    Soon, every show on TV is going to be 90% undocumented immigrants just like Catch a Contractor.

    Sad. The Bachelor, for example, totally different. Silicon Valley will be about a landscaping company.

    All the house flip shows were undocumented workers. They'd remodel an entire house for just a few thousand more than materials cost. Very blatant who the workers are on those.

    I don't know if you ever watch Adam's show, but I'm surprised MECHA, MALDEF and La Raza allow it to stay on the air.

    The show is actually pretty good. The muscle dude is hopped up on coke, the wife is about 10 years beyond fuckable and Corolla keeps throwing in zingers.

    I have an issue with the 3 options tho:

    1. Give back the money
    2. Come back & fix it under their supervision
    3. Get sued

    Why would anyone give back the money without getting sued to do it in the first place? License issues, maybe? If someone wanted money out of me, I'd make them she me. I'm not a shoddy contractor and don't rip people off, so maybe that adds a wrinkle.

    When they do take the court option, they never tell you what the result was.

    This show has helped a friend of mine. He was going to hire one of the contractors that was exposed on the show. He saw him on the show and then didn't go they with it. The funny thing was that the show pretty much confirmed a bad feeling that my buddy had. He said "that dudes so bad, there's no way he doesn't wind up on that show again". Sure enough, the dude showed up on another episode the next season, lol

    Adam should create a spinoff show called "Catch a Mechanic" and expose some of those ripoff auto repair shops.

    Undocumented sounds much more soft and kind.

    Like how I brought my dog in to a groomer, but I left the rabies certificate in the car so I had to have them hold her while I went back out to the parking lot.

    Yeah, it's just like that except your dog didn't build an addition on the groomers shop while you were in the parking lot.

    My wife took her car in for an inspection and emissions, should only cost $70, when she went to pick it up they told her they had to fix this and that and her bill was $550. The vehicle was a year and a half old so it didn't need anything, but they figure it was a female so lets rip her off.

    I went over and raised enough hell that they called the cops, the cops however sided with us since we never authorized tham to make any repairs.

    My brothers girlfriend watches all these home improvement shows and just ripped apart their downstairs bathroom that was perfectly fine. Then she bitched when it took more than a couple days to redo the whole thing. I said you realize on these shows when the cameras go off a crew of workers come in and do all the real work. Idiot.
