Olivia Black was born in the United States of America. She is a model, businesswoman, and former reality television personality, best known for her work as a part of the History television show entitled “Pawn Stars”. She was a part of the series for three years, and her firing from the show attracted a lot of controversy.
The Riches of Olivia Black
How rich is Olivia Black? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her fame from the television show helped push her career forward, and she has also gained income from a business endeavor. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Suicide Girls
Very little is known about Olivia’s life prior to her rise to fame, as she has shared very limited information regarding her childhood, family, and education. At an early point in her life, she became interested in modelling, but sported a lot of tattoos in her body. Though it was not conventional, she then discovered the website Suicide Girls, which would become a platform for her to gain online recognition.
This online community focuses on the photography of models known as Suicide Girls, attractive women who don’t conform to the normal ideas of beauty. It was founded in 2001, and most of the site is only accessible to paying members, who can access images provided by models or photographers from all around the world. Payment also grants them access to personal profiles, blogging platforms, a merchandise store, and groups based on various interests. The community is very popular, and has been referenced in pop culture such as in the television show “Californication”.
In 2010, Black was cast to become a part of the television show “Pawn Stars”, the reality television series filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada, which follows the daily activities of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, a family business which opened in 1989. The shop is owned by Rock Harrison as the business was passed to him by his father, Richard “Old Man” Harrison. Other employees in the business include Rick’s son Corey, and his childhood friend Chumlee. The show became History’s highest rated of all.
In each episode, the staff interacts with customers who bring in items to sell or pawn. The staff then discusses the historical background of the item, and sometimes consult experts before haggling on the price. Some of the experts who’ve appeared in the show have gone on to create their own spin-off programs, ne of whom is antique restorer Rick Dale, who became the star of “American Restoration’. Auto restoration expert Danny “The Count” Koker became the star of the show “Counting Cars”.
Life after Pawn Stars
In 2013, Black was suddenly fired from production, even after three years of consistently good reviews, and numerous fans accrued. A few days after her firing, a publication broke the news that Olivia had modeled for Suicide Girls, and that her past includes participation in soft core pornography. A lot of the staff members knew about her past but didn’t mind it, but it was the production company that let her go. She filed a lawsuit claiming that the production company knew about her background but hired her anyway. No results came out from the lawsuit, so it may have been settled privately or dismissed.
