Richard Rawlings’ Net Worth & Married Life

We can’t begin this list without the man that runs the place, Richard Rawlings is the owner of Gas Monkey Garage which forms the cast of Fast N’ Loud. He was born in 1969 in Fort Worth, Texas. You can say his love for cars began as a kid with his father taking him to auto shows. Rawlings would start constructing cars himself, owning one when he was just 14 years old.

A graduate from Eastern Hills High School, Rawlings was employed as a firefighter, paramedic, and law enforcement officer. In 1999, he founded a printing and advertising company by the name of Lincoln Press. He would shut it down in 2004 but not before opening the Gas Monkey Garage in 2002.

Over the next ten years, he and his Garage would cater to clients around the world in the fabrication and restoration of all kinds of cars and bikes. It will also catch the attention executives in the Discovery Channel who would pitch and create a successful show. We can’t talk about Richard Rawlings’ net worth without including his hefty salary, which he receives from the show.

Richard Rawlings Net Worth

Speaking of Richard Rawlings’ net worth, let us not beat around the bush anymore. Richard Rawlings’ net worth was $15 million as of 2012. Considering this was eight years ago, not only should it be higher as of 2020 but, it should also be more significant in recent times. Much of it may have something to do with his Fast N’ Loud salary of $50,000 per episode, which should also be more as this data was also from 2012.

Besides his earning as a reality TV star, Richard Rawlings is also an excellent entrepreneur and author. He is the owner of Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill, which is open in two different locations of Dallas. He also serves as the proprietor of Gas Monkey Live for musical performances as well as ‘Gas Monkey,’ an energy drink line. Last but not least, he is the author behind his autobiographical book, ‘Fast N’ Loud: Blood, Sweat, and Beers.’

Richard Rawlings Married Life

Richard Rawlings’ married life is a bit more tumultuous than his professional life and net worth. He married his first wife, Karen K Grames, but his marriage did not even outlast the year. He would then marry Suzanne Marie Mergele in Las Vegas, Nevada. His second marriage also did not fare out well as after a few years, even it began to crumble, leading to their divorce in 2009.

However, it seems just too much history was in existence between the ex-spouses. So they reconciled in 2015, this time in Cabo, Mexico. But fans would once again find out that they were separating and filing for divorce as of March 11, 2019.

However, most Fast N’ Loud fans know that as of recent, Rawlings was dating Katerina Panos Deason as of late. In August 17, 2019, he took their relationship a step further by proposing to her. We are still waiting for them to get married, but for now, she is just her fiancée. Katerina’s beauty may confuse you, but she is 18 months older than Rawlings at the age of 52 years.

She was the former fifth wife of Texan billionaire Darwin Deason who sold his company, Affiliated Computer Services (ACS), to Xerox for $6.4 billion. It is no wonder why she looks the part of royalty.

Aaron Kaufman’s Net Worth, Girlfriend & Bio

Why did Aaron Kaufman Leave Fast N’ Loud?

Aaron Kaufman technically is a former Fast N’ Loud cast member as he left the show in 2018. Yes, it turns out that season 14 was Aaron Kaufman’s last with the series. Like most reality stars that go shows, Aaron Kaufman’s reason for leaving the show is very similar to having some time-off and rediscovering himself. However, it turns out that Kaufman was actually going his own separate way.

People who were personally fans of him can him find in a few remote button’s distances as Aaron Kaufman now is the star of his own Discovery car show, ‘Shifting Gears.’ The six-episode series had a second season in 2019 after a successful run with season 1 in 2018. The future of the show regarding season 3 is unavailable at the moment.

Aaron Kaufman’s Net Worth & Bio

Aaron Kaufman was January 26, 1982, in Texas, USA. He grew up in Crowley, Texas, with his family and learned the basics of repairing and fabricating cars from his father, who was a mechanic. As Kaufman’s life started to venture more and more towards the career of building and repairing cars, it was only natural for him to meet someone as precisely passionate about it as himself, and that was Richard Rawlings.

The 38-year-old began working for Rawlings in the Gas Monkey Garage as the lead mechanic for around 14 years, including the six years we got to see him on Fast N’ Loud. He also owns a company, Arclight Fabrication, that is responsible for the supply of aftermarket components of Ford F-100 pickups. Aaron Kaufman’s net worth is approximately $6 million.

Like Rawlings, Aaron Kaufman’s net worth is also a tad bit outdated since it was calculated in 2013. Unfortunately, that is all that we have, and like Aaron Kaufman, we have to work with what we have.

Aaron Kaufman’s Girlfriend & Dating History

It is almost impossible to track down the entire dating history of a man who has a secretive lifestyle like Aaron Kaufman. However, we do know of his recent romantic conquests, and his most recent girlfriend is really something. Aaron Kaufman’s newest girlfriend goes by the name Lauren Moore Knob. Not much is there to know about his girlfriend, as so far, we only know her Instagram account.

In it, you can see her post more photos wither her two pit bulls than her boyfriend, Aaron Kaufman. She says so herself in her IG bio that she is a proud mother to her two pit bulls by the name of Lola and Lizzie Bean. It is through her Instagram activity that we know she and her boyfriend Kaufman have been dating since 2013.

