What about Alan and Ton over on Spike's "Auction Hunters"? Don't tell me that's not real!

Amazing how they always win two units at every auction they go to.

You don't think the storage unit manager tips them off to what is in there beforehand, do you?

Finally something I have insider info for! LOL

but seriously, my mother bids on these things for a living here in DFW, and storage wars came out to the area and she was one of the top 5 contestants. She ended up dropping out because she didn't really like the producers, and told me she didn't really care though, because she found out it's all staged. the units they are bidding on aren't even the units they are showing. Pay attention to the position of the sun ;)

Re: A&E's "Storage Wars" is FAKE!
Although it may not come as a huge surprise that "reality" TV is somewhat contrived, Storage Wars has taken it to a new level that places the entire industry in doubt.

Storage Wars is an American reality television series on the A&E Network that premiered in 2010. The show features auctioneers Dan Dotson and Laura Dotson, as well as auction hunters Dave Hester, Darrell Sheets, Barry Weiss, and the team of Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante. When rent is not paid on a storage locker for three months in California, the contents are sold by an auctioneer as a single lot of items. The show follows professional buyers who purchase the contents based only on a five-minute inspection and what they can see only from the door when it is opened. The goal is to turn a profit on the merchandise.

Great concept, and the show is entertaining, the only problem being the show is completely fake. And I mean 100% phony...as for Brandi's breasts, the jury's still out on that one.

Personally, I suspect they're real and they're spectacular!

The show was started by Dan Dotson and his wife, Laura. Dan and Laura Dotson appear in every episode as the auctioneer and his wife. Dan has been been playing this role for nearly 40 years and is the owner of American Auctioneers.

Dan Dotson paid Dave Hester, Darrell Sheets, Barry Weiss, Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante $12,000 each for 6 episodes of Storage Wars in 2010. Of course these salaries are about 20X higher now and all the fake money they don't make each episode is peanuts to the real money A&E shells out.

This is where the reality ends and the fantasy begins.

Lani, I have been to many storage auctions myself and from my experiences this show is very fake. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that noone puts $750 worth of poker chips in a storage unit. They put them in their pocket! That episode, Jarrod and Brandi were staying at the same vegas hotel they cashed in the chips at, oh yeah and btw, they made sure that they showed the casinos name on the episode. Plus-- if you are an experienced storage unit auction goer, you know that most of the yards are corrupt. Nothing is stopping the owner for cutting the lock himself, taking the good stuff then putting a new lock on it then up for auction. He is DOUBLE DIPPING... FOR GENERAL AMERICANS BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL WHEN CONSIDERING THIS TYPE OF "SO CALLED DEAL"....

Thad 07/31/2012 07:03
Everyone on this show except for Dan and Laura Dotson and Dave Hester are actors. Barry Weiss made a fortune in the produce business, and the rest of the cast are simply character actors. The show is as fake as it gets, and the poor suckers that watch the show and believe the crew (especially Barry) don't sneak treasures into the units to "find" on air are ignorant of the business. I see them buying $100 units for $1,000 everyday, they go broke and go away, but there's always another sucker to take his place. Dan Dotson cleans up on commissions with these unrealistic suckers.

Grow up, people!!!


Dan 08/07/2012 12:18
@Mike Jones: Jarrod and Brandi weren't staying at the hotel when they won the chips in an auction; they went to stay at the hotel AFTER winning an auction and finding the chips. Yes, they do plug many of the appraisers, etc., in the course of the show; I imagine that's a condition for getting permission to show the appraisers and others.

why does everything have to resort to calling people haters for simply disagreeing? Or for stating an obvious truth? Calling people "haters" is just a persons way of redistributing and displacing fault to those whose fault it's not. It's another way of those who are being supposedly "hated" to not work on themselves as people. It's basically saying "it's a you issue that I'm am asshole, cheat, faker, and corrupt, lying person."

Actually the show is 100% real and the moron writing this article offers a lot of opinion with ZERO evidence. They record many many auctions, focus on only the ones where their stars win, and then use editing to remove all the boring parts. These are real auctions, real bids. Some of the value placed on items may be inflated, but that does not make the show fake. The author of this article needs to go back to journalism school because this is complete garbage.

It's not that it became corrupted; it was corrupted from the start. I was at the first filming of this fake and everyone of the crew except Dave Hester didn't even know how to bid. Barry acted like he owned the show and was ordering people around and Jarrod is as dumb as a post. I've been doing this for 20 years and this show and others like it have ruined the business for everyone. The real victims are the suckers who come out with unreasonable expectations, buy a unit for ten times what it's worth, and loose all their money.

