22 Surprising Things You Never Knew About "Geordie Shore"
As told by cast members Gaz and Marty.
We sat down with Geordie Shore stars Gary "Gaz" Beadle and Martin "Marty" McKenna to find out what really goes on behind the scenes.
There's a reason the opening credits are rarely updated.
Gaz: Everyone on the original cast, that's our reaction to getting on the show, that's why they don’t change it because that's the original reaction.
Marty: What, on camera? I got told over the phone.
Anna is a business owner but she isn't actually the boss of the Geordies.
The cast don't get paid for the jobs they do.
They really do go out A LOT.
Yes, they actually are as drunk as they seem on TV. It's not an act.
And it turns out they're not sick of clubbing and still do it regularly when they're not filming.
The cast don't give a shit about having sex on TV, and forget they're even being filmed.
There's actually A LOT of paperwork involved with bringing someone back to the house, and guests need to have their passport.
No one cleans the shag pad while they're living in the house, not even the cleaners.
The green screen reactions are all real reactions, they're just filmed hours, or sometimes weeks later.
Nothing is scripted.
The Geordies are told in detail what to do every day.
They also have their personal phones confiscated and they don't have access to internet in the house, which means they're cut off from daily news.
They have their bank cards taken off them, so they have to ask to purchase things, including food.
They get in trouble for fighting and can be fined a lot of money for hitting each other.
And when they smash stuff, they have to pay for it.
Before everyone knew the show was going to be filled with sex and cursing, Gary's mum told everyone, including the neighbours, to tune in.
Gaz and Marty don't watch the show because they've lived it.
The camera crew is made up of about six people, which means there are usually a lot more people in the room than you're seeing on TV.
Due to a barrier and security, tourists can’t visit the house in Newcastle, but the cast were swamped with fans outside their home in Australia.
When it comes to getting ready for a night out, Scott’s the worst offender for taking too damn long.
But they really do feel like a family.
