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.
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.
