Bait Car and Operation Repo

These shows are hilarious to watch. It is amazing to me what people will do for a car. A car they don't own.

And speaking in some thick Irish/Scottish accents that are nearly impossible to understand.

I do not have a Scot accent, nor do I own bag pipes. I would not be surprised to find out that all the people of Operation Repo are paid actors, much like on Cheaters. Seems way too staged. The one where they repo'd the Delorean from the Michael Jackson imitator/wanna be was pretty funny.

Actually, if you read the disclaimer at the beginning, the repos are all "reinactments".

What'dya mean Cheaters is paid actors?
They guy I used to work for looks just like Joey Greco...and his name was Joe. I think that makes the show real!

Joey Greco is a stage name. He went to Lake Highlands High School in Dallas in the late 80's. Did you?

Um, no he didn't. He is from the Bronx.

I must have misunderstood what I was told. Bobby Goldstein, the creator of the show is from Dallas, and Tony Habeeb, the original host, whom Greco replaced, is from Texas, and for some reason I recall being told the host went to Lake Highlands High School.
