Amish Mafia debuted its second season on Tuesday night, with rumors and speculation swirling on social media about whether or not the show was fake.

A new photo, obtained exclusively by EnStarz, might shed some light into the true reality of the Discovery Channel show. The photo shows star Merlin Miller, the "boss of the Ohio mafia," seemingly out of character, in "non-Amish" clothing, taking a photo with fans at an Ohio shopping mall.

According to EnStarz' sources, Merlin was spotted shopping for shoes and clothes when a few fans of the hit show approached him and asked for a photo. He obliged -- and "even offered to autograph a photo headshot of himself," the source revealed about the encounter, which took place earlier this year.

Discovery's new series Amish Mafia follows the men who protect and maintain peace and order within the Amish community in Lancaster, PA and Holmes County in Ohio. The series follows "Lebanon Levi," along with three of his assistants, who are purported to protect the Amish community in Lancaster County. But a brutal feud brews when Ohio mafia boss Merlin tries to expand his territory in to Lebanon Levi's space.

Speculation about the show's reality has been a topic of conversation since the show first debuted last year. At the beginning of each episode, Amish Mafia starts off with a text panel that explains many of the events portrayed on the show are reenactments; this statement is repeated at the end of the episode in small print.
