Dont believe everything you see on tv even if it is so called reality. We dont know what its like in the home when no cams are rolling. I understand your point but honestly you really dont know whats for show and whats real. And if these people really didnt want to make money they wouldnt have agreed to be video taped for a tv show. Normal people usually wouldnt subject their family to being on tv, unless it was to make money and be famous.And them being rednecks is park of the shows entertainment value and Im pretty sure the family knows this and plays to it. So dont feel too bad for them. They wont be lower class for long, that is, if they really are anymore anyway.
