Dave Hester calls “YEP!” on Storage Wars, claims the show is rigged and files a lawsuit against producers. One of the former buyers, Hester known for his catch-phrase ‘Yep’ has found himself in a bad place with the reality show, he is accusing the A & E show of allegedly putting specific goods inside the lockers which are bid on just before the bidding does get underway.
The show is about a group of collectors, when rent is not paid for three months then buyers have five minutes inspection, then the auctioneer starts the bidding war.
Sometimes the bidder could be nothing or they could end up with everything. Hester had once been one of the biggest stars, and now has filed a lawsuit against A & E he has put claim fourth that the lockers had been rigged.
He also alleges he had been let go for complain to the producers about this. He has cited incidences of a BMW mini car being hidden under trash, as well as old newspapers documenting the death of Elvis Presley.
Dan Dotson, auctioneer, who is behind the show’s auction company, told TMZ
“We only sell legitimate units on Storage Wars. Every unit goes through a 64-day legal process and no one has access to units prior to auction.”
