Find out how he did it
The History Channel’s Pawn Stars has a real location in Vegas, but if you go there you’ll see it’s flooded with tourists, and is therefore run more like a museum or tourist attraction than a regular pawn shop, but this doesn’t mean the show is fake.
Want a chance to win “treasurable items from the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop”? This summer, History Channel is launching Pawnography, a game show based on Pawn Stars.
After a generous under-the-table deal was revealed, Pawn Stars‘ Rick Harrison began earning praise. He responded that celebrities “should be doing this on a regular basis.”
For a “Woman Crush Wednesday” post yesterday, Pawn Stars‘ Chumlee introduced his followers to his girlfriend, Tanya Hyjazi. The two have apparently been hot and heavy for a while… Chumlee even bought his lady a boob job for her birthday!
The writers and producers who work so hard to bring us shows like Pawn Stars are severely undercompensated for their work, the Writers Guild America East union claims. The union found the average reality worker loses $30,000 to “wage theft” each year.
World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop co-owner (and star of History’s reality series Pawns Stars) Rick Harrison married DeAnna Burditt Sunday at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, California. Rick looked quite suave in his black tux, but he was eclipsed by his bride DeAnna, who looked absolutely stunning in a full-length form-fitting backless white gown with cutouts down the side! Also looking their best were Rick’s Pawn Stars cohorts, including his son Corey, his pops Richard “Old Man” Harrison (complete with panama hat), ring bearer Austin “Chumlee” Russell, and minister… Danny Koker from Counting Cars?!?
In honor of History Channel moving its smash hit reality series Pawn Stars to Thursday nights the network has been participating in Throwback Thursdays the last few weeks, sharing some older pictures of World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop’s Rick Harrison, Richard “Old Man” Harrison and fan favorite Austin “Chumlee” Russell. Keep reading to see the pics — plus we’ve matched them up side-by-side with recent photos so you can more clearly see the differences!
UPDATE - History has also added an older photo of Rick’s son Corey Harrison, which looks to be from his high school graduation! Yep, we added it to the post. (Might be the best of the bunch!)
