The fourth season of TLC's Hoarding: Buried Alive premieres with 51-year-old Cary, a compulsive hoarder and Elvis impersonator with a heartbreaking story. Aw. Poor Cary.
On Sunday, July 8 at 9PM ET/PT, TLC brings back the hit series for a fourth season, revealing the heartbreaking yet astonishing stories of extreme hoarders. Going beyond the hoard, TLC also follows as the subjects meet with experts to reveal the psychology behind this obsession that has made daily existence unbearable. The network has ordered 18 episodes with nine premiering in July and an additional nine to air in 2013.
Each episode examines hoarders as they struggle to regain control of their uncontrollable behavior. This emotional attachment to objects is a debilitating condition that knows no demographic and if left untreated can destroy lives and break up families. Challenged by expert therapists and professional organizers, the hoarders attempt to reclaim their lives and relieve the distress.
TLC begins season four with the poignant story of 51-year-old Cary, who is both a compulsive hoarder and Elvis impersonator hiding behind his King of Rock ‘n' Roll garb. Over the course of two decades, Cary's paralyzing obsession with Elvis has taken over every inch of his 600 square foot apartment located in the outskirts of Manhattan. Now, with a home virtually uninhabitable and a bank account almost empty, Cary faces the possibility of parting ways with his memorabilia. Causing life changing ramifications, his obsession has crossed over into the realm of compulsive hoarding.
