While the concept of Storage Wars is certainly pretty straightforward, it has, nevertheless, captured enough attention and viewership to keep on running for eight years and 12 seasons since it premiered nearly a decade ago in 2010. Check out the behind-the-scenes of Storage Wars, the most bizarre items found inside the units, and the stories surrounding the cast of the show.
Hester Says It’s Staged, And A&E Didn’t Argue It
David Hester is perhaps the most opinionated personality on the show and he almost always speaks what’s inside his head. In 2012, Hester alleged that Storage Wars was purely a staged act and the that producers would plant items inside the units to make the show interesting. Normally, we don’t put much weight on what Hester says but it seemed quite fishy that A&E didn’t even make an attempt to rebut his claim. The producers simply stated that Hester had the right to express his opinion.
David Hester actually filed a lawsuit against the show on December 2012 after he was booted out of the show exclaiming that it was unjust and also that the Storage Wars was completely rigged. The case was later resolved in July 2014 and following a settlement, the Storage Wars star would immediately return to the show in the same year.
Thanks To His Aunt, Jarrod’s In The Business
People help people to succeed. Indeed, it’s difficult to pursue all your dreams in life if there is no who you can rely on for support during the ebb and flow of the process. Bill Clinton notably aided his friend Barack Obama in winning his presidential electoral campaign and eventually in navigating the political scenery that followed. American rap and hip-hop legends Dr. Dre and Eminem were instrumental in launching the music career of their friend 50 Cent.
For Jarod, he had his aunt and partner Brandi to thank for in transforming his troubled past into a promising future. His aunt was, in fact, an owner of a public storage facility where Jarod would spend some time with and ultimately led him to enter into the storage hunting business. Jarod’s partner, on the other hand, provided him the necessary mental and emotional support to accomplish his dreams.
