Matthew Tungate aka Chico is an American reality star, recognized for his appearance on the Discovery reality show, Moonshiners.

Born on January 06, 1985, he worked as a delivery boy before he met veteran moonshiner, Tim Smith.

Under financial stress, he joined the show during the 3rd season in the Appalachian Mountains.

Combined with his classic humor, blazing red hair, and oddly shaped teeth, he quickly caught the attention of the show’s audience. 

After the introduction of his wife, Sondra Thompson, on the show, the pair is often seen working together.

The couple who hails from Gravel Switch, Kentucky, shares two children: a daughter, Alena, and son, Waylon.

Back in 2015, he was arrested for driving under the influence in Knott County after he allegedly drove his vehicle into a crowd.

Although he didn’t get any time behind bars, he was asked to show up in court and was fined accordingly.

Chico raises and races traditional Kentucky Trotter Horses when he isn’t busy brewing moonshine.

With all his dedication he has shown for years, Chico has collected an impressive net worth of $400K million.
