Steve McHugh from "Barter Kings" stars in the A&E reality series.

When Steve McHugh of Hesperia, California, got laid off from his job as a car salesman, he was forced to start bartering to support his wife, Cindy, and their two young boys. Little did he know he'd be able to make a good living at it, and be able to spend more time with his family in the process! He negotiated his first "real" trade when he was 22 years old, exchanging an HO water ski for a set of golf clubs. In one of his most interesting trades, he would go on to trade a boa constrictor for a car stereo, which he then traded for a rare French horn, which he finally traded for gold buillon.

Steve now runs a trading post with his good friend and business partner, Antonio Palazzola, and earns an extra $3,000 to $5,000 a week trading. He says he doesn't plan on teaching his sons the trading business because they watch him and do it themselves anyway. His older son has already traded rooms with his younger brother so that he could get the more comfortable bed.
