This show is running from past 20 years, and still going strong; might even achieve its 50th anniversary, who knows? It’s considered as international hit! However, you cannot ignore the absurdity it brings in from its Japanese source material, but somehow the kids across the world are crazy about this show. Even though it’s a kids show, there some disturbing facts related to its legacy that you may find shocking! Let’s go through the most astonishing ones..
1) Poor Rangers – The Actors Were Under-Paid!
The Original Red Ranger, Austin John told media that the show provided the main actors the fame, but the pay was appalling! He compared the pay of a Power Rangers actor to a waiter in fast food joint. It’s said that Haim Saban was making tons of money, but always cringed back when it came to sharing the benefits. Austin also detailed that he used live in a Jeep, once he dispatched the show, because he was not able to save anything from the meagre pay.
