Do you want to be on Hardcore Pawn? Simply have an item worth looking at and then agree to come back and argue about it (no it's not a blanket statement but it is more the rule of thumb than not). It's entertainment, period. People come in and have an old cathode ray tv that they want $50-100 for but it's not worth $5. They demand what they want, argue to no end and then the bouncer shows up. All a big acted out scene, nothing more. Those who star on the show are raking in huge bucks and as one poster said, laughing all the way to the bank. They make more off of the show than the do with pawning, selling or buying stuff.
Yes, it's that simple. I live near the place in Southfield.
