Grown Woman Hoards Hundreds Of Thousands Of Dolls

Typically, the people featured on A&E's Hoarders suffer serious health risks because their homes become unhygienic messes due to dust or mold or or broken toilets; there's an inability to clean because there's simply too much clutter.

She collects dolls — hundreds of thousands of them — that she washes and repairs (in what she calls her "doll surgeries," conducted in a makeshift doll hospital she set up in her home).

This isn't even the most horrifying Hoarders ep by far. The one where the dad and his adult daughter were living in a house without working plumbing and the cleaners opened a door to find a mountain of plastic bags they'd been shitting in and then tossing in the closet/stairwell/room...? Yikes. I've definitely gotten rid of a lot of crap in my house as a result of this show (I should say, as a result of my fear of being ON this show).
