    It's something right out of Orwell's 1984. You find some poor trailer trash or inner city nut case who defaulted in their car loan and get the cameras out as you make a deal to not tow the vehicle if they can answer some trivia questions. You can feel the tension building in the lives of those poor people. First of all there is no legal requirement that reality shows are real. They can edit the tapes and script the dialog for the required drama and even supply the answers to get the right effect. It's awful stuff and typical of how the American media has degenerated.

    For once once I agree with you. It was a terrible show and a terrible premise. It was embarrassing and very sad to watch.

    Absolutely spot on. My husband watched it once. I stared in disbelief, then left the room. I shall do so any time that pap appears on the screen. Utter garbage, painful to watch.
