What do you think about the TV show 'Breaking Amish' on TLC?
I happen to really like this show, and have been watching each week. I guess I just wonder if these people decide to go back to their life in the Amish culture, will they be punished for their actions? That makes me feel like TLC really only cares about making 'good TV' (money). I am happy for the 5 young people who get to do what they want for a change, and yes, they are doing it willingly, but they have always had the option to leave and hadn't up until TLC showed up. What do you think? Is this helping or hurting the 5 Amish people on the show? What do you think will happen if they go back?
More proof that TLC has become nothing but a freak show.
I've only watched it once, but I thought it was pretty awful. I doubt it will turn out well for the participants. Look what happened to John and Kate Plus 8. I used to love them, but now their lives are a disaster.
Honestly, I see a couple homeschool kids doing the same thing the Amish do. The homeschoolers who are mostly controlled by their parents and kept away from society don't know what to do once they are without their parents. Eventually, they even out, but it takes time.
TLC gives them more of a chance to get out and make it. So I completely understand them not leaving until TLC showed up. It is helping them learn more. However, once they go back, they will probably just leave again. I'm waiting for the episode when they go back. It will be interesting.
I like Breaking Amish Show on TLC and TLC is a Good TV channel.
I've read opinions that TLC is exploiting them, but they are old enough to know what they are getting into. They seem of sound mind and body. TLC didn't make them do anything they weren't already contemplating I'm sure. It's important to realize that reality shows are heavily edited; TLC makes them appear more naive than they really are.
If they decide not to go back or are rejected by the Amish after the show, there are support services for former Amish that can help them integrate among the "English" as they call non-Amish. Plus, they have each other as support. I think they will be OK.
This is a SPOILER for the show, do not read unless you want to know what I just found out:
I have just read online that this whole show has been faked. These five people have been out of the Amish Community for a while. I read that Rebecca and Abe have been married for 3 years and have a child together.
Something always did seem weird to me, however I really did want to believe these people were getting out and exploring life for the first time and all that jazz...
What are your thoughts? Do you think it is faked?
