Barry Weiss never would have thought that he would be a celebrity when Thom Beers, the creator of the hit show ‘Storage Wars’ offered him to come up on the show. Barry who was a businessman and spent 25 years of his life in the export and import of fruits and vegetables, retired after he decided to live the life that he was left with.
A Capricorn, Barry wanted to travel around the complete world and did that but soon got bored and returned to his home. He and his brother had made quite lot money out of their company “Northern Produce” and so Barry had enough money to carry out his passion of collecting antique items.
The opportunity of coming on the show “Storage Wars” came his way and today he is the most popular character in it. Barry Weiss is a straight forward man and admits to the very fact that he is not in the show for making money out of it.
He is in it for fun and that is what he looks forward to that is having a good time. That is the reason he keeps most of the items that he wins on the show.
He keeps stuff that appears cool to him and the rest he either sells off or gives in charity. The man has net worth of $9 million and that makes it pretty clear that money is something that doesn’t bother him.
Barry Weiss loves annoying the other characters on the show with his eccentric ways and he laughs on the fact that this is what gives him immense pleasure and satisfaction. We often see Barry Weiss doing strange stuff on the show to find the contents inside the storage lockers.
At times he brings psychics to discern the value of the contents in the locker. Then sometimes we see him using goggles with night visions and once he used remote controlled helicopters and attached cameras to it.
Taking help of a pair of fake German attorneys too left the characters on the show with their eyes wide open. The list of his strange and surprising ways is long and interesting at the same time.
His skeletal padded gloves are his signature style and along with it his shirts and his accessories. Barry Weiss knows how to keep it simple and yet engrossing.
He knows people love him for the way he does things. He has a Facebook fan page after his name.
His attitude is remarkable and his wit is what makes him popular and famous. He is the face of the show today not just like that.
There are reasons behind why people love him and want to see him again and again driving his stylish cars on the auction on the show. Recently he was in the news for the new show that will kick off on A&E network named “WHAT ARE YOU WORTH?” In this show Barry Weiss is seen helping families who are cash- strapped and give them ways to make extra money.
This man truly has a long way to go.
