Fast N' Loud is 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. Fast N' Loud is unique in the reality genre, since the episodes sometimes incorporate a skit into the theme of the episode.

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 2nd to Paul Jr. with James coming in 3rd.

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

On June 19, 2019, it was announced that the fifteenth season will premiere on July 8, 2019.[6] Season 16 was announced on March 2, 2020 and will premiere on March 30, 2020.[7]

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 our list, by far—83 percent of 'likes' came from men".[8]
