The Hills’ big and fake finale episode

By  | 

“The Hills”phenomenon has finally come to an end after four years, six seasons and 102 episodes. Die-hard fans said their goodbyes after a build up of drama and speculated false relationshipscame to an end in the final scenes on the hit MTV show. However, the show had one final twist under it’s belt for viewers.

If you’ve watched any of the previous seasons of “The Hills” you would know there have been rumors floating around about the possibility that the show is fake and staged.

In the final moments of the show, viewers wondered what would become of the on-and-off again relationship between Kristen Cavallari and Brody Jenner. But in the end we saw them go their separate ways, both not wanting to say goodbye as Cavallari packed her bags to leave town.

Just when we thought it was all over and the show would end in its usual way, the music comes in and the cameras float above the city lights and sky, a staged scene appears behind Jenner revealing the big production behind the scenes of the so-called “reality” show.

“Nothing you see on TV is real,” Cavallari, 23 said. “Fans need to understand it’s all entertainment. It’s all in fun. I would never put my close friends or a real relationship on a show.”

In season 6 Conrad turned over the leading-lady spot to her longtime rival Cavallari and the show took a different turn. We watched Cavallari’s ups and downs with Jenner, Lo Bosworth struggled to take the next step with her long-time boyfriend and Stephanie Pratt finally found herself a boyfriend, Josh Hansen.

In the beginning the shows concept seemed sweet and innocent as fans watched Lauren Conrads journey to a new city and people got to see a sneak peak into the life of fashion and L.A. lifestyles.

As the seasons progressed the drama got heavier and the stars were put in the spotlight. The show helped launch the careers of Audrina Patridge, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt and Stephanie Pratt.

All the stars seemed to find new paths at the end of their “Hills” journey. Lo decided to break her rule and move in with her boyfriend. Stephanie Pratt made her relationship with Hansen official and Patridge found a new house on the beach. The biggest step of all was for Cavallari when she chose to move to Europe for a change of pace.

Patridge said it was hard to say goodbye to “The Hills,” “It’s bittersweet. It still hasn’t hit me,” she said. “It’s gonna be hard. Everybody’s gonna have a new path and new beginnings.”

    Yes, the show became fake after Lauren left. The finale episode was laughable as Brody and Kristen were forced to “act” and you can see it in their faces that they’re trying not to laugh. The very end was funny and if the makers think viewers will now believe that the entire show was fake and these people aren’t the moron’s they have been shown as, they’re wrong.

    Clearly it was in their contracts that the show would end painting them all “in a good light”, but I’m sorry no. Heidi and Spencer all fake? No. They had to be removed from the show due to how insane they were getting, and if you watch Spencer in his last scene it’s not faked. If it’s fake then why didn’t they get an ‘ending’, or why didn’t Lauren return to be seen on the “fake set” we see at the end?

    The truth is the makers may have set up certain scenario’s and meetings (people don’t meet in a restaurant for 1 minute conversations when they have telephones), and been manipulative, but most of the reactions and hissy-fits (particularly in the Lauren days) are almost certainly real.

    All the ‘cast’ are fake though in the sense that they don’t lead real lives. They’re job became the show which is not the way it started out.
