Barry Weiss

Debuting in December 2010, "Storage Wars" was an immediate hit and quickly became the most watched series on A&E, thanks to the quirky personalities of the four buyers. Weiss stood out from the rest due to his eccentric style, cheesy puns, offbeat charm and the numerous wacky cars he owned, including a chopped Cadillac with bull horns as a hood ornament. While the other buyers appeared to engage in a genuine rivalry that sometimes bordered on outright dislike - particularly in the case of Sheets and Hester - Weiss enjoyed a chummy camaraderie with the entire cast. He was also known for pulling pranks through any means possible - a psychic, night vision goggles, even a little person on stilts - to ascertain a locker's mysterious contents. Occasionally, he used high-profile friends to help judge the value of certain items, as he did with drummer Stuart Copeland from The Police, who not only priced a used drum set, but also increased the value by autographic each piece. Meanwhile, Weiss enjoyed a degree of celebrity, thanks to a rabid fan base that started a Barry Weiss Fan Club on Facebook, where female fans proposed marriage on a daily basis. Having been married and divorced with two kids already, Weiss had no plans to accept any proposals.By Shawn Dwyer
