Everything about Brandi Passante
Early Life & Career
Brandi Leigh Passante was born in the year 1980 in Harris County, Texas. There is very little information available in the public domain about her parents and education. Even Brandi has not disclosed about her personal life before she was looking for a storage unit except that she wanted to become a professional cook.
Brandi Passante started her career as a carpet cleaner in 1999.
Brandi and Jarrod were shown as the hunters with very minimal financial resources in the initial days. However, Brandi had a very strong personality as she has a “take no prisoners” attitude.
She said, “I have to turn around my scores swiftly because they pay for the next auction.I won’t be able to bid again unless I flip the products.”
As the show gained prominence, Brandi and Schulz were able to transform into harder hitters.
Social Media presence
The couple shares two children together, Cameron and Payton. Brandi first met Jarrod Schulz in 1999 through a mutual friend when she was associated with a carpet cleaning firm.
Recently in an interview given by Brandi Passante to The Dad Diary via Facebook, she disclosed that she and Jarrod Schulz separated two years ago. She further added that just before the “Storage Wars” season 12 was premiered in November 2018 she ended her relationship with Schulz.
Passante said, “I did a lot of it on my own anyway, but it’s the scary dad voice in the background that we’re missing. I have them all the time, 24/7 they’re here with me, so I have to navigate that”.
The business partners cum couple was not prepared to shell out long working hours and tedious work that came along with their popularity. Brandi had to transform herself from being a full-time mother and part-time job to working more than 60 hours a week.
The reality star had to do many things like going on long drives to shoot locations and getting up early in the morning at 4 a.m.
Brandi and Jarrod realized that their personal and professional lives are in conflict with each other and they experienced the downside of being together every moment.
In 2013 Brandi sued Hunter Moore, the owner of an adult website, for uploading a video that reportedly showed her nude. Brandi has claimed $2.5 million in damages, however, she got a very meager amount against her claim. The video was later taken down, and the website was also shut down.
