I find him to be the most disrespectful and detestable person on that show. If I were his dad or the old man I would have already knocked him stem winding on his butt for that smart mouth.

He should have bought Robosaurus. The old man would have killed him and this would never have happened.

This event was probably staged by the producer for all the free publicity that comes with a “run in.” A bar fight just adds to the cachet of the series.

Eh, what usually happens is someone like this goes to a dive bar and gets recognized by some idiot who gets in his face.

The problem is, once you are 'famous' you can't go to your old biker bars and hang out. Too many drunken idiots want a piece of you.

Hey, these guys are good solid American businessmen. Pure entrepeneurs, not people put on TV because they have implants or are famous just for being famous. The show teaches great lessons about markets and about how capitalism really works. Any idiot who tries to run that business is going to go broke fast. Big Hoss is just a typical big good ol' boy who got in a barroom dustup. That's about as American as it gets.

And I may be wrong, but I rather strongly suspect that they vote GOP....

I guess somebody did not want to sell Big Hoss an item.

Can he play? I dumped TV but I will go to a relative’s for dinner once in a blue moon. They play this on TIVO. The kid that got arrested is a nasty idiot. Chumlee, the Old Man and the owner Rick are enjoyable. Chumlee is good natured. This Corey is a fat dumb a*s.

BOR is a stooge for Obama. As someone pointed out - this family is in business and probably is conservative. Rick is pretty good but his kid is a dummy. Probably someone did get in his face.

So can Chumleee bomb it and does he have a short game?

I can’t believe how they screw people on that show. Every time they lowball some dupe, I start screaming “eBay! Haven’t you heard of eBay?” Those guys must make millions. Too bad they don’t show the occasional customer telling Rick to shove it.

The show teaches great lessons about markets and about how capitalism really works.

The lesson it teaches is to skip the pawn shop route and sell everything on E-Bay.

‘I can’t believe how they screw people on that show.’

They are actually very fair with the people who come into their store.

Remember that most retail markup is 400%. That is why a GP of 50% can be had during a 50% off sale. In most instances they are offering about 50% of what they believe they can get for the item. In the meantime they have to hold the item. Fix it and sit on it in a retail environment until they can sell it. They have alot of over head.

They also call in several experts in order to find out what an item is worth if they do not know.

As a side note. I can not say for the others but Rick is definitely Republican. He has been on Mark Levin in the past.

"The lesson it teaches is to skip the pawn shop route and sell everything on E-Bay."

The trouble is, these sellers are not into the delayed gratification thing. They want cash and want it now. Probably to go party at the casio or pay off debt incurred by doing the same.

Lightweight.

They would have had to hold you for a couple of days!

The dad without a doubt is GOP. I’ve heard him say too many code words. He’s a history buff so the show is a great history lesson too.
