If the tele company pays the money, what's to stop you just making something up and getting an easy grand?
I'm pretty sure that has happened with Judge Judy in the past. (Edit: Yes it has http://blogs.findlaw.com/celebrity_j...-cat-case.html)

On Judge Judy there's a tiny disclaimer in the closing credits that states that any money awarded is paid by the production company. i'm not sure if Judge Rinder includes that but it works the same way. The loser doesn't pay a penny.

That's really interesting to know the 'behind the scenes' stuff of how Judge Judy works (and probably Judge Rinder too).
There's an interview with the 'fraudsters' here:

The television company pays what is awarded and both parties receive a fee for appearing on the show.

It is an entertainment show but does feature real cases of the type that would be heard in a small claims court.

That is how I've understood how these shows work. The parties agree to arbitration by Judge Rinder/Judy and agree that they will each receive an appearance fee, out which any damages or money owed can be paid by the loser to the winner.

The TV show pays the damages. That's why they limit it to 5,000, and why you get lots of cases where person A is suing person B for 74.50 for a day's lost wages because a 30 printer failed to turn up(!)
