Fake Famous


Fake Famous

Year released





Fake Famous follows an actress, a fashion designer and a real estate assistant who attempt to become social media influencers by purchasing fake followers and bots to boost their popularity.

Cast and crew

  • Christopher Bailey
  • Osiris Bashir
  • Justine Bateman
Created by tech journalist Nick Bilton, Fake Famous is mainly a social experiment. Bilton and his team take three "average" young people and attempt to turn them into bona fide influencers with the help of eye-catching content and the strategic purchase of fake followers.

At the same time, the documentary explores the influencer economy as a whole and offers a behind-the-scenes look at what being very online really entails. As Fake Famous progresses, viewers get to see how the experiment affects aspiring actress Dominique, fashion designer Chris and real estate assistant Wylie. While one embraces the newfound fame, another wishes to be liked for who he really is.

Given the shortage of docos that explore the influencer industry, Fake Famous is eye-opening and informative overall – despite lacking nuance at times. If you want to learn more about how easy it can be to convince your Instagram followers that you're living your best life (when you're actually not), press "Play".
