i agree. It's apparent this hostess is not well informed.
Neither are the two of you. And yet, you don't see people make ignorant claims about the two of you. Which is a very, very, very sad thing to do.
I mean... Have either one of you have a reputation and history tied to appraising, auctioning, etc. any kind of object like she does? Did you know that she is also a art historian and antiques appraiser? That for more than a decade, she was both an expert appraiser and consultant for Christie's Auction House? How about the fact that she is a licensed appraiser? How about the fact that her expertise includes pop culture?
Did either one of you know that? Obviously not since you both chose to trash her with no merit instead of looking up any information on her. Something that takes very little effort, especially if you do nothing more than actually look up her name on Wikipedia.
What the heck are you swinging at? Can you take it down 3 or 4 notches instead of leaping and making assumptions of what I meant? I could easily make assumptions about you based on your tone and what you wrote, but I won't (for the time being).
I have watched a few shows and feel that the show is based on drama, and her angle is to push the people into dramatic points. (I don't think that should be a big surprise to anyone, since drama sells). In this particular episode she gave the guy advice that people are not into G2 Botcon Stunticons therefore he should sell them, after he said that he was very attached to them for several reasons. Her advice doesn't make sense for a couple reasons - 1. If G2 Stunticons are not popular now, why sell them? Why not wait until they are popular and therefore worth more money? Why not sell something that is worth more money and takes up more space if he needed the money? 2. I believe the G2 Stunticons are worth more money than she claimed. 3. Why advise someone to sell something that they said they are very atached to other than to make better drama? I am sticking to my guns that she is not well informed about G2 Stuniticons.
Like most TF collectors, I take my advice from Transformers experts when I choose to sell parts of my collection; not TV show paid auctioneers with a broad background in pop culture.
