Yuuuuuup, that show is fake - USA Today: "'Storage Wars' star says show is rigged."
This is the least-surprising news story on the wire today. If you haven't seen "Storage Wars" it follows a group of buyers who bid on abandoned storage units which - inevitably - hold some hidden treasure. There's always a "hey, what's this?" moment followed by a trip to an antique shop or an expert who tells the astounded (sometimes disappointed) buyer the true worth, always played to high dramatic effect. After a while, the sheer implausibility of these "special" finds became too much.
