Rick Lagina Overview
Your everyday American Joe, Rick Lagina, like many of us, had childhood dreams of solving mysteries and finding treasures when he was 11-years-old. After a lifetime of not pursuing other projects, he finally found the courage and time to follow his dreams and famously began his mission to solve the Oak Island Mystery. More than that, instead of just solving a mystery, he became star of the reality television show The Curse of Oak Island. The series follows the exploits of Rick Lagina, together with his brother Marty, as they go through scouring Oak Island in search of, what are widely believed to be, treasures and historical artifacts worth millions. The brothers stumbled upon knowledge of the island as they were reading an issue of Reader’s Digest that talked about Oak Island and its hidden wealth and treasures. After a television company approached the duo and asked them to do a reality TV show about the island, they embarked on the quest with two other island dwellers. The hugely popular show started airing January 2014 and is now on its sixth season.
The show captured the heart of audiences worldwide due to Rick’s gritted determination and a never-say-die attitude. To boost their chances of finding the treasures in the island, Rick and Marty went on to seek the help of archeological and historical experts as they employed modern technology and gadgetry in their quest. In spite of the adventure and fun that comes from treasure hunting, what made the television show even more appealing was that the island is believed to be cursed and there are perils that Rick had to endure in his quest to conquer Oak Island, and his own fears.
