Anyone surprised ??

You've probably seen Dave Hester attempting to outbid his Storage Wars competitors for abandoned storage lockers in Southern California. "Yuuup!" is his trademark phrase.

Now, Hester has filed a lawsuit against A&E, the network that airs the show, charging the show is fake.

He says the show fired him in retaliation days after he complained about it to network and production company executives.

RadarOnline says that in the lawsuit filed by Los Angeles attorney Marty Singer, the show is accused of illegal activity and of deceiving the public. "A&E regularly plants valuable items or memorabilia," the court documents say, to add drama to the show..

A&E has previously defended the show as being 100% real.

Hester, who says he was fired after meeting with show execs to express concern over the show, also claims producers staged entire units and enlisted the cooperation of owners of storage facilities to do so. He says the show pays for storage lockers for "weaker" cast members as part of the manipulation and the show plants items in lockers after having them appraised weeks in advance.

In addition, Hester charges that interviews with cast members are scripted and scenes of bidding are faked to the extent that there are no auctions taking place.

On Sept. 6, Hester and some other cast members met with Neil Cohen, A&E's senior vice president, reports Radar, to express their concerns. In the meeting Hester complained, "that he believed that it was illegal for Defendants to continue to salt the storage units," the suit alleges. "The other cast members present agreed with Hester that Defendants' conduct was inappropriate and possibly illegal."

I like the show but I figured it was rigged as much as every other "reality" tv show.
