The mystery of a treasure supposed to be concealed on the gorgeous Oak Island (a small isle off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada) has intrigued Rick Lagina since he was a young lad is the focus of the episode.
The Lagina family, particularly the brothers Rick and Marty Lagina, is from Kingsford, Northern Michigan, and is known to be fairly close-knit. Rick Lagina’s personal life is largely unknown, except from the fact that he works for the US Postal Service, as he prefers to keep things secret. We now know some interesting details about his boyhood thanks to The Curse of Oak Island. Rick Lagina was only 11 years old when he first learned about Oak Island from a 1965 Reader’s Digest piece on the enigmatic island, its myriad legends, myths, discoveries, and the supposed “curse” surrounding it. The essay enthralled Rick to the point where he became obsessed with the mystery and fantasized about visiting the island one day. He is a motivated and honorable man, as evidenced by the fact that he followed his dreams and purchased more than half of the island for his investigations.
Rick Lagina found a means to realize his goal after retiring in 2005, when he stumbled upon a newspaper advertising announcing the island’s sale. Rick had attempted to obtain the island in the past, even going so far as to meet the legendary Oak Island explorer Dan Blankenship, but things had not gone his way at the time. However, in 2005, Dan Blankenship, who was in charge of the Oak Island auction, gave precedence to the Lagina brothers’ bid because of their long-standing love of the island and hunting, allowing them to purchase the island. They began their search in 2006, with the goal of making the island a more appealing tourist destination. They established a tour company to assist travelers in navigating the island, seeing all of the important places such as the “Money Pit” and “Borehole 10-X,” and familiarizing them with the island’s different myths and traditions. The island also includes a state-of-the-art museum that contains all of the exquisite artifacts discovered on the island, including coins, metal fragments, relics, inscriptions, and even human remains. The History channel was drawn to the Lagina brothers’ unwavering commitment and persistence, and they attempted to persuade Rick Lagina to allow them transform their effort into an educational TV reality program. After initially rejecting the offer, he eventually consented on the condition that the program be kept as authentic as possible and that no attempt be made to transform it into a theatrical production. Finally, in 2014, the show debuted on the History Channel and immediately became a smash with viewers, making the Lagina brothers overnight celebrities. The Curse of Oak Island’ enlists the expertise of famous experts and combines cutting-edge technology into their investigation. The panel of specialists effectively explains to their devoted viewers the numerous hypotheses surrounding the island and its alleged ‘curse,’ which is thought to be responsible for some of the mysterious events that have occurred on the island over the years.
