i wonder how much his fat is going to go for in the shop
 
2014-07-15 06:51:51 PM  
Yeah, through the hard work of surgery. Great accomplishment!

i was sayign recently this is a pretty cool show but it would be better if they dropped the scripted segments.  they're poorly written, poorly acted, and add nothing to the show.  "chumley plays a prank on the dad", "chumley and the security guard get into a argument", "watch the dad take guitar lessons", "the whole gang goes bowling and hilarity ensues", they're just stupid and terribly acted by even "reality" standards.

just a straight "deal, deal, deal, deal" approach would be better IMO.

a_burlap_sack_of_kittens: i wonder how much his fat is going to go for in the shop


Problem is, I can only make $50 offa this fat!  now, to you, it might be worth $750, but, I got overhead, I gotta find a buyer for this. Only buyers I know in the fat market are Slim and None, and Slim skipped town.  I'll give you *grimace*..........$25.

*sticks out hand for handshake*

I'm not really sure what this is worth, but I've got a buddy who knows everything about extreme weight loss. Mind if I give him a call?
 
2014-07-15 06:54:51 PM  
The reality star says his wake-up call came back in 2010 when his doctor first put him on preventative diabetes medication.

"I literally drove straight from the doctor to the lap band center and had the surgery almost immediately," Harrison told People magazine of his weight loss surgery. "Back then, the surgery was too expensive for my bank account, so I had to pay with four credit cards, but it was something I had to do -- I was not going to get diabetes!"

At least Chumlee started eating right and exercising.

Still a punchable face.

I kind of like the show.
 
2014-07-15 07:03:39 PM  
I have to say I gave their new game show Pawnography a shot recently, because it's a quiz show and I am a sucker for quiz shows.

The format is thus:

*Host Christopher Titus goes through the Pawn Stars' personal collection and picks out three items to put up as prizes; think total value of $15-20K. It's pretty clear that the Pawn Stars don't know what's being trucked out beforehand, because early items on offer were Chumlee's hovercraft and Rick's Miami Heat championship ring, which they'd never have put up if it were their call.

*In Round 1, the first, least-valuable item is put up for grabs. Two contestants play against Chumlee and Corey, with multiple choice questions worth $100 each. If the Pawn Stars are ahead at the end, the item goes back to the shop. If a contestant is ahead, it's theirs... for now.

*Between Rounds 1 and 2, the contestants get asked a single question about the show for $150.

*In round 2, the second item is unveiled and placed up for grabs. Rick defends it solo. The scores are not wiped clean. Whoever leads at the end, again, gets the item and if Rick's ahead it goes back to the shop. The leading contestant gets the cash they've earned- for now- and goes on to the final round; the loser walks with nothing.

*In the final round, the final, most valuable item is put up for grabs, and the contestant plays all three Pawn Stars in a direct ripoff of Ben Stein's Best Of 10 Test Of Knowledge. If the contestant wins or ties, he gets the cash and the items he's earned; if he loses, he walks off with nothing. The big difference: neither contestant nor Pawn Stars are told their score or the correct answers.

*Because after they've both had their turns, Rick and the contestant negotiate on a cash bailout, not knowing for sure who won, and of course, the contestant's free to decline Rick's offer. Of course, if Rick's positive that he won, he has no qualms whatsoever about offering a $100 bailout.

Which is the big problem, I think: the viewers ARE told how they did, and if the Pawn Stars won and Rick is correct in guessing that they did, it's damned anticlimactic, especially since there's a commercial break mid-negotiation. So, yeah, let's go to break while the contestant decides whether to take $200 or find out on his own that he got ganked 9-5. And the cash earned in the main game can very easily be in the 3-digit range with the items selected being... well, truthfully, if you went on a game show and got told that you could WIN this Soviet space suit, how excited would you really be? These are items that just should not be game show prizes. There are going to be way too many flokati rugs on that show.
 
2014-07-15 07:04:31 PM  
Used to find the show tolerable when it was mostly about the items before the slow creep to thirty plus minutes of inane poorly acted skits.
 
2014-07-15 07:09:07 PM  
He's been on tv for a decade and couldn't afford lapband?  I wonder if he's broke now?  I think I'll start a kickstarter for him, .25$ to have a rat gnaw that thing off his face.
 
2014-07-15 07:10:39 PM  
Guy still looks huge. How tall is he?

AverageAmericanGuy: Too bad about that ridiculous beard.


Hey, the beard slightly distracts from the fact that he's extremely ugly.

I hope it's what their passing off as acting, but that meth-head seems like a horrible person.
 
2014-07-15 07:15:09 PM  
$2000for lap band surgery? I'm thinking more like $50.
 
2014-07-15 07:15:17 PM  
He should do fine as a new backup country musician or synth-pop-folk guitarist.
 
