Reality TV Contestants Are Sharing All The Behind The Scene Secrets

When watching reality TV you may wonder which parts are actually “reality” and which parts are scripted. Well, some Redditors started a thread on Ask Reddit that proves that there isn’t much reality in reality TV, AOL reports.

According to Redditt, the biggest scripted aspect of reality TV is the sob story that producers pull out of contestants to add drama to their shows.

“Sob stories on singing shows, it’s not the contestant’s fault!,” said one commenter. “I made it through a few rounds for a well known singing show and they BEG you for sob stories. On my very first application form, I was asked about the most difficult moment in my life, what obstacles I’d overcome to be there, had I ever experienced bullying etc. They pretty much make you tell them a sob story.”

As it turns out most of the occurrences on reality TV are manipulated by producers.

“Everything on Pawn Stars is scripted too,” another Redditor said. “They bought a Jeep from my friend and he was even told when and how to smile or smirk when giving the interview.”

Redditors said that sometimes producers will go to great lengths just to get the footage they need.

“I have worked on several reality shows. Some are more fake than others, but they are all heavily scheduled and formatted, never spontaneous,” another user said. “I worked on a certain MTV dating show where one of the contestants tried to escape the house in the middle of the night, and one of the Production Assistants had to tackle him in the front yard and drag him back into the house. It's like prison, they are completely cut out from the outside world (no computer, books, phones, watches) and they are fed mostly booze. They all go insane.”
