This scary cable TV series has become so popular that it has spawned a whole tourist industry in the small southern town where it is filmed.
All the tour guides are licensed and insured and have buses and schedules and permits and a meeting place and an itinerary.
Well, except for one.
The father of the child star of the show started operating his own “tour.”
His tour has no bus, no schedule, no business license, no meeting place.
You drive your own car.
While other tour guides are operating lawfully, this guy is leading dozens of people around the town, trespassing on private property, and completely ignoring any of the safety rules the other tour operators follow.
According to the townspeople, he is both a nuisance and an insurance nightmare waiting to happen.
It may not be as bad as a zombie apocalypse, but it is a significant problem for them.
The town has asked him to stop, but he laughs at them.
“I’m the father of the star of the show!
I’ll tell the producers to change locations and your town will lose!”
While it is doubtful that he has that kind of clout, the townspeople don’t want to test his claims.
By the way, he used to say that all the money he charges for the tours went straight to charity.
However, his lack of employment made people question that claim.
Now he simply says that his tours “support” those charities.
Oh, and bring an extra $40 in cash if you want an autographed picture of his kid.
Yes, it’s all very shady.
