people in Detroit really act like wackjobs? Also, has any of these people ever heard of Ebay or Craigslist? I don't know how Pawnshops still even get this much business.

I don't know if it is similar, but with "Storage Wars", the annoying prick guy, dressed in black, (I want to say 'Dave'), tried to expose these 'shop shows' and he got shutdown hard.

His argument was that there was previous knowledge of what the contents of a locker might have to 'encourage' higher bidding and competition. If the other shows are anything like that, it is probably Grade B Shit painted to look like life.

It wouldn't surprise me if either of those haven't heard of craigslist, to be honest.

Also in shows like these, the producers and crew will always work to bring the most ridiculous people to spotlight, and the most drama to the scene.

Just like in the news, reality shows and their cast can be edited to make any story possible.

The best tool that "fantasy-reality" show producers have is the element of the edit. In many cases, all of the scenes that you see as one, linear, coherent storyline are actually highly fragmented, incongruous, and sporadic outtakes, interactions, and coached situations. (Instead of a 'script', the play an emotion, or character trait.)

Also keep in mind that since people know there's a television show, they'll go there and act everything up to try to get on the show.

Maybe the show is a backfired attempt to attract tourism and new blood to the "motor city".

Exactly. They should have filmed in Florida and claimed it was Detroit.

There is no argument.

Almost all of these shows are staged.

Storage wars is a perfect example of a show that shouldn't exist in the first place, and is complete trash all in all.

All of the storage units are 100% staged. Every item in there is placed in there for the sake of the show. All of the "people" in the crowd where the bidding is, are actors. Otherwise they'd have to sign a release or there faces would be blurred. It's staged people. All the "people" that attempt to outbid our trio, are told when to, and how much to bid.

The huge problem with this show, is it gives some poor SOB's the idea that they can go to one of these storage auctions, and bid what little money they have left, and get lucky and make a shit ton of money off the contents in the bin.

Did you know, that the "pawn stars" is complete shit to? That pawn shop exists, in all actuality, but -none- of the characters you see on TV acutally work there. It's a complete farce. All of the people who "come on" trying to pawn or sell extremely rare, or highly valuable items, or well fake treasures, are actors. It's shit, compete shit.

All of these reality shows, pawn stars, hardcore pawn, storage wars, auction hunters etc. There complete shit, every single one of them. None of them are remotely real, all the "profits" and other shit they show is completely fake and gay. It's entertainment.

Maybe in hardcore pawns case, there just fucking dumb ass black folk trying to get by, acting like fools. There probably not actors, but they still act like baboons, not because there on TV, becuase there FUCKING DICK CANOE'S

Hmmmm..... Pwn Stars, hardcore Pwn... Wait! Its a thought! .... .... Is it possible that this is the result of the death of the traditional freak show carnival routine?

Its a nation sized hustle to paint as many people stupid as they possibly can. Then, you have generations of easy marks to take advantage of! If you watch the shows, you think you know, and make stupid purchases!

Its a more intelligent method of putting red paint on a rich idiot's back while he looks for more "man eating chicken"s ... (it is actually a man, eating a chicken.)

All reality tv is staged to some extent.

My mom works in Detroit, some of it looks nice, but lots of the neighborhoods look post-apocalyptic.
