Rick Harrison Net Worth 2020 – Rick Harrison is an American businessman, actor, and reality television personality who is mainly popular as the co-owner of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
Rick was born on March 22, 1965, in Davidson, North Carolina. Harrison’s interest in business was influenced by the “Great Britain” book series written by John D. Fitzgerald which he read while growing up.
In 1967, his family relocated to San Diego where he attended high school but later dropped out to pursue his business career. His passion for business escalated after he started making $2,000 a week from selling fake Gucci bags.
His parents were involved in the real estate business but after it failed, the family in 1981 moved to Las Vegas.
Eight years later in 1989, Harrison together with his father, Richard “Old Man” Harrison opened Gold & Silver Pawn Shop located about two miles away from the Vegas strip.
Fast forward to 2005, Gold & Silver was making $700,000 in interest income from loaning $3 million. Soon the pawnshop became popular among LV residents.
Gold & Silver Pawnshop made its first media feature in the Comedy Central show “Insomniac with Dave Attell” in 2003.
Afterward, Rick began pitching the idea of a pawn shop reality TV show and after four years it finally appealed to The History Channel.
The original name of the show was Pawning History but was later changed to Pawn Stars, a marketing strategy as it played off the term “porn stars”. It worked! Pawn Stars which debuted in 2009 became The History Channel’s highest-rated show by 2011.
The show features Harrison, his father, his son Corey “Big Hoss” Rick Harrison, and Corey’s childhood friend, Austin “Chumlee” Russell. The History channel renewed the series in 80-episode batches, a rarity for reality TV shows. In 2014, the family began a second show Pawnography.
