"Storage Wars" co-star Jarrod Schulz says: "The problem I have with Dave and people like Dave is they feel like they're the only people in the world that have a family, that need to provide, that need to make a living, so they have to suck it all in for themselves." 2. HE'S ARROGANT GQ says Hester's greediness "manifests itself in gaudy, embarrassing displays of self-importance, whether outbidding Jarrod and Brandi [Passante] to force them into financial destitution or driving a giganti "Yuuuuup!'-emblazoned truck." ing YOUUP! 3. HE'S ANNOYING His "Yuuup!" catchphrase grates on people's nerves. More to the point, as noted by GQ, Hester comes off as a "small, insecure human being" who is "loathsome." Yuuup, that stings. "Reality TV villains are a common and necessary thing, but they don't get more explicitly detestable than this guy," GQ says.
