People claiming to have auditioned for, or taken part in, different TV shows have shared what they claim to be 'secrets' from behind the scenes.

Taking to Reddit, someone posed the question: "People who have been on t.v. game shows, what are some 'behind the scenes' secrets that regular viewers don't know about?"

Answers came back from people who were claiming to have appeared (or at least gone on) popular shows such as The X Factor, MasterChef, Bachelorette and 'a tattoo competition show'...

The person who said they went on The X Factor wrote: "You don't go to the celebrity judges first you go in front of some 'off camera' judges.

"So every terrible and horrible singer you see on the show has already been told they are better than the many talented ones not deemed 'TV worthy'." Something tells me this person didn't get through to meet Cowell himself...

Another person who claimed they went on MasterChef, added: "The dishes the MasterChef contestants make are normally stone cold by the time they get to the tasting table, so the judges usually taste the elements of each dish as they're walking around the kitchen during the cooking stage.

"This allows them to have some idea how the finished dish will taste and to see the contestants' proficiency with kitchen equipment."

Talking about The Bachelorette, another Reddit user commented: "I was at a group date for The Bachelorette. As you can imagine, the show is heavily produced. They only aired about five percent of what actually happened on the date.

"I have a really reactive face, so they used a bunch of my reactions in the show, but they were completely out of context because they cut all of the actual drama out of the date, and only aired the vanilla stuff.

"So one contestant says something like 'women are always right' and they show me making this gasping face, that's totally out of place haha."

The person speaking about the unnamed tattoo show, wrote: "My wife got a tattoo on a tattoo competition show.

"They gave her headphones to wear while she was being tattooed, but she wasn't allowed to actually plug them in and listen to music. Pure product placement lol."

LADbible has contacted The X Factor, MasterChef and The Bachelorette for comment.
