The concept behind A&E's Storage Wars is that professional buyers bid on stale storage lockers after only getting to briefly look at them at an auction. There's an inherent risk every time the buyers begin to make their bids, as the units could be filled with worthless trash, or they could be hiding treasure.

Between Dan and Laura Dotson's quick auctioneering skills, the strong personalities of the bidders, and the intrigue of seeing the items get appraised, Storage Wars is an addictive watch.

It's no surprise then that the show was renewed for Season 15 in 2023 with some familiar faces, including Brandi Passante.

"Luckily I don't run into him that often," Brandi told Distractify in 2021. "It's been three years since we broke up and I would like to say that it was a little nicer than it is but it's not. It is a little tense but we seem to get through it."

Sadly, shortly after the interview, Jarrod was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence after getting into an altercation with Brand in May 2021, per TMZ.
