Is this real? Because it sounds so fake! Did they really meet these people or they just make it up?
Eva Longoria's story sounded especially fake.
PM me! I will PM back with the story of my life.
I think they're real people, because I feel like I have seen interviews like.. years later where they show that "blah blah farmer from Ohio" is still struggling or whatever.
But yeah, it seems fake and it's an overused tactic
