As if we didn't know...just like 'wrestling'...
“Yuuupp,” Dave Hester has filed a blockbuster lawsuit against Storage Wars, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Hester, one of the show’s best-known personalities who is infamous for his brash “Yuuup” while bidding on storage lockers, charges that the A&E hit show is fake and fired him in retaliation days after he complained about it to network and production company executives.
The suit contains numerous bombshell claims, including that that the network and producers regularly “salt” lockers with valuable items to add drama to the show, rig the bidding and even paid for a female cast member’s plastic surgery to add sex appeal!
“The truth is that Defendants regularly salt or plant the storage lockers that are the subject of the auctions portrayed on the Series with valuable or unusual items to create drama and suspense for the show,” the suit alleges.
YOu knew it was staged...no one else in the 'public' ever won.....they were all standing around....not bidding .......and only the 'stars' were bidding. Turns out that wasn't even the auction.....
Oh well......I watched a few episodes and figured it was rigged......there always seemed to be amazing finds in there.
The other shows that are similar are in the same category....
Most storage lockers sell for $30-300 and most of them aren't worth what folks pay. or barely pay off......too many people chasing them these days.
