The next season of “Fast N’ Loud” will be without one of their most iconic stars, Aaron Kaufman. Yep, you heard right: after 13 long years, the bearded wonder is officially leaving Gas Monkey Garage.
One of reality television greatest bromances is apparently coming to an end as Fast N’ Loud star Richard Rawlings has confirmed that Aaron Kaufman is leaving Gas Monkey Garage.
“As you may have heard by now, the Bearded Wonder has decided to leave Gas Monkey Garage,” Richard wrote in a post on Gas Monkey Garage site. “Aaron has been a part of Gas Monkey Garage since day one, and it will be a painstaking process moving forward without his talents,” he adds.
While no reason has been given for Kaufman’s departure, Richard Rawlings took to Gas Monkey’s website to announce his leaving. Richard made it clear that Aaron was not dismissed and that how he was shocked at the decision.
For Fast N Loud, this is not the first Monkey to take flight. It seems that each year has seen the departure of multiple staff members. The spin-off show, Misfit Garage, was originally staffed entirely by former Gas Monkey employees.
When reached for comment, Discovery Channel has nothing but positives to say about Kaufman. Also in their statement was a hint that Kaufman might end up in a future network project. With his experience, he is a natural.
A change in work scenery and environment can do wonders. Most fans were completely fine with this future and believed with complete confidence that Aaron wouldn’t stop what he loved and impressing everyone with it regardless where he worked and who he worked with.
