Most of us are probably guilty of polishing our social media accounts. Some, however, don't stop there. They go above and beyond, inventing a totally new self. Luckily, the subreddit r/Instagramreality is dedicated to exposing these fakes, and allow us to see their true colors. With 598k active members, they regularly post new findings that sometimes look too bad to be true. Yet they are. If you're done scrolling and wish to check out more similar pics, fire up our other Instagram vs. Reality posts here and here.
