Until recently, the salaries for the cast of Storage Wars had not been made public, however recent events have changed all that.
Before being booted off Storage Wars, Dave Hester told the press that he was paid $25,000 for each episode, with a guarantee of 26 episodes, a monthly stipend of $2,500, with an expense account of $124,500, and he received $25,000 as a signing bonus. That's about $800,000 per year!
It has also been revealed that Darrell Sheets used to secure roughly $30,000 per episode for the 30-minute series. We assume other cast members are paid a similar amount.
