    The actual physical retro-fit is real, it would be hard to fake the before/after footage.

    However, all the bullshit background story, the premise that the wife doesn't know etc is most certainly embellished or a downright lie.

    Fuck, I was thinking I was a savant at guessing which house they pick because I'm mostly right. Since it's a set up, they're probably giving off tells that I'm picking up on. I still suck at poker though.

    Next you're going to tell me Mom Caves is fake and hosted by a dumb bimbo. I don't believe it. Say it ain't so.

    Howard is fake, too?
    Good grief.
    The only thing real that I can depend on now, is professional wrestling.

    I discovered this show by watching Mom Caves. I was looking for reruns of Beth's show one Saturday night & came across a House Hunters marathon. I really liked it because the house seekers were all stupid people.
    Now it turns out to be fake?
    That's like finding shit in my bowl of Corn Flakes.
    Bummer.

    Often if only 1 of the houses has no furniture in it, it's a dead giveaway which one they already closed on.

    Although just as phony, I actually do like International HH as it affords an eye view of many foreign areas I'd never otherwise see, and lifestyles within those areas.

    Did people actually think that the show was 100% real?

    My god we have some gullible people. Even I knew it was bullshit but I still enjoyed seeing which one was the persons house

    I liked the show, even the international one, but I did find it fishy that the show them 3 houses and they buy one. Now I know why.

    They just got caught is all. They're no different than any other "reality" show.
    Which "reality" show is not fake?
    They all stretch it a bit and play up the drama for the cameras.
    After all, some "reality" stars make up to $750,000 (I think per season) and can renegotiate every season based on their "performance".
