‘Storage Wars’ Season 10: Big Changes for Mary Padian, Darrell, Jarrod and Brandi Too

Updated: Dan & Laura make first appearance of new season. Dave Hester displeased!

“Storage Wars” Season 10 kicked off with two new episodes and plenty has changed. Not only were the Dotsons not heading up the auctions, but the buyers had a lot of news to report about their personal lives and businesses. Emily Wears is the new auctioneer and there’s no fooling around when she’s in charge. Learn more about her.

Darrell Sheets is half his size, having lost that large belly he lugged around for years. He not only lost weight, but he lost Brandon too. We learned that he’s moved away and at least for now, isn’t attending auctions with his dad. Darrell also informed us that he got rid of the massive overhead he had tied up in his warehouse, and that he’s only dealing in “quality” items, donating much of what he buys or makes to charities of his choice.

Mary Padian is online now at She’s still showing up regularly to the auctions and has more cash at her disposal for bidding. Padian is still looking for collectibles or items she can rehab to put in that category, and she’s loving Darrell’s new look. What new look? He’s lost the weight equivalent of a young child. More on that in recap of the season premiere. 

Jarrod and Brandi: The biggest change we learned about related to them. Jarrod has hair! Yes, real hair on his head that is no longer shaved. He’s still sporting his famous branded t-shirts, but something else has changed. He’s looking for a “real” job. They sold all their trucks and closed their one remaining store (the Long Beach location closed a few years ago).

What were they doing in the second episode of the new season of “Storage Wars”? They were giving us a treat, apparently. Brandi took us on a ride to pick up Jarrod, who she found sitting on a park bench. What? Brandi said she was giving him a treat to lift his spirits. A depressed Jarrod is something we’ve never seen and he perked up a bit at the auction site in Moreno Valley.

They were not ready to be kidded or even questioned, because they snubbed Rene. Who knows if there’s bad blood between them.  He went over to ask about the store closure and the changes to their business, which brought silence. They refused to speak with him or even look at him.

Did they bid on anything? Yes, which according to Brandi was a way of getting their feet wet. There was a dog of a storage locker that they bid on, after Rene did Emily a favor and bid on at $25.00. No one else was interested and it went for $30.00 It netted them nothing in profit.

So, what do we take away from all this? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.

  1. Mike, I’m afraid I have to strongly disagree with your statement that it looks like “everybody has lost weight Brandon, I don’t believe anyone else lost weight.
    DAVE – NO
    RENE – NO
    IVY – NO
    MARY – NO
    DARRELL – YES (BUT all of the weight he lost apparently Jarrod found and then some)
    It didn’t appear as though the “powers that be” of Storage Wars (Thom Beers) either are no longer “salting” the lockers OR have seriously pulled back on the amount of “salting” they are doing. I’d much rather have it be 100% REAL, let everyone see just how bad most lockers are. If people are smart they’ll notice how bad things got for many of the cast when the show stopped producing the show for a few years! NOW THAT IS REALITY!

  2. So sad to see the changes.
    Dan and Laura have to stay.
    Jarrod and Brandi will be missed. They were very entertaining.
    Hester has to leave. He is so rude.
    I hate to see these people losing their businesses.
    Again, bring back Dan and Laura at least. Don’t ruin a good thing.
