The Netflix show featured an Indian matchmaker who helped real people try and find love. While one participant claimed everything you see on the show is real, another said he felt misrepresented by the show.
He said that producer made it seem as if he was ghosting the girl he was dating, but he claims it was the other way around and that he was actually the one being ghosted by her. He didn’t appreciate being written off as the bad guy.
"Kitchen Nightmares" is actually a dream to watch. It's almost laughable how some restaurants run. As always with Ramsay, he gets angry specifically for the camera. Who knows, he might even be a chill guy in real life.
We also heard it said that sometimes the people you see as kitchen staff in these real-life restaurants are actually just actors who were paid to pretend that they've always worked there.
"Laguna Beach" was both real and fake. Real in the sense that all the people you saw on it were real people, who were actually friends. They just casually had cameras tag along. But, like almost any reality show, many moments were heavily produced and heavily edited.
For example, while production didn't tell Kristin to be a "bad girl," they would never put in the show moments when she said something sweet or acted nicely. That way she always seemed mean.
Here's a fun fact you may not have known, the show was actually originally a British one that aired in 2014. In 2021, Netflix decided to bring it back to life. The concept is simple, people get to date each other, but everyone is wearing crazy special effects masks that make them unrecognizable.
Each person is represented by a different animal and there's no way you can know what the person looks like under the mask. While it seems that the decisions they make in the end are real, most of the other things about the show are likely not.
The show makes for really good TV but is any of it real? It's most likely that most of the drama in the show is actually created in the editing room.
While the events you see are most likely real, you do see an exaggerated version of them. So no, the show is not scripted, but it's also not really real either.
