10 thoughts on “Roy Dirnbeck Net Worth, Wiki, Age, Birthday【 Store 】Wife, Death?”

  1. I can’t believe all these positive reviews about Roy. He’s rude, crude, creepy and just plain nasty. His arrogance is so unbearable that it reminds me of a teenage boy. In fact he acts like he never grew up beyond 12 years old. His humor is so much like that. I just mute him, the thought that the producers found value in this egotistical behavior is not something that I would want to watch continuously. This show only ran a short time in my area. Thanks.

  2. Without Roys’s humor, the show is dead. His antics and playfulness make the show irresistible. Personally, I stopped watching all the “storage war” programs because they are not as interesting. I hope Roy continues to stay in the show.

  3. Hi,

    I am from South Africa, love the show. Roy is my favorite, just adore his cheeky sense of humor. Storage Wars Canada is airing on DSTV in SA at the moment.

    1. Hi Roy,

      James in Michigan. Love everyone on the show, but your my favorite. I love it when you guys have friends and family on. Your nephew was great! How about his mother next time! My roommate and I watch the show all the time. Bye!
