How Much
Money Chumlee
Makes From
Pawn Stars
The average pawn shop manager makes roughly $40,000 annually, but the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, the home for the hit reality series "Pawn Stars," is anything but average. Given the popularity of “Pawn Stars,” it should be no surprise that they make more than that, Chumlee alone makes just about that by filming a single episode.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Chumlee brings in $25,000 for each episode of "Pawn Stars," giving him a current net worth of roughly $5 million. With those kinds of paychecks, Chumlee has been able to live luxuriously in Las Vegas, far beyond the means of your average pawn shop worker.
In 2019, Chumlee sold his house located just off of the Vegas Strip to the tune of $1.38 million after it had spent two years on the market with an original asking price of $1.8 million. Thanks to his success, Chumlee has been able to open his own candy shop in downtown Las Vegas appropriately called Chumlee's Candy on the Boulevard.
