Wife Looking to Prove a Painting's Not a Rembrandt on 'Buried Treasure' (VIDEO)

'Buried Treasure'One couple looked like they might have been looking for 'The Marriage Ref' rather than 'Buried Treasure' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). This wife was bound and determined to prove once and for all that her husband was wasting money on paintings that weren't nearly what he thought they were.

"When the Keno brothers tell me that the Rembrandts are real, I'm gonna be riding back in style and JoAnn's gonna be riding back on her broom," the husband said.

But at the reveal, she got a taste of sweet victory when the bigger painting was confirmed to not be a Rembrandt, as the husband had hoped. He'd paid $3,000 for it. But before she could rub it in, the Keno brothers revealed that a smaller sketch he'd paid $400 for was, in fact, a Rembrandt, and was worth $20,000.

To make matters worse for JoAnn, the big painting was from a more obscure contemporary of Rembrandt and was still valued at $10,000. All in all, while the husband didn't have quite what he thought he did, he certainly proved that he was getting his money's worth, and then some.
