Nominated for a 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program, Hoarders returns in season five with more unbelievable stories. Each episode captures the drama as experts work to put troubled individuals on the road to recovery. Find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior under control and who has fallen into the deep end of this painful disease. In the season premiere, paramedics rushing to save a woman's life lose precious time when they're forced to climb over the hoard they find in Norman's house. Within an hour of being told his girlfriend is dead, his property is condemned. Norman is given 30 days to clean up, or he could lose his house forever.
