iluvobox, huh? MB? Mark Burnett? Who are they? The producers moved into the trailer park and then brought in actors as residents? So the people never actually lived there? And is there several Myrtle Manors and they designate the seperate parks by a name, like Patrick? I don't get it. What is the source for that information?
I did find it strange regarding the "cast". It's all listed on a Wikipedia page. What? Nobody just boring like, "the blonde hair lady on the left side of the street who watches TV all the time and is on food stamps"?

If I want to see stupid people in trailer parks with no common sense or even common courtesy towards each other (or society), I'll watch "Cops" on Saturday night.

The trailers looked way too jazzed up. And the supposed residents were over-acted versions of some people that probably do exist. They were obviously paid actors.
What a trainwreck.

Like those weiner sisters can afford rent just by walking around selling crappy hot dogs all day? And the pool just now opened after being shut down for 40 years (or some other long-ass time)? Scripted or not scripted, Bandit cracked my shit up. Dude registered 5.0 on the crazy scale.
Previews for next week? Even more fakery. There was Becky, vying for the most dramatic role with a pondering and sentimental speech saying something about her daddy. Then when they sent a letter to the hair salon in the park saying the building might be condemed and shut down for good, she went for the dramatic role again, this time with a tear-jerking action with, "Now we'll all be out of a job!" They couldn't find a few people who at least took drama in high school?

ShaNaeNae, with that link that was provided, you can search that site for all the news on Myrtle Manor. Guess you can just sit back, have your mind numbed while laughing at all the stereotypes that TLC believes would live in a "trailer" park. There is no way that an above pool could last 40 (or how every many years they claim).
If you have ever been to MB,everyone knows where to buy hot dogs and they do not come from a "bike" cart. You just walk up to the window on the beach at one of the best hot dog stands in the Strand.
Did you happen to catch the notice on the office wall when the "Manager" was talking to the girl (the one she told that they had no vacancies)? It was the Fair Housing Notice. I got a good belly laugh over that.

ShaNaNae, I live in SC and DD (darling daughter) lives in the MB area. She worked right around the corner from the trailer park.The park is located near one of the largest malls in the MB area. The newspapers here have had a field day with this. The Myrtle Manor sign was brought in and placed towards the back of park and the trailers used were brought in along with the actors. Myrtle Manor is the made up name and people do live in Patrick (actual name of the place). I do not know why that particular park was chosen. I imagine that the real residents of the park were unwilling to be a part of a fake "reality" show.
MB stands fro Myrtle Beach.
so she didn't REALLY voilate Fair housing policy in the begining when she said that if she doesn't want to rent to someone, she doesn't have anything ot rent??

So was this trailer park special before they filmed it? Like the ultimate place to live amongst white trash?
I find it funny that on the Wikipedia page, it says this about the weiner business:
Chelsey is the owner of a start-up hot dog business on wheels named Darlin' Dog. Her constant partying puts her career in jeopardy.
Her career? Do you have to have a certain level of professionalism to peddle weiners on the beach in your bikini?
Guess what I just did? I clicked on the story upthread about the stolen sign. Right where the video plays, it starts on the regular sign for the mobile home park and the phone number is visble. I turned back the clock to be 12 again and called them. They did answer 'Patricks Mobile Home Park' and it could have been Becky, or any lady with that same voice but I said I have the wrong number and with a happy voice she piped up an, "it's ok!!!" Ha. Yes, I am actually an adult, supposed to be working at my real job, but stuff like that just never stops being fun.

I drive to Myrtle Beach for work frequently and this had everyone enraged. Best peice of gossip is that one of the guys is apparently a stripper. Otherwise everyone was more upset that it was a total bore as opposed to phony. I'll be up there next week meeting with a contractor & will share any new info.

My dd lives in Pawley's.
Edited to add:
ShaNaeNae, that is funny! When I posted the link, I didn't realize that the video had the true sign with the phone number on it. I wonder how many people caught that and called that number?
For the record, Myrtle Beach has a lot of mobile homes. Most are permanent and in communities that are very well maintained. A lot of retired people

Saw the second episode rerun this afternoon, and it is a total farce. It's quite odd that no one hardly leaves the trailer park, or that there's a business - a beauty shop - inside of it. The residents are funny when they wonder how their hair will get cut when it's condemned, as if there aren't any other shops to go to.
I do have to say this is first time in many years I've watched anything on TLC, which once upon a time was The Learning Channel and had some decent, informative programming on it. But now, like almost every other cable channel, it has cheap, stupid "reality" programming. Jeez, even the Weather Channel doesn't have any weather on it anymore.
If this show lasts its whole first run, I'll be surprised.

It is just as stupid and fake, but I was surprised by looking at some of the resident's pages, they actually do live there. Amanda had a line of people who drove to the park lined up outside her trailer and apparantly they think nothing of knocking on the door at the butt crack of dawn.
But, seriously? These people go to a meeting to find out who pissed a bed? They're into eachothers business that much? Yeah, I can see that happening.
And Chelsie can't date a guy that has no drive? Says she who lives in a trailer park and sells weiners on the beach.
I have no admit Marvin cracks my shit up. "You think pee is yucky? Pee is part of you. It comes from inside you. So if you think pee is yucky, then you think you are yucky". And I'm totally rooting on him courting that crazy flamingo lady, what's her name? Ann?

As for Jared, he is the one that is/was a male stripper.
I watched the one from "biker" week. We have been visiting our daughter during biker week and you can't move for the bikes. Most of them go to a bar called Suck Bang Blow. I swear, that IS the name of the place!
edited because I forgot to add: Cecil is asking or special permission to sell Myrtle Manor tee shirts, etc at the trailer park. Seems they have to have a special permit to sell items in a residential area. I think it was reported that they hope to have the trailer up and running in the next couple of weeks. From what I have gathered from what Cecil has said,the show is not currently being filmed.

I'm like you, I've missed a few, caught a few, wasn't udderly bored.
Is it normal for a trailer park to rent out the trailer? I'm not all that familiar with trailer parks, but I thought it was like someone owned each one and they paid rent on the lot. I've never seen someone rent out the whole trailer. If she wants to make it the best trailer park ever, she's failing. Because all that golf cart/bull horn/busy body-ing would drive me right out of there.
Love the name of that bar, iluvobx! That's funny. I like that you always have a little insight from the show!

The park is actually a very nice park a couple of blocks from the beach. It has been there for a long time. When they show the actual park, you can see how well maintained it is and the different types of trailers/mobile homes that are in it. The trailers shown on the show, the sand, the sign and the above ground pool were all brought in by TLC just for the show. The are all located in the very back of the park. As I said, I really believe all that nonsense is strictly for the show and it is not how Patrick Trailer Park is actually ran.
I have been told that Suck Bang Blow is only open during biker week. I can say, that is the only time I have ever seen it open. The first time I saw the place, we were with our daughter's in-laws and they were the first to tell us about the place. The name tickles me too.
I stand corrected about when Suck Bang Blow is open. The original in Murrells Inlet is open everyday but the one down on 17 is the one that is open only during bike week and maybe the spring rally time. Maybe they were telling me about the one we passed on 17 being open and I misunderstood about it being both of them. Either way, the name is still a hoot!

I really think it is an act. I am not a fan of Marvin. They really could do without him. He doesn't seem to do anything except run around talking about piss and thinking Ann is hot.

Some rent the lots and some rent the lot and trailer that is on it. I believe that you can rent a trailer at Patrick Trailer. Some of the "trailer" park communities in MB, you owned your own place. Several are for "retires/seniors" only.
Here is a link about the souvenir trailer at Patrick Trailer Park aka Myrtle Manor
