Which Hoarders therapist is the best?

I'm spending my Christmas Eve cleaning my apartment and binge-watching Hoarders.

I've never liked Robin Zasio

Robin Zasio looks like Tonya Harding.

I think Chabaud had a stroke

Dr. Vivian Vance: "This house has sufficient."

I'm surprised that Zasio's getting so much love

These people don't need mollycoddling by therapists. They just need a good beating.

No love for Tolin? I think he's one of the better ones

Lol @ OP typing Dr. Chaubaud’s Louisiana accent. Love her. Sorry to hear she had a stroke.

Melva is probably most effective to me. though.

Whatever you do don’t call Stericlean. They are franchised and don’t seem to have much oversight.

When they're able to salvage the homes containing some of the worst hoards, I have to wonder if the houses still smell.

It would seem impossible to really eradicate the stench of decades of accumulated filth.

r9 my favorite Chabaud moment is the episode in which she entered a hoarder's home in open-toed sandals and stood in the bathroom surrounded by shit.

Forget therapist. Get a dumpster. Clean the place out. Hoarder will have good cry. Returns to empty house.

Dr. Chabaud seems a little "out there," but I think that probably makes her a good therapist.

You know it's gonna be a good one when Dr. Melva Green arrives on the scene. Waist high piles of shit don't negate her freshness.

My favorite episode of these shows was the one where the wife was about to reveal to her unsuspecting husband that she had rented an entire vacant store in their downtown and filled it to the brim with more of her crap.

He knew of the two off site storage spaces he was paying for, but he didn't have a clue about the rented store.

Hilarity ensued.

Dr. Suzanne Chabaud is my favorite.

I love it when Dr. Melva Green changes wigs mid-episode.

I've been watching a lot of old episodes.

Something about Robin Zasio doesn't ring true to me. On the other hand, Suzanne Chabaud seems the most genuine.

by Anonymousreply 22January 22, 2023 11:29 AM

He doesn't appear in many episodes, but David Tolin is good

by Anonymousreply 23January 23, 2023 10:09 PM

David Tolin was a hot cub a few years ago, but he let himself pork out

Not to derail the thread topic, but Matt Paxton (Extreme Cleaning Specialist, esq.) is also pretty sexy to me. He carries weight pretty well and has southern charm. Like I’m sure he’s sucked a dick in a barn. He may have been cleaning said barn, but I feel he probably sucked that penis. But he has 7 kids, so he’s surely lost by now. He also looks like he gets sloppy drunk.

by Anonymousreply 25January 23, 2023 10:25 PM

I find Matt Paxton more effective and hands-on than some of the therapists, r25

The most compelling case to me was Sandra Cowart and the gay couple who got sick of her bullshit.

That was an epic episode r29. That house was gorgeous, and she completely trashed it. She was a successful interior designer with a beautiful house and quite well-off and she destroyed it all, living in a van or camper which was also hoarded.

I understand that hoarding is a mental illness, but most of these hoarders are so nasty, selfish and spiteful it's pretty much impossible to feel sorry for them.

Robin Zasio, always perfectly coiffed and dressed to the nines..........and surrounded by piles of garbage and human shit in a house that looks like it's going to collapse all around her any second. Even squalor and human feces aren't going to stop her glamour.
