How to spot a phony photo-op

Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas and the loser "pro-snowboarder" she chose as her fiance (Jesse Czincsak) have been doing staged shots with Pacific Coast News for almost a year now. They're running out of ideas though, and the couple lack that certain star quality to pull it off with campy aplomb. When you see things like washing the car at a public wash with only a bikini on, or holding up watermelons chest high at the local grocery store, you know it's photo-op desperation. When Brandon Davis did photo ops for money with then girlfriend Mischa Barton, the last set they did was kissing at the Trevi fountain in Rome, that, and playing croquet in Hawaii.
