Is Urban Tarzan the fakest reality show ever?

The acting is HORRIBLE!! A cough syrup-drinking chimp who wields a loaded gun? How contrived. How stupid does Spike think we are? Every house they go to is faker than the last. They need to get better actors.

What a joke, this guy is stupid and I could do rescues better than him. He and his idiot assistant are a joke and I can't believe they will keep this show on SPIKE!! I liked spike tv in the past but now I think its showing stupid stuff and not a good network anymore.

Unbelievably stupid fake show. Is anybody watching it? Realy?

by Anonymousreply 603/31/2013

It is awful! I just saw an episode over the weekend.

As poorly scripted and acted as it is, I was curious how they scripted the capture of a king cobra (I turned the channel at commercial before he was supposedly going to get bit).

When i first heard the name of the show i thought it would be a kool show, watched one show about the dogs humping while they are looking for a lion in la. wow just plane stupid.

Urban Tarzan and worlds worst tenant is a haven for bad actors and writers. Getting kicked in my sack would get more of a reaction than watching these shows ever again. At first I thought it might be some skit from a comedy show but then realized the bad actors were trying to be serious. I give these two shows 5 out of 5 on the shit meter.

I saw an episode of Worst Tenant Ever that was really insulting to Asians. They were investigating complaints of increased foot traffic in an apartment. They found that this Asian couple was hanging roasted ducks in the laundry room and yelled at the couple saying how this was unsanitary. Then they found that the couple was running a restaurant in an empty apartment. They busted in and told all the people eating to go home and told them this wasn't a real restaurant.

Come on, how realistic is it that people would go to an apartment and think it is a restaurant? And no other tenants would notice them hanging ducks in the laundry room?

Then the show had the gall to do an update saying the couple took the ducks down, closed down the restaurant and moved out.

by Anonymousreply 3004/03/2013

lol Anon was right about the same lady being on both shows. I thought I was trippin out when I saw that.

The acting alone is an indication that its fake. With World's Worst Tenants, Its at least funny.

I just got cable after 2 years today and this was one of the first shows I saw tonight after watching WWT, and it was so horrible. I am in agreement with calling it "reality" if it isnt.

Plus you have to think, who would sign their face to be seen if they just got kicked out of their nasty house? I still will watch WWT for the entertainment. Plus cause I actually used to know some of the people like the tenants in the show. So its interesting to see 'what if'

by Anonymousreply 3104/03/2013

Why don't they just label this show as "Re-enactments" instead of "Reality"? Dateline does re-enactments with actors and it's fine. But to call it reality is insulting and infuriating.

by Anonymousreply 3204/03/2013

It is fake...but i just finished watching two episodes of the show! If you can move past that the show is fake then it is a good show! Every single show out there is scripted so why hate on this one? And why do you guys want it to be real so bad? YOU SICK PEOPLE

by Anonymousreply 3304/03/2013

It's not that we want it to be real so bad. We would have no problem with it if this was presented as a sketch comedy series or a sitcom. Even if they presented it as a fake reality show like Reno 911 or The Real Househusbands of Hollywood, that would be perfectly acceptable. But to pass this off as a reality show?? The FCC should get involved.

Even though The World's Worst Tenants is a fake show, its still more entertaining than the Urban Tarzan. This is my second season of The World's Worst Tenant. They really need to take that Urban Tarzan crap off TV. I mean, really?! If it were that many wild animals running amuck wouldn't this be on the news??? And even so, what kind of irresponsible people are these that let these animals break free?? This show is so fake that even the animals are acting. Come on Spike....please take this ridiculous crap off...NOW!!! Most of us would buy bullshit but only if we knew the bull wasn't acting.....

Who cares whether its fake or not and how the acting is. Its worth it just to look at Urban. Goodlooking man. Im a sucker for guys with long hair anyway. Oh, and just so you know all reality shows are fake. Hollywood isnt capable of telling a true story. They have to add drama to everything.

There's a difference between setting up a situation to let it play out on its own (sending all the housewives to Paris, setting up a lunch date with 2 rivals, etc.) and making them memorize and recite lines. If they're memorizing and reciting lines then it's a scripted show, not a reality show.

