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?

MTV's BUCKWILD premieres tonight. The controversial new series follows a group of nine young, carefree, and adventurous friends from West Virginia who "love to dodge grown-up responsibilities" and "find unique ways to create their own fun." Pretty much, if you combine Jersey Shore, Jackass, and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo… you get BUCKWILD.
That said, according to executive producer John Stevens, BUCKWILD isn't all about the mud racing, body licking, squirrel hunting, reckless driving, and garbage throwing you've seen in the previews. (though that does sound lovely)
John says, "Look at any TV or movie trailer out there, and it will grab your attention with the most outrageous stuff. That's just a formula that broadcasters and movie companies have used forever. I don't think that's indicative of what the show is. BUCKWILD has a lot of wild moments to it, but I think it's got tons of heart, and I think you're going to see some really fun kinds of relationships."
MTV mirrors John's sentiment, stating, "The BUCKWILD cast's bond with family and friends is always at the core for this eccentric group where anything goes!"
