it's not scripted. So it's not fake. This is what the producers say: "Bosses don't know exactly where they're going to go, and they don't know exactly with whom they're going to work, because we want them to [have] an authentic experience." So they are undercover bosses mostly. That's why this has been on tv for so long in tv years.

This is an Awesome show!! It makes me cry every time I watch an episode. It's great to see upper management going out into the trenches and trying out the jobs. Their disguises are fun. The workers stories are heart wrenching and eye opening. The gifting is so much fun to watch and the dressing down of bad employees even better. After the show is over its fun to see the commercials. For example the Donatos Pizza I see the girl who did the show now doing commercials and my image goes back to Undercover Boss and the disguise she wore. Makes me go to Donatos pizza before any of the others. Same with White Castles and Popeyes. Its just a sweet charming fun show!! Everyone should tune in.

@ Jimmy. Your comment proves to me that a lot of workers know about this show and pretend not to know who the new hire is. They put on this great act just to get a big bonus or some other gratuity from a CEO. This show reminds me of the hidden camera commercials. "Look folks, it's a hidden camera"! (Doesn't mean anybody doesn't know it's not there.

I won't give away any secrets to the show.
But let me say this that someone I know through a friend was suppose to be on an episode in the past. There business got a letter stating that a crew would film an episode of a show about someone trying to get a job and they may appear on tv and if they do get called in to be interviewed they may win some prizes.
Well of course they didnt choose the guy that I know through the friend but someone he knows got some stuff from the CEO when at the end he found out it was Undercover Boss.

I still can't figure out after all this time, how people with horrific wigs, fake looking mustaches, etc. don't raise anyone's suspicions when they come in with a whole camera crew regardless of the story. I've never seen such ridiculous disguises.

You will never convince me that after three years on TV, nobody in any company has seen this show and wouldn't be suspicious of a new hire who is followed around by another person who doesn't seem to do anything but just follow. You'd have to be brain dead not be able to connect the dots here and figure out what's going on within five minutes of the new hire showing up.
