Sadly, this one is not all that shocking. One of the people featured on the reality show that chronicles the struggles of people afflicted with the urge to “hoard” is apparently being investigated by child services.

RadarOnline brings us this little ditty, which includes a sneak peak at the episode set to air this Sunday night. The man, named Floyd, is literally buried in junk and filth. So much that even his older daughter cringes as she leaves the two younger kids with him, saying:

“I feel bad for these kids…They can’t take care of themselves yet. They don’t know what’s going on and it’s just sad.”

The video shows who seems like he truly loves his children, but in my estimation has a serious mental health issue. His busted trailer really looks like something The Hills Have Eyes.

The kids seem relatively happy, but what I don’t understand is what the hell the other daughter is thinking. She even says she is scared for the children, which by the way is time perfectly with a clip of a ginormous spider lurking around by a window.

Could she be culpable if child protection does decide to take action? I suppose that would depend on her age, which is unclear right now, but she certainly seems with it enough to show concern.

TLC is plugging the heck out of this episode, and is offering up a few different video clips teasing the craziness. In one of the videos a woman claiming to be a phsychologist tells Lloyd that she has to call CPS because, in her words, he is “harming” the kids.

It’s all pretty disturbing, but hopefully things get straightened out after authorities get involved. Most likely, he’ll have a time frame to clean up his act, and if all goes as planned, he will be reunited with the kids afterwards…

Stay tuned to TLC Sunday at 9/8c.
