    They could get him a poster of Horshack to make it up to him.

    There was the time when they had a woman come in to check out a signed baseball

    Chumlee: What's the light for?
    Woman: So I can see the writing on the ball.

    If that's not scripted I don't know what is.

    And of course everyone knows that it was Ron Dale who brought in the coke machine, probably from the Rick's Restoration bone yard. Then they took it to his brother Rick to be restored.

    No, that's just the way Chumlee is. Rather bright when you don't expect it, and rather dim when you hit some of the smaller stuff.

    Chumlee got lucky finding Bob Dylan that time, but had a total brain fart when he asked Bob to make the inscription out to him.

    I highly doubt the light comment was scripted. The woman's incredulous response was much too good for a non actor, it had to be real.

    Chumlee's teeth whitening is way over the top. And it seems during the segments he is trying to smile while showing both his upper and lower teeth. It is weird.

    I don't really watch Pawn Stars anymore, but just caught part of an episode where a guy was trying to sell a trumpet signed by Herb Alpert. Rick was spouting off a bunch of facts about Herb, but kept calling him Herb Albert. :rolleyes: Whoever fed Rick all of the facts to make him seem so knowledgeable about the subject should have told him how to pronounce Herb's last name.

    Not a fan of Herb and I always thought his last name was Albert.

    I know in Canada we're really behind, but how far came by so recently - American Restoration had an episode where they restored an iron lung. Now, History Canada is so far back in Pawn Stars they run 4 new (to Canada) episodes a week. So about an hour later, the very same iron lunch machine (unrestored) was shown on Pawn Stars.

    Same guy, too. Hilarious. I think the air dates was Pawn Stars from July 2013 (yes, we're far behind) and American Restoration from August...

    American Restoration is/was a spin-off of Pawn Stars. In early episodes of Pawn Stars he would bring Rick (the Restoration guy) items to restore. Then eventually he got his own show.

    I really hope they are not gearing up for a Davey Deals spinoff. That guy needs to go.

    I could watch Rebecca talk about books for a half hour though :)

    Yea I don't have a clue what Davey Deals does or what they could spin off but he needs to go away.

    I don't see what the love for Rebecca is?

    Rick has said he is a used car salesman, for real.

    I guess I don't find her that attractive.

    I agree about Davey Deals. He is showing up way too often, so it does seem as if they are grooming him for something.

    The love for Rebecca comes from the fact that she is cute and smart. Two great qualities to see in the same person.

    I know.

    However, to see the same item on both shows is interesting. Even more is that it was the owner who brought it in because the Harrisons didn't want to buy it.

    It wasn't Rick Harrison bringing the item to Rick - it was someone else. Of course, by OAD, the Pawn Stars would first reject it, then a month later you see the guy bringing it Rick's to restore. (Yes, I know Rick H. probably gave the guy the address, but still).

    You see crossovers between the two a lot, but it's usually because the item was bought at the pawn shop and brought over to restore. Not an item that was rejected and the owner then brings over to restore.

    I was wondering whatever happened to Olivia Black, she was on for awhile and then suddenly was gone:

    [​IMG]

    Turns out she posed nude and they fired her. You'd think they would enjoy the press.

    Her pics are available through a google search. I am not a big fan of the tattoos though. And really confused about the 'it.' one.

    which was even more dumb because she was already a pin-up girl before she started working there.

    One article I read said it was the production company that said that she couldn't be on air anymore so the shop basically had to fire her.

    The article I read said Rick kept her on the job just off camera, and she eventually quit.

    That could be correct.
