Most of them are totally fake. I know on House Hunters, most of the families on the show had already purchased a house and were just touring houses for the cameras. And I have read that on Love It or List It, even the couple doesn’t know what they “chose” until their episode airs, because they film both endings!

Everything is usually planned in advance. In the show where they tour three houses, two of them belong to friends which is why most of them are fully furnished and have like, pots and pans, tv’s, books on the bookshelf, etc. The one they choose is the one they were going to get all along.

The buyers have already purchased one of the houses before filming begins. https://nypost.com/2019/06/20/the-secrets-behind-hgtvs-smash-hit-house-hunters/

AFAIK, the people have usually already bought the house they “pick” in the show. Everything else is fake.

Everything on TV is fake. Do you think that shows like “Chopped” or “Beat Bobby Flay” were not totally scripted months in advance?

All staged even the fights and disagreements… lol my friends did it and they made them disagree on stuff.

Every reality show you have ever seen is 99% fake and staged. The skill shows like cooking\dancing whatever obviously the contestants have talent, but the drama is all staged.

​

It’s all smoke and mirrors.
