"If I'd known I could call my agent to call their agent and stage it all, my life would have been so much easier."
Beverly Felton

Paparazzo - Reality Check is a Strangers and Freaks mission in Grand Theft Auto V given by Beverly Felton to protagonist Franklin Clinton.


After taking pictures of Poppy Mitchell and the Princess Georgina, Franklin meets Beverly in front of The Generic Hotel in West Vinewood to give him the photos and collect his money ($251). However, Beverly is already filming his reality show and is no longer interested in the photos. Franklin gets angry, but Beverly simply states that Franklin needs to go away so Beverly can continue making his show.

After the cutscene ends, the player has the choice to kill Beverly or spare him. The mission ends once Franklin kills Beverly or Franklin leaves the scene.

Mission Objectives

  • Kill or spare Beverly

Gold Medal Objectives

  • Explosive Action! - Kill Beverly and his crew with one shot
    • Franklin should use any kind of explosive to get all of them at the same time. Be careful, as some explosives will give the targets enough time to run away from them, avoiding the blast radius. A rocket launcher, homing launcher, sticky bomb will perform the task flawlessly.

Possible Deaths


  • The fact that the objective to get the gold medal in this mission requires the player to kill Beverly and his crew could suggest that they are canonically supposed to die in this mission.
  • If the player kills Beverly without exploding him inside of the car it is possible to get his $251 from his body.
  • The player can steal Beverly's car, resulting in Franklin saying it was being taken "as payment" and Beverly giving chase.
  • Sometimes if Franklin decides to kill Beverly, we will say, "One way or another, motherfucker, I'm getting paid!"
