I mean....the made over CEO's were sometimes so OBVIOUSLY fake looking that you would have to have glaucoma and have blinding cataracts not to see that is a wig...those glasses look about as real as a wooden nickel...etc. etc. I mean how on earth did they not know this person is wearing a wig, false eyebrows etc.?
I know what you mean, but I think they've gotten better with the disguises. This last one where the CEO of a fitness place fired one of the employees on-air...his disguise was very good and I thought quite natural-looking.

The thing I wonder...now that the show has been on a while and people know about it, wouldn't you be a little suspicious if some person came to your work place to...um...do a documentary or something, with a camera crew along? Wouldn't you be thinking, "Hmmm...I wonder if this is Undercover Boss?" I would. And I'd be acting accordingly, you betcha, working really hard, being very kind and cheerful and making sure to have some sad personal story to share with the possible undercover boss. Some sad situation that could be fixed with a large influx of cash. : )

But the girl who got herself fired...I don't think she was the least bit suspicious it was Undercover Boss. If the thought did cross her mind and she still acted like that, she's really, really stupid.
Well after several "reality" shows have now done a little admitting of staging - I have little faith in any of these shows. I knew there was something up with Storage Wars before they admitted to pre-staging the lockers...and then when Pawn Stars admitted producers actively "recruit" people to bring in interesting things (they are all real, just not walk ins like the show infers)...after this - I have little doubt there is some unreality about all reality shows.
Well, there are reality shows, and then there are reality shows. Surivor and The Amazing Race, for example, are a cut above shows like Storage Wars and Pawn Stars. Waaaaayyyyyy above. Not even in the same league.

That MAY have been an error on the part of your local CBS station. Not like CBS to make an error like that. I have it recorded and haven't finished watching it...I'll see if that was the same in my area. Matter of fact, I think I'll watch it right now!

...............................................

Okay....I watched it.

At the very end of the show I see what you mean... they did have some scenes that were from the show that just aired. Kind of odd. But after they came back from a commercial break they showed scenes from "next week's show" and it was for the "Epic Employees" show that will air next week. So there may have been an error at your local station if they did not show that.

Almost none of them can..at least at the places I've worked.

All reality shows are staged or rigged.
