Jesse McClure shot to fame as the major breakout star from addictive US reality show Storage Hunters, which airs on UKTV’s hit Dave channel on this side of the pond.
Dave is the UK’s most watched non-public service broadcasting channel and Storage Hunters is the jewel in its crown. Taking the UK by storm, it’s been Dave’s highest rating show for the past two years, with episodes regularly averaging more than a million viewers and beating Channel 4 and ITV2.
Jesse has been described as Storage Hunters’ answer to Bam Margera or Seth Rogen – a larger than life personality whose laid back demeanour (not to mention his trademark sideburns and shades) masks an encyclopaedic knowledge of even the most obscure goods’ resale value.
Growing up in Canyon County, California, he was fascinated by the resale trade from an early age and worked for his family’s antique mall.
Jesse’s cheeky Californian charisma made him a runaway hit with viewers, who love to see him play dirty and rub fellow Storage Hunters up the wrong way.
Jesse had a busy start to 2016 filming his new TV show British Treasure, American Gold. The show sees him travelling the length and breadth of the UK in search of antiques and collectibles to send back to his family’s antiques mall in Los Angeles.
From bone china vases to Elton John’s gold plated sink, vintage one armed bandits to armoured military vehicles,
the show focuses on the unique and unexpected side of British history.
This entertaining show is scheduled to re-air on satellite channel Discovery UK in the Summer of 2017.
