There was a Twitter post that may surprise some of the followers of the show ‘Pawn Stars‘ on the History Channel. Recently, Chumlee posted on Ron Paul’s website. He stated that “I have no idea who this dude is nor have I ever seen the show, but he has 109,000 followers on twitter, so he must be pretty famous.” Some comments from Rep. Paul’s camp were civil, but reserved. One person made the comment that Chumlee was a young 20 something year old portraying a goofy character on the pawn shop show. Now, that raised a question, is he portraying this kind of a character or is this actually how Chumlee acts in real life?
There is nothing that I can find indicating that he is acting like a goofball, it appears as though this is who he really is off camera as well. Not to be mean-spirited here at all, but some people are very laid back and just let life happen, accepting what comes along. This is how Chumlee comes across in every situation or episode that videos his behavior and antics. It would be fascinating to meet him and see just how down-to-earth he is without cameras around. Personally, I think he would be a lot of fun to just hang out with and enjoy visiting about whatever comes up at the time.
What do you think? Is he for real… or is “Chumlee”the creation of a savvy actor?
In a more thoughtful description, Chumlee has a way of keeping every aspect of his life simple and uncomplicated. Frankly, this world would be a little better off if we would not take life so seriously, let our hair down, and just enjoy the moments we have with family and friends. Why not?
So, if Chumlee happens to be “goofy” in real life, great; more power to him! Who am I to judge his character and take umbrage to his behaviors? This is his life and he has the right to choose how he lives, which includes how he behaves at any given moment. Mr. Chumlee, I support you as a person, goofy or not, and hope that the too serious people of the world can learn from the real example you set. It is not the outward expressions that matter so much; it is the lack of stress you exhibit and the ability to let the negativity slide on by. Congratulations on your success, especially since you obtained it without hurting anyone, judging anyone, or being afraid to just be you!
So again, I ask… What do you think? Is he for real… or is “Chumlee”the creation of a savvy actor?
