Cindy Struggles to Let Go of Her Belongings During Tonight’s Episode

In the sneak peek clip above, host Matt Paxton attempts to help Cindy remove a trailer from the property. Although a couple offers to auction the trailer for $3-4,000, Cindy is convinced it’s worth more than that, and isn’t willing to let it go.
“This is an opportunity to make more than anybody has offered you on this,” Paxton tells Cindy, who immediately questions the offer. “I would keep that trailer, I wasn’t planning on selling that trailer,” Cindy responds. “I need to sell things, but out of all the things here that need to be sold that I don’t want, that trailer is one thing that I use and want to keep.”
Paxton looks visibly frustrated as he tries to explain that he’s got people lined up and ready to remove everything from the trailer and auction it off. “I’ve got two guys ready to unload that, do I have them unload it or do I come over here?” he asks Cindy, who tries to deflect the question and direct Paxton’s men to another section of the yard. He presses her further about the black trailer and she replies, “I don’t want to sell it.”
Paxton again explains that everyone at her house is just trying to help Cindy get her hoard under control. She tells him she wants to “get the offers in and go from there,” and when Paxton explains that he already has an offer for her, she says she has somebody coming to look at lunch, so it’s clear Cindy is going to have a hard time letting go of her belongings.
