Storage Wars Lawsuit: Is It Fake?

December 12, 2012 12:00 PM by Megan Wilson

David Hester (Far right) is one disgruntled ex-employee!  The cast member of A&E’s Storage Wars is speaking out about the show, claiming that many aspects of the show is fake.  He’s filed a suit for wrongful termination, breach of contract and unfair business practices.   This marks the second headline for the A&E reality show, after one of their cast members fell victim to a pornography scandal.  So how fake is Storage Wars?  Read on to see!

David Hester has been with the show for three seasons, but was fired before the fourth season after he claims he aired concerns regarding the validity of the show.  Hester is claiming that the producers of the show added items to the lockers to amp up the drama factor and to reel viewers in.  Planted items include a BMW Mini, along with newspapers detailing Elvis Presley’s death.  Hester said that after he complained about the planting that producers stopped planting the items for his segments, but continued with the practice for the other cast members.  The lawsuit goes so far as to state that entire units are staged.  The suit states that “A&E regularly plants valuable items or memorabilia.”  What a letdown!

The show features entrepreneurs getting a few seconds to look in a storage locker before being given the chance to bid on the locker’s contents.  David Hester was termed “The Mogul” on the show, and even had his own tagline, “YUP!” which he would shout to bid up units with no intention of purchasing.  He was seen as the show’s “Villain”.  He may very well become the villain of A&E,  as his suit is asking for $750,000 in wrongful termination.  A&E has declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Will you continue to watch Storage Wars?  Do you think A&E will comment on the allegations?  Let us know in the comments!

    Now that he is gone, I will start watching it again. I can’t stand him…A&E should of never let him on the show in the first place. I don’t believe a word Dave has to say…he has always been a liar and a cheat. Hes just a spoiled brat who is throwing a tantrum because he was fired. He has always been a sore loser and he thinks hes all that…but he is nothing. Just a piece of crap. YUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPP.

    Of course the show is fake. “Reality” shows have no basis in reality. It is all scene editing and splicing to add drama.
