You stole my line. lol


Yep, I've often wondered about him and how he retained a job. He couldn't be as dimwitted at the show portrays him.  Then again...


If he really was that dumb and lazy he couldn't hold a job anywhere. Of course there's been a lot of celebrities or athletes who get some fame, make some money then think they can do anything they want. I doubt if any of them are at that store except when they film the staged reality show. I don't know why they still call them reality shows, I guess about 10% is reality, the other is WWE wrestling.

The whole store is a joke. Took each of my kids to Vegas for their 21st birthday. Went by while there. Very small shop. Mostly full of merchandise from the show, hats, cups, shirts. According to the locals the only time they see any of them is when they are filming. They were filming day we dropped by. They would not let anyone in except crew and extras while they filmed. Was not impressed.

Went to Vegas some years back and same thing. Big ole sign on the side of the building touting them as the best, open 24 hours 7 days a week yada yada. Right underneath was a sign saying closed for filming.

The shows popularity is stupifying, but not as much so as the amount of people who believe there is any reality to reaity TV.

I watched that show about a month when it first began airing and I knew almost right off it was a joke. I have several friends that own pawn shops and none of them will buy 95% of the junk they buy on that show. I quite watching it...................jmho

If the show was condensed from 1 hr to 15 minutes, I'd watch. Some of the stuff that comes in is actually pretty cool, but getting to see it isn't worth all the wasted time on the show.

DVR is the only way I watch any show anymore.
