    He's in the second "chapter" of the Dark Carnival campaign. Once you get into the actual carnival, on the right hand side there will be a "Peanut Gallery". Score 750 points or more (having teammates help is a plus), and a prize box will open on the left hand side, revealing Chompski. Carry him all the way to the end of the campaign and the achievement is yours.

    Note: Once the campaign is finished with the gnome in the chopper, everyone gets the achievement. So you don't have to worry about doing this over and over again for each person.

    xQu33nEmblaYou can also get this achievement easily by playing the mutation "Last Gnome On Earth". I just loaded up Dark Carnival-Chapter 5: Concert, and just picked up the Gnome lying on the ground in the safe room. I kept it with me at all times and made sure I was still holding it while I was in the helicoter. Achievement unlocked!

    QFingersNote that if you use the LT melee attack while holding the gnome, this is OK when going for "Confederacy of Crunches" achivement too.

    Shadow XBLQu33n's solution is the best. Very fast. Just stick yourself in a corner on the stage and the AI on Easy pretty much does everything for you.

    To make it easier on the roller coaster part of the campaign, throw the gnome over the fence directly to the right of the switch that starts the ride. It makes it a hell of a lot easier to make it past the first half without having to worry about losing him if you get knocked over by any special infected. Plus, he'll land past the section you can't climb back up, thus eliminating that problem.

    NGHelenKeller12Thank you! I would also like to add that the place it lands is where there is an ammo refill right beside the track, so you shouldn't miss the gnome you threw.
