Dr. Rebecca Beaton has seen a lot of hoards through her years as a psychologist. Viewers have gone along with her on some pretty extreme cases on "Hoarding: Buried Alive" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on TLC). But nothing could prepare her for the volume and density of Randy's collection of stuff on the latest installment.
It was the densest hoard she said she had ever seen, and it was hard to argue that. Even with all the different hoards seen on the various television series spotlighting the illness, there's never been one that contained wall-to-wall stuff in every room, packed nearly to the ceiling.
Randy is out of paths, and doesn't even have low places in the house to settle into anymore, save for the one spot he's carved out for himself to nestle in. Basically his home is now the functional size of a closet, and not even a walk-in one.
The crew managed to clear out three dumpsters worth of stuff from his apartment, but ultimately Randy just moved to a new place. A month after filming, his new place was reportedly still clear of clutter, so his prognosis may be solid. Perhaps the hoard had helped him reach that rock bottom that he needed to start digging himself out.
