The Storage Warriors hold a special place in the hearts of their fans, but without a little competition, the bidding battles wouldn't be half as fun! It's time to get to know the new players of Storage Wars.
Nabila Haniss has been in the storage business for over 20 years. She seems to have a knack for buying celebrity-owned lockers, like Paris Hilton's in 2007 and Tila Tequila's in 2013, but she can make a profit on standard household items as well.
In a business full of men, Nabila is a woman who defends her turf, gets the lockers she wants, and commands respect from the other buyers.
While she refuses to get caught up in ego-driven bidding wars, she's more than willing to drop a locker on someone if they deserve it.
The self-proclaimed "Kings of Swag," Mark and Matt Harris know what's what and which is which when it comes to Hollywood memorabilia. These identical twins have a company called WOW! Creations, which specializes in celebrity gift bags.
Hungry for a taste of real Hollywood treasure, the Harris brothers are on a mission to uncover a true artifact from Hollywood's golden years. Armed with a matching wardrobe and bickering banter, these twins are ready to try their gloved hands at auction buying.
However, the brothers are new to the bidding game, and are sometimes confused by the rules of storage auctions. Surely the veteran buyers wouldn't dream of taking advantage of them. Right?
Herb and Mike are brothers-in-law and brothers-in-storage, having unofficially taken the title of the "Tank Top Twins."
Herb and Mike's future plans include opening a thrift store, but first they will have to deal with the challenges of breaking into the storage auction game.
While other buyers may have more knowledge or deeper pockets, Herb and Mike truly believe that their lucky numbers will point them at the best lockers.
Widely known as the King of Palmdale, Ivy Calvin is a no-nonsense buyer who means business. His store, Grandma's Attic, has a quick turnover thanks to Ivy's constant influx of merchandise and his dedicated customers.
Although L.A. is new territory for Ivy, he's headstrong and self-assured, and his confidence shows in his bidding.
Thanks to his 14 years of buying experience, Ivy is rarely tripped up by other buyers' shenanigans.
Rene Nezhoda and his wife Casey hail from San Diego, where they have a 7,000 square foot shop called Bargain Hunters Thrift Store.
One of the first things people notice about Rene is his German-by-way-of-Las Vegas accent, and winning smile. Emphasis on "winning."
With a big bankroll and an extensive knowledge of secondhand sales, Rene is a veteran buyer. Casey often accompanies Rene to auctions, and is very supportive of his decisions... until he says that she can't keep the jewelry they find.
Johan Graham is a second-generation auctioneer who learned the craft from her father, Earl.
When Johan became the California auctioneering champion in 2000, she was the youngest champion ever named, and also the only female.
From cattle auctions to estate sales, Johan and Earl have over 55 years of auctioneering experience combined, but they're finding that storage auctions are a whole new animal!
Now that you know more about the new players of Storage Wars, keep your eyes open! You never know when they might pop up and make things tougher (and more fun!) for the Storage Warriors.
