Default 'Storage Wars': Darrell Sheets Gets Biggest Payout In Show's History - $300,000

So given that the show is produced, is it real or fake?

'Storage Wars': Darrell Sheets Finds Frank Guttierez Art Collection Worth $300,000


It was the biggest payout in the history of "Storage Wars." Darrell Sheets invested $3,600 into a storage locker, which is a lot of money to take on a gamble. But the show clearly saved the best for last, as the season finale revealed a find no one could have anticipated.

The locker was filled with original art by Frank Guttierez. An expert estimated that the collection was worth approximately $300,000, flooring Darrell.

"How old on just a minute," he marveled. "$300,000? Bam!"

But is it too good to be true? In light of Dave Hester's lawsuit claiming that the show is faked, plenty of viewers expressed their skepticism on Twitter.

Darrell took to Twitter to reveal that the locker turned out to belong to Guttierez, and he'd been in contact with the author. Further, he suggested that the show has something in the works to debunk Hester's claims.

Wow, what a coincidence, that comes right on the heels of Dave "Yuuuuuuup" Hester calling the show fake.........

The show is scripted, if you think otherwise you're an idiot.

Why is it that all of the shows of this ilk have at least one or two weird looking people. Not just weird, but Hollywood like weird! I have never spent more than 10 seconds looking at any of them while channel surfing as they are so obviously fake and scripted as to be a joke!!! They are hardly entertainment....

Yeah, it's real.

They're all driving around in custom F250's, Caddies, Jag's etc. Yeah it's real.



There ain't that much money in that so called junk business. As if people would put valuable merchandise in rat infested storage lockers.

Something smells about this. If this is art is truly worth 300k some sleazeball lawyer would be fighting for this guy (or one of his relatives) to get the art back.

Next you're going to say that wrestling is fake. Oh great! Now I have nothing left to live for so I hope the Mayans were right and I only have to suffer for one more day.

My wife and I occasionally get sucked in. The other day we were watchign an Daryll gets in a Vette. Wife turns to me and says that he looks like the type of guy that would drive a Vette.
