Chumlee Bio – 2018 Update

Austin Russell aka Chumlee became good friends with Corey Harrison aka “Big Hoss” as a young boy. Having often spent time at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop together even as children, he eventually began working for the store in 2003. By the time Pawn Stars had premiered on the History Channel, he had already worked there for a handful of years. One of the main cast members, his duties have been depicted to include loading items, testing items, and writing tickets up for purchased items. Portrayed as the comic foil, his perceived lack of intelligence is often joked about by the other staff. Despite that, he has managed to become a fan favourite show over the years.

For a while now however, Chumlee has been absent from the show. Just last year, he was charged with over a dozen felony accounts, including weapon and drug charges. In spite of his recent legal troubles, he successfully opened up a candy store called, Chumlee’s Candy on the Boulevard, which is located across the street from the pawn shop in Las Vegas. Since then, he has obviously been busy with the new business, which has led to a prolonged absence on Pawn Stars.
