Reality TV Stars Draw Crowds Of Autograph Seekers In Durant


DURANT, OK -- Stars of a popular reality show signed autographs for legions of fans during a visit to Choctaw Casino Resort.

Four cast members from the History Channel's "Pawn Stars" autographed pictures at Gilley's. The show chronicles the activities inside a 24-hour Las Vegas pawn shop run by a father, son, grandson, and the grandson's friend. As you might imagine, some strange things happen there.

"Probably one of the weirdest things that I've ever had is I've had people come in with human skulls they want to pawn," says show star Rick Harrison. "It's my weird life For some reason, people really like four fat guys in a pawn shop. I'm still a little overwhelmed with it. It's just a lot of people keep watching the show, so we keep doing it."

"They signed a picture and they have T-shirts and things, so that's what we ended up doing," says autograph seeker Courtnie McCloskey of Fort Worth, Tex.

When we stopped by on Saturday night, almost 2,000 people had already gotten autographs, with more waiting in line. Fans say it was a great opportunity to see the stars in person.

Casino officials said Sunday that about 2,500 people received autographs.
