Like most so called reality shows, this show is fake. I recently watched a episode of the show and was surprised to see a co-worker of mine on the show. On the episode, he traded a "old bank safe" for a mini bike. The only thing you see on the show was him riding the bike and saying "You got a deal". The episode said the bank safe was worth $4000 while the bike was worth only $1000. The episode even said it was a dumb trade on my co-workers part.
So I talked to my co-worker, he said when he did the trade, he never traded a "old bank safe", he said he traded a baja bug for the mini bike, about $400 cash and for another small item. So just like most shows, this one is a bust too.
