'Storage Wars' star Dave Hester says show is fake, suing, report says
Dave Hester , one of the show’s cast members, has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the show, according to RadarOnline.

In his lawsuit, Hester is claiming the series is fake, and he says when he made complaints to the network about the staged portions of the show he was fired, Radar reported.

The popular A&E reality show follows auctioneers and buyers as they bid on various storage units blindly and then raid their purchases in hopes of finding treasures.

According to Radar, Hester claims show producers plant valuable items in the units to presumably make the show more interesting. The suit also claims the show rigs the bidding process. In one part of Hester’s suit, he goes so far as to say the network paid for one female cast member’s plastic surgery to increase her sex appeal and make her more appealing to viewers.

HESTER IS GONE! Hooray, I stopped watching because he is so obnoxious. Barry is my favorite. At least he has a sense of humor.

What do I care if stuff is planed in the units. I like when they go and investigate the value of items. Better than pawn stars.

A&E's "Storage Wars" is FAKE!

Although it may not come as a huge surprise that "reality" TV is somewhat contrived, Storage Wars has taken it to a new level that places the entire industry in doubt.

Storage Wars is an American reality television series on the A&E Network that premiered in 2010. The show features auctioneers Dan Dotson and Laura Dotson, as well as auction hunters Dave Hester, Darrell Sheets, Barry Weiss, and the team of Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante. When rent is not paid on a storage locker for three months in California, the contents are sold by an auctioneer as a single lot of items. The show follows professional buyers who purchase the contents based only on a five-minute inspection and what they can see only from the door when it is opened. The goal is to turn a profit on the merchandise.

Haha its so obvious all these shows are fake...just look at the circumstances a lot of times. They always go on about deadlines, building hype, barely staying afloat, "dramatic disaster", the "big win", and a whole bunch of other cliche scenarios that people want to see.
We were meant to live for so much more, have we lost ourselves?

Of COURSE its all fake. They have the WORST fake actors reading off CUE-CARDS and its just so obvious.
Same thing with ALL of these stupid shows.

Its just like the news anymore.

ALL FAKE.
ALL written by the SAME people, re-worded just enough so that the idiot-tards can't tell, and it ALL THE TIME.


I don't think ANYTHING in teevee is real anymore.
The REAL stuff that happens doesn't get broadcast.
The fake shit gets broascast. On EVERY CHANNEL. SAME STORY. Slightly different wording.

My company regularly pays the news to run stories sympathetic to our store. For $50,000 monthly plus about $175,000 a year in bribes, and the news puts what we want on the TV. You think it's news, we think it's exclusive advertising.

We have also done contracts with "reality" TV, and yes those are often planned too. Pawn Stars, Sister Wives, Real Housewives - I have seen first hand that those shows are NOT reality.

They have a little meeting and everyone gets a basic idea of what ought to occur, and sometimes one or more cast member is unaware of the gimmick. We make certain to have our products featured prominently in these shows, and it definitely pays us back ten-fold in commerce.

Remember: it's entertainment!
