Both shows are entertaining and fake. Just like American digger, it is a joke also but funny. I metal detect as a hobby and that show does hurt the hobby.

HUH. Interesting writeup. If everything is fake, what's the point of calling it reality? I wonder if it's even possible to have an unscripted real reality show? Would it be too boring? There MUST be groups of people out there somewhere that are naturally entertaining........

Yes it would be to boring. Even pawn stars is scripted. They have adds out all over the nation for people to bring anything unique to them. Gold rush is fake and so is diamond divers. All scripted for drama.

The sad thing isthatthe crab fishing deadliestcatch is as close to real.as it gets on tv. At least the fact that the boats are real and they catch crabs. Everything else is complete poop

I don't believe it!

Next thing you'll be saying is that wrestling is fake!

I made contact with the youth pastor who brought in his "Grandpa's 870" for conversion to a tactical shotgun. He explained to me that the ENTIRE situation was fake and totally scripted. He applied to be on the show and everything was arranged and set up. They did not destroy his granddaddy's shotgun, just made a new one. And of course he did not pay what they "charged" him for the shotgun.

The entire show, from start to finish, is totally and completely fake.

So much for "reality" TV.

I think the "reality" part of the genre means it's just not actors. All of those shows are "scripted" to some extent. It's funny how lately they can make a show by adding the word "Wars", "Men", "People" to any noun.

I must also mention Fast n Loud. I've never really been into cars or hot rods, but I love this show now too. Gas Monkey garage is so cool. My TV is most often on the Discovery Channel.
