    So in your humble opinion, what's the fakest?
    I don't count the Kardashians or any of the "Reality" dramas like the real housewives or Jon and Kate or any shows of that ilk as reality shows, they are nighttime soap operas that are based on some semblance of reality.
    So, that leaves the competition shows, the store shows, home/car/stuff rehab shows, cooking shows and shows about work.

    The fakest of the fake to me, even though I like it is a tie for Love it or List it and the Property Brothers...they have the same format every episode, with slight tweaks and nothing ever goes off the rails totally....what else do you guys got?

    The only "reality" shows I watch are talent-based (Dancing with the Starts, The Voice, etc). I'm sure there's probably some element of "fake" going on, too.

    I've never seen any of those other reality shows (Kardashians, Housewives, etc.) :oops:

    Howard has stated on numerous occasions that he invented reality shows.

    Pawn Stars is so scripted and terribly performed. They're not very good actors...and they're playing themselves! o_O

    I am so proud to say the same thing...never seen any of the ''pampered lifestyles you'll never have'' reality shows either. :lo5:

    It's baffling, right? And the Old Man has one foot in the grave at this point. Do they really need to prop him up and film him gargling his speech just to add to the "reality" of the show? I think not!

    I haven't seen many reality shows because I'm better than you, but the storage locker one is absurd. Always a bunch of worthless shit with a Faberge egg under the seat cushion

    This! "Real" motorcycle gang drama on Discovery. It was so bad that it stunk on ice. When I first heard there was a motorcycle gang slaughter in Waco, I was hoping that maybe, just maybe it was these guys. Posers one and all.

    I like American Pickers. I like the girl in the office. Sometimes she doesn't look that good, sometimes she's smoking hot.

    Undercover Boss. In the episodes I have seen, there is always the hard luck inspirational stories and the generous boss who gives them some extra money or a vacation etc. I have yet to see the slacker who gets fired on the spot for being a dick. How about an employee who points out how shitty the company is? You know, real life work talk, riiiiight!?

    Same goes for Bar Rescue. Same shit different locations. Shut It Down!

    That Alaskan Bush Family. The phony weird accent. None of them look alike or anything like the parents. One problem after another....
    It's obvious that they just got some actors together for this bullshit.
    This guy Bear is funny as shit though. He's extreme !
