Rick Harrison net worth: Rick Harrison is an American business owner and realty TV star who has a net worth of $8 million. Rick Harrison obtained his net worth by being part of the Harrison family which owns the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Harrison family has become famous thanks to the reality television show "Pawn Stars" which follows the antics and hijinx that take place in the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. As of December 2013, Pawn Stars has aired an impressive seven full seasons and more than 250 episodes since debuting in July 2009. Pawn Stars is by far the number one most popular show on The History Channel. The show is so popular that History renews the series in batches of 80 episodes, which is highly unusual for any television show, let alone a reality series. Rick Harrison was born on June 2, 1965 in Lexington, North Carolina. In 1967, Rick's family moved to San Diego. In 1981 they made their final move to Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1989, Rick and his father, Richard "Old Man" Harrison, founded the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop just two miles off the Las Vegas strip. At the age of 13, Rick began running the pawnshop with his father. As legend has it, Rick originally dropped out of high school because he was making over two thousand dollars a week selling fake Gucci handbags. Today Rick's son Corey Harrison also works in the store and is seen on the show along with childhood best friend Austin "Chumlee" Russell. Rick's nickname on the show is "The Spotter" because of his keen eye for under valued items. Their pawn shop received its first taste of media exposure after being featured on the Comedy Central show "Insomniac with Dave Attell" in 2003. After that appearance Rick spent four years trying to convince various networks to create an entire series about their shop.
