Publisher's Clearing House commercials ...are the winners actors or real people?

so i was having this rather inane debate with my mom, of course being me, i am sure that doesn't sound to uncommon to y'all.

so she claims that the PCH people that win are all actors AND that the houses and environments are on soundstages.

i claimed they are real people, but are probably prepped before hand and that the houses and all that stuff is real and genuine, but again obviously prepped and somewhat staged...

so real or actors?

You are correct, they're the winners. PCH says those moments aren't staged, but I have my doubts.

They are real people, but I wouldn't be surprised if they stage the prize patrol "surprises".

I think I read somewhere that they are real winners, but they may do multiple takes of the surprise after the real one to get a better angle, reaction, light, whatever.
