This video is from 2007 and was posted on “VideoJug”… Mark Cronin answers some basic questions regarding how “reality” television is produced.
Mark Cronin specializes in shows that exist within a controlled environment. He produced Surreal Life, Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and lots of other “celeb-reality” shows. By ‘set piece’ Mark is also talking about The Real World house/set. It makes them interact and it’s also a functional ‘set’ complete with lighting and rules of interaction… kind of like when all the RHONJ cast went to the Catskills… except for MeGo and JoGo.
Cannot recall which season it was, but a crew member working on ‘The Real World’ on MTV was fired for interacting with one of the cast members (off camera!). “Reality” TV has come a long way since then!

“Gary Lico, CEO of CableU recalled attending a television conference last year (2010) where both a producer and a network executive, in separate sessions, talked about recruiting people with bipolar disorders for reality shows.”
