Reality television is definitely an odd beast to approach. On the surface, the concept of following around what otherwise would have been considered a sort of ordinary existence and putting it on television to make people with run-of-the-mill jobs famous is really an incredible thought that managed to just seemly take off one day and as an entertainment platform, this niche hasn’t looked back and has been thriving since day one. It’s really interesting to see what new shows come out on the air and you definitely can’t help but appreciate some of the classics that led the reality television framework.
Whether you loved it or hated it, American Chopper was definitely one of the shows that would prove to be the most popular of its time, a time where reality television was really just getting ball rolling. People became infatuated with the interaction that would go on in this high-end motorcycle customization and fabrication shop. We all got used to watching the characters on screen so much that we began to follow them, becoming incredibly interested in how they interacted day-to-day, that was, until that fateful moment when everybody had to part ways, whether it was because they simply moved on from the venture at Orange County Choppers or because the show ended up going off the air.
This time, we catch up with a fan favorite of the show in Rick Petko, a fabricator and builder from the show and a man who everybody seemed to latch onto. Now, the show has been off the air for years but what has this reality star been up to? In the video below, we get to dive into just that, discovering what exactly it is that Rick has been keeping himself busy with since reality television isn’t paying the bills anymore.
