The Florida Keys episode featured a Wisconsin couple shopping for an island who "bought" "Charlies Island" off of Marathon Florida. That island has been owned by a Wisconsin LLC since 2004, is currently for sale by owner with a Wisconsin telephone number and the Florida tax assessor shows no record of a sale since 2004.
I understand repackaging reality to fit the 30 minute format but I wonder if in this case it was possible that the house shoppers were in fact house sellers?
I knew most of these programs were somewhat staged and/or "dramatized," but to outright lie about the buying and selling is immoral.
Too bad about the one in the florida keys. I do know the other episode about the yacht captains is true. I travel the bahamas exuma islands and have met captains Peter and Kim of M/Y Island Time, I am a captain myself and the area is a perfect place in need of a resort. They really did buy leaf cay and they are building a resort there. I don't know the status on construction but I can tell you it is an amazing place to visit. Wish them well!
Captain Geo M/Y MEME
I remember that show. I adored that couple, and their cute grandson they got to keep a while on the island. They also wanted to make sure no "zombies" were on the island! Hilarious.
Wasn't the show taped in 03 or 04? A Wisconsin LLC, perhaps that couple (from Wisconsin) OWNS that LLC. I know properties can change hands with names of LLCs, it's a privacy thing. Your post does not at all "prove" that they did not purchase said island, as a matter of fact, it tells me that they actually did.
