    I keep coming back to the title of the show. Maybe it is we who are being deceived...

    It's entertainment, not news. I don't believe it for the same reason I'm an atheist - I'm skeptical of things that seem unreal and are presented without evidence. It's just in my nature. And I certainly don't believe unusual things just because I'm told it's true.

    Yup. Good point.

    I now think it's mostly totally fake/staged, with just a hint of truth to keep people from flipping the channel.

    The street hypnosis stuff was so fake and soooooo poorly staged that I'm surprised they even broadcast it without saying "dramatization" onscreen.

    So I got around to watching Hell's Kitchen on Tivo from Monday. There was a segment at the start where they made the contestants shave their heads, one man and one woman. It turned out to be a joke, where they had to planted actors appear as contestants to have them actually shave their heads and scare the real contestants, but right away I recognized the guy who shaved his head...

    He was the guy who appeared on this supposedly "real" show on Discovery, Deception with Keith Berry!! He was the sleeper agent kid in that long segment where Keith Berry supposedly put him under hypnosis and hacked into mind, making him perform a faux assassination (by poisoning someone) all while being hypnotized.

    On Hell's Kitchen they said it was the sous chef's "friend" but it's pretty clear he was an actor. Here's a screen pic from Hell's Kitchen on Monday:


    It's our buddy the "sleeper agent"! :D

    Pretty clear that this show was a total con job on the audience. I don't usually expect reality to be "real" but wow, that's pretty bad when Discovery channel does it.

    P.S. I hate having the ability to instantly recognize faces sometimes...:D

    Very interesting!!! I have been interested in Derren Brown, Keith Barry and NLPers. I have always been skeptical.
