I think the thing about “a million dollars” and “$225,000” is part of the editing process. The guy could have really been saying “We just live in a $225,000 house so we can afford karting”. And the editors just showed him saying “$225,000”. There is absolutely no way I would have even found this show if I wasn’t paying attention to the karting scene, so I doubt it will have any affect on the popularity of karting. I didn’t even know we got TruTV!
