Barry Weiss is an American reality television star and professional storage-treasure hunter who has a with a net worth of $9 million. Not to be confused with the music producer of the same name, Barry Weiss has become the eccentric super star of A&E's smash hit Storage Wars. On the show, Barry is known as "The Collector". He has a vast collection of valuable antiques. His car collection is equally impressive considering Barry is able to show up to each auction in a new vehicle. His most famous car is his 1947 Custom Cowboy Cadillac which can be seen frequently on the show. Barry has been in the antiques business since childhood and shows very little sign of slowing down now that he's in his 60s. On Storage Wars, Weiss is characterized by his witty and caustic one liners, and his "anything goes" approach to storage auctions. For instance, Barry has been known to bring psychics to storage auctions to help him discern the value of a unit's contents. He has also used night vision goggles, a remote controlled helicopter and even a little person on stilts to help get an edge in the bidding. Barry has an impressive breadth of knowledge that includes antiques from all eras, a byproduct of his long years in the field of antiques and storage auctions. Prior to becoming a reality super star, Barry Weiss and his brother made a fortune in the produce business. He spent 25 years building a wholesale produce business. The business eventually gave Barry enough money to retire and spend several years traveling the world. Once he got sick of traveling to exotic locales, Barry returned home and started using multi-million dollar net worth to indulge his passion for antiques and collectibles. Barry admits that he does not make as much money as the other characters on the show because he ends up keeping most of the items he wins. On March 25, 2012 it was announced that Barry Weiss will be getting his own A&E spin off show called "What Are You Worth?". Casting has just begun for "What Are You Worth" which will feature Barry helping cash strapped families make extra money. Further details on the show have not been released yet but insiders expect it to be similar to ABC's Extreme Makeover series which helps families by providing them with entire new homes.

Barry Weiss (born February 11, 1959 in New York, New York) is an American music executive. He is the current Chairman & CEO of The Island Def Jam Music Group and Universal Republic. He served as chairman and CEO of RCA/Jive Label Group from 2008 to 2011 and was also the CEO of its constituent Jive Records from 1991 to 2011. Both companies were under the purview of Sony Music Entertainment. Weiss is best known as an important force in the careers of Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, among numerous others. Weiss' father, Hy Weiss, was a music entrepreneur from the first generation of rock'n'roll, owning and operating Old Town Records from 1953 until 1996.
In 1981, Clive Calder of Zomba started his first U.S. record label Jive Records, which released British dance and pop music such as Q-Feel, A Flock of Seagulls and Tight Fit. In 1982, Calder was introduced to a young Barry Weiss, fresh out of college at Cornell University. For his job interview with Zomba, Weiss took Calder out to hip-hop and black clubs all over New York City, demonstrating his keen awareness of the scene at the time. Calder was immediately impressed and hired him to scan sales data from all over the country searching for unknown acts with significant sales. Together, Weiss and Calder turned Jive into a veritable hip hop and rap empire throughout the eighties, beginning with Whodini.
Weiss continued working for Jive in various capacities helping establish such blockbuster pop acts as Britney Spears, Usher, Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake, 'N Sync and T-Pain. When Calder sought to retire from the business and sold Zomba to Bertelsmann, Weiss was appointed head of the resultant Zomba Label Group in 2004. In 2008, Weiss replaced music executive Clive Davis as Chairman of BMG Label Group, which was renamed RCA/Jive Label Group in early 2009. Weiss left the company in March 2011.
