On The Rise: Reality TV Personality Anthony Galanda Makes Debut On TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates
New York bred Anthony Galanda is a bartender who lives with his mom, and it is time for him to move out. Anyone who has ever spent time in New York knows how tough it is to save money, while trying to find a place to live. However, on this episode of Extreme Cheapskates the penny-pinching bartender from Astoria, Queens is hell bent on finding the best deal New York has to offer. His frugal ways will make misers look like Lil Wayne at the strip club.
If you’re a fan of people who like to barter. Anthony will teach you how to haggle, hustle, and game people the New Yorker way. A lot of reality shows have portrayed the New York experience. However, in most cases they have been shows that depict mostly the glamorous aspects of living in New York. This program will show us how an average New Yorker with minimal resources makes things happen in the concrete jungle.
Anthony is part of the new generation of Italian American New Yorkers who grew up watching Jersey Shore, Mob Wives, and Love and Hip Hop. However, “Cheap Skate” Anthony is unique compared to a lot of those cast members because of his urban upbringing. Astoria is one of the most culturally diverse areas in the world. Subsequently, that is how he learned how to interact with all types of people, and develop a universally charismatic sense of humor. He can relate, and hustle anyone from any background without being politically insensitive.
Looking at Anthony you envision a Pauly D from the Jersey Shore. However, his swagger and demeanor doesn’t come from fist pumping or dancing techno in the clubs. It comes from growing up and engaging in all walks of life, all over one of the toughest cities in the world.
Look out for this budding reality TV star. It is rare you get to see one of New York’s native sons show the nation how to save cheddar to live better. Anthony’s episode of Extreme Cheapskates will air Wednesday at 9pm EST on TLC.
