    I'm starting to see this on other shows too. Like Shelby's haunted boat on Axe Men, WTF?

    Look for the Paul Jr crew at Red Jacket Firearms
    (Sons of Guns) next week, and Rick Dale at the Clark county museum ( the appraiser who doesn't appraise on Pawn stars) .

    He's not an appraiser...he's a museum curator (spelling) that they use to authinticate.

    Might?? I wonder how long the cameraman was hiding back there waiting for something funny to happen? To me that makes it dumb not funny.

    I don't get it, other than taking out the (spelling) everything seems to be exactly the same. What did you change?

    The word that (spelling) is referring to.

    Your original post seemed to indicate that you were questioning your spelling of "curator". That was spelled correctly, but "authinticate" was not.

    I found that funny and moved "(spelling)" to follow the misspelled word.


    Maybe it was only funny to me. :eek:

    What about the episode when the guy was trying to sell them Robosaurus and there just happened to be a car there handy for him to "eat"? Or that the guy from Tortuga trading happens to be based in California and that he just happens to be available to drop in at the pawn shop? Or really the whole point about someone just casually walking up to one of the employees to show them what they have?
    Most of the show is scripted in one way or another.

    not sure if I call that "scripted" in the normal "reality show" connotation. Most of the appraisals you see on the show are submitted by folks well beforehand -- they just don't wander into the store with their item. Ever wonder why so many visitors to Las Vegas bring their treasures with them and just happen to want to sell them? ;)

    I don't think that is "scripted" at all. It's placed together. I am sure their experts all come in and do a LOT of items. I doubt the "experts" have so much free time on their hand to drop by whenever Rick calls. They gather a number of items together, and shoot it so they can piece the episodes together differently. Did you think the experts ALWAYS wore the exact same outfit when they came to the shop? (Though the museum guy just may!)

    I don't think that makes it "scripted". Just edited for a more entertaining show. If they didn't do that, it would not be a very interesting show.

    I doubt that when they walk up and look at the item that it is the first time they've looked at it. It may be a real item that they are evaluating and it may belong to the person in question but that doesn't mean that the evaluation that we are seeing on the show isn't scripted. Scripted based on facts but still scripted. It makes it more entertaining but I'm sure they've evaluated it and have made their determination on validity before the segment is shot. It is possible though that the owner of the item doesn't know until it's shot though.

    It was quite subtle and well done.

    Yup, they don't just set up cameras and hope people come in with interesting items. You submit them ahead of time and if chosen they tell you when to bring the item in. Rick/the producers have done initial research so he can talk about the item with the owner. (when he always says, "so what do you have here"? he already knows lol). I'm sure Rick has a lot of knowledge about many things he's seen over the years but there is no way he would know so much about stuff on the fly. And then the experts are lined up to come in for the appropriate items. So I guess in a way it's "scripted" but I agree more with the "editing" comment. Although most of the "humorous" stuff between the guys is definitely scripted.

    I was watching Auctioneer$ and recognized a buyer as a frequent customer on Pawn Stars, usually selling sports memorabilia. Turns out he is an actor.

    It doesn't mean that he didn't own the items that he was trying to sell, but it does seem a bit suspicious.

    I think someone (drumorgan?) previously posted that one of the 'experts' in one episode was an actor friend of his.
