Giveaway: Win a copy of Hoarders Season 1 on DVD


Here’s a contest for the obsessive collector segment of our audience. Hoarders Season 1 hits DVD on May 25th and thanks to the fine folks at A&E, we have a copy for giveaway here at The Documentary Blog! The two disc set features all seven episodes from the first season of this hit television series. Here’s the synopsis:

Take a fascinating look inside the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis.

Whether they’re facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, these hoarders are desperately in need of help. In each 60-minute episode of Hoarders, A&E follows two people struggling to overcome their compulsive behavior while experts work to put them on the road to recovery. For some, throwing away even the tiniest possession a sponge, a button, an empty box is so painful that they won t be able to complete the cleaning process…no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organizer’s guidance give them the strength to recover. At the end of each episode find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior at bay and who, despite help, is still lost inside this painful disease.

To win this two-disc set, simply send an email here with ‘HOARDERS DVD CONTEST’ in the subject line and I’ll pick a winner sometime next week! Good luck! As an added bonus, I’ve included a link to a video tour we shot of our good friend Reed Farrington’s house. He’s not quite hoarder material, but certainly enjoys surrounding himself with odd things. Check it out after the jump.