Reply
Dan 08/07/2012 12:24
Dave, Darrell and Jarrod and Brandi are in business, are they not? (Barry is spending the money he received from selling his produce business.) Do you really think A&E is subsidizing their businesses? I doubt it. A&E is paying each of regulars so much per episode for appearing but their businesses are going to succeed or fail based on whether they make a profit on the storage unit contents.


Ray Michael 08/06/2012 00:49
It is 100% 'real'. By that I want to clarify what real is. It is scripted, staged, set up, has actors just like any other production of the industry. It may be based on some actual incidents or a combination of them. However, it is no where near what actually happens out in the real world. I have been going to storage auctions for over 25 years and in different parts of the country. A lot of work, lots of dump runs, lots of common household goods, and yes some treasures. I no longer go to storage auctions because of people being influenced in their bidding by the shows. One new bidder bid $300 for a unit and then was actually crying after they went through the unit and found it was all dump run. Other units have gone for more than what you could go to the store for and buy new, My friends who have been doing this for some time have also experienced the same and are for the most part no longer going to auctions. I am not going to throw my money away just to get an 'overpriced' unit.

American Pickers visited a site near where I live - the woman who lives there sent them photos of her grounds, antiques, etc. The production crew was interested and it took like 9 months to arrange their visit. They had made some selections from the photos she sent them, but they did walk around and look at stuff. The shorter guy has asthma or something really bad, so no, they don't drive around in that cool little van- there is a whole parade of motor homes and trucks and cars of course. They bought a few things, and then the crew came back a month later and filmed some more "set shots" to fill in the episode. So, kinda fake, kinda real.

It's obvious the prices are inflated and items are overvalued. The concept that people are out there spending their hard earned money with a false hope is a blatant lie. These people are not intelligent and lack common sense, they will always be misled by predators and invest in ponzi schemes. These types of individuals have existed from the very beginning of civilization and the formation of societies. History reveals religion has actually been the biggest scheme of all amongst these types of individuals. So, this show has no impact on how these people live their lives and make their choices, they do.

On the last show Jarrod had a container of mints, label very obvious, and popped 1 in his mouth. The next commercial said the episode was sponsored by the SAME MINT COMPANY. Hmmmm..

I doesn't matter to me that the show is a fake. I watch it because I like the participants on it. Each one is different, but they're all likeable, there's almost no blatant sex, and little crude language. It surely beats most of what is being offered on tv today.

If you have information that a crime and/or a conspiracy to commit a crime has been committed, have you filed a complaint with law enforcement? If so, what is the status of that issue?

You wrote a lot, but you didn't say a lot. You really don't understand the Sherman Act based on how you are trying to apply it in this case. The Sherman act would only be applicable if the auctioneer and one of the bidders were in colusion. It is not a violation of the Sherman Act for an individual bidder to driver the price up on their own in the absence of a conspiracy. It is also not a conspiracy for two or more distinct bidders to collaborate in their bidding practice.

In the end, you make a lot of accusations, but provide very little substantiation.

I enjoy the show well enough and don't care if it's real or fake.

I second-hand shop frequently, and wouldn't pay a fraction of the prices Hester, Darrel, Jarod and Brandi claim they're going to earn for most of this stuff. I'd enjoy the show more if they didn't post their earnings until they actually sold the stuff.

I'd love to see Barry go. He's a disaster and ruins more than he salvages. There's nothing endearing about a moron loading up the landfills with crap he broke. It's disgusting.

First, I'd have to say that Don Dotson is NOT the mastermind behind this show. Thom Beers is and he has done TONS of reality shows like "Deadliest Catch" and "Ice Road Truckers". Originally, the show was supposed to be about the Dotsons but they found out focusing on the bidders was more interesting.

Jarrod & Dave do have stores and you can find them on the internet with a very little effort.

But YES, there is some fake in this show. Like the scripted talking heads where they say stuff like "I was not gonna let that locker go".
Also, occasionally they have an auction winner "slip away" to check the locker. Most of the silly side stories are fake - and annoyingly unnecessary - especially all Barry's crazy antics. Brandi's presence at the auctions itself was the producers' idea. She never used to go.

The other major factor, as mentioned, is that these guys are getting paid handsomely for their participation. These auctions are not life and death anymore. They can get a little more aggressive with their bidding.

But remember, they do not show every single auction.

The extras thing is an interesting. The show would need their permission and you NEVER see anyone's face blurred.

FYI, Brandi wears padded bras.

It's clearly a bit contrived, but I started frequenting auctions when I was at university (I'm 71 now) and I made way more than I would have at a part time job, and had more fun, too. I still treasure hunt a bit. It's not something you can be successful at without a lot of research and a good eye, but the treasures are still there.

Well, first...yes it is fake. Still entertaining. Some of us like the idiot side stories and antics. Makes it fun. As for the "bid rigging", that has been going on for ever, going on right now on E-bay; there is no way at all to manage that; unless some one opens their mouth, that can fly under the radar. What I do find irritating is how this junk is priced by the twits themselves. Watch reruns just last night, and ol Jarrod priced a crapacular bicycle at 300.00. You run a "thrift store" which means the poor people will be shopping there you nitwit. Well, not his fault really. There will be a half wit who would buy it just so they can cay they bought it at a Storage Wars store. And then grin with their three or four teeth. Anyway, yes, show is fake, but who cares...At least Storage Wars Texas is real.
What? Really? That is...fake....DAMMIT!

Especially if those involved with the show decided that it affected their ratings.

This show is very blatantly fake. I loved the episode where Brandi's hubby "accidentally" fell and threw an empty box onto her. I slow motioned it just to see him grab the box from the top of a stack and chuck it at her. Check out the Youtube videos showing their slip ups. They pan to the unit during auction and you see everything arranged a certain way. Pan back and the film crew must have screwed up or the fake auction scene wasn't filmed in proper sequence letting the viewers catch it.

Take note that the auctioneer cuts the lock off of the unit THAT DAY in every episode no matter what storage yard they are at. I've attended these things with my Navy buddy and the companies cut the locks off after the account is delinquent then place THEIR OWN locks on that they simply unlock with their key. Why? So that the owner of the property can't show up and steal their stuff back. When the account is delinquent the stuff housed within the unit becomes the property of the storage facility. They either pay what is owed or buy it back at auction.

Some yards do an inventory and list the items found prior to auction once again putting their own lock on the unit when they are done with the inventory. Notice that all yards in Storage Wars do business exactly the same way. No inventory, cut off the previous owners lock, and commence to let the "big dogs" find tens of thousands of dollars worth of stuff.

No matter where the Auction Hunter guys find a gun they promptly unregistered gun to their old gun buddy and get paid. No FFL dealings shown, no comment on how they have to meet the state law, etc etc. Nice. Just drive around with the pistol that you found until you end up at your buddy's shop. Try that in real life.

It's all fake fake fake.

Yes, Storage Wars is fake. As a storage company manager for several years, there are laws in place to protect the original owner, the company and the contents. Each state has different rules as to how to dispose of these units. The object being to gain back the lost rent money by selling the contents. If the storage company gets the amount owed or more, they are happy. What the new owner does with the contents is of no concern to the storage company. Wouldn't you think it odd that with the tens of thousands of storage units in the greater Los Angels area, these same buyers would always be in the same place at the same time to try to outbid each other? The other things is that with my company (over 500 units), we could go for weeks or even several months without having a unit that required sale. Remember, the process from the first month the unit bill is not paid until it can legally be sold is about three months. This show is for your entertainment, just like 95% of TV programs and movies. Enjoy your week.

I wish you would have offered some proof. Even "running up the bids"is not illegal if you are doing it on your own. Plus you run the risk of actually winning a locker you pay too much vote. If it is all scripted it cant be fraud.

Okay, first, your Sherman Act statement about Bid Rigging states that a conspiracy between TWO OR MORE parties violates the Sherman Act. Then, you follow it up with an example of one man, Dave Hester, running up the bids. Either your description of the Sherman Act is incorrect, but your example fits, or your description of the Sherman Act is correct and your example doesn't fit. Personally, the latter seems more likely. So please, whether the show is fake or not, come up with some actual proof.

Hey guys, you guys do know that this is problably real? They show real stores, and other people. And if you want to say that no one bids against them, making it fake, then you are wrong. They cut out many of the auctions, mainly the ones that no one on the show wins or is just point blank uninteresting. plus, the same thing occurs when they don't find loot. The cut it out so that they don't loose viewers. They do add drama, and problably chose those people because they were dramatic, but still chose those people because they reoccure in different auctions. Oh yeah and, if it were staged, then why does everyone keeps loosing money? Why does Jarrod and Brandi's store loose so much?

Is Storage Wars completely fake? No.
Are parts of Storage Wars fake? Definitely.

Now to comment and explain, the reason why you never see anyone other than the main characters win auctions is because (and this has been answered before by the owner of Storage Wars) they skip the auctions other people win because the show is based on the main characters. Certain parts of the show are fake.. like when you see the main characters sitting down talking with the inside storage background and commenting on what's going on.. that's staged after the show. Also when the people say they're stopping to go check their locker between the auctions.. that's setup because you have nowhere near enough time to go through it. Some of the drama and other stuff is setup to make it more interesting. However, all the shops, stores, appraisers and bidders are all real.

All reality shows out there have some type of staged material, some more than others.

If this show is real why do they have writers? Why do the actors say the same stupid comments, like the new guy Jeff using Barry's "these might be my lucky item" or something stupid like that. These reality shows all have the same writers and the items are planted. I watched a filming of Pawn Stars and saw the same fake crap. I totally believe the writer if this article that it is Dan being a snake salesman. For those of you claiming this stupid show is real, I think you are Dan or one if the paid actors on the show. I am really glad Hester is gone, his acting sucked, he has no talent.

My feeling is that the cast are in the pawn shop business to one extent or another but that A&E definitely places certain interesting and high-value items in these lockers (with or without the cast's knowledge) to make the show more interesting. Given Hollywood's history you'd have to be naive not to believe this is possible. Also, how is it that only the cast seem to win lockers and not any of the other "buyers"? What no one else has money? Right. Even so it's an entertaining show and that's what I watch it for.


Ahole down the street 07/20/2012 19:05
I would assure you guys that the show is 90% real. I live on the same street as Jerrod and Brandi and you would not believe the shit that was brought home after an auction!
They have sense moved. but I can tell you that Ive seen some of the stuff that was purchased in their driveway..When the store was opened all the stuff went there.
I never talked to the guy don't really care for him. But hey, for a guy and gal that were down and almost out to get a gig like this I say good for them! You just might be a bit jealous!!!!!

the Sherman Antitrust Act is not broken because dave is not in cooperation with the auctioner or hence its fine shit head

I know a lot of people go to storage auctions and some do fairly well
For the most part a person is not going to leave 30 thousand dollars in jewelry at a storage room nor are they going to leave coins in them that are of any value
I believe some auctions are real but these on TV are as fake as they get and the the writer is correct they are violating the Sherman act every few minutes
I just saw an article that Dave Heister stated he was not coming back to the show unless they increased his pay.
No one is saying that the people like dave brandy darrell and the rest are fake I am sure they do real auctions ,just saying the auctions on tv are fake

joe 08/24/2012 00:03
the show is 100% fake (I know the auctioneer and the cast) they need to make it fake for people can watch. If you just show them winning trash people wont see. I been doing this for over 10 years my full time work. every unit that they show on tv is full of expensive stuff. In real life its not like that 40% you will do good 60% its all trash inside.

dan dotson hires people to raise the bids on people buying units for he can make a bigger payday (ive been asked to do it and have done it)

people thinking that the show is real go get a life and dont breed we dont want more stupid people in the world.

I have been an auction buyer for thirty years. Have I made money. Yes but the large scores that are shown on TV are a laugh. Most storeage lot owners investigate contents prior to auctions. I would offer one case in which a large freezer in an unpaid unit contained a human body. Relatives were continuing to cash the deceased partys S.S.and retirement checks and carelessly had missed unpaid notices. Police were notified by company owners prior to any sale. How would you like to have been the winner of that unit? My largest "score" was a 1958 Oldsmobile 98 convertible needing a full restoration which cost me $250.00 and I sold for $6000.00. It was such an ugly designed auto that most bidders ignored it.But I guess thats what keeps me out there looking but in reality seldom are there any large "finds" and hopeful buyers drawn out by the promise of big payoffs will be disapointed.

Fred 08/26/2012 18:25
Seeing that the Los Angeles area is the GANG CAPITAL of the world....I am shocked that these buyers - that have got the bring at least $10,000 cash (remember these are CASH ONLY auctions) to an auction have not been robbed or killed as yet by ANY gang member.....it's just amazing to me!!!!!!

The Flash 08/29/2012 11:30
I have no idea that the entire show is "fake", other than the obvious scenes that are contrived, BUT, I have been to numerous storage unit auctions in Florida and in nearly EVERY case, the storage company's manager or owner cherry-picked EVERY unit before they went up for auction. I never once saw anything of real value left behind - dinged up appliances and ratty furniture mostly. My one real question is, how did a seemingly intelligent and hot girl like Brandi settle for a dumbass loser like Jarrod?
