This show made everyone want to do a deluxe makeover to their old, beat-up ride. However, former contestants of this popular show have recently come forth saying that the “reality” part of it was not always the truth.
1. Pimp My Ride.
The show was hosted by rapper Xzibit in which contestants received a vehicle make-over in the most extreme way!
2. Justin Dearinger – 1997 Toyota RAV 4.
This former contestant tells his story to Reddit (Ask Me Anything). He revealed that “they actually take out a lot of the stuff that they showed on TV.” That is, he never got to keep the “pop-up champagne contraption and a drive-in theater.”
3. Making It Worse.
Dearinger also states that his vehicle was made to look worse than it actually was. Instead, the bumper was made to, “look like it was falling off” and some of the exterior paint was removed to highlight the exterior damage.
