on the tv show "pawn stars" how is chum lee associated with boss and every one else?

Pawn Star's Chumlee, nicknamed after a cartoon walrus, is Corey's (the Big Boss) devoted childhood friend. He is just like a son to Rick and he's been around the shop since he was a young boy.

Audiences tend to see Austin Chumlee Russell as a pinball-loving slacker, but in reality he is an extremely hard worker and he takes his charitable work seriously. Chumlee has helped the Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas raise funds, as well as donated skateboards to toy drives. He has been very active with cancer charities and even got his head shaved at a head-shaving marathon to benefit a children’s cancer charity!

It was recently reported that Chumlee gets $25,000 per episode for Pawn Stars, which has been renewed for 80 more episodes! See all new episodes on Mondays at 10/9c on the History Channel.
