Best Vegas Reality-Show Star

Pawn Stars is the reality show gift that keeps on giving, begetting Counting Cars and creating an, ahem, vehicle for its star, Danny Koker. Koker, the gravel-voiced, easygoing mechanic who runs the shop, had a ratings hit right off the rip, premiering to 4.3 million as the History Channel’s highest-rated debut. The show just wrapped a second season and is already filming its third, propelled as much by Koker’s relentless, infectious positivity as it is by the sweet whips that come out of his garage.
