Many people dream of getting $5,000 to achieve a total fashion makeover. Some of the show’s participants claimed that the producers forced them to give away all their old clothes to charity.
This was done in order to get tax breaks on their new clothes, which pretty much made them free for the TLC network.
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.
The Real World
"The Real World" is actually not real at all. Many of its participants admitted that most of the conversations that happened in the house were actually scripted and pre-planned by the producers.
Everyone gets a rough direction of what they need to do or say, and improvise their way from there.
Professional wrestling always included its fair share of women athletes, as they bring a much-needed air of femininity to this mostly male sport.
"Total Bellas" was originally pitched as a reality show about two prominent female wrestlers. We’re not surprised the show was completely fake, considering its source material.
