This season on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Way Thore’s falls for her hungry new boyfriend Chase Severino. And, if you follow her socially, you’ll know that Chase proposed to Whitney in Paris last year. But, who is this guy who won Whitney’s heart and how does he fit into her life and plans for her future? Here’s some things about Chase Severino.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Who is Chase and How Did He Meet Whitney
Whitney Thore met Chase Severino through mutual friend Ryan Andreas. He is her partner in the NoBS Active, their subscription-based fitness program. And Ryan went to college with Chase Severino at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. So, Ryan introduced Whitney and Chase.
But who’s this guy we’re really meeting in My Big Fat Fabulous Life? First of all, his name’s not really Chase. His real name is Casey Patrick Severino and he’s 29 years old. What’s also interesting is that he has a degree in Accounting and Finance and he has a very buttoned-up past.
You can see his before and after on the picture below. When we meet Chase for the first time with Whitney Thore on My Big Fat Fabulous Life, we see that he is long-haired and hippie-like. But before that he was clean-shaven, with a short haircut and a job as an accountant at the NC income department.

But you can see upstairs that Chase looked very different before. Now we see a lot more in Season 7 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life as Chase Severino romances Whitney Way Thore. According to his LinkedIn, he left the accounting field and moved to the hospitality industry.