I can see him finding a big sewer rat but agator in a pool, and the hot gurl n fat old bald guy lol.

by Anonymousreply 4904/16/2013

The reason the acting is bad on these shows is because they are NOT FUCKING actors. You dumbasses I have met the real Tarzan at an animal convention he is a real animal specialist and his business is in the same city that I live in. He legally changed his name to urban Tarzan. As for the rest of these "fake shows" they are called reality and not actor shows. Go on live tv and see if you are great actors you ungrateful jerks.

Yeah, I finally caught on that this just can't be real.

I believe the majority of the posts hating on the show were written by the same person. It just is so many saying the same thing in a very similar sounding writing style. trolling. Yes, the shows are dumb, but that doesn't mean it's not entertaining. Everyone enjoys a little mindless entertainment every so once in a while. Also I gotta laugh at the post wondering if spike tv could be sued for their fake reality tv... Hahaha seriously? Sued for what? Breaking a format that had a poor definition to begin with? Should producers be sued for MASH or Arrested Development because they are comedies that don't follow the traditional sitcom set up? Sue for definitions! Hahahah hilarious.

This show is so funny. I just watched the episode with a raccoon in the attic of some guys that were recording a rap session. First, the big guy was up in the attic and his leg went through the roof and the guys on the couch started laughing. Then the rapper started rapping while they were up in the attic and he was terrible. He was the worse rapper ever. It was so funny I couldn't stop laughing.

Don't forget the COPS with BEARDS in the lion episode, every cop in California must be on a shaving waiver. Then there is the time they wouldn't let the camera see the cougar that they tranquilized. Also how to they always have the perfect cage that takes up the whole van i.e. the alligator crate or rolling wire cage, when they get these calls on the road. It must be a magical van with endless space.

by Anonymousreply 7204/24/2013

When they were after the wolf in last night's episode I thought the tranquilizer gun jamming was a nice touch. The wolf appeared very viscous however.

Urban T "rapping " was hilarious. Show is a comedy in my book.

This is what I hate about the show. If you're going to an animal show you can't make up the animals behavior that contradicts their natural behavior. Imagine if Jack Hannah was telling people that wolves could bust through walls or that elephants can read.

What's the most offensive to me is the trauma they're causing to real animals in these horrific reenactments. Torturing animals for 'entertainment', even if it's meant to be comedy (which is bogus as the show is billing itself as real) is sick. That poor horse in the strip club. Anyone who knows even a small amount about horses could recognize that the horse was being taunted to pin it's ears back and rear. Ugh. So disgraceful.

If they were going to use 2 different horses for the show, they should have at least used ones that looked alike. The horse that runs through the bar when they first came in had white socks, the horse in the dressing room, did not.

Capturing and repossessing wild animals is a legitimate business, and it's a very difficult, stressful and respectable industry. The fact that they are passing this off as real is disrespectful to the people who really care about animal abuse as well as the intelligence of their viewers.

Maybe it's starting to sink in now that most people here figured out that Urban Tarzan is scripted and fake. Just like all the other so called reality shows including one of my favorites, Duck Dynasty. Let me see if I can name off a few others, Gold Rush, Storage Hunters, Storage Wars, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Lizard Lick Towing, Repo Games... Man I could go on and on. But bottom line is it is suppose to entertain while selling us products from commercials. Anyway, I kinda of like Urban Tarzan especially the girl Jasmine. You she has been on other shows in the past. Anyway, you people shouldn't get worked up over T.V. entertainment. If you don't like it don't watch it.

I thought that Operation Repo was the worst fake show of all time but this one takes the cake. I think that Urban Tarzan is Criss Angel's brother. I think they get all those animals from some movie studio ranch in Burbank or somewhere like that. I know for sure that one of the fake homeowners was Old McDonald from that spelling bee where he said "ei-ei-oo," then he said "dagnabbit." Probably the worst thing I ever saw was when that tiger knocked over the porta-potty, and the midget and his tall partner came running around the corner.
