If you’re looking for reality T.V. of a higher caliber, A&E’s Storage Wars is worth checking out. It showcases the process, subculture, and wacky misadventures of auctioneers and bidders of storage lockers. These storage lockers are at least three months behind on rent and can be auctioned by the locker owner. This leads to some interesting finds and heated debates among bidders. If you’ve wondered what the original cast of Storage Wars has been up to, you’re in for a surprise.
The Gambler Makes Some Life Changes
Darrell Sheets, a.k.a. “The Gambler,” made the biggest score on the show to date. He once bought an entire locker for $3,600, which contained artwork worth over $300,000. Since the show, he has undergone some major life changes. He’s been able to lose over 40 pounds, saying that hope for a better future pushed him to change: “I knew life would be much sweeter when I achieved my goal. Now, I want to spread that message of hope to others. If I can change one life at a time by helping someone get off the couch, I will be happy.”
The Dotsons Strike Gold
Husband-and-wife team Dan and Laura Dotson were fan favorites on Storage Wars. They were the primary auctioneers on the show and were always having fun with each other and the bidders. After the show, they founded their own auctioneering company, American Auctioneers, which received special attention for one item they sold. The Dotsons once auctioned off a storage locker for $500 that contained over $7.5 million in cash inside.
Barry Weiss Takes A Break From T.V.
Barry Weiss was one of the most profitable bidders for A&E. After Storage Wars, he received not one but two spinoff series, Barry’d Treasure and Storage Wars: Barry Strikes Back with co-host Kenny Crossley. Since he left A&E, Barry has been happy being a self-proclaimed “professional slacker.” However, he admits he would be interested in doing another show about classic cars and motorcycles if given the opportunity.
The Mogul Gets The Boot
Dave Hester, a.k.a. “The Mogul,” was not exactly popular on the show, but he served as the necessary evil to make the show what it was. However, Hester stirred the waters too much when he claimed the show was largely staged. He was let go from A&E, and promptly filed a wrongful termination lawsuit, claiming he was “not comfortable participating in this charade.” He won the suit and returned to the show for a short time. Now, he operates as an independent auctioneer.
Brandi And Jarrod Make It Big After ‘Storage Wars’
Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz were beloved by Storage Wars fans for their on-screen dynamic and interesting buys. They received so much praise that A&E gave them their own spinoff show, Brandi & Jarrod: Married to the Job in 2014. Since the show, they’ve maintained their own clothing line, Outlaw Apparel, and operate a thrift store Now and Then Second Hand Store.
