The music will play … if Chumlee has Girl Scout cookies? Austin “Chumlee” Russell, the star of History channel’s “Pawn Stars” is getting into the DJ business. The 32-year-old reality star will be DJing at the Ghostbar Dayclub at Palms Las Vegas on Saturday. It’s Chumlee’s first DJ gig, but according to TMZ, he’s already got some high demands.
The celebrity news site is reporting that Chumlee’s requests for DJing include “beautiful waitresses to escort him to the stage,” “a basketball suite for a pick-up game after the show” and Girl Scout cookies (Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties), among other things. While Chumlee did not comment on his contract rider demands, he did take to Twitter to promote his gig:

In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Chumlee explained that he’s exploring a career as a DJ in case “Pawn Stars” comes to an end. “I’m always looking for another line of work,” he dished. “You never know how long our show will be on (TV) for, even though I don’t think it’s ending anytime soon. So I’m preparing myself for other ventures I can get involved in.”
"Pawn Stars" debuted on History in 2009. It's the network's highest rated series.
If the DJ thing doesn’t pan out, Chumlee added that he’d “want to take pictures of bikini models.”
New episodes of “Pawn Stars” airs on the History channel on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST.
