Storage Hunters was a reality television show that aired on truTV from 2011 to 2013. The show followed a group of treasure hunters who bid on abandoned storage units in the hopes of finding valuable items they could resell for profit. The cast included Sean Kelly, the auctioneer who oversaw the bidding process, his assistant Tarrell "T-Money" Wright, and a rotating cast of buyers who brought their own unique personalities and strategies to the game.

The show's format was simple but effective. Each episode featured several storage units up for bid, with the buyers given a chance to look inside and assess the contents before the bidding began. Once the auction started, tensions were high as the buyers bid against each other, trying to outmaneuver their competitors and secure the unit for themselves. The winner of each auction had the most money left over after bidding, and could either keep what they found inside the storage unit or sell it at a profit.

One of the most memorable aspects of Storage Hunters was the cast of characters who participated in the auctions. There was Brandon Bernier and his wife Lori, who ran a pawn shop and had a knack for finding hidden treasures inside the units. There was Jesse McClure, a young hustler who was always looking for an angle to get ahead. And there was the father-son duo of Clinton "Ton" Jones and Allen Haff, who often worked together but occasionally found themselves in competition with each other.

Sean Kelly, the show's auctioneer, was a key part of the show's success. He had a booming voice and an impressive array of catchphrases and one-liners that made him stand out from other reality show hosts. He also had a no-nonsense attitude that made it clear he was in charge of the proceedings. His assistant, T-Money, added some comic relief to the show, often making wisecracks and ribbing the buyers.

Another aspect of the show that made it unique was the tension and drama that came from the bidding process. The buyers constantly tried to outmaneuver each other, employing tactics like bidding just $1 more than their competitors or waiting until the last second to make a bid. There were also frequent moments of tension as the buyers discovered unexpected items inside the storage units, such as valuable artwork or rare collectibles.

Overall, Storage Hunters was a fun and entertaining show that appealed to fans of reality TV and treasure hunting alike. It had a unique format that set it apart from other shows in the genre, and a talented cast of characters who kept viewers engaged with their antics and strategies. While the show only aired for a few seasons, it left a lasting impression on those who watched it and remains a beloved cult classic to this day.

Storage Hunters is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (89 episodes). The series first aired on June 21, 2011.
