Shain Gandee is most definitely the breakout star of BUCKWILD. MTV describes Shain as "a trash collector … and quite possibly inebriated at any given moment, refers to himself as Gandee Candy, and every time he speaks, you need subtitles to understand him. Needless to say, he's amazing."
Yes, Shain is amazing in a tire rollin', muddin' kind of way, but apparently he's no longer a trash collector. Rumor has it that Shain lost his sanitation job well before BUCKWILD began filming last spring. According to the Charleston Daily Mail, Shain was let go in November 2011 for "violating the personnel policy."
Color me confused because Shain is seen throwing trash bags into a South Charleston trash truck on the BUCKWILD series premiere. Why the lie?

Also during the premiere, Shain said, "Who do you know that loves to get out here and sling trash? Working on a garbage route is hard. I’d like to see some of these people get out here and do it.” Is he too "inebriated" to know he's been fired? Hit his head too many times?
Gerald Burgy, the South Charleston director of public works, did not elaborate on why Shain was fired. That said, he shared, “He was a hardworking kid that came to work every day. He was a fun-loving kid.”
Gerald added, "I started to watch the show, but I didn't find it very interesting. I didn't think it was very funny, either."
Love it or hate it… two more episodes of BUCKWILD air tonight on MTV.
