Ashley and Seth fight over Roulette board game
Hardcore Pawn not only featured arguments between disgruntled customers, but the explosive TV series, which wrapped back in 2015, often included fiery rows between co-owner siblings Seth and Ashley Gold. Now a former employee tells Express.co.uk about being “caught in the crossfire”.
Hardcore Pawn finished airing after nine seasons on TruTV all the way back in 2015.
Despite wrapping almost ten years ago, a new generation of viewers are getting their pawn shop fix via viral clips shared on TikTok and YouTube.
Segments from the explosive programme, which followed drama at American Jewlery and Loan, continue to reach thousands every day.
Owned by businessman Les Gold, he shared the store’s responsibilities with his argumentative son and daughter duo Ashley and Seth.
Throughout the show’s seasons, Ashley and Seth would often disagree and would have loud rows in the middle of the famous pawn shop.
Ashley even stormed out of the store in one episode, not returning for days after another fiery fight with her brother Seth.
Now, former American Jewlery and Loan employee Bobby Janiec exclusively tells Express.co.uk about some of their biggest battles.
He said: “They were brother and sister, owners of the store, managers of the store and co-workers so you have a lot of dynamic there between two human beings.”
Ashley has actually left the family business now, leaving dad Les and brother Seth to look after their pawn shop empire in America.
But they continue their sibling rivalry to this day, taking part in virtual “battles” on TikTok.
Reflecting on the pair’s previous bust-ups, Bobby J told Express.co.uk: “They fought, and it was uncomfortable at times.
“I was in the middle of a couple of those arguments, just caught in the crossfire.”

Speaking on fights between customers, Bobby added: “That just happened. There was stuff that happened in that store whether there was a camera there or not.
“You didn’t need a camera for somebody to be upset.
“What people don’t understand is that there’s a lot of emotion in that transaction for that customer.
“It’s very easy for you sitting at home watching the show to pass judgement on people who are maybe going through a difficult time that’s being caught on camera.”
Telling Express.co.uk about his exit from Hardcore Pawn and current relationship with Ashley and Seth, Bobby said: “I haven’t talked to them.
“I left the shop in 2016 and I haven’t spoken to them since then.
“People are calling for a reunion but I don’t think I’d ever be invited for something like that, I was just an employee.
“I was never under contract to appear, I was just there and got lucky.”
