‘Storage Wars’ Star David Hester Alleges Show is Rigged

David Hester Storage Wars
A&E Network

A&E’s hit reality show Storage Wars is getting a bit of a black eye after recently terminated star David Hester filed a lawsuit alleging the show is rigged.

Hester contends that he was wrongfully terminated. In a complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against A&E and producer Original Productions, Hester alleges, “A&E has committed a fraud on the public and its television audience in violation of the Communications Act of 1934, which makes it illegal for broadcasters to rig a contest of intellectual skill with the intent to deceive the viewing public.”

Of course most of us know that the show follows a team of bidders on abandoned storage units. Hester alleges that A&E in the past has planted items in the lockers, including a BMW mini car in one instance and newspapers reporting on Elvis Presley’s death in another.

Hester claims he was fired after blowing the whistle. He is seeking more than 750 thousand dollars in damages.

YUUUP!
