Trivia

Ashton Kutcher jokes that he's not allowed to be "punked", but in fact it has happened twice - the first time was a test run by producers before the show aired (he was constantly asked to walk through an X-ray machine at MTV offices). The second time occurred when Britney Spears got Kutcher's staff to turn against him. But plan backfired. Ashton realized what was going on, and got Britney to turn on his Punk'd crew. See more »

Just Plain Stupid
6 June 2003 | by BoutdatDoughSee all my reviews

C'mon, guys-ya gotta know that it's all fixed!! You really think these celebrities are unaware of what's going on? If you ask me, most of these so called reality shows are staged, and this one definitely is. I saw a recent episode-the one with one of The Backstreet Boys and a girl named Trishell from MTV's Real World. They were trying to enter a security building, and the security guard kept harassing them-making them take off their shoes, raise their arms, scanning all between their legs-the Backstreet dude even pulled his pants down several times! Now, what celebrity do you know is going to allow themselves to be humiliated like that in public? They all have this-"Don't you know who the hell I am?!" attitude, so I just knew that this was all staged for the fun of MTV's gullible audience.

And, c'mon, even if it weren't staged, wouldn't you think that the celebrity would have at least HEARD of this show or SEEN it on television already?!!!

The only one who's PUNK'D is the audience.
