Are you ready, Outsiders, for some “Pawn Stars” action? You better believe Rick Harrison is all in for new episodes to rock out.
One way he’s getting excited about the latest show is by, well, showing off on Instagram. No, he’s still serious about his business. He is still about all that action, boss.
Yet Harrison has gone on the social media platform to share his dapper look like a cowboy. Check out this post from “Pawn Stars.”
The caption from the Instagram post said, “Rick’s Wild West – On this week’s #PawnStars, Rick gives us a quick history of the Wild West! What do you think of his cowboy attire? Enjoy this clip, then tune in this Saturday at 9/8c for an all-new episode with incredible items, including a unique western art piece.”
‘Pawn Stars’ Star Talked About Cowboys and Their Stories
Harrison also talked in the “Pawn Stars” video about cowboys and their stories.
“By the second half of the 19th century after the Civil War, America was in serious expansion mode further and further west,” Harrison said. “With this exciting, new territory came exciting, new stories for American boys to gobble up.”
The “Pawn Stars” star mentions Calamity Jane and Billy the Kid and their stories. But Harrison said those stories were far from reality.
“Cowboys were glorified on the page, but in the real world they were dirty and unglamorous jobs,” he said.
Sometimes, Harrison’s work on “Pawn Stars” isn’t always sweet, nice, and easy.
You can catch new episodes of The History Channel show starting Saturday, Sept. 18, at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m Central.
Harrison Discussed Intricacies Around Determining If Rolex Watch Is Real
When it comes to looking at things like watches to determine if they are fake or real, Rick Harrison goes to town.
He takes his work seriously. The man features his own pawn shop on “Pawn Stars” a lot.
Harrison did an interview with the National Public Radio show Fresh Air. He talked about the things he has to deal with as a pawn shop owner.
Now he has to deal with things like Rolex watches being real or fake.
“There’s a list of things that are right on a Rolex watch that’s not right on a fake,” he said. “The case has to be right. The dial of the watch has to be right. The crystal, the stem, the movement. If everything checks out, everything’s fine.”
But there are people who really work on those forged watches. In fact, some of them might put $1,000-$2,000 into a fake watch and end up pocketing some cash.
