Nowadays there is a reality show for everything including antiques. Storage Wars is different from the others as cast members bid on a storage unit which has been left unused - the owners have passed away or can't pay for the unit. The interesting part is the cast member who bids on the storage doesn't know all the items which are hidden in boxes. Afterward, they value the items and sell the antiques in their stores.
Reality stars make a lot of money even stars who are in the antique business. Here are the ten cast members' net worth.
