Real Or Fake…?

Join an ongoing discussion, at the hizzouse, by sharing your thoughts on how you know if you or someone else is real or fake?  The question arose after watching the premiere of True Beauty this week when one of the contestant’s (the mean one from Nashville) began a rant about all the other people in the house being ‘completely fake’.

What is fake?  What is real?  Over the years I’ve always heard the ‘I just want to be around people who are real’ statements from some of the most fake people I know.  Does that make me fake for not telling them my thoughts on their situation at that moment? 

What about this week’s episode of Bromance when Gary (the dance instructor) told Brody that Femi was one of the guys to watch out for in terms of causing too much commotion in the house?  When Gary went to Femi to tell him what happened, Femi acted a fool towards Gary declaring him to be ‘fake’.  Personally, I think it was a rather respectable thing for Gary to do in regards to bringing Femi up to speed on his discussion with Brody.

And what about the video below?  What does Aubrey really mean when she overstates the word ‘real’ about 30 times? (Side note, does plastic surgery already default you into the fake category?)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 I’d love to know what you think!

  1. Yes, you are absolutely right! People calling others ‘fake’ and themselves ‘real’ is something i’ve noticed for a while, but it was only the airing of True Beauty that made me point it out to my roommates.

    We’ve noticed a couple of other prevalent terms. Bromance and True Beauty both had a minimum of two “it is what it is”s and “at the end of the day”s. True Beauty even had an “At the end of the day it is what it is.”

    But what makes someone real? Being laid back and down-to-earth, I’m guessing.
