His girlfriend wins the hand with one pair.

Man, that guy really does look like a pawn shop employee. And she doesn't exactly look out of his league. I bestow kudos unto both of them.

The 31-year-old, who is known for his humorous antics...

I must have missed those episodes.
 
2014-01-09 04:07:29 AM
75 pounds? Did they get lost from some place the camera can't see?
 
2014-01-09 06:53:58 AM
Reality TV has taught us that being drunk, fat, and stupid is a way to go through life.

Fans were quick to compliment Russell on his new look, with many commenting that he looks 'great'.

LMAO.  ok.
 
2014-01-09 07:18:39 AM
Well, it's a change for the better. He went from obese to merely overweight.
 
2014-01-09 07:31:03 AM
Never been as heavy as Chum, but that's a pretty substantial accomplishment.   Good for him.   It's amazing what big boobies can motivate a man to accomplish.
 
2014-01-09 07:31:52 AM
Sometimes when seriously obese people lose a bunch of weight you find out that there was a pretty good looking person underneath.

This is not one of those times.

/it's great that he lost the weight, but he needs to do some serious weight training to ditch the skinnyfat
 
2014-01-09 07:32:56 AM
Good on him

There were 7 and a half cameras pointed at him at the time.
 
2014-01-09 07:40:07 AM
Haven't watched the show, dunno who he is, but good for him. Even with someone else helping it's hard to break bad eating habits. Hopefully he'll be able to keep it going.
 
2014-01-09 07:40:34 AM
I'm glad he's losing weight, good for him, but at his size losing 75 lbs isn't hard at all. Dropping the remainder and keeping it off will prove to be the hard part.

They are store bought (not that there is anything wrong with that:)

"Chumlee and the Lebanese beauty have been dating for a while. Earlier this year, the surprisingly romantic Chum proved his love for Tanya by treating her to a fancy dinner at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse - and a boob job!

"She wanted a boob job and she was going to pay it herself but she works so hard," Chumlee told Las Vegas Review in September. "I thought to myself, it literally takes me a couple hours of work to buy a boob job so why would I make her pay for them. She had her money saved up and I just felt it was the right thing to do. That's a good birthday present, right?"
 
2014-01-09 07:44:29 AM
Still ugly, though.
 
2014-01-09 07:54:28 AM
did he inject all that fat into her boobs?

That's kind of like buying your wife lingerie, the present is more for you than her.

There was an article I saw recently that was almost arguing against losing weight because of the excess skin that occurs after. If you dig deeper you find out the author pretty much did a crash diet and a lot of cardio, no weight lifting at all. Of course the weight loss was rapid and she was left with all kinds of loose skin.

That's what happens when you try and lose all that weight in a short amount of time. If you take your time, eat healthy with a healthy amount of calories and lift freaking weights you can minimize all of that.

She looks about as real as a blowup doll in this picture...

Does he even lift?

Depending on how fat you were your skin might not stretch back no matter what.  I have a feeling even with weight lifting Chumlee's stomach would not do so well.
 
2014-01-09 08:46:14 AM
I like how Corey took the easy way out with lap band. That can go nasty-bad if you don't have the mindset. Seems like, between the two of them, Chum will be thinner longer.

Which is something I never thought I'd say.
 
2014-01-09 08:53:11 AM
I really used to enjoy the show and seeing the strange things people would sell and why "You know, it's worth $50 grand, but I've got to take it to auction, and risk not selling it at full price, and then make a profit, I'll give $300 for it"

"Make it $325 and you've got a deal"


Now the shows just blows. At least half the show is dedicated to some phoney back story "Cory just boght a crappy house, how can ever afford it?"  "Hoss may just up and quit becasue the store down the street will pay him more!" "The old man is a cynical!".
 
2014-01-09 08:53:30 AM
Her.... and him ... that makes sense.

You leave Honey Boo Boo alone!

