from watching i can tell darrel is the only "fake" one cause he always finds something really good and his son has #poor acting skills, and jarrod and his gal always just break even and dave gets good $ cause he spends mad cake, and barry also hardly gets anything good 

i read about darrel on some a&e forum, he brings stuff from his home and plants it there when he wants tv time, and i started to notice him during the show and came to the conclusion that its true 

so i dont think its "fake" but whatever its good tv to me

I like the show but i feel like it gets a bit repetitive after a while. It is pretty cool to see what they find.

not so sure about storage wars, but i know for a fact that Auction HUnters is, the amount of Guns those two guys find is absurd, they'd have to turn those in if they found those.
not allowed to sell guns they got from a storage locker.

i looked it up a while ago and saw that everyone on the show gets like $100,000 per episode...stopped watching it then, because obviously they're not doing the work on the show for the money they make on the show.

Searching for buried treasure in the San Francisco Bay Area is hardly a straightforward endeavor.

The most obvious spot to look is Treasure Island, but that was only constructed by the federal government in the 1930s--making it an unlikely candidate to find anything more substantial than a few pairs of trendy sunglasses accidentally dropped by concertgoers during the island's yearly music festival.

(SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO)

Drake's Bay, the oft-rumored West Marin hideout of famed British pirate Sir Francis Drake, seems like a better bet; however, the most famous piece of treasure ever found there, a brass plaque supposedly left by Drake himself, was later proven to be an elaborate hoax.

That pretty much leaves aspiring Northern California treasure hunters with only one option: storage units in Contra Costa County sold by reality television stars.

As unlikely as it sounds, when a San Jose man looked through the contents of a storage locker he bought from Dan and Laura Dotson, the hosts of the A&E reality series "Storage Wars," he was shocked to discover a chest filled with 1,700 gold doubloons valued at $500,000.

It's common practice in California for the contents of a storage unit to be auctioned off when the renter misses three consecutive months of payment. The unit's previous lessee was an elderly woman who passed away earlier this year. Payments lapsed after her death and the storage facility turned to the Dotsons' company, American Auctioneers, to handle the sale of the items left inside.

The lucky treasure hunter has declined to identify himself publicly. "I called the buyer, and the buyer wanted nothing to do with [publicity]," Dan Dotson told the San Jose Mercury News. "I talked with the manager of the storage unit and asked, 'Can I mention you,' and he said no. So I would like to share, but it would absolutely cost me an account."

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
The buyer purchased the unit for about $1,100, Dotson said. He also bought another unit owned by the same person for about $600.
"He did a seasoned buyer move by buying both units," she said. "He also had a skilled eye to buy that unit with the Rubbermaid totes because whatever was inside was probably worth more than what's inside a cardboard box."


The box allegedly weighed so much it took three people to pick it up, which was a clue that something valuable was inside--or at least something heavy.

Unfortunately, American Auctioneers only videotapes a fraction of their up to 3,000 auction each year, and this one wasn't caught on tape.

The premiere of the second season of "Storage Wars" hits the air this Tuesday night at 10pm on A&E. Take a look at a preview below:

Yep to the FAKE and ENTERTAINMENT part of things. Same with Pawn Stars and American Pickers.. Vast majority of Americans think it's real though. I willingly and knowingly watch these late nights just as filer shows. They all have some comedic touches to them.

It's been proven countless times that all of them are staged in some fashion. Maybe the bidding part is real. Then the production team comes in and moves stuff in and around (someone screen capped just that. They aren't supposed to touch items yet boxes were added in between cuts?) maybe reactions are in fact REAL, but the items origins did not originate just 20 minutes ago from that actual storage facility. It's almost like that magic trickery you see on tv with chris angel.

I don't blame the actors per say, but I do place blame on the Auctioneers, who do go facility to facility to do this in real life. This is a $$$$ Boosting operation plain and simple, where they can fake some stuff, so the real life events appear better than they are... The o'l "bait and switch".

And the actors who are now "famous", they may take what they agreed on to their graves.

I also wouldn't put it past this Dotson character to have planted that news story about the "treasure" "someone" bought in one of "his" auctions.. See where I'm getting at here?

Any PR is good PR for these shows... I'm saddened but not surprised to hear that most of these shows are staged but the luck these guys have in finding loot & rare items is too consistent for it to be otherwise

Maybe I'm biased but I've only seen Auction Hunters myself; the bromance chemistry between Allan (sp?) & Ton is hilarious. Will try to catch Storage Wars.

And yep, the amount of firearms they find & sell on AH is ridiculous... The funniest part is the bargaining with their so-called "buyer"

The look on Allan's face is priceless when the buyer lowballs him by a large amount....
