Storage Wars Season 2 Summary

July 25, 2016
Cast of season two.

A&E`s reality series, Storage Wars, proved to be a bonafide hit for the network. First season aired nineteen episodes. This second season aired thirty-three episodes! Lots of mayhem, Yuuups, and hilarity. Oh, and the winning of storage auction units too, of course. All auctions held in Southern California.

Second season`s cast members Dave, Darrell, Brandon (not pictured in promo photo), Jarrod, Brandi, and Barry, returned to fill their roles as professional buyers. Well, everyone except for Barry.

He quickly became the fan favorite of the show. Known more for his antics and unorthodox method of sorting a locker - just toss all the items out into the hallway and hopefully, he`d find a treasure. We`re not entirely sure who cleaned up the aftermath-tossed-mess; but we`re pretty sure it was not Barry. Also, Dan and Laura Dotson returned as the show`s auctioneers.

New buyers entered the fold in a recurring role.

Mark Balelo.

Mark Balelo owned a liquidation, wholesale & distribution company, and an auction house. Known for his flashy sense of fashion and flashing large sums of cash at auction.

Nabila Haniss.

Nabila Haniss best known for her purchase of heiress Paris Hilton`s defaulted locker, which contents were sold for millions.

Now with a full year of what to expect from the structure of the series; buyers were more than happy to bid up and drop lockers on each other. Bid wars, face-offs, and good old fashion treasure hunts, as buyers sifted through contents in a storage auction unit. All auctions held in Southern California.

Here`s the tally of how much they spent per episode.
