What? 'Storage Wars" is Faked?? Say it isn't so

Well Dave Hester says it is and has filed suit!

That show is about as real as Brandi's breasts.

Well that was an interesting read.

Here is a tip..... all reality shows are scripted and fake.

I can't wait to pass this on to my sis, thanks.

I think this is becoming the norm for most, but not all, "reality" programming. Life is just too unpredictable to provide, in most cases, a steady diet of entertaining material to fill show after show. If you look, there are often quick notices flashed at the end of many of the shows that indicate that parts of the show were "re-inactments". Pretty much all of the shows involving employee stakeouts or other examples of showing people doing bad thing are 100% so-called "re-inactments of actual events". Otherwise, you'd have to believe that the employee stealing money out of the till actually consented to allowing that security camera footage to be used.

This is exactly why the only reality series I have EVER watched is Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet.

I am certain the producers did not pay Flower a cool million to get bitten by a puff adder and then die! It REALLY happened.

I wouldn't put it past them to put a meercat and the puff adder in the vicinity of each other to increase drama.

I think they would prefer to say their shows feature "reactments".

Operation Repo makes it clear in their opening about that.

And if pause your DVR at the end of the any of the Judge shows, they make it clear that they apply "general law".

I watched a Judge Joe Brown where old Joe blew it. California case, used car that would not pass smog. His ruling, used car sales are all "as-is". Well, in California, this is one exception to as is sales.

"When you sell a vehicle in California, the seller is responsible for getting a smog certificate prior to completing the sale."

The thing that bothers me about storage wars is when they get into their units and start "counting up" how much they can make from the stuff. We can't believe that they will end up getting anywhere near what they say things are worth. We always say that we'd love to see what they actually sold their merchandise for.

Flower dies!

My kids got really into this show but we only saw 1 season or so because it was on Netflix.

I really enjoyed that show.

So true... I was a vendor at a local bridal show. For the 2 hours before it opened while we were all setting up the "Glam Fairy" show from Style (i think) was fully set up and doing complimentary hair trials for supposed brides. They were actually 3 actresses. The fairies staged the same argument over some guy in 9 different takes all while laughing in between, there was no argument.

totally fake, totally scripted...but fun to watch the taping none the less.

DH watches that show and I pointed the article out to him. I can't believe Dave Hester thinks this surprises anyone.

I told DH if Dave was not on the show it would be much more watchable. Every time he calls out yup ( or whatever word he uses) I cringe and leave the room.
