Tell Us About Your Experience As A Contestant Or Crew Member Of A Reality Dating Show

From Love is Blind to The Bachelor to Love Island, reality dating shows are undeniably thriving. There are so many, in fact, that I feel like my "to-watch" list is truly neverending. I don't know what it is, but there's just something about them that really scratches that itch in our brains!

Over the last few years, cast members and crew alike have spilled the tea on what it's really like behind the scenes, revealing everything from up to 20 hour workdays to parts of the show being completely staged.

Perhaps you were absolutely shocked to learn just how much of the show is fake and scripted. Or...perhaps it was way more authentic and real than you were expecting?

Or maybe you worked on casting and have found people are surprised to learn you actually recruit more contestants through social media than through open calls.
