Mary Padian was born in Dallas, Texas on August 24th 1980, the daughter of John Gerard Padian, a businessman running a  scrap metal recycling plant and Teresa Ann Padian (nee Sassin and brother of Texas attorney Bady Sassin).  Her parents divorced in 2009.

Mary went to college at the University of Texas at Austin (UTA).  She graduated with a photojournalism degree in 2003 and got a job as an intern at D magazine.  She then went to work for Architectural Digest in New York city as an Assistant Editor.  She began creating videos which she called Mary’s Finds!, the same name as her store.  The videos consisted of finding reasonably priced items for the home.  Missing Texas, she decided to return to her home and family and within less than a year she opened her shop.  A frequent customer of hers is Moe Prigoff who would take things to her shop that he had purchased in an auction from abandoned storage units.  She was first seen with Moe in her shop on the first season of Storage Wars: Texas.

Moe soon took Mary under his wing and invited her to go to storage auctions with him.  Beginning on the second season of Storage Wars: Texas, Mary was a new cast member, joining among others Victor Rjesnjansky.  She and Moe buy units together and then turn them into items for either his store or hers.  She has a keen eye for the potential in any item and often impresses Moe with her creativity.  Although at times she can seem to be a bit flighty, she is a solid business woman who is taking her shop to the next level.

Mary Padian appeared as a recurring character for the 5th season of original Storage Wars (set mostly in California) and joined the cast there as a full member for the 6th season.  She remains full cast member on Storage Wars: Texas.

From Mary’s years working in the magazine industry, having a business, and getting paid for her reality television gig, we estimate Mary Padian net worth at $600,000 (GBP 379,698).

UPDATE JULY 2015: Rumor tells us that Mary is being well paid for her appearances on the original Storage Wars, some sources speculating that she is paid more than $ 450 000 per season.  We estimate Mary Padian’s net worth is now more than $ 1,4 million.

So how much is $600 thousand dollars really?

Well, if Mary’s into anything new, we think it may be a car.  Mary could afford to buy 48 Smart ForTwo Pure cars.  These tiny little cars are great for travel and get about 40 mpg on the highway, so gas would be cheap as well.  But then again, Mary may need something a bit bigger to haul all of her new finds away in.

For only around $20,000 Mary could buy a Ford Ranger, a perfect fit for living in Texas.  Actually, Mary’s made enough money to buy 30 of them.  She could haul her finds from all over Texas with that many trucks.

    • “I would say marry is about 25 with a wonderful personality and looking for a guy who will look after her and support her business and her all the way through the times that she struggles”

      Hmmm, she’s from Texas, son, everything is bigger in Texas, and your limp noodle beansprout penis isn’t up to the job…regardless of whether your EBT card can support her or not.

      Speaking as a bloke from the UK, Mary has wonderful personality, sexy voice and has artistic vision, I’d think life with her could never be boring…

  12. Hi Mary. Just a quick question for you. How did you get involved in buying storage lockers? Is there a “group” you have to join, as I am thinking of joining your possee up here in Canada keep up with your BABYGIRL shy additude.

  13. Hey Ray. Thanks for the compliment. First thing that you have to do is to move out of your mother’s basement. Cut the apron strings. You are a big boy, so get out in the real world.

    Of course there is more, but work on the first step.

    Well I doubt if you’ll ever see this…Don’t know how to find people yet…But I want to move to N.CA. and start up the largest most involved charity in the world…Global Charities in which first we would build a “Global Charities” Farm and Ranch in Northern CA. for abused and unwanted animals…It would also have several Tiny Homes on the property for Wounded Warriors to come stay anytime they wish. Having wheel-chair accessability all over the ranch….Including Barn and everywhere. Also to give to the childrens funds most of which are the ones in India with cleft palets and hair lips to be fixed….and so on and so on…NOt limiting to just one cause in other words…Oh…and going basically all over the world to dig clean water wells so Children would have clean water to drink no matter where they live…Call me if you want to talk about helping me…YOu just look and seem like you’d make a good partner…..TC Thomas Tobias I’m on facebook….I think….

  24. Why is a guy a faggot when he says he likes you Mary

  25. Hi Mary, I’m living up here in Alberta , Canada and I watch your show all the time. You’re my wife ‘s and my favorite star on the California Storage Wars . We don’t really see the Texas one as much only because we like the people on the California show better. They are more colorful and entertaining to us. You’re by far the best on both shows ,so we’re rooting for you,seems like some of the others on the show sometimes bully you a bit. Could it be the producers trying to tell them to do and say things to keep things lively for ratings. Whichever ,we’ll be continuing to tune in to see how you do .We wish you much luck and prosperity Mary. Hope you get filthy rich and enjoy life……Volker and Denise Linke from Mirror, Alberta 😊

  26. Would like to meet Miss Padian some time. I used to live in San Antonio, TX. She’s smart and attractive. I’d be suprised if she wasnkt married already. If she ever reads this, maybe she would say hi to me?

  27. Hi Volker.

    You sound so hot. How about some secret extra marital nookies? I be down for a ménage-a-trois too.

  28. Jeez guys leave her alone! Like any of you have a shot…

    Besides… I’m the one she’s going to fall in love with, so BACK the fuck off!

    Sup Mary 😉

  29. Jeez guys leave her alone! Like any of you have a shot…
    Besides… I’m the one she’s going to fall in love with, so BACK off! Watch this…

    Sup Mary 😉 Look me up in Vancouver…

  30. Mary Padian is a fucking idiot and a waste of genetic material. Majority of the characters on Storage Wars are completely unlikeable characters. Mary Padian has a fucking annoying voice and she is definitely not hot like what these other fucking assholes purport her to be.

  31. Mary Padian is one of the most annoying people on this planet. Her voice is fucking annoying. I don’t understand the love for Mary Padian however I will eliminate those people who have a differing stance to that of my own.
