Is the Maury Povich Show Fake?


Friend of mine and I were debating this, and I've heard people say that those "you aren't the Father" shows are fake and they are just paid actors.

But I saw that he's been on Air for 20 years, 5 days a week, that's like 5200 shows, and with 4-5 reveals that's like 10(couples) + mothers,sisters,new GFs for support....that's like over 60,000 actors Maury has hired who were professionally trained on how to act like trash?

Fake or not?

I think it probably started out as real and then became fake once they realized what kind of ratings it gets them.

Where did Jamal get his training? What was his motivation to put him into character?

I want to say from what I've seen is that its mostly real, but the show producers and such really encourage the trashy behavior for a kick back to the guests.

So there is a nugget of conflict for the people to be mad about, but they encourage them to have stronger feelings about it then they really would so they can get the ratings.

You're really underestimating the number of unemployed "actors" in LA. Ever been there? 60k is nothing.

So was there doubt in a pregnancy, are the kids real, did the people actually sleep with each other?

I'm not sure I could get up on stage and pull it off. might start laughing or something

Maury used to have a legit talk show. Not exactly sure when he went all jerry springer on us.