Also, she's not zaftig, but she's also not slender.

Now all he has to lose is all those dumbass tats.

Dang. Either that pawn shop is really overpaying him, or A&E pays a shiatload of money to them, or his girlfriend is going to show up in a future Fark story where it turns out she got one of those cut-rate ghetto surgery deals where they inject you with silicone caulk from Home Depot.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: A&E pays a shiatload of money to them


They probably pay him tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars per episode.  That seems to be the going rate  for "unscripted" shows.

Celebrity net worth says he get's paid 25K per episode, and has a total net worth of $5m. I actually thought it would be a lot  higher as PS is I remember hearing PS is the number 1 show in South America and hoistory channels most popular show. Chum lee is also the show's favorite, selling more chum less merchandise than all the others.
 
2014-01-09 09:08:38 AM
So a reality show celebrity behaves in a way others would benefit from emulating? A new paradigm indeed!

He is behind all of the merchandising of their images which has been very profitable.  From what I understand, he gets a cut of everything sold with the store's or the other character's image.  He may even get a cut of their endorsements.  The others didn't think it would be profitable and basically handed it over to him.

Pawn Stars is one of the top rated cable shows; American Restoration, American Pickers, and Counting cars are all also doing pretty well. As a result History channel has seen a huge jump in people watching and is now something like the fourth most viewed cable channel in prime time. So yeah...I could see the pawn guys making a pretty penny from just their tv deal.

But good for chum. So long as the weight is lost in a healthy way I say more power to him.

The 31-year-old, who is known for his humorous antics being the butt of all of the jokes on the hit TV series Pawn Stars

FTFY

My brother in law, for some reason, has only basic cable, and seems to play a lot of reality TV. He doesn't really watch it, as much as put it on in the background, and then stare at it(Although acoustics in the house are so crappy that you can't actually hear the TV). Anyway, he was playing Pawn Stars while we were down there for Xmas, and we noticed Chum was skinnier even on episodes from last fall, so I don't know about this "debuted at New Year's" crap. Seriously, though, this guy is obviously just playing at being the slack jawed yokel. Every once in awhile, he forgets and drops the mouth breather facade, and he lets on that he's nowhere near as stupid as he appears on the show. He'd better be getting paid a lot to forever be branded a total moron. I'm not saying that this is Carl Sagan, or Albert Einstein, but he's definitely not the bill of goods the show is presenting.
 
2014-01-09 09:28:12 AM
Wow, he went form being morbidly obese and ugly to just fat and ugly.

/I misread Lebanese
 
2014-01-09 09:28:45 AM
He still looks constantly stoned.
 
2014-01-09 09:35:10 AM
Pawn Stars, the show, has been such a groan-fest lately and Chublee is so undeserving of any attention, especially from the Daily Fail rag.
 
2014-01-09 09:40:30 AM
So did he use the fat from his moobs to help out his girlfriends implants?
 
2014-01-09 09:52:38 AM
Well, good for him.
 
2014-01-09 09:55:14 AM
Not so fat, dumb, and  rich and having a girlfriend with huge knockers is no way to go throu--wai t what the fark am I saying??!?!?!

so you BIL doesn't watch the show but he watches the show
 
2014-01-09 10:00:33 AM
or your BIL
 
2014-01-09 10:05:41 AM
Bet he still only got five dollars for it.

TheraTx: so you BIL doesn't watch the show but he watches the show


Hell, I watch the show. I enjoy it. Except for the added manufactured drama, that shiat I can't stand. But seriously, he puts this stuff on, and doesn't turn it up loud enough to hear. It's an exercise in lip reading, the acoustics are so farked up in that house that you can hear the TV better in the kitchen and down the hall into the bedrooms than you can directly in front of the TV in the living room. he really does seem to just run those shows in the background, it's kinda weird.
 
2014-01-09 10:11:37 AM
They'll probably  be selling vials of his fat at the stop next week
