    How much of "Reality TV" is real and how much is made up of paid actors?

    Whenever I watch a reality TV show (which is not often) I can't help but think that the whole things is contrived and pre-directed.  It makes me think that maybe Andrew Jacobs, from Ohio (or whomever) is really just a small unknown actor looking to make a break, being played like a pawn in the producers endgame.  Anyone been on a show or know someone who has?

    The more I see of Reality TV, the more it looks like it's made completely up. Let's take a repo show for instance. One in particular - "Operation Repo", The two tough guys are always getting the job of taking a car from bikers & gangs. While the women on the show are dealing with girls in bathing suits. Now come on, what are the odds of match ups like this every time?

    I think a great deal of it is made up, trouble is that i know look at most that way and it ends up being far less entertaining

    I sure would like to know the real answer to this question if there is a genuinely true one, not just speculations.
