Chumlee On Pawn Stars Makes 25K Per Episode - Drives A Maserati

It's Friday and this falls into the "this will piss you off category."

I like Pawn Stars because I think it's informative and I like the history lessons.

But I did some research and I found that fat **** Austin "Chumlee" Russell on Pawn Stars makes 25 grand per episode and he drives a freaking Maserati.

If you think any of these "reality" shows are real think again.

Pawn Stars is about as scripted as it can be. In fact Gold & Silver Pawn is hardly a pawn shop anymore but more of a gift shop selling coffee mugs and t-shirts.

You can tell it's all staged because no one is in the shop when they are shooting, it's always empty.

I know this good looking lady down here in Houston who owns a pawn shop and asked her if anyone has ever approached her about doing a show like this.

She said yes but they wanted to tell her who would play what character/personality. The shows producers decide who plays what.

I asked how does Pawn Stars get all that crazy stuff to walk through the door and she said they place ads in the local papers looking for people to bring in weird stuff for the show. So I guess they're all actors.

Chumlee plays a dumbass and plays it well but dude is worth almost a million dollars because of this show.

Man.

"Austin Chumlee Russell is an American reality television star with a net worth of $600 thousand and a salary per episode $25,000. Austin Chumlee Russell acquired that net worth as a cast member of the History Channel reality show Pawn Stars. He works behind the counter of the pawnshop and has a special interest in pinball machines. The show follows the goings-on at the Las Vegas based 24-hour Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. Austin famously was able to talk a local Maserati shop into selling him a $100,000 car for only $85,000 proving his skills as a haggler. Chumlee got the job because he is Corey Harrison's childhood best friend."

Good for him. I really don't give a rats ass what he (or anyone else) makes, all I care about is how much I make.

It would really suck to make 25k a week. I don't know if I could make ends meet.

Hes truly living beyond his means driving a car like that. He will most likely end up regretting it in the long run.

plus not sure what kind of a deal he has worked out but once the show goes into syndication residuals are involved.

That's where the real money is.
