Storage Wars stars Barry Weiss is still going strong. Season 14 of the reality show just premiered on Tuesday, November 2. He made his big return to the series after he was involved in a motorcycle accident. Fans want to learn more about him, including his income status.
His accident kept him out of work for some time. So, it makes sense as to why they want to know about his net worth. He became a popular reality star thanks in part to his love with storage-treasure hunting. Barry became a breakout star on the A&E reality series, which he appeared from 2010 to 2013.
Who is the Storage Wars star?
The Storage Wars star should not be confused with the music producer who shares the same name. This Barry Weiss is known for collecting valuable antiques. Barry Weiss became so popular that A&E gave him his own show call Barry’d Treasure in 2014. He also starred in Storage Wars: Barry Strikes Back (2015) and Beverly Hills Garage – The Bruce Meyer Project (2019). Long before his history with storage collecting, he appeared on Motorcycle Mania III in 2004.
Before he became a reality star, Weiss worked with his brother in the produce business. The two spent over 25 years building a wholesale produce business. Weiss eventually retired to focus on storage hunting. This booming business gave him the money he needed to retire and travel the world. He is reported to be in the millions, but more on that later.
Weiss eventually quit traveling to focus on his multi-million-dollar business focused on antiques and collectibles. He claims he doesn’t make as much as his Storage Wars co-stars because he keeps most of the items he wins. He is good friends with Thom Beers, who is the executive producer and narrator of the show, which led him to join the series. Weiss left the show after Season 4 when he starred in his own spinoff series.
