by Joe Rutland

“Pawn Stars” has quite an array of characters in their pawn shop located in Las Vegas, but there’s little doubt one has a special talent.

Who would that be? Chumlee! OK, Outsiders, so let’s dig into this part of the show thanks to an article from Looper.

His real name is Austin Lee Russell, but everyone calls him Chumlee.

So, what is this talent he has outside of the pawn shop? The dude can spin some records.

He’s a DJ! Yep, in 2015, The Los Angeles Times had a story about Chumlee taking some classes to learn about being a DJ.

‘Pawn Stars’ Favorite Got His First Gig in Side Hustle at Las Vegas Nightclub

Chumlee was confident that he could do the job. His publicist said that he was nervous about the “Pawn Stars” employee going out there.

So, Chumlee the DJ went out to a place in Las Vegas called Ghostbar Dayclub.

Reports indicate he did really good, and even had “Pawn Stars” co-stars Rick and Corey Harrison come out.

What did he want after spinning the albums? Nerf basketball hoops, Nerf guns, and Girl Scout cookies.

Sounds like a solid want after one long night for Chumlee the DJ.

When He’s Not Out Spinning Records, Chumlee Can Also Be Found Admiring Weight Loss

Outsiders, anyone who has tuned into “Pawn Stars” over the years knows that Chumlee has been a hefty kind of guy.

But that’s all changing since he is losing weight.

Chumlee is down 150 pounds. He shared before-and-after photos on his Facebook page.

Both of them were from the red-carpet experiences that he went through.

In the after photo, Chumlee is wearing a trendy, wide-brimmed hat and full beard.

“Can you believe it, I’ve lost over 150lbs !! How many people out there have always struggled with your weight like I did?” Chumlee wrote on his picture post.

Watching Corey Harrison Go Through Weight Transformation Inspired Co-Star

What really led Chumlee to change things around? Corey Harrison.

That’s right, his “Pawn Stars” co-star.

Harrison went under a transformation himself.

Corey talked with People and eliminated all processed foods from his diet. He chose to have gastric bypass surgery and it all led to Harrison losing 192 pounds.

Harrison said, “I could never go back to weighing as much as I did. It made me realize what I ate, how I ate, and what I did to myself. It was a WOW moment.”

Chumlee also eliminated processed foods and added a new motto

“It was time for me to get healthy,” he said, “When I first began, I eliminated all processed foods except mustard. Now ‘everything in moderation’ is my motto.”
