The premise behind ‘Beauty and the Geek’ is simple, take a classic dating show and flip it upside down by pitting some of the most beautiful women on earth with the nerdiest men god has ever created.
While this show gave hope to many video-gamers and programmers, it was sadly fake. Not only were many of the geeks acting, but some of the girls were paid actresses. It was totally fake.
'Project Runway' is quite a popular show, and gives a supposed behind-the-scenes look into the work that goes into runway fashion shows. Unfortunately, the show has been outed by many of its former participants, including Jack Mackenroth and Daniel Esquivel.
These designers claim that scenes are extremely sensationalized and that the reality is much more boring. This one was designed to be fake!
The premise behind 'Restaurant Stakeout' is seeing Restaurateur Willie Degel get behind the counter in unsuccessful food establishments and fix their broken businesses. He does this by firing inadequate staff members in a highly dramatic fashion, which is quite a tall order for a weekly TV show.
One of the show’s participants admitted the studio contacted him and screened for bad employees. They also asked the restaurant's staff to act as horribly as possible. Horrendously fake.
Like many popular reality shows, the main entertaining crutch behind 'Dance Moms' is the drama and confrontations. In 2015, one of the show’s past participants, Maddie Ziegler, revealed that the production basically set it up so that everyone was always mad and yelling at each other.
She even claimed moms would set up fake fights and yell at each other just for show. Not so motherly but extremely fake.
90 Day Fiance
There are so many things wrong about '90 Day Fiance' that many of us hoped it was fake from the get-go. The premise of the show is that a person “imports” a potential foreign wife or husband, and has 90 days to marry them before their tourist visa expires.
Some participants claimed that the drama in the show was intentionally gained by producers for ratings. There were so many things morally wrong about this show that some had to be fake.
