It's been widely known and accepted that "reality" shows like The Jersey Shore and Keeping Up With The Kardashians are not entirely real, but what about other forms of reality shows? Bobi Jensen wrote a blog post about her family's episode on the HGTV show House Hunters back in 2006 and what she wrote about caused an uproar.
As it turns out, the producers of the show didn't want to work with Bobi and her husband until they had already signed a lease with the house they chose. Instead of truly looking at three houses, the Jensen family had already picked the home they wanted and then had to find two other homes to compare it to. “It felt like we just had a few days to scrounge up some houses to look at and it was our responsibility to find the houses …,” Jensen said. “And, finally, the producer just said find any houses you can. Just find something.” In the end, the Jensens used two of the Jensen's friends homes as the other homes they were looking at.
They were also not given someone in real estate careers to help them find a home. In their episode, Bobi's husband was their real estate agent.
What do you think of this?
