I have heard from people before on this board that a lot of the HGTV shows (like house hunters, for example) are totally staged. Is property virgins fake, too?
I was watching it tonight with DH and it was a young woman who was looking in south jersey and works in philly. I grew up in south jersey and they were naming actual towns and the houses looked like it could be in that region. BUT THEN - sandra meets the buyer for lunch to prepare their offer, and the footage is of a restaurant in Boston (Jacob Wirth). The interior looks exactly like the one in Boston and they show Sandra exiting the restaurant - and its freaking Boston.
How annoying. At least make the cities right!
Unless I am wrong and there is also a Jacob Wirth in Philly with an identical facade to the one in Boston - which I doubt, its a pretty famous landmark in Boston as its one of the oldest restaurants (from 1868 or something).
