The center of the History’s hit show, The Curse of Oak Island, Rick and Marty Lagina are two of the most intriguing characters on TV today.
Originally from Kingsford, Michigan, the brothers have been working to unveil the Oak Island mystery for years.
Rick, the older brother, became obsessed with Oak Island, an island on the south shore of Nova Scotia after learning about it from the 1965 issue of Reader’s Digest.
After learning that there were treasures buried in the island, Rick dreamed of solving the Oak Island mystery and is still working on it.
Rick’s younger brother, Marty has been supporting him and is also attempting to make the island a tourist destination.
In 2007, the Lagina brothers obtained a controlling interest in Oak Island Tours, which owns most of the island.
‘The Curse of Oak Island’ premiered in January 2014 and is currently airing its fifth season in History Canada.
Rick is a retired postal worker, whereas Marty is a businessman.
Marty founded an oil and gas exploration and production company, Terra Energy, Ltd., in 1982, which he sold to CMS Energy for $60 million in 1995.
Moreover, Marty also owns Heritage Sustainable, which is one of the largest wind turbine companies in the mid-western US.
He also owns a winery. In the early 2000s, he started a 3-acre winery, "Row 7," which has now been expanded to Villa Mari Vineyards.
Marty now owns a net worth of $100 million, and Rick is worth $2 million.
It’s been over 200 years since people started exploring the Oak Island, and it’s Lagina brothers, whose attempt is still ongoing.
