Storage Wars Texas
In “Storage Wars: Texas,” A&E’s top-rated non-fiction franchise heads to the Lone Star state to follow teams of bidders on their quest for auction gold.
New Texas-based characters include self-employed Lesa Lewis who is searching for items to sell at her brand new thrift store. Her pockets may not be deep, but she is a doggedly determined bidder when she sees a unit she wants. No job is too big for her right-hand man Jerry Simpson, who is always there to lend a hand and share a few laughs. Seasoned bidder Ricky Smith has been in the business since the age of 14, and says he is here to stay. He has spent the past 20 years teaching his nephew Bubba, who attends the auctions with him, the tricks of the trade. New York native Victor Rjesnjansky relocated to Texas, where he bids on storage auctions to fill the shelves of his store. The “fabulous” Moe Prigoff has been collecting modern furniture and antiques for over 30 years and is always on the lookout for new items to sell in his exclusive antique gallery. Rallying the crowd of high bidders is fast-talking auctioneer Walt Cade, who will do whatever it takes to move the units – and land one storage hunter a shot at hidden treasure.
