Thom Beers has produced numerous reality shows over the years. In addition to Storage Wars, he’s also worked on Deadliest Catch, Swords: Life on the Line, and Ice Road Truckers. Fun fact: He was also a supervising producer on Captain Planet and the Planeteers back in the ’90s.
Now if you’re thinking, “Hey, wait a minute; this was supposed to be about the richest cast member,” we haven’t forgotten about that. Beers was also the narrator throughout Storage Wars, so that technically makes him part of the cast. Based on the latest data from Celebrity Net Worth, Beers is worth an estimated $25 million. That’s over double of what the next richest cast member, Barry Weiss, has in the bank, which is a respectable $10 million.
It just goes to show you can make a fair amount of money by digging around in abandoned storage units to see what you can resell. However, if you want to make even more money, then you might want to consider making a reality TV show about people digging around in abandoned storage units.
