watch reality TV to see beautiful sexy women. LOL

    Nope, a lot of reality TV shows that claim they are real are basically fake, they just pay actors and get them to read the script and fake their emotions and all of that, tbh you're better off watching a documentary or something like that.

    I totally agree! these shows are a joke. There is not way real life would be that organized where everyone just happens to be at the right places at the right times to have fights and confrontations. I feel the only thing that may be real is some of the fights because they get caught up in the hype and influenced instigation from fans.

    Some are and some aren't but the thing is that there are so many of them that it has gotten just plain boring. I don't watch them anymore. If I want to see people acting like fools then I just have to step outside of my door.

    Nope, whether it's One Life to Live or General Hospital, all reality TV shows are fake. Nobody has that kind of timing to get things just right.

    It's staged, but it counts as reality because there are real people in it. Honestly, though, you have to admit they can be really exciting sometimes, even if they ARE fake.

    A lot of the television shows are staged, however it may be some real things as well that are implemented into them. Like on 16 and pregnant, how can you really stop a child screaming or running around and things like that. Other reality television shows I think are always directed in the way of You do this and that and make it look like you did something but really didn't. I think it depends on what show you are actually watching to be honest, then again on the fence about some of them myself, it's really hard to tell sometimes.

    There are a few different kinds of staging. On one hand everyone is aware they're on a reality show so they do what they can to fill the roles they have assigned themselves and get attention. On the other hand there are editors and writers who take the footage the cast gives them and turns it into stories that the audience can view and take a liking to.

    Most of them are staged at different levels...

    I used to watch that dude Bear Grylls, and he's as fake as they come. He's filming himself sleeping inside a camel's stomach or something, and then he just packs his shit and goes to the hotel...

    That Storage Room reality show is also pretty fake...

    I don't know most of them at this point, because I don't like to feed my brain this stuff.
    I did watch all of Jersey Shore's seasons though

    Yeah buddy!

    No, of course not. They posit it to be real but there's always editing and some trumping up of drama and lesser problems. Or they completely fabricate the situations to insert drama where there wasn't any.

    It is however cheaper and more popular to do so they'll keep doing it as long as people want it.

    It would be hard to call it fake,maybe just heavily scripted and there are so many re-takes so that they don't go wrong.It would be hard to call it real though,except for the people.They are all trained to not do any mistakes...and probably that proves enough.

    Yea, I tend to mute the tv and just watch the women. Because usually on reality tv, despite how hot they may be, they are usually very phony, putting on acts and being super dramatic to try make the show more interesting. I bet their lives are a lot different when the camera is off.

    The way all the foolishness is going on thee days i dont think any of them are real. I mean they have real world situations that go on. In most cases the producers have them ct a certain way or say certain things just to make it more exciting. I understand they have to do certain things to promote their show and keep it going. I just dont agree with how they portray certain ethnic groups. The things we see on tv makes others perception of someone that way when its not always like that.

    Maybe some sections are real, but other storylines are exaggerated and/or implemented in order to keep the story going and relevant to the target demographics.
