What's up Reddit!

My name is Ken Fuchs. I am fortunate to be the director of shows like Shark Tank, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Family Feud, Celebrity Family Feud, Love Connection, and Deal or No Deal.

I’ve worked my entire career in unscripted and variety television. My favorite thing to do is direct live television specials, overseeing an expansive camera crew and amplified production atmosphere. I direct the Bachelor specials, including all of the weddings, “The Bachelor: After The Final Rose,” and “The Bachelor: Women Tell All."

I was also fortunate to receive a 2018 Emmy Nomination for my directing in Shark Tank. I am blessed to work with so many great teams across all of my projects.

Proof: On my twitter here!

I’ll do my best to answer as many questions as I can! Ask Me (Almost) Anything! AMAA!

EDIT: Thanks so much for joining. I have to head out for now, but I will check back later on the thread to answer some more questions!

What's up with Kanye's permanent smile on episode 1 of Celebrity Family Feud? He seems like a nice guy.

He was so nice and so excited and happy to be on Feud. It was one of my favorite episodes to direct.

What are the most memorable moments you’ve been part of? Have you been in the room for any really uncomfortable or emotional scenes? I’m think of breakups like Becca and Arie or Peter and Rachel. Were you there and does it ever feel intrusive?

We are not in the room, as we are in our mobile set up looking at the cameras. Everyone knows we are making a television show, in the end we try to be the least intrusive we can, while also doing our jobs. I think these moments underscore the authenticity of the show. By that point in the season, the cast is also less aware of our presence.
