How much of this is legit hoarding and how much is just being so lazy that you don't care about shitting where you sleep?
As a frequent viewer of A&E's "Hoaders", it seems to be about 50/50.
Roach House -- now with bonus ant!
Oh *hell* no. No no no no.
Perhaps the Roach Motel in the area was booked out?
Pepsi viral advertising.
Reminded me to look up Burn Hazard's chatlog on poe-news. Thanks, assholes.
Good god, I missed the transition from "I'm a kind of crazy lady that spent too much money at the thrift store so now my house is full of blue dresses" to "I'm am garbage incarnate and my house is full of roach colonies".
this whole episode is just amazing, there are bottles of piss, dirty adult diapers, and used maxipads all over the floor of the bathroom
I'm intrigued by the "they hoard outside the house now" development. It's like they're on level two now, having completed level one 100%.
well, at least it's Diet Pepsi...
what the fuck.
Roaches are to me are what snakes and rats are to Indiana Jones and Jones Sr. This clip has freaked me out like few videos here have ever done. Bravo.
"That's actually an incubator."
Also, hoarding is when you hang on to a 5.25 floppy drive "just in case". Letting trash pile up knee-deep is something else. (Come to think of it, all these shows do is to make me feel better about my own hoarding.)
I've used these shows to fight my own hoarding tendencies. Watch one of these shows before a big cleaning day, and you'll be more willing to part with your crap.
The floppy drive is a good example. I know I held on to mine way too long "just in case" but I eventually threw it out it.
It's like that seen in Creepshow, but real.
She calls herself a hoarder because saying she's just too fat and lazy to clean and now her house is over run with roaches makes it seem like she's to blame for something.
Man alive! There are... men alive in here!

Nothing inspires an impromptu, frantic kitchen or bathroom scrubdown like one of these hoarder shows. Watching them has actually changed me for the better; I recently threw out an armload of old, inherited dishes I'd had since I first moved out of my mother's house. I'd never liked or used them, but they were functional, so that saved them from the bin time and again. But after watching so many of these filthy packrats describe shit they've been hoarding since the Carter administration as "perfectly good," putting those chipped, ugly things out on the curb was much easier.
Yeah, visiting a hoarder's house pretty much sent me home on a "throw it out" spree. Wasn't like this - thankfully they were more a sterile hoarder than this, but still, freaked me the fuck out.
I dunno. This show might result in a nation of OCD clean freaks, obsessed with rug fringe straightening. There's got to be a moderation of some sort.
Roach Warfare 2 boss level
It would have been funny if when they opened the fridge there was just one giant roach in there asleep, then he wakes up and yells "TURN OUT THAT LIGHT!!!"
how fucking hard is it to designate a day of the week as trash night and take it outside?
One of the best clips from any hoarding show. Too bad Chris Chan refuses to sign up.

BURNiNATION!! That's the only fix!
My new band, Three Inches Of Roaches.
Just a thought - all those who are being helped to part with "just in case" things - you could gift them to homes where they will be used, rather than trash good stuff. It's also a positive use for craigslist!
