If you watch the very start of the show, it always says: “The Amish Church denies the existence of the Amish Mafia. To ensure the safety of the innocent Amish, select re-enactments of events must be used.” Most fans think this means that they might do that with a few things, but the more information that comes out it sounds like they do it all the time.
Jolin fought against someone in the fight, but they didn't even tell fans who it was at all. He wanted to submit the person and acted like he had fought before. The author of the York Blog was able to get Discovery to admit to him it wasn't the actual fight that fans saw on TV. When he asked about it, they said: “The fight is a recreate since the actual barn fights are sporting events that would need to be sanctioned.” Now they won't comment anymore on it because they know that fans are upset and see that the show is not real.
"Amish Mafia" is obviously fake and this is just one more example. A store owner already said that she is not really protected by Lebanon Levi. The show even got the name of the police department wrong. Are you shocked to hear that "Amish Mafia" is not real? Sound off in the comments below.
