In 2009, “Jersey Shore” became one of the world’s most popular reality shows. While the cast members are friends in real life, most of their drama is apparently made up.
A lawyer whose offices were located just across the street from them reported that many of their walkouts were not only staged but rehearsed to perfection.
"Hardcore Pawn" revolves around the Gold family, who runs a pawn shop in Detroit’s rough 8 Mile. While the show teaches you a thing or two about negotiations and handling people, much of its drama is fake.
Many of the show’s participants later claimed that their incredibly exaggerated fights with the Gold family were completely inauthentic.
I Am Cait
Caitlyn Jenner rocked the world when she announced her transition into a female, and everyone wanted to follow her story. "I Am Cait" was the answer to that demand. The show followed her throughout her challenging gender transition.
Once the first season was over, most of the excitement was gone, so the producers began creating fake scenarios for Cait to react to.
There’s a lot of merit behind a show about hard-working people finally getting rewarded for all their under-credited hard work. Each episode revolves around a company’s boss going undercover and learning crucial lessons about his employees and business.
Unfortunately, various reports indicate that the show is mostly fake, including the various promises made to employees.
RuPaul's Drag Race
In 2009, "RuPaul's Drag Race" showed the world what would happen when you take a bunch of drag queens and put them in a reality show.
Despite its popularity, former contestants claim that the show’s producers often ginned up the drama by intentionally getting them emotional and then cutting clips deceptively to make them look bad.
