If you think you’ve seen it all, then this is the show for you. We all love Storage Hunters that’s been such a hit series in both the US and the UK, but we never cease to be shocked and amazed at the weird and wonderful things the hunters find behind closed doors.
They bid for the contents of containers and lock up storage sheds with no real idea of what’s inside. Trash or treasure – both are up for grabs, with some bizarre and surprising results.
- A naked man was found in a cage in one unit. After his release he ran off, still naked and seemingly as confused as the contestants themselves.
- An artificial bovine vagina was another find. This is a device designed to collect the semen from bulls for artificial insemination. Enough to make any bull horny.
- A cache of artwork was stashed in another unit. Lots of nudes – including a depiction of a raunchy Royal – Queen Victoria – engaged in a sex act.
- A single, padlocked coffin was revealed behind another roller door. After opening the coffin an empty suit and urn were found. The occupant had apparent left for greener pastures.
- A swarm of irate bees greeted the cameras after another door went up. Undeterred one contestant wanted to bid for the swarm and the accompanying bee-keeping equipment. The audience was abuzz after this one.
- Flamethrowers are not all that common but in one episode an example was located in a storage area. It produced bursts of dragon-like flames amid lots of hot action.
- One storage unit was stacked with model hands – little ones, big ones and even a fake one in a jar of liquid. New meaning to the old saying “give us a hand”.
- One storage unit was home to several albino pythons that cast serious doubt on the meaning of “prize”. Snakes alive to the winner.
- Whale poo in a jar was on offer from another storage unit. Surprisingly this can be worth a few dollars so not a bad win. It turned out to be a kriller.
- Another storage unit was home to an explosion that was triggered by the opening of the door. This show went off with a bang.
