Unsurprisingly (but amusingly), a lot of Pimp My Ride now revealed to be fake

In news that should come as a shock to no one, The Huffington Post is reporting that much of the auto work done on ’00s MTV reality show Pimp My Ride was sub-standard, to say the least. The site interviewed several of the show’s “contestants” (a.k.a. people who volunteered their shitty rides to be on TV) who said that, after the cameras left, they were left with barely-functioning cars, many of which were downright dangerous to drive. One contestant, Justin Dearinger, even told HuffPo that his car spontaneously exploded years later, albeit after he’d done some work to it on his own.

Other revelations include the fact that producers actually took out a lot of the stuff in the cars after the shoot, like in Dearinger’s case. His car lost its “pop-up” champagne cooler because the network didn’t want to encourage him to drink and drive, and its “drive-in theater” because it wasn’t street legal. Other items were placed into the cars for aesthetics but never actually worked, like a robotic arm placed in one contestant’s car that was “controlled by commands that were entered into a laptop by the spiky haired guy off screen,” but was really just “a robotic arm with a bunch of wires hanging out of it.”
