After they film the Pulp Fiction room checkburning and make you do your exit interview, they put all the guys who stay in the big bedroom and lock the door, and let you upstairs to pack your stuff (this is when I left Eric a note and snuck in the big bedroom and flipped off everyone who was staying, telling them with a smile to have fun for me, and that they were all losers too... they just didn't know it yet .
Sometime after we filmed the fake cab ride, and while in the van on the way to LAX, one of the guys pieced together the whole plot, and then spilled his theory for us, which we confirmed with our own suspicions. No one told us what really happened; it was really just the deductive power of one of the contestants, combined with the clues we all had that made us pretty sure we knew the whole story.
Turns out we were right... and you can pretty much guess what else is going to happen on the show using the same techniques.
To make it clear how dedicated the people behind the show were to keeping it all secret, after one of the first guys dismissed broke down and cried in his exit interview, they told him not to take it seriously, that the girl wasn't what she seemed, but they couldn't tell him why, or what they meant by it. They could have saved him a lot of pain by just telling him it was a game, but they stuck to their guns. I thought that was a pretty sh*tty thing to do, and still do.
