"There is much to enjoy. Kale and Sykes are great interviewers, unafraid of asking tricky questions, and they land some excellent chats with the right people. They are comprehensive: grilling contestants, commentators, producers, psychotherapists."
James Marriot • The Times UK • May 20, 2022
"Unreal, hosted by the journalists Sirin Kale and Pandora Sykes, is an entertaining and depressing survey of the history of reality television. Unreal summons a melancholy parade of reality TV’s victims."
