    IBasically every eppie is the same. **** daters being replaced by parents of the other dater. I tell you, if a guy dating my daughter treated her and me like the guys on this show do, I'd kick his ass. I don't care what my daughter would think. No one treats me or my family the way this losers do. Especially in my house.

    The girls are usually very attractive, both the good girls and the bad ones.

    The parents always seem to be pretty well off. The houses are always large and beautiful.

    Everythings just too...perfect. I think they've all been given lines cos some of them are just too well thought out for them to be off the top of their heads. Also all the houses happen to look exactly the same...?

    Of course its fake! They feed the people the lines. It's all in the script.

    There was a girl that my sister worked with and she was on the show. She got paid $500 and played the part of the girlfriend.

    Obviously this show is fake. I agree with whoever said if this show was real, there would be fighting and crying and stuff. I'm never going to watch this show again.

    The show is VERY badly acted, just like all these kinds of shows (have you ever seen Date My Mom? lol!). I watched one yesterday, not sure if it was an old episode or not. But the son went on two dates. And mean while his girlfriend was arguing with his parents and she threw gum in the mom's hair and said the dad had a tiny
    d**k :O In the end the boyfriend ended up choosing a girl he went on a date with because she was a bikini model *rolls eyes* id love to know how long these "relationships" last after they bump uglies then realise they have nothing in common

    I was a "mean dad" in an early episode (taped 2005, aired 2006); while it looks entirely fake and rediculously formulaic, in our case about half the dialog was directed and the other half ad lib; actually some of the writers' lines were so lame I substituted my own a few times. They did some outrageous things to elicit extreme facial expressions on camera. Of course, I actually DID think my son's dates were better than his incumbent girlfriend, and much hotter. I wanted my son to pursue one of the girls post-taping. We taped at our house which was not typical at the time; they usually had a "set" but the crew was elated to tape at a real house with room for the crew to maneuver around (the crew numbered about 25 people). I have to say it was a lot more time-consuming than we expected---probably 16 hours total between audition, the studio bit (where we interview the girls), and the house scenes, and of course more time for our son and his "dates". It was a ton a fun though, the crew was a blast, everyone--- from the exec producer to the English makeup chick---was really great. Other benefits: my son attends a very big university in the cold Midwest, and he was able to milk his "fame" to great advantage his whole freshman year. The show could be so much better with just a little creativity; it would be so easy to punk the parents with simple riffs on the scenes and scripts they already use anyway, but they seem content with the ratings they're getting with the basic formula.

    Yeah, this show is fake because the parents and the contestants are wearing earpieces so the producers can tell them their lines and plus the houses are always big, this show is scripted and overall, FAKE.

    Clearly fake. Why they would think anyone would think it's real is beyond me. There are no parents, daughters, sons, boyfirneds, or girlfriends. They're all actors. Maybe if they made it look a least a little real it might fool some people. But having the bad girlfriend/boyfriend acting they way the parents say they do on camera in a massively exagerated way that no one on Earth would act like doesn't help their cause.
