Default Doomsday Prepper's house for sale?



Advertise Here

I saw a newer Doomsday Preppers last night, Psychic lady said voices told her there would be a comet collision with the earth, so they moved to an acreage above 3000ft in altitude. The acreage was previously owned by a prepper woman whose spirit she now "communicates" with. Articles on this family and their home, "Paragon Jewel":

Yeah if you scroll through the pics of the house on the link, it is beautiful

Spirit of former owner must have told them to get out!

Because it went into foreclosure, I believe.

http://news.investors.com/newsfeed-m...e-auction.aspx

The auction in February will be an Absolute Auction, with no minimum bid. Apparently it needs some work but that was pretty obvious from the condition of some of the rooms in the show.

Those people owned a gigantic home in North Carolina. This forclosed home is in West Virginia.

It isn't the same house. Sorry.

Read my second link, they used North Carolina false location for apparent OPSEC reasons. I believe it is the same house.

Cool house, close to where I used to live . . . but . . . . for that area, not worth the price.

What happened was, that NatGeo rented the place for the show and hired actors to play the part of nutty preppers. After the NatGeo folks were done, the real owners don't want anyone to associate them with that crap show, so they are selling it.

On the flip side, NatGeo made a mildly funny sitcom out of it.

Irish mom, who hears the disembodied voices of the dead, telling her to prep for a coming comet....what everyone else calls a paranoid schizophrenic, NatGeo calls a psychic prepper.

Her two sons arrive from Ireland, but have no idea that their mother has become a prepper...despite the fact that there is a HUGE NatGeo van parked outside, with the logo for "DOOMSDAY PREPPERS" emblazoned on the side. The place is crawling with camera men, lighting technicians, make up artists, a director and a sound technician that just wired both her sons up with a mic.

Their oldest son is having nothing to do with prepping and storms off the set...in just three takes, because there were lighting issues.

NatGeo has lost any pretense about doing a show about real preppers.

I'm not sure why anyone would call that a "good" house for a prepper.

Did anyone else see the look on the older boys face when he saw the gun. He looked terrified like it was going to jump out of his dads hands and attack him.
