The show has had some amazing talents on it, but it isn’t really about talent at all. It has been said that production decides who will go home based on who fans seem to connect with and not based on performance.
The judges have been known to avoid guessing the correct person, even when it’s obvious. Most notably, the show doesn’t have a live audience, but producers hid that fact from viewers till season 4.
Too Hot to Handle
"Too Hot to Handle" is very much like its name, but we still enjoy it very much. One contestant came forward saying that while production didn't tell him what to say or do, they did influence his decisions.
Basically, they tried to 'encourage' participants to do what they think will make the show more dramatic. One part that was very real though, is the fact that participants were not allowed any form of sensual satisfaction.
American's Next Top Model
This show ran for an incredible amount of seasons and it dominated pop culture for a long time. But, you'd be disappointed to hear that many times the winners were not picked based on their performance, and they were not even picked by the judges. In fact, it was Cover Girl who decided who would win the show.
Many of the models have also admitted that being on the show was a terrible experience and that being a Top Model veteran made it harder for them to get modeling jobs.
The reboot of this old classic took is always a mood-lifter, but things are not as real and authentic as the fab five make them seem. Home renovations are heavily sponsored by Ikea, and Booby, who is responsible for them, actually gets blueprints of the houses weeks before.
Also, the show makes it seem as if all the guys stay in a fancy loft together, but most likely each one of them has their own accommodation.
There's nothing more enjoyable than watching what was characterized as the Mafia of the Amish community, most of what you see on the show is fabricated. What do we know? Well, firstly, it was confirmed by police that was no such thing as an Amish Mafia.
Most of the people you see on the show are not even Amish, and the scenes are staged by the production team. It turns out that reality doesn't really make for good reality TV.
