If you have ever tuned in to an episode of Pawn Stars then you know all about the quirky Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas run by the Harrison family. While the reality show airs on the History channel which is a bit of change from the dramatizations and docudramas it usually shows it definitely fits the historical bill. The three men who make up the main cast of the show Rick, Corey, and “The Old Man” are a font of historical knowledge when it comes to some of the merchandise that is pawned at their shop.
With the show has been on the air for nearly a decade, the audience has been able to see this business grow and some of the truly special or wacky goods that have moved through it. That is not to say that this has been an easy gig for the family, just being themselves on national television. In fact, there is a whole list of rules that the stars have to follow if they want to keep their series running. Let’s take a look at the craziest ones.
All the memorabilia, antiques, and weird items that make their way into the shop are actually chosen by the production team. People will come to pawn their goods but if production doesn’t think they are valuable or have an interesting backstory then they will not be featured on the show.
The Harrisons can select items they think might be good for the show but they do not get to have the final say at all.
