On Pawn Stars, Chumlee is the lovable screwup. But in real life, the reality star is living better than ever.
The star of the hit History Channel show about a high-end pawn shop in Las Vegas, real name Austin Russell, has been showing off his new girlfriend, Tanya Hyjazi. Chumlee landed a job at the store--and on the show--thanks to his longtime best friend Corey Harrison, whose dad Adam owns the shop.
"Chum" is reportedly smitten with the gorgeous brunette and even organized a birthday party for her at a hip Vegas hostspot--and paid for her to get a boob job!
Lebanese-American Tanya works as a chef at a Vegas casino. Starcasm reports that Tanya has been putting her culinary skills to good use by helping her boyfriend lose weight--he has reportedly dropped nearly 90 pounds this year, which he has been documenting on social media.
And although she hasn't yet become a character on Pawn Stars, she did make a brief appearance on camera in a recent episode when Chumlee bought his first home and invited everybody over for a housewarming party. Does this mean we'll be seeing more of her in the future?
