I’ll never understand people’s obsessions with spoilers. You invest all your time and energy into a TV series and a character’s journey only to have a friend or media outlet tell you what’s going to happen and spoil the ending!
Spoil literally means to diminish or destroy the value or quality of something.
Why would you want this?!
So, to avoid spoilers leaking out and diminishing or destroying the news of who will win a reality TV show, it’s become common practice for producers to film multiple endings of a series, with footage showing both finalists coming out as the winner, confetti and all.
But many would question the authenticity of the show when this happens: couldn’t producers just pick how they want the show to end then?
Others just think the whole scenario is cruel to the contestants and families, and MasterChef judge Matt Preston actually agrees, although, he also thinks being able to shoot far in advance results in better quality coverage.
Take a listen to Matt speaking with the Hit Networks Heidi, Xavier & Ryan this morning:
