I don't know where they dug up this Chad guy.  But I can't believe they decided to keep him instead of Brando. 

Perhaps Chad works extremely cheap(?)

And agree with others -- this used to be one of my "must see" shows.  Now I barely remember when it is on.

I haven't seen the episodes with Darrel's new protege but I'm sure he's somebody that works for Bugs Bunny (aka Darrel...his teeth remind me of Bugs Bunny. But I think Bugs is cute so don't hate me). Or he could be someone Darrel's fiance knows. Darrel and the gf talked about how they first met at Starbuck's discussing ideas for a new reality show. Good luck with that Darrel....you are so not interesting enough to have your own show.

Ok this new girl doing the auctions now is on my list of wishing she was gone. The second she opened her mouth and acted stupid about California having mountains and snow...I was done there. Just reminded me of the stupid crap spewed from Laura and Dan at times. 

Is it just me or does it seem like they are going to so called "experts" on items that are more iffy than actual "experts" compared to the past seasons?

Who knows if the so called "experts" are really considered professional experts. I doubt the shows producers have the money it would cost to pay real bona fide experts to evaluate the "finds". This show is so fake. Barry and his buddy were the only real thing about this show.

I've always felt that the "experts" were only expert because they provided the unusual item that producers used to seed the locker.

Which could be the case. It just seems like as the seasons have gone on its some random in a store that you have some random employee telling them about the item they found and the worth. All of which is so far off that it makes it hard to believe what is said. As it is I have always questioned them on what they "assumed" the storage units were worth and if they sold anything for what they claimed they would. I'm wondering how much longer this show has at this point. Between Jarrod and Brandi losing their store and from what I understand Darrell doesn't have anything either (unless still selling at swap meets)...it seems pointless for them to even be on the show at this point "buying" storage units.

I thought Darrel was selling his items online through his website. I wonder how much he made from that locker he purchased with the paintings/artwork he claimed was appraised in the millions.

I don't think Darrel ever had a store, IIRC when the show started he was making his money selling at swap meets and the like and then as the show got popular he moved to selling stuff on-line.  I think he's probably doing better than Hester no matter what.  Hester can bluff all he wants on the show but it sounds like he lost his store and even he didn't go bankrupt he came close.

Speaking of Hester, he was always a jerk, but it's obvious the producers have told him to ramp up the evilness.  I keep expecting him to start cackling and ride off on a broomstick.

The only thing I like about Hestor, is his obvious love for his 2 little Pug dogs.

Darrell used to have big warehouse here and its gone. It was gone at some point over the last year or 2. My husband said he saw something about Darrell moving back down towards San Diego. He used to have guys selling his stuff at the swap meet near here. BTW, I check and his website he would sell from is not up. 

I am wondering how Ivy is even in business at this point too. If you look at reviews of his place the hours are all over the place and some say he isn't open much at all. The pics of it on yelp show he has signs up all over the store too. 

Rene sells online and at a physical store. At this point he seems to be the only one doing ok.

Is this show being renewed for another season? I see reruns constantly on the FYI channel and A&E but no promos for a new season. I won't be sad if it's cancelled but would still watch another season.

They're still on the current season, season 10, which has 23 episodes, with only 2 episodes remaining.  Episode 22 airs on July 19th, and episode 23 (the final episode of the current season) airs on July 26th.

I don't think there's been an announcement of whether the show will be renewed for an 11th season in 2018, but I could be wrong about that.

We were just watching the reruns of this show. I spaced on the fact on who the kite guy was that Ivy went to. That was my younger son's old baseball coach from when he was in Little League. LMAO He has a kite shop on the pier here.

Anyone that watched it tonight...did you catch the beginning with Brandi and Jarrod talking about how well their store was doing? All I could think of was what store?

I didn't catch that part but I kept wondering why they were buying lockers if they don't have a store.  Are they doing swap meets or selling online or something?  IF they've reopened a store that would make more sense.

I can't find anything for them having a store. I looked after I caught. I don't think they are selling at swap meets either. I would think they would gladly splash it all over their SM accts if they had a new store and where it was or if they even sold at swap meets. My husband said maybe not if they didn't want viewers just showing up but I disagree. They seem to like attention. I am guessing at this point unless most viewers know that these 2 don't have their stores at all they don't question things with the show. I figured they are doing the show still as it might be their only income coming in at this point. I can't see his clothing line selling to many. That is the only thing I see linked to his acct. The old SM acct for their store hasn't been used in a long time and the line for the store is dead. Her SM doesn't seem to link to anything. 

I didn't catch it before but who is Chad to Darrell? There is something about that guy that was pretty creepy like too I thought.

I still watch this show. I don't know why. I still adore Barry and can't stand Daryl Sheets and his dumb ass son. I've even gotten to the point of preferring Hestor over Gross Daryl. 

I know alot of people can't stand Mary. I like her. She doesnt come into the auctions with alot of money to spend and she seems realistic about how much money she can get for her items.

Mary has grown on me.  I still can't stand her voice or her laugh or her "silly little me, giggle, giggle" attitude especially when she first came on, but overall I think she's a nice person and her persona has improved over the years.  I like when she and Brandy team up with the new auctioneer - three nice gals :).

I read somewhere (I think the wiki article on Storage Wars) that he is Darryl's nephew.  I hope for his sake that his stupidity is part of the shctick the producers want from him because otherwise hoo boy!

I don't think I've seen this Chad guy yet but if he's related to Daryl (Daryl's face reminds me of a groudhog ) and looks as much of a slob as Daryls son...then i know I'm not going to like him. Maybe Chad is related to Daryl through Daryls new wife?

I tried to look it up and found nothing but we figured he was another one of his kids or nephew like you said. I hope that is an act too. 

I'm not into these 2 Vegas girls. They got on my last nerve right away. The whole "OMG this is vintage" when its far from vintage just bugs me. From what I saw when looking up who they were, they have been trying to get on tv for awhile now.

The new ones they have been bringing in are just not cutting it. There is just stuff about them that is not likable at all. At least for me. It is starting to come off like the show is desperate for anyone to step in place of some of the ones that aren't on anymore or to often.

I agree with you.  From what I've read I think the new ones are being brought in not so much for fresh and new but because they can pay them less than the regulars.  It's really too bad because if the show isn't making enough money to pay the "stars" then maybe it's time to call it a day.

God I know Dave is full of crap but I saw an old episode tonight where he finds some lace tablecloths and completely makes up the idea that they came from a town in Italy that specializes in lacemaking and puts a value of a $1000 on them.  I can't believe no one ever challenges him on the value he puts of things, just accepts it.  Even inflating the price of the questiionable lace he still only makes $150 on the locker but he acts like he scored big.  What a turkey.

Dave & Daryl always OVER guesstimate what their locker items are worth. You can only get whatever price someone is willing to pay. Hester probably sold those $1000.00 "Italian lace" tablecloths for $10.00. 

I hate Daryl. He's gross and arrogant and fugly. And I don't think he's putting on an act for the show either.

Just watched some fairly recent (2017?) episodes. Apparently filmed after Daryl's bariatric (?)surgery. Yep! He lost weight and now he's got loose skin hanging on his neck. All that money he makes and he can't afford skin tightening after losing (allegedly) 100+ pounds? 

I miss Barry!
