“Storage Wars” wouldn’t be the well-liked reality series that it is today without Brandi Passant’s charm and sharp wit. Brandi and the rest of the cast scout out abandoned storage facilities in quest of the metaphorical (and occasionally literal) treasures in the program, which is partly based on the age-old concept of a treasure hunt.
The show’s own hidden jewels were thrift store owners Brandi and her former boyfriend Jarrod Schulz; their clever banter and amusing antics quickly made them favorites among viewers.
Brandi is one of the “Storage Wars” contestants who are loudest and most brazen when it comes to uncovering hidden treasure, but her private life is far more private and, in some ways, devastating.
The reality TV star has previously acknowledged that both her adult life and upbringing have been “tumultuous,” complete with job challenges, a rough breakup, and an assault claim against her ex-fiancé Jarrod. Join us as we try to understand the turbulent events in her life and what has kept her going.
Jarrod Schulz: Who Is He?
Entrepreneur and reality television star Jarrod Schulz was born on October 15, 1977, in California. He used to disassemble toy vehicles as a kid to learn how the parts operated.
Jarrod developed an interest in safes, lock boxes, and later storage auctions throughout his preteen years. He was charged numerous times as a result, including after serving 16 months in prison for carrying drugs and operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Brandi Passante: Who Is She?
American television personality Brandi Passante was born in Harris County, Texas, on May 16, 1980. She is well-known for appearing on Storage Wars with her husband, Jarrod Schulz. She co-owns a firm with her spouse and is also a businesswoman.
In 1999, Brandi worked as a carpet cleaner for the first time. She met her husband, Jarrod Schulz, during this time, and they went on to open their first business, the “Now and Then” store in Orange, California. Brandi and Jarrod were no longer together, though.
Are Brandi Passante And Jarrod Schulz Still Dating?
Although it sounds like there wasn’t a dramatic conclusion, it was evident on the premiere that there is some tension between the two. When Schulz spent $400 on storage space, Passante called him “An Idiot,” and in a different scene, Schulz outbids Passante and says, “You know, if Brandi bids on it, I’ll definitely bid.”
Brandi Passante said on The Dad Diary (via Facebook) that she ended the relationship before the November 2018 start of Season 12 of “Storage Wars.” Passante said that she was accustomed to being by herself with her children when she was asked what it’s like to be a single mother. “Even if I accomplished a lot of it on my own, we are missing the ominous voice of the dad in the distance. I must handle their constant presence because they are here with me at all times.”
Was Jarrod Schulz Arrested?
Jarrod was arrested after supposedly fighting with Brandi in a Californian nightclub. According to TMZ, Brandi asked Jarrod to leave and they got into a furious confrontation when he refused.
Jarrod allegedly shoved Brandi twice while yelling at the young woman and her friends, according to the news source. He escaped the bar before the police came, but they later apparently caught up with him.
Since that time, Jarrod has been charged with misdemeanor battery, which includes domestic abuse.
Jarrod Schulz Started Dating Someone Else?
On June 11, 2020, she uploaded a picture of herself and an unidentified male to Instagram. Since then, she hasn’t provided any more updates.
Jarrod, meantime, has just begun dating Rochel Beckman. They even went on a trip to the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa in Lake Arrowhead, California, as he disclosed on Instagram in June 2021, which would be a sign that things are about to get serious.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t provided any additional information regarding the current state of their relationship since then.
