The MTV series Pimp My Ride was a popular reality show during the mid-2000s. Xzibit, the American rapper, and West Coast Customs—who were replaced by Galpin Auto Sports after four seasons—would help restore or "pimp out" totaled vehicles for young car owners. But as it turns out, a major chunk of the reality show was scripted. Unbelievable? Yes. True? Sadly, yes! A lot of secrets emerged after the show went off air.Seth Martino, a contestant, claimed that the TV screens installed in his car stopped working, and the LED lights installed in the seats got so hot that driving with them on was impossible. He also added that he had to take out the gull-wing doors in the back as the mechanism restricted the installation of seat belts for the back seat. And that’s not all. Many other contestants had modifications on their cars removed before they drove off after filming an episode of the "reality show." Based on reports, some mods were unsafe for the road, and some were not even street-legal.
