Most reality shows give stars some money for filming. But twenties It has a different approach than the shows that preceded it, such as The real world.
“The real world It’s been in business for 30 years or something. If you’re comparing me to an offer with that much staying power, I’ll take it. “I’m not going to mock that, I’m not going to be mocking that,” show host Ian Gelfand told Us Weekly. “I feel like there are differences between this and The real world. employment The real worldThey all get a salary of $1,000 a week or something. They don’t have to work.”
He continued, “There is a lot of drama. I don’t know if the term ‘real world’ actually works for it. I feel like we’re more realistic. But I don’t want to crush anyone. It’s a great show to compare.”
The actors had to buy their own food for the house. When they got out, they paid for their way too. “When we want them to do something just for us, we are willing to pay for it, but in general, they had to take care of themselves,” Gelfand said. “And believe me, they will ask me to advance!”
