I was told last night by an antique dealer that Storage Wars, American Pickers, and Pawn Stars were rigged.
Please don't tell me that the antiques and collectibles were planted in the storage bins.
These shows are a direct result of how wonderful our economy is. The sad part is, there isn't anything else on TV worth a crap to watch.
Storage Wars HAS to be rigged. How can the same four buyers keep getting the storage rooms? Only good thing is that people watching might discover they have items of value at home.
Pickers is not rigged. The arrival and leaving of the property may be staged to get the camera where they need it to get the shot, but the actual picking is real. They came to my small town last year and did a pick.
They are all staged to some extent. I think these you mention are some of the LEAST staged or at least portray what really happens.
