For anyone who didn’t watch America’s Most Wanted, they actually hired a guy to stalk a friend of a friend of the producer’s (in other words, someone almost completely unrelated to the show) for a day.
“Here’s our stalker at a phone booth. Notice the girl as she walks right past and DOESN’T EVEN NOTICE HIM”
“Now notice how our stalker is at a table at the same cafe she goes to. AND SHE DOESN’T EVEN NOTICE HIM”
“Our stalker walks RIGHT by her and her friend, but SHE DOESN’T NOTICE HIM.”
Well, gee, I probably wouldn’t notice some plain looking person, either. Maybe if I kept seeing them daily then I’d get paranoid.
After that, the hired stalker goes and knocks on her apartment door with flowers and says “I’ve been following you all day!” and then the host girl freaks her out by saying “If this was a real stalker you could be DEAD by now.” I wonder if that girl will ever be not paranoid.
