One of the joys of watching Pawn Stars and Storage Wars is knowing you won’t be seeing any of Lena Dunham’s lady parts or her dirty but depressing Sunday night sex scenes.
“Treasure Hunt TV” is a parade of “What’s It worth” pawn shop walk-ins and sometimes serendipitous storage locker finds. The genre has spawned three big breakout stars: Austin “Chumlee” Russell, Barry Weiss, and Morris “Moe” Prigoff. Two of the guys came on the scene already rich, while Chumlee is a high school dropout.
Russel is the “smarter than he acts” sidekick and best-friend archetype who evokes Jughead from Archie’s comic world or any slacker ever played by Jack Black in a film. His deadpan wit and authentic feel for popular Dude culture and street art (He’s a big fan of Bansky) have earned him a big fan following and the money to support a serious sneaker habit.
collector, he usually keeps his best finds for himself and owns some the wildest rides in L.A. The sale of the big fruit and veggie business he owned with his brother gives him the resources to forage for fun, not for survival.
