What is and what isn't real?

Whenever trying to work out whether a reality show is genuine reality or or completely staged, I think of the following argument: How many genuine, paid actors, can give as convincing a performance as the victims of this show appear to give. The answer is; Not that many. One comment about this show suggested that the entire program is staged, yet in the same comment they pointed out the story wherein Tom Cruise was a victim and was not happy about his participation. hmm? I won't argue that there may have been a certain amount of participation from well known franchises, but the reactions given by nearly all of this shows victims convinces me that it is completely truthful about who is aware of the stunt and who isn't. For someone to suggest that none of this shows contents is genuine says to me that this "Someone" has either; never watched an entire show, or not actually been clever enough to understand exactly what the point of the show is. My point being, don't comment on the show unless you actually know what you're talking about. PS. I think this show is pretty good.
