This season on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Way Thore‘s falling for her hunky new boyfriend Chase Severino. And, if you follow her on social, you know Chase proposed to Whitney in Paris last year. But, who’s this guy that won Whitney’s heart and how does he fit into her life and plans for her future? Here’s some tidbits about Chase Severino.
Who is Chase Severino and How Did He Meet Whitney Thore – My Big Fat Fabulous Life
Whitney Thore met Chase Severino through mutual friend Ryan Andreas. He’s 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 really we’re meeting on 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 his degree is in Accounting and Finance and he’s got a very buttoned-up past.
You can see in the photo below his before and after. When we meet Chase first getting with Whitney Thore on My Big Fat Fabulous Life that he’s long-haired and hippy-looking. But before that, he was clean-shaven, with a short haircut and an auditor job at the NC revenue department.

But you can see above that Chase looked totally different before. Now, we’re seeing lots 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 into hospitality.
