Roy freely admits he's the world's biggest cheapskate and he's proud of it. TLC followed Roy and other penny pinchers around for their new documentary, "Extreme Cheapskates." Cameras caught Roy grabbing leftover food from other people's tables at restaurants. He uses paper towels more than once and was even caught picking up grains of rice off of a dirty sidewalk. Nasty.
Unfortunately for Roy's wife, it was 25th anniversary and Roy wasn't about to splurge. He jumped into a dumpster to find her some tokens of (in) affection. It was Roy's lucky day. He discovered some half-dead roses and a used tea pot in the trash. What a stud. Then, he went to his local discount store and bought her some animal crackers and a bottle of water for 15 cents. To top it all off, he recycled a "get well soon" card, scratching off the words to fit the occasion. It's amazing that she didn't go running to divorce court 25 years ago.
You can see Roy and other cheap fools in TLC's "Extreme Cheapskates" On Demand.
