Name: Rene Nezhoda
Born: April 5th 1977
Occupation: Reality TV star, author, business owner.
Rene Nezhoda first appeared on the A&E television show Storage Wars as a recurring character during the 4th season and joined as a regular cast member for the 5th season. Though his official A&E profile claims that he “hails from the San Diego area” viewers quickly started commenting on his German accent – not particularly typical for the San Diego area. Rene was in fact born in Austria and grew up in Frankfurt, Germany. Rene Nezhoda moved to the US when his father, the (not so very well-known) actor Gunter Nezhoda, emmigrated from Germany in 1990.
On the show Rene regularly appears together with his wife Casey Nezhoda, particularly during the last half of each episode when the cast members are attempting to establish the value of items they have found. Together they run the 7,200 square feet Bargain Hunters Thrift Store LLC at the Carriage Center West Shopping Center in Poway, California.
Rene has great deal of knowledge of the value of second hand items, having been in the thrift store business almost his entire life. He has published a price guide on Limited Edition Casino Chips.
Some of the more famous starts of Storage Wars are paid more than $ 800,000 per season by A&E. Rene Nezhoda is getting less than that, though, having joined the show at a time when the production company was looking to replace some of the old stars with new, cheaper cast members. According to rumours, Rene and Casy Nezhoda are currently paid $ 187,000 per season of the show.
We estimate Rene Nezhoda’s net worth at $ 1.9 million, though a substantial part of that is tied up in his business.
So how much is $ 1,900,000 dollars really?
$ 1.9 million will buy you nearly 3,000 iPhone 6 and about 8,000 tickets from San Diego to Miami, just in case Rene feels like going away for a while. It will buy 63,000 dozen eggs, nearly 40,000 Big Macs and 2,375,000 pounds of potato.
