It was off to Orange County this week for Auction Hunters
, and when you head to Orange County you get lots of rich people leftovers. With only three units up for bid it was a highly competitive week for Ton and Allen. How did they fair against the biggest auction crowd they've ever faced? Let's find out. All-new episodes air Tuesdays at 10PM/9c
Sold For: $7,100
This was a first time adventure for Ton and Allen. Stuffed animals? Really?! The two animals, their expert soon informed them, were a mule deer native to Mexico and a Desert Big Horn Sheep. The first was worth nearly four grand to stuff, while the latter; well . . . it's over 60 thousand just to shoot! When the initial offer of $5,500 came in, Ton and Allen weren't very impressed. The expert told them what they had and they were in turn eager to get what they deserved. Finally, the three settled on a fair price, a price that will go down as one of their biggest sales ever.
Following this week's auction, neither Ton nor Allen thought they'd get as much as they did for the taxidermied animals, but sometimes it's also nice to be surprised. This week the dynamic dug deep into their pockets and paid $2,760
for just the one room. Luckily, after forking over so much cash they fixed their balance sheet by taking in a cool $9,600
for all the guns, including the 30-30 rifle, as well as the stuffed animals. When you do the math, the guys took home a very respectable $6,840
in pure profit. Almost a full two grand more than they did last week, a nice win in Orange County for the Auction Hunters!
We had our weekly Facebook matchup, pitting the two items above against each other, waiting to see what our fans would choose as the most valuable item. Turns out you were equally fooled. Many of you guessed that the guns would bring home the most bacon, but once again the animals proved somebody wrong.
