 Do people get money for Maury, The First 48, Cheaters., etc..?
topic by chaboiB - 02-22-2011, 10:37 AM - Boxden > The TV and Movie Spot


Me n a friend of mine have this discussion all the time about whether or not people get money for bein on these types of shows...

he says: they don't get paid, the show just pays the fee for paternity tests, hotels and transportation....

but i'm sayin, in cases like the lie detector test; what would posess all these idiots to go on the show and take lie detector tests (knowing they will fail) and get embarrassed... WHERE'sS THE INCENTIVE?

and in cases like "The First 48" what would possess a snitch to allow them to use they're likeness on national TV besides money or a reduction in sentencing maybe?

same with Cheaters, you get caught and embarrassed and you still allow them to use your likeness/face ......... no blur? wtf ... they GOTTA be gettin SOMETHING out the deal

anybody know any facts on this?

1. You have to understand that these shows have written scripts and set solutions.

2. You have to understand that humans gravitate towards attention, the camera a$sists this urgent need regardless of what you portray behind it (insert negative stereotype ie. 'slut' or 'thug').

I worked for a talk show I won't call by name, just know it formerly was filmed in Chicago... We didn't pay people to be on the show, they got a free trip to Chicago, all expense paid... only thing we couldnt buy for them was alcohol, everything else was paid for.. We also could reimburse them if they had a job for the time off they had to be on the show... Which was normally around 2 days...

it's 2011 enough with the dumbass snitch stuff

!! has always been dumb, don't commit the crime if you can't do the time, people will always "rat" or "snitch" be legit and don't worry, can't get mad at people doing something legit to get paid

you're not very smart are u...

i pretty much said why do some snitches blur their face and disguise there voice... and some dont (i would a$sume they would ALL want there face blurred)? do the ones that allow u to see there face get paid?

think about the question before giving a foolish answer
