What Happened To Lizard Lick Towing?
Lizard Lick Towing and Recovery is owned and operated by Lizard Lick Mayor Pro-tem Ronnie Shirley and his wife, Amy Shirley. Lizard Lick Towing was founded in 1998 by Ron Shirley and his wife, Amy Shirley, with a single truck. The company grew to 15 employees and a fleet of 20 trucks in ten years. Bobby Brantley is Ron’s friend and long-time coworker. After Ron had towed his truck, he began as a dissatisfied customer and began working at Lizard Lick to pay off his debt. In addition, Ron and Amy were supposed to participate in Wife Swap. Lizard Lick Towing is an American reality television show that premiered on truTV on February 7, 2011, as a spin-off of the series All Worked Up and ran for four seasons from February 7, 2011, to August 18, 2014.

Where Is Lizard Lick Towing?
The series follows Ron and Amy Shirley, Bobby Brantley, and their team of repossession agents in Wendell, North Carolina, a Raleigh suburb with jurisdiction over the Lizard Lick unincorporated area. According to the local Eastern Wake News, the television series began in late August 2008, when the station sent a cameraman down for one day of shooting, and that was all it took for a contract to be signed. Those at the network were merely prospecting at the time. Still, when they discovered Amy Shirley was not only a powerlifter but also a mortician and co-owner of the recovery business, they realised there was more to the picture than they had anticipated. The Raleigh News and Observer quoted Robyn Hutt, the TruTV executive in charge of the show, saying, “We really fell in love with Lizard Lick.” The Shirleys are described as “dynamic and entertaining characters.”
‘All Worked Up’ was the first television show to follow Ronnie and his business operations. TruTV later created a new show devoted entirely to the Shirleys. On February 7, 2011, the show debuted. The second season premiered on December 5, 2011; on January 21, 2013, the third season premiered; and on December 16, 2013, the fourth season premiered. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled after the fourth season.
Is Lizard Lick Towing Real?
According to USAToday, those who believe the show is the real point to the Lizard Lick towing company and its employees. That, however, proves nothing. Just because the company exists doesn’t mean TruTV couldn’t cast its employees in a spoof reality show. The same can be said for another TruTV show, All Worked Up. Even though the actors used to be real repo men, the show is a hoax.
Realising that the show is not only taking a little common sense. For example, in one scene, Bobby is left alone inside a tattoo parlour with six angry men who proceed to jump him and severely beat him up. Isn’t it funny that none of them touched the cameraman filming the entire thing? Or that no one called the cops during or after the incident?
If these scenes were true, the cops would be called almost every time. Bobby is also portrayed as single, even though he is married with children. I’m curious how those who believe the show is real will explain that one.
Who Owns Lizard Lick Towing?
Ron Shirley and his wife, Amy Shirley, founded Lizard Lick Towing in 1998 with a single truck. In ten years, the company expanded to 15 employees and a fleet of 20 trucks. Unfortunately, many people still believe the show is real. Scanning the show’s Facebook page reveals that, while many commenters accuse the show of being a hoax, others insist the action is real. These are most likely the same people who believe in professional wrestling. The authenticity of the scenes is constantly debated on the TruTV message boards. According to one recent poll, 62.5% of respondents thought the show was real, while only 37.5% thought it was a hoax, a poll result that is difficult to believe. There is nothing wrong with the show’s scripting. It’s only bad when viewers are duped into thinking they’re watching reality when they aren’t.
