I don't know, but I am suspious of all those reality shows after noticing in the opening of the show Operation Repo that everything is a reenactment, and then looking up all the "repo" people, and finding out that only one had ever been a licensed repo agent, and that was Lou and his license expired 15 years ago!
But if Pawn Stars is real, it's pretty cool.

Who is Chumley? He's the most interesting man in the world....... oh wait, that's not him........ He's the reason I watch that show- him and the Old Man.

People who have been in the shop have said Chumlee (Austin Russell) was about the only one there who was actually nice to the customers. For the most part, they were not impressed by the shop. It's still an interesting show.

Why get all excited about something as silly as a fake celebrity? Or getting a tag?

I think the whole Chumlee character is just that, a character. He's supposed to be some sort of comic relief. Honestly, I think the producers used Mikey from the OCC as a model for Chumlee. Did you see the episode with the rolling duck toy and at the end, Chumlee was rolling it down a hallway? It just felt so contrived. The Old Man gives me the creeps. The only person I like is Steve? Is that his name? The main guy. I don't even like this show but I've been stuck watching it because DH loves this show.

I am very skeptical about any reality show anymore.
Like the PP about the repo people, who aren't really repo people, Project Runways winners and losers are not picked by who you think they are. Those judges, Heidi included, have no say so in who stays and who goes. I was mad when I found this out because I thought Project Runway was a real reality show. I think about the only authentic show on tv anymore is Cops.

I watch PR once in a while and I had no idea. Who DOES pick them, someone in fashion and marketing? I'm very curious because sometimes people are booted out who should stay and the ones that stay are usually the ones who might not have talent but who have drama or some other force behind them.

Yes the grandson. I looked it up one day because I find him hilarious. I put youngest son because Rick is the old mans son. It gets confusing just typing it
