It seems that one of the most obnoxious contestants on the show is not that bad in real life.
Netflix's Perfect Match was released less than a month ago, but people have already dived headfirst into this dating reality show, which pits contestants from the streaming giant's other reality shows against each other.
The goal is quite simple – to create a perfect couple with another contestant and stay together until the finale. Suffice it to say, it's not as easy as it sounds, as everyone wants to win and some are willing to use questionable ways to achieve their goal.
One such person is Francesca, one of the brightest yet most hated contestants on the show. From her very first scene, she seemed like a trouble maker, constantly getting into quarrels with other people, changing partners and trying to wreak total havoc among the contestants. And she succeeded, creating so much drama that it became almost impossible for the audience and other contestants to ignore her.
People hated her, but still followed her exploits as she tried to break up other couples to ensure her victory. But why was she behaving like that?
According to Francesca, her behavior had nothing to do with her character or lust for victory, but rather with the demands of the contract.
The star admitted that she plays the role of trouble maker on Perfect Match and was paid for it. While this revelation calls into question the authenticity of the series, most fans are not surprised, arguing that all reality shows use such tactics to attract a larger audience.
Despite this revelation, many people are still angry with Francesca, arguing that receiving money for behaving the way she did is not an excuse, but simply proves once again what kind of person she really is.
While fans were quite disappointed that Francesca was just sticking to the script, many rightly pointed out that the other contestants were doing exactly the same as they were all trying to win the competition. Perhaps the current era of reality TV is simply not possible without loads of contrived drama and carefully written scripts?
