Trivia

It later turned out that much of the subjects' stories were not as sincere as portrayed. Many were actually older than they said, the houses that Xzibit met them at were not theirs and, as one would guess, they already knew he was coming and were supposed to act surprised when they opened the door. It also turned out they made the cars look worse than they really did, and also added more trash and other things to match exactly what they were looking for. Furthermore, subjects were coached on how to react to their final reveal, and at least one person was taken aside and was as good as threatened for not showing as much enthusiasm on the reveal as they would've expected. Also, contrary to what was said, the pimping process took 6-8 months rather than a few days, and the subject was on the hook for their own alternative mode of transportation during that time.

So much fun to watch!
28 August 2004 | by Lady-of-RohanSee all my reviews

"Pimp my Ride" shows the best of the worst of today's awful cars. Rapper Xzibit will take someone's terrible rundown car to the incredible "West Coast Customs" shop and 'pimp' the car up with the most up-to-date electronics, interiors, rims, and paint jobs.

The transformation of these cars is jaw-dropping. At the beginning, the car are literally held together with duct tape and bungie cords. In the end, the car looks brand new with sound systems so loud they make dogs howl in a 5 mile radius.

Normally, I don't for MTV shows but this is an awesome surprise. This show is highly recommended.

10/10
