Corey is often very vocal about his love of motorbikes, but he doesn’t talk about his history of bike accidents.
Back in 2014, Corey had one particularly nasty incident, he was thrown from his bike after a fender mount fell off and sent him into a tailspin. Luckily for him, he walked away with only a fractured hand.
Pimps Come to Buy Jewelry
While some of the customers who come in are good for TV, others just don't make the cut.
Every now and then, local pimps often come into their shop to buy jewelry since they can bring it back in later and get half the price as an advance against it. It's a loophole that helps them to pay bail since their cash will be confiscated if they're arrested. Interesting, but not exactly suitable for family TV.
Deanna's Previous Marriage
Rick married Deanna Burditt back in 2013, but she had been married before, but their marriage wasn't exactly an amicable one.
Her ex, Richard Burditt, was convicted of domestic abuse, but he never served his time for it. Rick alleges "bureaucracy" as the reason for that, and the topic is clearly still a sore subject for both of them.
Rick And His Fans
Pawn Stars has loads of young fans, and one boy posted a letter to the shop along with his Game Boy in the hope of trading it in for $30. The young fan in question is an autistic child nicknamed Little J.
Not only did Rick send him the money, but he also sent back the Game Boy! As if that wasn't generous enough, he wrote him a letter to thank him and encouraged him to play, along with a signed photo with the cast.
You Won't Find Them Behind the Counter
Back when the show started, Gold & Silver was just like any other pawnshop - with most of their business being done over the counter.
But now, because of their success on TV, if we went into the store we won't see the cast at work. They're far more likely to be by the merchandise stand signing autographs.
