Back when the internet was young and facts still had meaning, there was the History Channel, featuring shows about - you guessed it - history. But that version of the network is long gone today. Here are the biggest scandals to hit the reality TV outlet that's now simply called History.
Ice Road Truckers is one of History's best-known reality shows, depicting the perilous lives of drivers in the iciest regions of Canada and Alaska. And sure, it's been criticized by actual trucker media like Truck News for exaggerating or even faking some of the danger.
But real scandal hit the show in 2013. According to a CBS report, star Tim Zickuhr abducted Lisa Cadeau after hiring her for escort work in Las Vegas. He claimed she overcharged him by $1,000 and demanded she meet him to settle the dispute. It was then that he dragged her back to his apartment, beat her, and tied her up in a closet.
Fearing for her life, Cadeau gave Zickuhr the phone number of an undercover police officer, claiming he could pay her ransom. Zickuhr called the number and unknowingly arranged his own arrest. The Las Vegas Sun reported Zickuhr confessed on the spot that he intended to hold Cadeau hostage and prostitute her through Craigslist.

I think the first guy who wanted to abduct and prostitute an escort is the most horrible one. That's criminal and downright slavery

+Dissenter I briefly worked with an Argentinean who had said that his gpa had done stupid stuff. He didn't say it outright buuuttt... a German fleeing to Argentina after ww2? He'd just shake his head and say 'the stupid things ppl get caught up in' like it was a high school prank or something low key.

The swamp loggers are actually doing a real and legitimate form of logging called "dead heading" it's from when back in the day logging companies floated logs down the river (not on rafts, logs just float) but one out of every 10-15 logs would sink after a while of being in the water, and the water preserves them (no matter if it's "cold" or not). And you can make a huge amount of money from "dead head" lumber, because of it's extremely unique coloration and pattersn..i used to go dead heading with my dad and uncle every summer when i was out of school, we had a custom built pull boat and "river pig" that we used to actually get the logs up and to the boat ramp..it's a hell of a lot of fun but also extremely dangerous, but we also never used scuba gear, we just held out breath and started feeling aroynd in the river..every now and then a game warden would pull up and talk to us, ask us what we were doing and then take off after we told him and he thanked us for cleaning up the river a bit more...but dude in this video needs to do a little more research before stating his "facts"..he said "historians say that appearently" like no man, if you do any amount of research on the topic of dead head logging you'll find all the information you could ever want..btw if anybody wants to know more about it from someone with personal experience then feel free to message me. But as it's summer time i'll be in the river and creek a lot more huntin more dead heads to stack up

The producers of American Pickers send out notices to communities that basically say "American Pickers will be coming to your area several months from now. If you have items that you think would be appropriate for our show, please contact us." The production team then scouts potential locations long before the cast actually comes to the area.

Eustace is SUPER into free work, him and my dad are pretty good friends, and when I met him, first thing he did was holler at my dad saying "HEY JIM, HOW ARE YOU DOING, WANNA GET TO WORK WITH US?" My dad was the Saltmaker on one episode, and to Eustace's credit, they wanted Eustace to ham up a thing where he Foooouuund a salt spring, and talk about it, but he refused to do it, saying that either they put my dad in it, or he wouldn't do the episode. Soo....ya know, genuinely cool guy.

I don’t watch this crap since the 80’s. I did take a look at the BS programming about the aliens from outer space crap. Everything according to them is connected to extra terrestrial travelers. They use the terms; might, may be, could, but they suggest the facts prove alien involvement. This show needs to be trashed or why not drop the bs and stick to what they know.

I think it’s mostly bs. If you do anything all of your life you realize how rare some of these opportunities are. Once a year, every few years, once a decade or once a lifetime. The fact that they catch something good every episode ha to be bs

Why is American Pickers a thing? All they do is drive around, rummage through shed fulls of old shit then pretend some rusty piece of metal is super valuable when it clearly is not. At least Pawn Stars, which is shot in a gift shop sets itself up so interesting items come along.
Kharn The Destroyer
What amazes me with that show. When the pickers turn up at some old dudes acres of land ful of junk, they spend hours climbing through it to pick up some rusty looking piece of crap, only for the owner to say "it's too valuable to let you have it" come on, you probably didn't even know you had it til they found it, it's covered in rust for Christ's sake.

Aggressive regulation and strange logging laws....how dare people not bend over to corruption. We need a snarky commentor mocking the silly rural folk. How about you research why his ranch was being shaken down and look further into logging laws in Washington.
