Reality TV is not real - Part One

Home buyers from HGTV's epic reality show, House Hunters, have stepped forward to tell the world that the show is fake. (pause for sharp intakes of breath) Yes, you read it right, FAKE.
Suzanne Whang - past host of HGTV's House Hunters
For the 99.9 % of the population who have not seen it, House Hunters follows home buyers trying to select and purchase their dream home from 3 possible houses and the viewer is invited to guess which one they end up before the conclusion of the 30 minute show.

It turns out that the home buyers have already chosen their house and have signed a purchase agreement before the cameras even start rolling. The 'buyers' are then filmed poking through their new, unoccupied home and two other random houses, making comments as if they were appraising all three for purchase.

Pie Town Productions were unavailable for interview, but did issue the following statement:
"We've learned that the pursuit of the perfect home involves big decisions that usually take place over a prolonged period of time - more time than we can capture in 30 minutes of television…. We're making a television show, so we manage certain production and time constraints, while honoring the home buying process…. Showcasing three homes makes it easier for our audience to "play along" and guess which one the family will select."
In short, they are not making Reality TV but Realty TV.

Which reality show will be unmasked as a fake next? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
