After UnReal first on Lifetime in 2015, some fans said Am Bachelor they began to look at the show in a different way. The scripted series provided a fictional behind-the-scenes look at her Old boy-sque reality display (called Forever).

Forward UnReal, the producers go to great lengths and distractions to get their competitors to do what they want to say and do on camera. Even more worrying, one of the creators of the UnReal, Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, really works Am Bachelor. Fans wondered – and worried – how many of the dramatic scenes there were UnReal inspired by Shapiro’s real experiences.

However, Harrison was not sure.

Mar Variety reported in 2015, he had a few words of choice for UnReal at the time. Asked about the difference between the two shows, Harrison said: “Really, the main difference I’ve seen is that people watch Am Bachelor. ”

He also denied the basis of the Lifetime series.

“It’s complete fiction,” Am Bachelor said a guest. Harrison continued to mercifully slow down the show:

As if they wanted to jump on our overcoats – they were begging us to talk about it and for people to write about it – at the end of the day, no one looks. I mean, really nobody’s watching that show. Why? It’s horrible. It’s horrible.

Harrison also differentiated the Lifetime series from parodies on shows like Saturday Night Live – which is “part of the oral tradition.” Am Bachelor star sees the SNL sketches as “a mark of respect.”

“That way UnReal he accepted, it was not a sign of respect, ”Harrison explained. “They were trying to take a different direction, but it’s not working out that way. ”

The creator of ‘UnReal’ responds to Harrison ‘s comments

Mar Weekly Us statement, Shapiro – “who acted as an assistant to a producer on Am Bachelor from 2002 to 2004 ″ – shared her views on Harrison ‘s views at the Paley Center for Media Afternoon UnREAL. She remained positive as a result Am Bachelor guest – if a little tongue-in-cheek.

“We’re glad he saw it,” said Shapiro. “We’re glad he saw it.”

However, the story does not end there.

Did Season 2 ‘UnReal’ have fun poking at ‘The Bachelor’ guest?

Slate argue that the Lifetime show itself responded to Harrison ‘s ideas, in his own way.

Forward UnReal, actor Brennan Elliott played Harrison on it Am Bachelor – as a guest of fiction Forever. Between seasons 1 and 2, Slate argues, the character turned from a light-hearted one into a mock-up.

“In the first season, the guest was a lot of fun, expensive haircuts and a sharp suit with little in between. But in the second one, it’s a punching bag, ”said the publication.

In one program of UnReal Season 2, Graham is late coming out of makeup.

“What is it, getting a chimpanzee face transmission?” Rachel asks. She goes on to say: “If he’s not on his mark in 15 seconds, I’m going to come in there and catch him with the balls and I’m going to put on his mark. ”

The rest of the Forever team starts joking about the guest “showering his balls. Quinn later refers to the character as “our moron.”

While Am Bachelor and Am Bachelorette definitely wins the day in rankings, UnReal one of the best shows ever released – especially in scripted TV. However, depending on how many of the program plot sequences you believe are based on real experience – it may throw your Old boy looking in a different light.
