Auction Hunters is an American reality television series that premiered on November 9, 2010, on Spike.

In June 2011, Spike announced that it had ordered a third season of 26 episodes.[1] In August 2012, Spike announced that it had ordered a fourth season of 26 episodes.[2] The fourth season premiered on January 30, 2013.[3]

On April 11, 2014, Spike ordered a 20-episode fifth season that will premiere in late 2014.[4] Season 5 encompasses the duo as they expand their business past storage unit auctions.[4] The fifth season renewal gives Auction Hunters the title of longest-running nonscripted show on Spike.[4]

Summary[edit]

The show follows Allen Haff, and Clinton "Ton" Jones, who have experience in a variety of fields including guns and mystery safes, as they participate in storage unit auctions throughout Southern California and occasionally other locations around the United States. Each episode leads viewers through the pair's activities of bidding on and winning abandoned storage units, appraising the items found within, and selling the most lucrative and interesting pieces to experts or collectors. The auction and contents of the storage units are staged by the show's producers.

Each episode begins with a text disclaimer stating that Haff and Jones purchase hundreds of units each year, and that only their rarest and most valuable finds are presented on the show. They claim that most of their units end up making little to no money, and that in fact they follow the 80%/20% rule in that they make 80% of their profit from 20% of the units they buy.
