Brandi and Jarrod, the dynamic duo from the hit reality TV series “Storage Wars,” have captured the hearts of viewers with their no-nonsense personalities and treasure-hunting adventures.
Their journey to becoming well-known buyers in the world of storage auctions is nothing short of remarkable.
While their relationship was often showcased on screen, it seems that their real-life story took an unexpected turn, leaving fans with questions about the status of their relationship.
In this unraveling mystery, we look into the intriguing details of Brandi and Jarrod’s journey and the curious circumstances surrounding them.
Who are Brandi and Jarrod?
From carpet cleaner to well-known treasure hunter, Brandi Passante’s no-nonsense personality has won over ever since she made her reality television debut on A&E’s “Storage Wars” in 2010, arguably becoming the most popular star on the show.
She called it a “weird fluke,” but it made it possible for her and her boyfriend, Jarrod Schulz, to go from being the owners of a mortgage company to being legitimate buyers.
In an attempt to strike a balance between their responsibilities from reality television and a happy family life, the two decided to accept.
The show tried to give us insight into their relationship as they were getting ready to tie the knot, focusing more on their more compassionate side than their careers.
Schulz said their banter was just the way they were. Fans would only see a glimpse of their real relationship because they were not the center of attention on “Storage Wars.”
Did Brandi and Jarrod break up?
Yes, Storage Wars star Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz are no longer together. On the season 13 premiere, viewers found out that Passante and Schulz, who starred in the 2014 spin-off, Brandi & Jarrod: Married to the Job, had split and were no longer a couple.
The reason behind Jarrod and Brandi’s breakup is still a mystery because it is not entirely clear what went wrong in their relationship. It is interesting to note that for a number of years following their breakup, they managed to conceal their personal relationship status.
Their zodiac signs were not compatible, with Brandi being a stubborn Taurus and Jarrod being a kindhearted Libra. Fans wonder if filming together so much was a factor in their split.
The episode featured the two meeting at an auction, where Schulz was referred to as “an idiot” by Passante for spending $400 on a storage unit that did not appear to be very profitable.
Passante had her friend Mary Padian bid on her behalf when she was interested in a different unit, but Schulz beat her price.
Passante claimed that she had actually broken up with Schulz following the completion of filming Storage Wars’ 12th season, which debuted in November 2018.
She brought up the breakup in passing during a Facebook Live interview with The Dad Diary last year.
When did Brandi and Jarrod marry?
Brandi and Jarrod were never legally married. Though the two had children with each other, shared a business together, and considered each other life partners, they never officially exchanged wedding vows.
As of right now, Brandi is a single reality star who looks after her kids. Even though both children are now teenagers, despite their requests, you will not find many mentions of them on the social media accounts of either parent.
Rather, the family has made the decision to conceal their children’s private matters. Her success brought her unwanted attention from the public, but it also meant she had more money to support her children.
Passante claimed that her ascent to fame was fraught with anxiety. She would get into awkward situations every time she went out in public as her fame from the show increased.
She disclosed that her kids do not like the spotlight either, so it is safe to assume that this trait was passed down to them.
Not much is known about her two children, with the exception of their fleeting appearances on “Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job” and “Storage Wars.”
