I watched an episode of Penn & Teller: Fool Us where a magician fools Penn and Teller and the only explanation that seems possible to anyone is that the randomly chosen audience member involved is a "plant" (someone predisposed to the trick).
- Penn and Teller claim that they're confident that the audience member involved is not a plant.
- I've heard that plants are not allowed in the show.
- I've heard that to avoid tricks that involve breaking the show's rules, the magician must explain to the show's producer (or a magician employee perhaps) how the trick works before hand, privately.
So, can anyone confirm whether or not that third bullet is accurate?
