What seems to be debated about these shows more than anything is that whether or not these shows are true reality or scripted reality.

I had never laughed more during a commercial for any upcoming TV show, so I had to check it out, even though I had no idea who Rob or Big were. The show follows the daily mishaps of skateboarding mogul Rob Dyrdek and his personal bodyguard, Christopher Boykin…aka Big Black.
