The History channel’s Pawn Stars is now approaching its 13th season, and over the years it’s carved out a reputation as one of the most popular reality shows on U.S. television. What’s more, Rick, Corey, the Old Man and everyone’s favorite, Chumlee, have been propelled to superstar status off the back of the series. But for everything this landmark show reveals about the pawn store business, there’s still plenty more going on behind the scenes.
20. The crew enjoyed a private Lynyrd Skynyrd gig
It’s no secret that ’70s rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote and performed the show’s theme music for season four onwards. What you might not know, however, is that when the band went to Las Vegas to meet the guys, they also performed an impromptu gig in the store’s parking lot.
19. Olivia Black wasn’t actually fired
Olivia Black started working the night shift in season five, but afterwards it was revealed that she had done a nude photoshoot for the website Suicide Girls and so was hastily removed from the show. As it turns out, however, it was the network who had an issue with this and not Rick and company. In fact, even after leaving the show Black kept working at the store, before eventually leaving of her own accord.
