Fast N' Loud was a reality-styled Discovery Channel TV show[1] featuring Richard Rawlings and his crew from the Dallas, Texas-based Gas Monkey Garage as they search for tired and run-down cars, and restore them for profit.

The show was successful in its first season. The show also has a spin-off show called Misfit Garage[2][3] and Fast N' Loud: Demolition Theater in which Richard and other employees, and also the "victims" of the same clip watch these with their comments[4]

Rawlings, along with former GMG mechanic Aaron Kaufman, were invited to participate in a motorcycle build-off with long-established bike builders Orange County Choppers, Paul Jr. Designs, and Jesse James. Rawlings and Kaufman came in second to Paul Jr. with James coming in third.

Fast N' Loud is produced for Discovery by Pilgrim Studios, with Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder serving as executive producers.[5]

On June 19, 2019, the 15th season was announced to premiere on July 8, 2019.[6] Season 16 was announced on March 2, 2020, and premiered on March 30.[7]

On episode 1578 of the The Joe Rogan Experience (aired on December 15, 2020), Rawlings confirmed that Fast N' Loud had ended.[8]

Reception[edit]

In 2016, a New York Times survey of the 50 TV shows with the most Facebook likes found that Fast N' Loud was "the show most favored by men on the list, by far — 83% of 'likes' came from men".[9]
