Is it just me, or are the "prisoners" on the show fake? It seems to me that they're all just actors, or social workers, or something along those lines. Like, I don't see the authorities trusting prisoners with kids. Seems to me that there's a more than likely chance you would have a hostage situation on your hands if these guys were real.
And the kids they have on the show...

How is that?
This show just seems fake.
I know prisoners do programs like these to get reduced sentences, but I don't see these prisoners doing the crimes they say their guilty of. Like, you're not going to let two convicted murderers corner a kid, what if the kid snaps and punches one of them? If those prisoners hit the kid, there would be a hugeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee lawsuit.
Seems to me the show is something parents show to teenagers to make sure they don't goof.

1. Tell them they're going to jail for a year.
2. Have them in jail for a two weeks with a good population (no violent offenders).
3. After two weeks (so the hopelessness sinks in) ask them if they learned a lesson.
Done and done.
