An annoying discovery: Reality TV isn’t that real

I’m a happy and well-educated senior citizen, and, just like most of you, watch a fair amount of TV. On one so-called reality show we sometimes watch, which shall be nameless, centered on a pawn shop, I noticed that a putative customer was trying to sell a vintage guitar, a Gibson Les Paul custom. This transaction seemed a bit suspect to me, as a guitar buff, until I researched a little further and found it was completely fake, the seller being a guy from the local guitar store, the so-called evaluator his own boss, and I had almost been fooled.
