How To Get a Gold Medal in the Paparazzo - Reality Check Mission in GTA 5

After Beverly and Franklin’s first meeting at Eclipse Boulevard in West Vinewood, the paparazzi sought Franklin’s help in getting photos of several VIPs and celebrities such as Miranda Cowen, Princess Georgina, and Poppy Mitchell.

Franklin only agreed to do the jobs in the first place because Beverly promised him a cut of the money Beverly gets from the photos. However, after securing the photos of Princess Georgina in the act of buying drugs, Franklin had a building suspicion about Beverly.

Paparazzo – Reality Check is the final Beverly mission in GTA 5. We have outlined everything you need to know about Reality Check and how you can get a Gold Medal for completing the mission in GTA5.

Paparazzo – Reality Check Synopsis

After going through the trouble of snooping around to take photos of the Princess and sprinting across town chasing after Poppy Mitchell, Franklin has decided to look for Beverly and ask him for his share of the yield.

Franklin’s search takes him to West Vinewood, where he and Beverly first met. Franklin spots Beverly at The Generic Hotel along Eclipse Boulevard in West Vinewood. Beverly and his crew are shooting a reality show, and Franklin shows up, causing Beverly to miss the shot.

Beverly blames Franklin for ruining the shot, but Franklin barks back at Beverly, telling him that he wouldn’t get those VIP photos if it were not for him. Beverly simply ignores this fact and tells Franklin how he doesn’t even remember Franklin doing all those jobs for him.

Franklin cuts to the chase and asks Beverly for his share. Beverly cuts Franklin off, saying he and his crew are trying to work. Beverly shoos Franklin away, telling him to call Beverly’s Agent instead.

At this point, you can either walk away and leave Beverly alone or pull out your rocket launcher/sticky bomb to blow up Beverly and his crew.

Ending Things With A Bang

Franklin will be happy to do anything for anyone as long as it makes him feel accomplished while making some money. Beverly gave Franklin hope of getting some decent money from doing paparazzi work, which was why Franklin was so willing to snoop around to take pictures of VIPs and celebrities around Los Santos.

Beverly completely ignored Franklin when the latter asked for his share of the deal; it is up to you (Franklin) to choose Beverly’s fate. Of course, if you are looking for a Gold Medal from completing this mission in GTA 5, you will have to blow up Beverly and his crew to get the Explosive Action! Gold Medal Objective.
