Barry Weiss was born on 11 February 1951, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is a reality television star, as well as a businessman. To the public, Barry Weiss is best known as a cast member of the reality television series called “Storage Wars”, which airs on the A&E network.

A noted reality television star, just how rich is Barry Weiss? According to sources, in regards to his overall net worth, Barry is estimated to have over $10 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his business ventures, as well as appearances on television screens. In 2010 alone he earned as much as $10,000 per episode of “Storage Wars”. One of Weiss’ most valuable assets is his mansion in Beverly Hills, the value of which is close to $2 million.

Barry was a businessman in the wholesale fruits and vegetables produce market for more than a quarter of a century, before he supposedly retired to travel, but his interest in sourcing and collecting vintage vehicles around the US brought him to the attention of the producers of “Storage Wars”. The show focuses on professional buyers who acquire abandoned storage lockers being auctioned, based solely on a five-minute inspection. Later, the buyers either sell the contents of the locker, hopefully for profit, or add items to their own collection or for sale from their own stores. Aside from Weiss, Darrell Sheets, Jarrod Schulz, Rene Nezhoda and Dan Dotson have been participating in the show. When the show premiered on television screens in 2010 on the A&E network, it received rather mixed reviews, with some critics claiming that “Storage Wars” provided entertainment, while others stated that the show was trivial and belonged to the “trash TV”. Over the years, the show has also met with criticism and concerns due to the authenticity of the remaining lockers. Nevertheless, the first season of the show managed to gain the attention of 2.1 million viewers, while season two attracted an average of over 5.1 million viewers per episode.

“Storage Wars” has inspired the release of numerous other television series, including its spin-off series called “Storage Wars: Texas” and “Storage Wars: New York”, as well as a variety of similar series, namely “Auction Hunters”, “Baggage Battles” and “Storage Hunters”.

Barry Weiss spent four seasons on the show, during which he became known as “The Collector”. His participation in the “Storage Wars” series gained him an opportunity to star in his own show, called “Barry’d Treasure”, which is another spin-off series , yet the premise of the show is quite different.  Weiss travels around  cities in the US in a search for rare items and antiques; Weiss truly lives up to his nickname as “The Collector”. To help him with his mission, some members from “Storage Wars” accompany him during his travels. The show first aired on television screens in March of 2014, with the first episode of the series entitled “The Candyman Can’t” attracting the attention of 1.87 million viewers in the US – just as its predecessor, “Barry’d Treasure” aired on the A&E network, and continued to add to Barry’s net worth, but ceased production in 2015, after which Barry virually disappeared from public view, which is the way he likes it.

In his personal life, Barry prefers to keep it private, but it is known that he has been married, although divorced for over 30 years; he has a son and a daughter.
