Andrew, New York.
He's Andy and he's a handyman. He said that with a smirk as if he thinks the audience will find that oh-so-clever. He's a handyman without very many teeth.
The houses in his neighborhood go for like a million dollars. I bet his neighbors just love him.
"He looks like Nicolas Cage in Raising Arizona." Scott
Andy has himself a hair bucket. He puts his shave trimmings in a jar. Maybe he makes crafts with the trimmings. Little Christmas trees made out of spray painted beard trimmings. That seems like a good idea. I might buy one.
He thinks his garbage is worth $40,000! HAHA. Thank goodness Dr. Robin Zasio is here to tell him he's out of his mind.
Andy is quite spry for a hoarder. He climbs his hoard like a little monkey. He's devolving to survive the hoard.
There's Ms. Tonya Hoarding in a fetching blouse. That's what I'd wear over to a hoarder house too. Can't make a bad first impression.
Andy filed an order of protection against this brother Alan. Andy loves him some bikes. "I like 'em. They work." They are very important to him. That has to be a wig on Andy's head.
Matt Paxton! Do you know Matt Paxton is on twitter? He is. Follow him.
There's a homeless man living in Andy's back yard. His name is Gregory. Gregory the homeless is there to mentor Andy. Andy wants to mentor Gregory. He huffs and he wants to help. He's also getting a little action in his yard shack.
Matt and Tonya Hoarding are a powerhouse team.
"We're all about 4 or 5 decisions away from shitting in a bucket." MATT PAXTON! OH GOD. What is that series of decisions! Everyone be sure not to make them. Matt let the Possum Posse know what he meant by that.
Matt Paxton so, I asked the homeless guy how he ended up in the shack. he says "you know, girls man, she broke my heart." Andy felt bad for this homeless guy and let him live in his yard. seriously, one of the most interesting hoards I've ever worked in.
Matt Paxton isn't taking any of Alan's shit! He's calling him out on his lies about caring for Andy. He doesn't care about Andy, he cares about his estate. Ohhh...Alan is a villain. Matt Paxton fights for hoarders everywhere. Now Alan has called Adult Protective Services. Andy has to lock him out. This is actually super crazy. Once again, Matt Paxton is right.
Andy says 4 of Alan's enemies are now dead. This is going to turn into an emotional thriller. What is this Alan guys deal? Freak yeah, Andrew! Get a restraining order put on him! So awesome. Now Alan is trying to get a restraining order against Andy. HAHA! You're a terrible villain, Alan.
Greg the homeless man is "hot to trot."
Tonya Hoarding just gave Andrew a cookie like he was a child. Good boy.
"When we got here the house was a crap hole. We're leaving and the house is a crap hole." Oh you know who said that shit.
Andrew is still living in filth. Climbing trees and hoard. He's a happy little hoarder. Matt is sort of happy for him and his hoard.
Shania is 14 and she's in 8th grade and likes to rock out. She feels like her Mom is a hoarder. And her bearded Dad.
Belinda is 37, disabled and a hoarder. She had to have surgery on her back and that caused her to hoard. Her Dad is 52 (Kevin) he has a giant beard, dolls and bills. Oh never mind, the dolls are Shania's. SHE'S A 14 YEAR OLD HOARDER! Scandal. "The only way I know how to clean is to put stuff in the corner."
Belinda is lounging on a pile of hoard, smoking a cig. Trying to be all sexy. Trying and succeeding, I'd say.
Shania, this kinda seems like a tricky teenage thing you're doing. The whole claiming to be a hoarder. It's all a ruse so she doesn't have to clean her room.
I really can't express how often these hoarders hoard stuffed animals. They all have them. Stuffed animals are patient zero. They are how the hoard starts. Look at them.
Certified Professional Organizer specializing in chronic disorganization. That's the organizer they sent to Shania. This lady gets the B team. Who cares who this lady is? If you would be awesome like Matt Paxton you wouldn't have to describe yourself like that.
Belinda looks like a little troll doll. Did she just threaten to cry? Is she 3?
Belinda CAN'T BELIEVE someone would throw away something purchased at Wal-Mart. It's like Wal-Mart is her Versace. You know what's weird? I always think of Versace as being a really fancy brand, but I also always think of the movie Showgirls whenever "Versace" is said. It's a really powerful brand.
HEAD HOARDER! Now we are trying to figure out who is the head of the hoarders in this house. I love that the psychiatrist had to investigate to see if the daughter was the head hoarder. The head hoarder that taught her two parents to hoard.
Bucket o' cigs. Those are for more crafting obviously.
Keep all those VHS tapes, Belinda! Collectors items.
Shania wants to start making good decisions.
