The “Pawns Stars” personalities are often recognized because of the show’s success. They’ve been able to meet some really interesting people along the way – both celebrities and regular people. Recently, the hilarious Chumlee reflected on a time he met Kristen Bell during an appearance with Jay Leno.
In an Instagram post, Chumlee reminisced on the moment he and Kristen Bell were comparing shoes with a hilarious caption.
“When @kristenanniebell had to flex on my shoe game but @jaylenosgarage wasn’t so sure about it!” the star captioned the post.
The two celebrities look like they’re having a good time as Chumlee leans in close to Bell for the comparison. We’ll wait and see if Kristen Bell responds to the “Pawn Stars” star.
Chumlee is often a humorous part of the “Pawn Stars” team. He’s known for joking with customers, and even slightly teasing them when they bring in strange items or odd antiques. However, his comedic approach has drawn many fans to his personality on the show.
“Pawn Stars” Have to Be Careful of Purchases
Pawnbrokers have really tough jobs sometimes. They have to be extremely careful about what they buy. Additionally, they have to make sure their purchases are authentic. This issue doesn’t happen too often, however, it can make the business lose money.
No one understands this better than Rick Harrison, who’s been in the game for more than 30 years. His son, Corey, on the other hand, had to learn that lesson the hard way.
“You know, you just live and learn. That’s kinda how it works. You don’t have a pawn broker school where they teach you that. It’s all trial and error. As many big scores that I’ve gotten, I’ve been burned a lot, too,” Corey told When in Manila in 2017.
The “Pawn Stars” star has lost his fair share of money over the years by buying items that were inauthentic. But he shouldn’t feel too bad. Even with Harrison’s experience, he’s been known to make mistakes from time to time.
“Fifteen years ago, someone spent probably three- or four thousand dollars to make a fake Rolex. And I got burned on that one, so it won’t happen again. Someone bought a 1970s Rolex — a really beat-up one, for $700 or $800. They take the movement out. They got a new Rolex face for it. New Rolex hands. New crystal. Made an 18-karat gold case and band for it. And they were in the watch probably $3- to $4,000. I ended up buying it for $5,000. It’s an entire industry, making fake things,” Harrison told NPR in 2011.
