The story behind Rick Lagina
Your everyday American Joe, Rick Lagina, like many of us, had childhood dreams of solving mysteries, digging up hidden treasure, and becoming a hero.
After a lifetime of 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. Pirates, the Holy Grail, the English Bard, and plenty of swashbuckling all play their part in the Mystery, and Rick’s mission inspired the reality TV show The Curse of Oak Island – Yes, there is a curse, too 😱😮😱
The series follows him and his brother Marty’s exploits as they scour the haunted Oak Island in search of, what is widely believed to be, buried treasure worth millions. The brothers stumbled on information about the Island when they were reading an issue of Reader’s Digest that featured the story. After a TV company approached the duo, asking them to shoot a reality TV show about the Island, they embarked on the quest with two other treasure hunters. The hugely popular show aired in January 2014 and is now in its sixth season.
To boost their chances of finding the Island’s treasure, Rick and Marty sought the assistance of archeological and historical experts, along with high-tech gadgets and sheer determination.
