I love the show, so I have some comments: first, the town even though has a small population, they have a good tourist trade, it is the wine capital of the east, second only to Napa. Near where I live in Florida, there are towns of 500 people that have a mcdonalds...... Second, most of the show is staged. The incidents at the dairy barn, the conduct at Sonic, the kissing booth, the nightclub, charging to the auctoneers account, and puoring bleach on the pool table was all scripted. The girls are getting paid to embellish the culture shock, the Ledings are getting paid for putting up with them, and everyone involved is getting paid. The show is touted as reality, but it is more entertainment than reality.
