Unless you're Dave Hester. Then the numbers are based on pure magic.

LOL

I did notice that the voiceover guy did say "projected profits" at the end of the episode.

Nothing is better than Darrell's "$30 dollar bills" though!

We are what 4 or 5 episodes deep and those guys are still wearing the same clothes in front of the houses. Only Gilligan's Island wore the same clothes longer. LoL.

They should have told Doug to put on a different shirt besides that striped one at some point. They must have filmed a SugarHoneyIceTea load of those bidding reenactments in one day.


With that said... it is a semi enjoyable 10-15min with FFwd show. Good filler for Shipping Wars with its own version of really bad bidding reenactments.

LOL we noticed the same thing. I'm going to ask him about that next time I talk to him.


I did find out that he/his company purchases over 100+ properties a month

John on Property Wars

Not that this has anything to do with anything, but does anyone else think John looks like an older Ryan Gosling? He even sounds like him a little bit...it's uncanny. I wonder if they are related?

I was told they picked up 24 more episodes so I guess it must be doing good!

I'm hoping they let the guys were different clothes now!

Most of the auctions are held in front of the county courthouse, and there are dozens of people standing around waiting for their particular targets to come up. They're all on phones talking to their brokers or managers or clients getting instructions on what to bid. The bidding period for each house only lasts a minute or two and then they move on to the next one. I imagine it wouldn't make for very good TV, and there would be way too many people in the shot that they'd have to get clearance waivers from or blur their faces. It's much easier to just stage it as if the auctions are more dramatic.

New season seems to have started back up. Still watching it. Despite how fake it is, it keeps me sucked in!
