Forget the others, we're calling it that Billy will be the breakout star of the series. Leroy is already well known in Manhattan as the proprietor of Billy's Antiques and Props, a controversial tent shop right on Houston Street and The Bowery. Constantly in clashes with both the NYC police and neighborhood boards, Billy is a smooth talker, sharp dresser and a straight-up interesting figure, not to mention that he's looking to buy to satisfy some of the pickiest design palates in the worldthose of New Yorkers. In fact, he's the only thing really drawing us into watching the series; if we wanted to see auctions and old junk being sold for a meh profit, there's already plenty other reality shows doing that exact thing already.
So, in other possible excitement, we can't wait for the future law suits that come from viewers spotting their lost Chanel bags and Rolex watches. Just the intro to the show will scare anyone who decides that checking bags is better than carrying on: "Every day, millions of people travel and 70,000 bags are lost in airports around the world." Just think about that figure, 70,000. They're not very clear on if that's actually the count per day or what, but it's high regardless. That's a lot of stuff parted from the original owners, stripped of sentimental value and turned around for pure worth value alone.
