Chumlee – real name Austin Lee Russell – was born in Henderson, Nevada, on September 8, 1982. He acquired his nickname around the age of 12, when a friend’s father remarked that he resembled the walrus Chumley from the TV cartoon Tennessee Tuxedo. The name stuck, and has since become known around the world.
