Pawn Stars has launched to the top of reality television ratings, and for a while, was the second most viewed reality television show, right behind Jersey Shore. If you're familiar with the show, you'll know that Chum Lee is a lovable man - he just happens to do a lot of incredibly stupid things.
Perhaps the dumbest thing he's ever done, wasn't actually caught on camera. A man pawned his upright bass for $700, and Chum Lee leaned the bass against a shelf in the back room. The bass fell over, shattering into pieces, and Chum Lee had to tell the man the awkward news when he came to pick up his bass at a later date. The $700 bass ended up costing the store $20,000 to repair. But the question remains, why?
Well, as it turns out, the bass was worth a lot more than $700, as it was actually incredibly rare. The store lost about $20,000 trying to repair an antique, collectible item. Hopefully Chum Lee learned his lesson, but, chances are he didn't.
