Storage Wars is back for another season of heated auction battles and great finds! This season, we have the pleasure of welcoming Emily Wears, a 27-year-old auctioneer from Solon, Iowa. Emily has over ten years of auctions under her belt and is trying to grow her business by branching out to the west coast. She turns heads with her unique and immediately makes waves by dispensing with the usual “Going once! Going twice!” and selling the locker at her own pace. Rene (who was trying to jump in at the last moment) gets left out and misses the sale. Throughout the remainder of her nine appearances, Emily gives us a taste of what this auction world looks like through the eyes of an outsider. Dan and Laura Dotson take over for the second half of the season in their usual hyper-energetic style that viewers have gotten accustomed to since the inception of the show.
On the buying end, we bring back the regulars: Dave Hester returns, stirring things up from the start; Darrell Sheets shows off his recent weight loss and brings along an eager (if unprepared) pupil; while Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz, having sold their store, are forced to approach the business from a different angle. Rene Nezhoda hits the ground running, nailing a HUGE vintage video game locker and showing that he’s still a major player. Ivy Calhoun keeps grinding, buying locker after locker, working economies of scale to his advantage. Mary Padian is as feisty as ever, holding her own against the competition. Rounding out the bidders this season is longtime fan favorite Kenny Crossley, who made his first appearance alongside Barry Weiss back in season 2. This time, Kenny brings his unique hilarious twist as a bidder in his own right, catching the others off guard and putting on a show for the audience. Simply put: Kenny is magic!
