I love it. Those people are fascinating. We all have emotional or psychological issues to contend with, but who else lays them around on the furniture like that, or stacks them up so high? Plus, it makes me feel like my house is super clean, and motivates me to clean which is always a struggle for me. I think, wow, it's going to take that person months to get their house in order, I can shape this place up in like 2 hours! Or, wow their house is totally full, I just have full closets and I could clean one out and be done in a day!

we had actual hoarders two condos away from ours -- they were finally evicted and it has taken 9 months for the various services to gut and get the condo back to being ready to sell. it was horrific.

My ex-husbands grandpa was like that with his house. I didn't know the name for it back then though.

these people were trash hoarders- both of the upstairs bedrooms were unsuable b/c they were full of trash- you couldn't even open the doors, the family slept downstairs on air mattresses... the trash was piled to the ceiling.

I've seen a lot that had cats, and critters. Maybe that's why I can watch the show, I don't imagine what it's like living there. I just become very aware of what it's like to live in my house and that show makes my house look outstanding. I have a complex with all the SAHMs in my area and their excellent taste in decorating and nice granite cabinets and clean floors with everything dusted even if you showed up for a last minute playdate. Meanwhile I live in a log cabin with 5 men who all think dirt belongs on you and in your house as much as it belongs outside, two girls who know no limits on the number of outfits that can be worn in a day, kids who appear to trail belongings behind them, and on top of that I hate dusting, I'm OCD about my dishwasher and laundry, I'm not a neat freak by any stretch. I find cleaning to be one of my top things to procrastinate, except when I watch that show, it makes me want to vacuum even!

Thinking about it, it seems so silly. I procrastinate vacuuming when the only carpeted areas I have to vacuum are the kids smallish bedroom and one rug in the living room.
