I don't remember what indie/humble bundle I ended up getting the Pickers game in.

I just know it's as addictive a game as I've ever played. i kind of wish they'd make more.

I think I've seen two episodes of the actual show, in the background while doing something else.

They should just auction it off and donate the money.  Im sure their business has picked up a lot since they now have a 30min commercial airing on History every other day.

I was always under the impression these two don't really drive all around. I heard they production company phone interview the people, see what they have for sale, general prices etc and if they decide to go there they then have a production crew come out to setup the whole seen and magically the van shows up with these two in it totally shocked at what they find.

You are 100% correct.

Two establishments where I have friends have been on the show and it is almost exactly as you describe.

Either these guys really don't know what phrase "honey hole" means or they're just trolling standards & practices.

1) If you're running a film crew, even a small one, it's expensive to shoot, so you're going to check out what's available and what's likely rather than burning time and money just driving around.

2) It probably makes for better reality TV if the hosts don't know what they're going to find, and are actually surprised.

Personally, I prefer the Antiques Roadshow format, where the experts are honestly surprised by what comes through the door.

From what I understand, those Antiques Roadshow items are screened before they're brought in front of the camera.  That way the appraisers can take some time to look up crap about the item beforehand. Which is why they always seem so knowledgeable about that one obscure piece when the old lady places it on the table.

Not defending the tattoos, as I find they don't add to any womans attractiveness (for me), but in this case they don't detract nearly enough (again, to me) to not find her anything but hot.

There's competition between the appraisers at the AR events.  The ones with the best finds get on air, which can be a huge boost for business.


I was thinking of the appraisers who got caught using plants in the crowd with distinctive items.  To be fair, these were appraisers on their own and were kicked off the show when caught.

The only thing that gets screened before the show date is large furniture, as the Roadshow pays for transport, which is why the Kenos and Sollo always seem to have a leg up.

The rest of is (aside from the plants, who as you mentioned got their asses tossed) is screened on the fly.  Having been there, I got the sense that something really major might end up taking up all a particular appraiser's time to research, while everyone else at the table had to work twice as hard to keep up.

PBS pays nothing for the people to be there, so they're on their own dime and it shows how good for their businesses that certain people (the Keno bros., Rago & Sollo, Renye Haynes, the poster guy, etc) come back year after year.

CSB.. the last time AR came to town we invited the cast and crew here to the brewery. we have this huge plaster relief of the crest of King James hanging off the wall behind the bar. It's the source of our brewery's Logo. We wanted them to come check it out and see if they wanted to do a segment about it..

Long story short.. we comped them everything and all the antiques roadshow folks were very, very drunk by the end of the afternoon. it was a grand old time. The next time they come to town they are supposed to be producing a segment../csb
