Barry last appeared on the show in 2015, but many don't know why he put his Storage Wars days behind him. So, what happened to Barry? Well, some fans have the craziest theories to explain his disappearance at the height of his popularity.
"Maybe Cool Barry Weiss is secretly a cat lady with no clear path or exit out of here," one viewer wrote on Twitter. Another added, "Barry from Storage Wars dies in Infinity War." Interesting...
Did Barry Weiss die?
No, Barry's death is not the reason he left the storage facility auction block. In fact, Barry actually left because he wanted to get back to his original job of "professional slacker." Sounds like typical Barry to us.
"I had a blast," he said in an interview about his time on Storage Wars. "It was fun, but I had enough and I kind of wanted to leave while it was still popular."
Where is Barry now?
In 2018, you can find Barry living his best life. With a net worth estimated at $10 million, the avid car collector is spotted by fans at auto events — and no, his care-free lifestyle was not funded by his storage locker finds.
"I was in the import-export business with fruits and vegetables… with my brother," he said of his first job. "It was a family company started by my grandfather."
Barry is also a grandfather to a 3-year-old named Jack, which is also keeping him busy. "He's getting so big now," he gushed. An in case you are wondering, he is single. Just don't expect him to tie the knot again anytime soon. "I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy," he said.
However, that's not stopping fans from reaching out on social media. "I want Barry from Storage Wars to be my sugar daddy," one female admirer tweeted. Another chimed in, adding, "Barry from Storage Wars is kind of hot."
Will Barry return to Storage Wars?
It's not likely. But he did reveal he would like to star in another type of reality show. "I’d like to do like a motorsport show really," he explained. "I’m really knowledgeable in all types. I’d really like to do that and travel the world, cause that’s what I like."
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed. In the meantime, watch Storage Wars Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. on A&E.
