Is The Show Real?
Remember the level of disappointment many wrestling fans faced when they found out that it wasn’t all real? Well, lovers of the reality prank series can be rest assured they would never get to feel such level of disappointment as their beloved show is as real as a reality show can get.
Unlike other prank shows aimed at getting the better of unsuspecting public members, Impractical Jokers‘ pranks are based on targeting the members of its main cast in the most embarrassing fashion.
Although it is not staged or fake, they tend to have a script so as to spice up the flow of things thereby making the show more dramatic. Despite the fact that the challenges are done by all the cast, it’s the duty of the producers to select which challenge makes it into the telecast. It’s also very interesting to know that punishments meted to losers on the show are filmed separately and not necessarily because of a joker losing the highest number of challenges in an episode like they want us to believe. But that’s not too bad for a reality prank show, is it?
