Chumlee Net Worth is $5 Million
Austin “Chumlee” Russell is another star from the hit reality television series Pawn Stars that first aired in America on the History Channel in 2009. This show has been the major contributor in promoting the Gold and Silver Pawn store owner’s net worth. Austin Russell just happens to be one of the most popular leading figures of the store through television. He gets his name from the Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon character ‘Chumley’. He became a part of Gold and Silver pawn store because of his childhood friendship with fellow star Corey Harrison, whose father Rick Harrison and Grandfather Richard Harrison were the original owners of the store since 1989. Because of the immense popularity that the show gained worldwide the net worth of Austin grew exponentially and he is currently valued at $5 million. This value is more than his partner Corey and the fees that the channel pays to him for every episode of Pawn Stars.
The popularity of the show all over the world and various spin-offs has made him a household celebrity which makes him a public figure and any exposure to international television causes the net worth of the individual to increase exponentially which has been the case with Austin as well and he has become a millionaire in his own right. His negotiation skills have been immense for the pawn store because he is known for being able to buy expensive things at a really affordable price and then making a good profit for the shop. The store manager of the most popular show on History Channel has a good collection of expensive cars, ranging from the rare 1964 Chevrolet Impala, Maserati, Rolls-Royce Phantom and Range Rover among others, all of which add to his net worth. He has been working at the pawn shop since he was 21 and it has seriously paid off.
