Rick Dale is a reality program host and the owner of Rick Restorations, an antique restoration shop in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After appearing on the highly acclaimed History Channel reality series American Restorations, better known as Rick’s Restorations, he rose to renown. The show debuted on October 25, 2010, as the first spin-off of the popular reality TV show Pawn Stars.
Rick’s wife Kelly, sons Tyler and Brett, brother Ron, and the team of professionals who would restore American vintage items to their former glory were all featured in the series.
Since 1994, he has been married to Kelly
Rick and Kelly have been married for over 25 years, having married on November 11, 1994. Tyler, a son, and Ally, a daughter, are the couple’s children. They also have a son, Brett Otterman, who is Kelly’s child from a previous relationship [before marrying Rick].
Furthermore, they originally met at the same gym where they both worked out. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal in February 2016, the couple revealed how they met.
“I used to go to the gym at 3 a.m.,” Rick explained. Kelly was also frequently present at the time, and one night she announced, ‘Hey, there’s this party.’ ‘Would you like to go?’ I suppose it’s a date. When I arrive, there is a slew of males, and Kelly has a date.”
“Am I heading down to promote another bar, or is it a date, or what?” I wonder. Rick expressed himself. “So, this time, I got all dolled up, and when I arrived, she was all by herself.”
For Kelly, that was the turning point in their relationship. She remembered seeing him dressed up on their date night wonderfully. She remembered:

I didn’t care for his long hair and disliked the way he dressed. He looked and smelt so good when he came in that night that I stepped up to him and gave him a big embrace before getting him drunk.
The happy couple is now living happily with their loving family. Through his social media accounts, the reality star frequently displays his close relationship with his family.
In November 2016, on his wedding anniversary, he published a Twitter photo with his wife, wishing her well and adding that she was the family’s heart and soul.
“Happy Anniversary to my dearest friend and better half @ KellyDale_,” he wrote. You are the family’s heart and soul! “I will always and forever love you!”
His second wife is Kelly
Rick had been through a bad marriage before marrying Kelly. Rick’s website states that his first marriage ended in divorce in 1993, even though he has divulged little nothing about her.
He was so saddened by the divorce that he shuttered his store and went bankrupt in the restoration business. Kelly, on the other hand, came into his life and stood by him to help Rick take his business to new heights.
After six seasons on ‘American Restorations,’ he was fired
The History Channel abruptly fired Rick and his colleagues after six seasons of American Restorations, citing a desire to reinvent the show with a fresh cast and premise in 2016. Rick was the first cast in the series in 2010, and the first six seasons were shot in his restoration shop, Rick’s Restorations, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The show focused on restoring numerous vintage antiques to their original state and covered the daily activities of his antique restoration studio.
Rick’s relatives assisted with the repair efforts in the series. His brother Ron, wife Kelly, and son Tyler all worked at the store and were featured on the television show.
Through his family’s business, he has a huge net worth
Rick has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, attributable to his family’s business. Even after being sacked from the American Restoration series, Rick continued to manage his restoration firm Rick’s Restorations in Las Vegas.
Rick’s Restorations’ business operations and expansion were assisted by his wife, Kelly. Tyler, their oldest son, leads the business, while Brett works as a salesman and a picker. Similarly, their daughter Ally is the office manager and in charge of accounts receivable, while their niece Michelle is the assistant manager and in charge of goods.
Based on those data, Rick’s Restorations is a family business that has made Rick a happy guy thus far. Rick went on to feature in several other TV shows after American Restoration, including Pawn Stars, Counting Cars with Danny Koker, and the documentary Coked Up!, which helped him make a few more bucks.
Newport Beach, California native
Rick was born in Newport Beach, California, on December 13, 1970. His family later moved to Boulder City, Nevada, when he was 13, where he was raised alongside his younger brother Ron Dale.
Rick got a fascination for driving from his father, a professional racer, from an early age. After building a soapbox racer with his father, the reality star moved on to working on vehicles, motorcycles, hot rods, and, finally, Coke machines and gas pumps.
Rick’s Restorations was founded as a result of his father’s knowledge, which led him into the restoration industry.
