Chase Chrisley is known for his appearance in the USA Network reality television series Chrisley Knows Best. The show which is originally filmed in Nashville, Tennessee, showcases with the life of Todd Chrisley, a wealthy Georgia real estate mogul and his family. Chase is regarded as the favorite character of the show. There is hardly an episode on the show that Chase is not seen creating some type of trouble. His reputation as a mischief-maker and one who is constantly trying to outsmart his father puts him under the watchful eyes of his father, Todd Chrisley. We explore his details about his wealth as well as his romantic life.
How Chase Chrisley Made His Money
Born in the home of a man who prides himself as a self-made millionaire thanks to his real estate investments, Chase Chrisley had quite a privileged upbringing. At the time when he was born on the 1st of June 1996, his father Todd was pretty much comfortable, thus Chase grew up with the finest things of life at his beck and call. His father Todd reportedly made money through his asset management company which profited off liquidating properties. Todd’s company would buy houses facing foreclosure and sell them for profit.
Despite his father’s huge success in real estate, Chase grew up wanting to be something else – a professional athlete. He loved and played baseball as a kid and wanted to become a professional athlete. However, as he grew, his interests changed and Chase Chrisley would come to develop an interest in the entertainment industry. By 2012, he began making TV appearances – first, in two episodes of the Steve Harvey show. In 2013, he also appeared on The Real. And then came 2014 when his family’s reality TV show Chrisley Knows Best premiered on the USA network.
Chrisley Knows Best would become an instant hit for the family who at the time was reportedly in huge debts. Reports had it that the proceeds from the show helped the family to keep their wealth afloat. The show which received mixed reviews had at least one million viewers tuning in to watch each episode. Chase Chrisley was aged 18 at the time the show started and thus was eligible to directly receive payment for his part in the show – even though it is unclear just how much he was receiving. However, considering the fact that Chase and his family seem to own luxury items, one can only assume that their earning from the show is no chicken feed.
Chase Chrisley has capitalized on the success of the show to launch his podcast The Chase Christy Podcast which has so far been successful. On the 2nd of April, 2019 Chase and his sister, Savannah were given their own spin-off show titled, Growing Up Chrisley which follows their lives as grown-ups as they are determined to prove their independence to their parents. The show’s second season premiered on the 6th of August 2019. Chase Chrisley now aspires to be a Hollywood actor.
How Rich Is Chase Chrisley and How Does He Spend His Money?
All of the income sources discussed above have brought Chrisley’s net worth to an estimated $500,000, however, there are some sources that claim his net worth to be over $5 million, but with the Chrisley’s you never know. The family is known to have frequent money problems from being in huge debts to evading taxes. Chase Chrisley in early 2019 was slapped with a Federal Tax Lien of almost $17,000. By October 2019, The Blast reported that the reality TV star had paid off the 2014 tax bill which totaled $16,886.64.
Chase Chrisley is a rich kid who for the most part of his life has benefitted hugely from his father’s money. Sometime in 2016, he spent $300 to get a tattoo of a Bible verse on his chest but his strict father wasn’t having it, saying that he could not use his body as a cheat code to memorize Bible verses. His father promised to gift him a $140,000 Range Rover if he took off the tattoo, a promise he kept after his son fulfilled his own part of the bargain.
Chase Chrisley owns a dog named Lilo and even runs an Instagram account in its name. Viewers of Chisley Knows Best suspect that Chase uses dentures and veneers to achieve his perfectly arranged white teeth.
What We Know About His Sexuality
Chase’s father, Todd has long been suspected to be a gay man even before their hit reality TV show premiered. This is as a result of his exuberance and ability to effortlessly throw shades of drag-queen proportions. Todd first denied the rumors in 2014 but his constant denial has failed to put the rumors to bed. Since Chase seems to be his favorite child, many have often wondered if maybe Chase, like his father is suspected to be, could also be gay, but just like his father, Chase from all obvious indications seems to be a straight man. All his romantic relationships have been with women. He previously dated Broke Noury, Kim Zolciak’s daughter, Brielle Biermann, and Lindsey Merrick. In June 2019, he began dating Kayla Puzas.