Mike Coy’s Net Worth, Married & Dating Life

Mike Coy is the body specialist as well as the lead painter of Gas Monkey Garage. Gas Monkey Garage wished Coy a Happy Birthday on April 30, 2019, and said he was 24 years old, but we think that it may be a joke as Mike looks clearly old enough to be in his mid-40s. Coy was born and raised in McKinney, Texas, where he still resides with his family.

Mike Coy works on all vehicles as we see him do in ‘Fast N’ Loud’ but he himself in a motorbike persona who rides around in a KTM 1290 Super Duke R. His professional career with cars began since 1992. He was eventually brought to Gas Monkey Garage by Richard Rawlings for helping paint two Pontiac Firebirds.

Mike Coy’s net worth over his entire career with the Garage and as a Fast N’ Loud cast surely equals in no small amount. However, sadly we do not have any idea whatsoever about Mike Coy’s net worth.

We can say that he has a splendid net worth by looking at his marriage and family life. He is said to have married his wife Shanna Hobbs for a long time, but we could not find the information necessary to verify this information. So far, we do not even have any pictures and more data on his probable wife.

Even if his married life to his supposed wife, Shanna Hobbs were real, they are no longer husband and wife. Mike Coy does supposedly have two children with his wife, a daughter, and a son, but that could not stop their marriage from ending.

Mike Coy is currently dating a new woman, and the name of his new girlfriend is Constanza Pri. Mike Coy’s girlfriend is Italian and shares his passion for vehicles, most particularly bikes. She even enjoys revving it out with him in the race track. We don’t know any more than that, but she loves her dogs as well as a kid, who is probably her nephew.

Jason Aker’s Net Worth & Married Life

Jason Aker is the lead foreman and restoration expert of the Gas Monkey Garage. Aker hails from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where he was born on January 6, 1974. In total, Aker holds over 28 years of restoration experience, and Mustangs are his level of expertise as you may be able to tell with his choice of car, which is a ’66 Mustang Shelby GT350.

Aker was firstly brought by Richard Rawlings for his help in the restoration of the Twin Birds, and like co-star Mike Coy, he never left. Jason Aker’s time as the ‘Fast N’ Loud’ cast and his long stretching career is enough to earn him a decent net worth. However, Jason Aker’s net worth remains under review, so; you will have to do with the info that it could round up to a sum of millions.

Jason Aker also remains mostly successful in his married life. He is married to a beautiful wife, whose name is Apryl Aker for almost 23 long years. Together, they are parents to two adorable children. Their elder child is a daughter by the name of Savannah, who is already 20 years old, is studying at the University of Oklahoma, where she plays in the cheerleading band.

Charles Cimino’s Net Worth and Bio

Charles Cimino is the one who overlooks the wiring and light fabrication of the cars in the Gas Monkey Garage. Cimino also is a veteran in the field, with so much experience that he knew both Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman before being part of the GarageGarage. Not much is there to know about Charles Climino’s early life and bio.

According to a couple of sources, Charles Cimino’s net worth is approximately $700,000. We are still waiting for verification, but even if we estimate it ourselves, we will place Charles Cimino’s net worth at the range of $500,000 to $1 million. So, for the time being, we can say that $700K is his net worth. Despite having such massive net worth, Cimino prefers to drive a subtle Chevy Yukon in his car.

Jeremy Cheatham’s Net Worth & Bio

Jeremy Cheatham shares his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, with ‘Fast N’ Loud’ co-cast, Richard Rawlings. So, there is not much to imagine how he came to work for him at his Garage. Cheatham has been involved in the car fabrication business since 1998. His vast experience and career as a TV personality have undoubtedly meant a great deal of net worth for Jeremy Cheatham.

Sadly, Jeremy’s net worth remains under review even in 2020. Hopefully, we will have Jeremy Cheatham’s net worth for you very soon. Until then, we hope this much info is enough for you.

Jeremy Cheatham specializes in the field of semi-trucks. He himself is a proud owner of a ’94 Chevy SS, and both of his favorite projects in Fast N’ Loud and the projects he wants to work in the future are semis.

Did a ‘Fast N’ Loud’ Cast Die? Death in the ‘Fast N’ Loud’ Show

Did a ‘Fast N’ Loud’ cast member die? Yeah, you can say that there was a death in the Fast N’ Loud. It was none other than the legendary Burt Reynolds who many might remember died not so long ago on September 6, 2018, at the age of 82.

What many may not know is that Burt Reynolds is a bit of a muscle car enthusiast himself. So, when a Trans Am, same as the Burt Reynolds’ 1977 hit movie ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ came rolling int the Gas Monkey Garage, owner Richard Rawlings could not help himself. He and Aaron Kaufman, who are both big fans of the late actor, drove to his house to talk about the car as well as get his autograph to settle a bet worth $25,000.

It was one of the greatest episodes of the shows yet. Not only that, but in 2017 also, Burt Reynolds made an appearance in the 100 Monkeys episode of the show. After Burt Reynolds Death, Fast N’ Loud paid their tribute to Reynolds by presenting re-runs of the episodes starring the one and only. You could say Burt Reynolds in like the honorary cast member of the Discovery series.
