Savannah Chrisley is best known as a charismatic reality TV star who has leveraged her fame into a successful lifestyle empire. As the firstborn child of outspoken real estate mogul Todd Chrisley, she initially garnered attention on the popular reality series Chrisley Knows Best. But the vivacious 26-year-old has since expanded her brand beyond just reality television into the worlds of fashion, beauty, influencer marketing and more.

Early Life and Family

Born on August 11, 1997 in Atlanta, Georgia, Savannah Faith Chrisley is the daughter of Todd and Julie Chrisley. She has two younger brothers – Chase and Grayson. During her elementary school years, the family relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where Savannah first began participating in cheerleading competitions and beauty pageants, passions she continued throughout her youth.

According to Todd Chrisley, Savannah was always a bubbly and outgoing child. However, her mother Julie has said that Savannah could also be strong-willed at times. “She’s had her rebellious moments, but overall she has a heart of gold,” Julie told People magazine.

The Chrisleys raised Savannah and her siblings to be devout Southern Baptists, leading the family in nightly prayer and teaching Christian values. Savannah remains passionate about her faith today.

Rise to Fame on Chrisley Knows Best

Chrisley Knows Best first premiered on USA Network in 2014. The show depicted the over-the-top lifestyle of Todd Chrisley and his picture-perfect Southern family. Savannah‘s quick wit and sly sarcastic one-liners made her a fan favorite.

According to Savannah, she was initially hesitant about doing a reality show. But Todd Chrisley had a vision for bringing their wild family dynamics to television. “My dad has always been eccentric and larger than life. He wanted to showcase the crazy that is Chrisley family!” Savannah told E! News.

Now in its 9th season, Chrisley Knows Best has become one of USA Network‘s most popular shows with millions of loyal viewers. Savannah‘s fame has skyrocketed, helping expand her brand well beyond just reality television.

Legal Troubles and Controversies

Chrisley Knows Best nearly came to an end in 2019 when Todd and Julie Chrisley were indicted for tax evasion and other federal charges. If convicted, they face up to 30 years in prison.

The Chrisleys deny any wrongdoing, claiming a disgruntled former employee committed the crimes. While the case works its way through the legal system, USA Network plans to move forward with season 9 airing in 2022.

The controversy has caused stress for Savannah and her family. “It‘s been a challenging time but we have a lot of faith that the truth will prevail,” she told E! News.
