Something for Everyone on “Pawn Stars”

By   /   April 11, 2013  /   No Comments

History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” has been a success since it debuted in 2009.  One of the shows stars, Rick Harrison doesn’t seem to have an answer for why the show is so popular.  “I have no idea,” he says. “Obviously, America loves fat guys in a pawn shop.”   He does, however, know what his favorite pawn purchase has been of all the items he’s purchased in his years at Gold and Silver Pawn Shop – a book printed in 1524 about alchemy by Sir Isaac Newton that details how to turn base metals into gold.  As cable network’s most popular fare, this is the kind of history and artifacts fans see on a regular basis.   “I have learned a lot about history from watching the show,” says Rachael Augustine, 23, of Zephyrhills. “You don’t know what will show up.”  In addition to history you get to see the art of the deal in action as well as a cast of very entertaining characters giving the show something for everyone
