‘Jerry Springer’ Producer Doesn’t Accept Fake Guests

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Jerry Springer Show has seen its share of crazy guests over the years, but head producer Selina Santos isn’t afraid to call a guest’s bluff if she thinks they’re a fake.

Santos – who reveals the secrets of producing the trashy talk show on the new VH1 series, The Springer Hustle – recalls a couple times when guests were so outrageous they even made HER truly question their crazy stories.

For example, Santos once booked a 30-year-old man on the show who claimed to have a weird fetish for eating womens’ feces, tampons, and regurgitated food.

Says Santos: “It was so crazy, I didn’t believe him at first. I called his bluff and told him to send me proof of his fetish and he sent me a video. It was shocking and disgusting, but perfect for Springer!”

Another time, Santos produced an episode dubbed “A Dwarf’s Revenge” where a little person named the “Teeny Genie,” got revenge on women by sleeping with them and then posting the sex tapes on the Internet.

Says Santos: “I totally didn’t believe him, but he sent me proof of his scheme with the ads he used to lure women in and the sex tapes. It was hilarious!”

And while certain crazies really creep her out, Santos admits it’s usually the incest stories that consistently “freak her out.”

The Springer Hustle airs Sunday nights.
