Repo Games airs on Tuesday nights at 11 on Spike TV (check with your cable provider for channel information). In the program there are two agents, however, Josh Lewis and Tom detonate, they call to your door and offer you the opportunity to save his vehicle from being repossessed if he can answer five trivia questions on Repo Games. If you answer correctly they pay for your used car, not just the outstanding payments but the total loan balance.
During his first season, the program paid for 20 cars. Each program features interactions with three vehicle owners and each season has 10 episodes.
As he was stated in a telephone interview Sallyann Salsano, executive producer of the program, “It’s like crack.
Sallyann offers a fun description of Repo Games program. “If Jeopardy had crossed the street unwisely taken a couple of drinks, and then appeared in the COPS program, that’s what would Repo Games,” he said. Sure, she has been interviewed several times over the series and probably already used that phrase before, but it’s too good and creative as not to include it.
Aaron Gold could be linked with the program Top Gear USA as a producer, but I have no connection with this production. By this I do not mean that I do not love to have the opportunity to write for the program (just after seeing a couple of clips). I just wanted to make this distinction.
SallyAnn, who has a style of frank and sincere conversation, said, “Everyone is keen to win new cars, but there are people who are struggling not to lose their vehicles.”
The program works with real companies but throughout the country. For those unfamiliar, a company garnishment takes possession of the vehicle owners who are behind on their payments. You never want to see an agent but taking your car or used truck. Unless, of course, but the agent is surrounded by a camera crew and some lighting and sound technicians. There is a chance not to lose your vehicle answering questions such as “Where is located the Great Barrier Reef?
“It’s like the TV show” Cops “. There is a program in which you want to appear “SallyAnn said. (Well, if you are very behind on your car payments, you may want to appear on the show.) “It’s the only game show in which you have already lost when we appear.”
As noted SallyAnn, you’d be surprised the answers to the questions people should know and should not know. “You can never guess who knows what,” he said. “Generally, the more easily the question, more people are mistaken.”
The program has embargoed all types of vehicles, from Mercedes-Benz to Oldsmobile. The program also see all kinds of neighborhoods. “In this economy, this could affect anyone,” said SallyAnn. “Everybody has 18,000 excuses why not pay your car until you are told it is a game show. Only then people will support it. ”
Without asking, SallyAnn defends Repo Man (embargos agent) of the reviews say it is exploiting people. “Ultimately, we are arranging their lives,” he said. People who earn not use the money they saved on exotic trips, Sallyann added. Instead, they are using their new funds to pay for other obligations. Participants do not exceed “I can not pay my bills” to “I’m going to Aruba” SallyAnn said.
Repo Games is in its second season in the truncated world of cable networks. Originally it premiered in April 26, 2011 and had a run of 10 episodes. Already they passed two episodes of the second season with the issuance of the third new episode scheduled for July 26, 2011.
Here is some information about the co-hosts of the program. Josh Lewis, 30 years old, was raised in Reed City, Michigan. He served in the US Navy before obtaining a degree in Political Science at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. It was not until 2003 when he started in the business of embargoes vehicles. Thereafter he began working as a security guard for a company of embargoes and was quickly promoted to agent embargoes. At its peak, Lewis was making $ 150 per car and has since been addicted to business. Lewis currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Tom detonates, 41 years old, was born and raised in the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) until his teens when his family moved to Arizona. At age 19, he was introduced in the business of embargoes after trying to stop what he thought was an attempted carjacking. His quick reflexes and his concern for justice immediately allowed him to get work as an “observer” and has since been working continuously in the field. Detonate currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
