Some people fervently watch reality TV with the notion that it is all authentic. No one is acting and everything being said and done is 100% real. Despite making you think that reactions and conversations are never scripted, this is hardly the case.
As more people who have participated in these type of shows come forward and admit that they were given a role to play to break into show biz, the more we realize it's that reality TV is an oxymoron. One show that was popular from 2004 to 2007 was MTV's Pimp My Ride.
The premise was to take an old, beaten up car and fix it up with extravagant and often unnecessary upgrades. Turns out not all that glitters is gold.
The rapper showed up at the participant's house to take a look at the car and see all the things wrong with it before promising it to make it look like a million dollars.
