Austin Lee Russell- Professional Career

He began working in the business and lasted for five years before getting cast on the show “Pawn Stars.”

“Pawn Stars” debuted in 2009, covering the operations of Harrison’s pawn shop in Las Vegas, Nevada, a 24-hour family company. The show immediately became a fan favorite and the highest-rated show on the History Channel. In each episode, the crew engages with customers who bring in a range of antiques and relics to sell or pawn. There is frequently some bartering, and the audience is also given some historical information. There are also some interpersonal disputes among the members of the shop’s actors in the program.

Experts also make an appearance to help assess and determine the value of goods. Some of these specialists went on to star in spin-off shows including “American Restoration” and “Counting Cars.” Chumlee, as he is referred to multiple times in the episode, is frequently presented as the village fool and comedy. Despite these designations, he is a pinball machine specialist and the series’ standout character.

Loss of Weight

After his father died of pancreatic cancer, Chumlee became very careful about his lifestyle and food. He shed 34 kg in a year in 2013, which he attributed to a healthy diet and six times a week of gym training. He changed his diet to include more juice, less red meat, and more veggies. Because of his weight loss, he is now allowed to ride a hovercraft that he acquired early in the series but was unable to ride due to its weight restriction of 110 kilograms.
