Todd Chrisley is the star of Chrisley Knows Best. Of course the show is about the whole Chrisley family, but it's no coincidence that the title is a nod to the TV show Father Knows Best (which aired from1954 to 1963). As the family patriarch, Todd rules with a golden fist, offers fatherly advice in the form of clever jibes, and believes he he has all the answers.

Born in Georgia and raised in Westminster, South Carolina, Todd has been married to his wife Julie for almost 18 years and they've raised their five children in Atlanta suburbs.

The successful entrepreneur earned (and, according to an outstanding bankruptcy case), lost millions in real estate and other ventures. Still, he is reportedly worth between $4-5 million today and clearly believes he owes that to his micromanaging involvement.

So it is probably no surprise that he deals with his family much the same way. He calls himself a “patriarch of perfection,” and is a brutally honest proponent of "tough love" parenting who tries to control every move his family makes and every dollar they spend. 

To demonstrate his omnipotence, Todd frequently tells his kids, "I've already been there, done that, and got the tee-shirt.”

Julie Chrisley is Todd's wife, business partner and best friend. She is also Todd's counterweight in the Chrisley family dynamics: her calm temperament balances out his fiery personality and her warmth as a "super mom" balances his tough love approach. She's also strong willed enough to stand up to Todd's micromanagement (especially when it comes to spending money). Plus, according to Todd's bankruptcy lawyer, Julie has her own money and once loaned Todd four million dollars for a business venture. 

The daughter of a Baptist preacher, Julie is a former Miss South Carolina (no, not that geographically-impaired contestant) and a breast cancer survivor who has a deep appreciation for life and tries to teach her family not to sweat the small stuff.

Savannah Chrisley is Todd and Julie Chrisley's 16-year-old daughter.

Although Savannah wouldn't be caught dead without her make-up and heels, there's more to the pageant queen than dreams of one day being crowned Miss Georgia. She also plans to become a pediatric oncologist treating children with cancer. 

In the Chrisley family dynamics, Savannah and her older brother Chase are as thick as thieves, getting into trouble together, covering for one another and having each other's backs when dealing with dad.

Chase Chrisley is Todd and Julie's 17-year-old son. He may be a mini-me version of Todd who gloats about being "the favorite" child, but Chase also likes to match wits with Todd, hoping to get one over on the old man. That usually just keeps Chase under Todd’s watchful eye--which is probably the point: whether he's shadowing dad or matching wits with him, Chase stays the focus of Todd's attention. 

As a high school jock with good looks and his very own brand new Range Rover, Chase is never at a loss for potential dates.

Lindsie Chrisley is Todd and Julie's eldest daughter. Now 24-years-old, Lindsie shocked her parents when she decided to elope. Five months later they were stunned to learn she was pregnant with their first grandchild. Todd still doesn't like Lindsie's husband, Will, and they frequently argue about how she's parenting her son, Jackson.

Kyle Chrisley is Todd and Julie's eldest son. In keeping with Todd's tough love parenting style, the Chrisley parents shipped Kyle off to Samoa after he was caught having an affair with a married woman. While he was away, Kyle finished school and worked with the Red Cross. Now the 23-year-old is back (sort of). He's living with Todd's mother, Faye and trying to figure out what to do with his life.

Grayson Chrisley of 'Chrisley Knows Best'

Grayson Chrisley is the youngest child of Todd and Julie, in fact, he's almost young enough to be their grandson. At seven-years-old, Grayson is only six years older than his nephew, (Lindsie's son) Jackson. The baby of the family is also the most spoiled: he got his first iPhone at age four and has graduated to stealing his mom’s credit card to buy what ever he wants. Fortunately for Grayson, he's cute and charming enough to get away with it. Although he will probably develop far more noxious habits as he gets older, currently his greatest vice is demanding to watching television while in his bath.
