WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas … the Player’s Edge!

PEARL CITY GRAD Shannon Aikau’s skills and local philosophy of “Built with Aloha” was featured on the History Channel’s Counting Cars. The show is about Danny “The Count” Koker’s restorations, building, buying and flipping things with motors, as well as the occasional pool table made from a Ford Ranchero. It’s a spinoff of the cable channel’s hugely popular Pawn Stars reality show. And on the episode with the Hawaii-born master mechanic, who’s been wrenchin’ in Vegas since 1998, he creates a custom bike for a disabled man.

VIDEO AND OTHER interesting stuff (and we’re not talking about messed-up frescos) of Prince Harry’s infamous Las Vegas adventures are being sold to the highest bidder. The owner of said material believes she has hit the proverbial Sin City jackpot and is shopping the royal goods for a million bucks. Some call her a capitalist while others hail she’s a cheap you-know-what … One thing is certain, at a million bucks, there’s nothing cheap about her …

TABLOIDS ARE REPORTING that the Wynn Las Vegas comped His Nakedness’s $80,000 tab … Like any good host, the hotel says it does not comment on its guests. What’s the difference between a royal romp and a regular romp? … About $79,200.

BY THE TIME this is over, the only sins the youngest son of Charles and Diana will not have been guilty of is greed, pride and envy … And the jury is still out on the last two.

THE WINNER OF the Kimo’s Vegas funniest late-night monologue one-liner is Jay Leno’s, “Not all rulers are 12 inches.”

SPEAKIN’ OF out-of-control Las Vegas parties … “The World’s Largest Bachelorette Party” is happening Sept. 21-23 at TAO and LAVO in The Venetian and Palazzo. Festivities include performances by the Chippendales, Stripper 101 pole-dancing classes and a shot at the world record for the largest arms-linked Champagne toast.

HIT UP YOUR casino host for tickets to the sold-out second annual iHeartRadio Music Festival Sept. 21 and 22 at the MGM Grand … On stage, everyone from Aerosmith to Taylor Swift.

THEY FOUND SOME mosquitoes with the West Nile virus in Las Vegas — good reason to get the flu shot before you go, or even if you’re not goin’ Vegas.
