Austin Chumlee Russell Biography

Austin Le Russell was born on 8 September 1982, in Las Vegas, Nevada USA, and known as Chumlee – the nickname given him by his father because of his resemblance to the walrus from the animation series ‘Tennessee Tuxedo’ – is an actor, reality TV personality, and businessman, probably best known for his appearances on the show ‘Pawn Stars’ which is broadcast on the History Channel.

So just how rich is Austin Chumlee? According to authoritative sources, Austin has an estimated net worth of $5 million as of late-2017, accumulated during a career which really began in 2003, and particularly from ‘Pawn Stars’ as it is reported that Austin receives more than $25,000 for every episode of the reality television series, which steadily increases Austin’s wealth.

Corey Harrison and Austin Russell were good friends and classmates, and as children spent plenty of time in the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop which was established by Harrison’s father Rick and grandfather  Richard “Old Man” Harrison in 1989. In 2003 Chumlee began his career and the accumulation of his net worth by working in the Pawn Shop, and so became a part of the reality TV show ‘Pawn Stars’ when it debuted in 2009, and which shows the routine of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. In the television series Austin appears as a silly person usually making jokes out of his unintelligence, and is often called ‘village idiot’. Despite this, he has his own sphere of interest, and is an expert on vintage pinball machines amongst other artifacts. The show is very popular with the television audience, as every episode of ‘Pawn Stars’ brings about $3 million income to the History Channel, thus also increasing Austin Chumlee’s and other members of the show’s net worth. Up to date, it has been broadcast for more than 300 episodes, and is still very popular.

Probably due to this popularity, Austin increased his net worth even more by opening his own company which sells various items related to the show, usually designed by Chumlee himself. Despite the fact that Chumlee acts out a fool’s role, items related to his character are the most popular in the store. Later, half of the company was sold to his colleague Rick Harrison.

Austin Chumlee then added to his net worth appearing in the episode iCarly in the television series ‘iLost My Head in Vegas’, in which he showed up with his colleagues Rick and Corey Harrison.

In his sometimes less-than-private personal life, Chumlee is in a long term relationship with Las Vegas casino chef Tany Hyjazi – he was proud to admit buying breast enhancement surgery for her as a birthday present. He has more than 150 pairs of shoes and he considers himself to be a shoes collector. Chumlee owns several vintage cars too, including a Range Rover, Buick Regal, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Maserati GranTurismo, Cadillac Escalade and Impala SS. He is fond of skateboarding and listening to rap and punk rock music. Austin likes playing video games and watching the TV series’ “Breaking Bad”, “Boardwalk Empire” and “Sons of Anarchy”. Recently, Austin has recently lost a lot of weight, more than 75 pounds, changing his diet and exercising. A huge weight loss is considered to be the reason for his death hoax on the internet.
