The popular home–buying show “House Hunters“ is not a documentary style program as many viewers believe. The show is deliberately produced and often scripted to create the illusion of authentic reality television.
In reality, all the house visits are done in one day, the participants are actors or couples that have already chosen which home they want before filming starts, and scenes are re–enacted for dramatic effect. This means that all of the house hunting process shown on TV is not genuine and often exaggerated to create added drama and interest. So while it may be entertaining to watch, it‘s important to remember that “House Hunters“ is completely fake!
