How real is reality TV? We got into that and much more with editor Marina Catala who edits for NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
Catala’s other credits include: The Amazing Race, Beauty and the Geek, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, Pros Versus Joes, and many more.
So what does a reality editor do? How long does it take to edit an episode? Do you need to be in a union? What is manipulated and what is real? Why do reality shows have writers? Why was the Amazing Race was her most challenging show? All these questions and more (including the craziest example of footage she COULD NOT use in an episode!) get answered by Catala.
