Here’s a video from Storage Wars of an editing mistake.
Now does this prove that the existence of the show is fake? Not in my book. What do people think happened? That the producers took a shot with boxes stacked up neatly and then ransacked the unit to place some good items. People are sold on the fact that this is what happens in this show. Everything is fixed and the producers set up good items before hand so that the show is more interesting. I have no proof that they don’t do this but I also haven’t seen any proof that they do. My take is that they have a load of footage from various units and we see the best ones. Now what I do find a bit interesting is that sometimes the facility is only auctioning a half dozen units and I’m not really what is being found in other units. The idea that the characters are really actors is absurd. Here’s a video of Dave Hester being a real person.
I would feel like a real dope if the show really was a hoax and set up. It certainly doesn’t feel that way. My main argument regarding these “reality” shows is that these people aren’t that good of actors. They aren’t smart enough to fake these performances. I’ve said this about various shows because Sammie and Ronnie deserve Emmy’s for their performances year after year if it’s all fake. These characters act like they dislike each other and that’s a hard thing to fake so accurately. I have made one conclusion that is truth though. I’m fairly certain Brandi was a stripper in past years. The one episode she says “all we found here were stripper singles,” and most people wouldn’t use that expression without some background. I’ve said before that I really feel like this series only has one strong season because the show will start to compromise it’s integrity during the 2nd season for a variety of reasons discussed here. No matter though, whether it’s real or fake, I still bit so call me part of the dumb masses.
