Workpoint's productions have from time to time been the subject of various controversies. Popular programmes including Fan Pan Tae and Todsagun Game have seen criticisms of inaccuracy and allegations of being rigged.[citation needed] In 2012, the second season of Thailand's Got Talent became subject of intense criticism when a contestant who displayed her breasts on stage was revealed to have been paid by the organisers in order to boost ratings.[5]