2014-07-15 07:19:36 PM  

iron_city_ap: $2000for lap band surgery? I'm thinking more like $50.



there was a funny one where this guy brought in some authentic surveying equipment from like, 1880 or some shiat.  he was like, "this is worth $7,000, and i'll sell for no less than $5000!"  the dad guy was like, "i don't know dude, that's just a bunch of old metal to me, and there's no market for survey equipment these days with GPS technology, ssssssssssssssooooo....i'll give you $150."  completely lowballed him.

the guy walked away in a huff and in the post-interview, he was like, "fark this place, i thought this was a reputable business but they tried to fark me, i'm outta here".  i guess he seriously thought he was gonna get paid off his shiatty items.  hearing his bleeps wsa hilarious.  he was legitimately upset no one wanted his shiatty farking piece of shiat useless outdated equipment.
 
2014-07-15 07:23:08 PM  
I read the biography those guys wrote. Corey used to be a meth addict back in school. He eventually beat his meth addiction by eating bacon cheeseburgers whenever he was jonsing for meth. It got him off the meth, but on the path for diabeetus.
 
2014-07-15 07:31:41 PM  
He still looks kind of fat. It might be the clothes, fat, where the weight is concentrated or it might be excess skin he might not have had removed yet.
 
2014-07-15 07:34:48 PM  

untaken_name: Yeah, through the hard work of surgery. Great accomplishment!


My sister did the same thing.  Lost a ton of weight for the first 2 years, and now she's back up to almost where she was before.  She's had them loosen the band because she just likes eating too much.

at least they still dont staple your stomach my mother had that done in the early 90s and her life has been hell since it seems that she cant eat a meal without throwing up and constant b12 shot for the rest of her life also theres no undoing it sure youll lose weight if you cant eat

Damn, that's almost 1 1/2 of me. So what happens to douchebag sleeve tattoos after that much weight loss?

Yep...when I was introduced to it, someone told me it was 'Antiques Roadshow, but for stuff you might actually want to own.'. That's the attractive part of the show, not the contrived BS with which they fill out the half hour.

I don't know why that template has become the ONLY way to make this kind of reality show. Comic Book Men is another good example...on TESD those guys are often funny and likeable, but on the show they're wooden and unwatchable. If you want people to act, hire actors. WWE could learn this lesson, too. I mean, I still wouldn't watch it, but it would be better...a little...I guess...maybe not...

The belly band still makes you throw up if you eat too much, but yeah, its nice that they can at least loosen it up or remove it if you decide you want to be fat again.

Why the B12? Just asking because my dad, at 77, has a severe B12 deficiency due to a lifetime of boozing and has to get shot every month.

/Or just tell me to fark off - it's none of my business. I just hear about folks needing B12 shots more & more it seems.

Well most of them are. Walt Flanagan is kind if a douchebag, I haven't listened to TESD in a while but the last time I heard it they were all whining about how put upon they are that they had to appear at a comic con.

The only other "reality show" I tried to watch was Face/Off because it was about movie makeup FX. It was about people with actual talent. But by the second season some suit got hold of it and they added all the fake drama that's in all those shows.

The fact that he calls himself 'Chumley' is reason enough to burn down the building (with them in it) and then salt the ground so nothing can be grown there.

It's true...I dropped that show when it turned into 90 minutes of whining about Impractical Jokers and CBM. But they're still WAY more entertaining when they're being themselves, instead of listening to some producer go 'If Ming was a female superhero, which one would he be?'.

/IJ is still completely indefensible...and unwatchable

The Harrisons called him that when he was growing up because he was shaped liked the cartoon character.

Yeah, those segments are the worst parts of Pawn Stars. I'd rather they concentrate on the history behind the pawned items and the customers haggling with Rick.

I think a good reality-show BS filter goes a little like this:

*If the show revolves around a single set of people, if there is any way that human beings could possibly mess with the proceedings, they will be messed with and the show is either straightaway BS or will be soon. (Notable exception: Deadliest Catch. There is no production crew on the planet that could manipulate waves on the Bering Sea or crab migration patterns.)
*If the show revolves around a rotating cast of characters (e.g. any elimination-based competition), check the contestant NDA's. If the NDA expires on the show's airdate, you should be fine; the contestants can immediately call out anything that the editors leave out or change and production knows it, they're mainly just trying to avoid spoilers.
*If the NDA extends past airdate, start worrying. There may be something that production is hoping to keep under wraps until the contestants are safely back out of the limelight.
*If the NDA extends years past airdate, you're probably watching BS and will only start finding out what the BS is roundabout Season 5. The more years tacked on, the more BS there is.

I get a 'banana pack' from the mobile nurse station everytime I go to vegas. Right when you come to. Hot chicks, b12 then the pool at the Hard Rock. Its like 200 with tip. Like everything in vegas its 10x more expensive but yeah its just vitamins.

Instead of dropping the weight, how about dropping the idea that anyone is ever going to call you Big Hoss. I mean seriously it totally sounds like the kind of nick name he gave himself.
 
2014-07-15 09:24:03 PM  
Big deal, anyone will lose weight when you put a band around their stomach and make it the size of a golf ball.

Flipping through their slideshow of famous people that lost weight, and man. Christina Ricci went from pretty to vaguely creepy.
