If you are a huge fan of reality shows, you should know about pawn stars, One of the most popular reality shows of all time.
People seem to be falling in love with reality shows as it all gets to show how people do things.
The pawn stars all started with Rick Harrison and his sons, being the old man and the boys running their Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nevada. They have managed to attract a lot of viewers and fans with their content and the show has managed to stand the test of time, being over a decade.
Rick Harrison passed away at the age of 77 in 2018 and his son Rick Harrison took charge of the shop.
After Rick’s death, Rick paid a tribute to his father with a touching message.
“He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn, and his many fans the world over,” Rick wrote on Instagram. “He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad. That I got to share him with so many others and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have experienced with him.
“I think about him every day. I had a different relationship with him,” Rick said.
“Most people, when they turn 18, they go off to school, get a job and move out. I worked with my father from the time I was a kid. He stayed in the Navy for years because of me. Otherwise, it would have been really difficult with my medical expenses. But despite my epilepsy, he never treated me differently.”
Rick had to drop out of high school to take over the business and learn the loins.
According to reports, Rick has accumulated over $9 Million, thanks to the show, his business, and the restaurant.
Rick has a lot to say about the reality show.
“First off, most reality shows are pretty much scripted. Mine is not,” Rick said of his show. “And it’s truly different every week.
You can have a show about motorcycles or cars, but there’s only the only so much you can do with a motorcycle or a car every week. And people want to learn, but they don’t want to feel like they’re sitting around with a professor.
I give all the history lessons and I make learning entertaining on the show.” He didn’t let his father down, he will surely be proud of him.
