Anyhow, some of the guys who worked for The Mystery Method back in 2006 when todays Dr. Phil episode was filmed now work for Mehow. Two of them are DJ Fuji and Kamouflage.

Fuji shared his insight on the episode in a recent Mehow newsletter. I suggest signing up for his newsletter if you yet haven’t (and sign up for mine too while you’re at it).

Here’s some excerpts from it:

“… I was surprised to hear that the producers of the Dr. Phil show decided to even air that show - as it was filmed way back in 2006!

Here’s how it all happen.

You see, Kamouflage and I got invited to help tape this infield segment for the Dr. Phil show.

Now keep in mind, I was relatively new at the time (little less than a year of experience) and was running pretty much pure Mystery Method… as I had not met Mehow yet.

And, it didn’t seem like a bad idea at the time… but what a mistake. …

Wow… its crazy thinking how different we were back in 2006.

Now, let me tell you now… as I know this question is bound to come-up:

Yes, a lot of it was indeed staged, but the infield portion was real, albeit some of the girls were planted. …

The live taping was pretty brutal, too.

Ironically… they used basic NLP anchoring to manipulate the formerly receptive audience into hating us… for being manipulative.

Then, they brought out a woman with a sob story who had nothing to do with the community and used the emotions she elicited to paint us in a poor light.

If you ever see the footage… you’ll see - logically, it made no sense… but it emotionally riled the audience… they hated us!

It was a good attempt by those of us on the show to give a glimpse into what we’re all about.

Unfortunately, the producers chose to create controversy and drama… you know how it is - it’s all about the ratings.

Lesson learned.”

Very interesting!

I give him credit for admitting that a lot of it was staged and planted. One has to wonder how much of the “live” footage or audio we see is.

It sounds like what I expected was going to happen happened. Dr. Phil is very text book and predictable. He gets some guys on the show that do something controversial in the eyes of females and he just grills on them. He uses his Texas one-liners on the guests and I’m sure the crowd is prodded by stage workers to clap (or boo).

These guys HAD to know what they were getting themselves into. They should have also been able to defend any NLP attack on them. Hell, Ross Jeffries teaches NLP!

I think the episode was created to push the release of Dr. Phil’s Love Smart book based on the time line and the ads for the book today on his site but I don’t understand why it didn’t air earlier. What a steaming pile of bullshit that book is sure to be! I might actually read it, I’m sure it will be good for a few laughs.

    I was actually shocked at how the show played out. Dr. Phil was very sympathetic with the existence of the community as it was being portrayed by Savoy and the Don, and even the audience was buying into it (even though I do not think the Savoy and the Don were portraying what they teach honestly), that is until Ross Jeffries made his appearence. Instead of being positive and portraying his teachings in a positive light, he decided to criticize the teachings of the rest of the community and the whole thing deteriorated because of it.

    Thanks for the review YSB!

    Leave it to Ross to stir the pot.

    I wonder if there was more footage shot than what aired based on what Fuji described. Maybe they cut it to be more accepting of the seduction community since it has become more mainstream since the show was shot.

    I guess if Dr. Phil was cool with the seduction community I owe him an apology for being so hard on him this week.

    Ahhh… fuck him. He still sucks :)

    I just watched the episode and I have to agree with YSB.

    The first segment with Savoy and the Don went really good. Dr. Phil, the girls on stage and the audience were in agreement with them. Savoy did a great job on explaining the techniques, why they work and why it’s ok to use them. I was quite impressed.

    The segment with Ross Jeffries definitely stirred the pot and I was a little pissed to see him making attacks on TMM and the rest of the community. He also came off as a bit of a douchebag. It seemed like his goal wasn’t to put seduction in a good light but to give his company a competitive advantage over the rest of the community.

    The third segment had nothing to do with the community and it’s unfortunate that it was even on the same show.

    Great video.

    I just posted a more in-depth write up on reality method . com.

    There is something to be said for the fact that the community is getting more mainstream exposure. Here’s hoping it forces us to get a little bit more real.
