Throughout its many seasons on the air, Swamp People has plunged us into a strange world where alligator hunting is the only means of attaining significant material wealth. At the center of the show is the Landry family, whose male members all made successful careers as hunters. Troy, Jacob, and Chase Landry possess incredible technical skills, but it's their unexpected mishaps, gaffes, and bizarre slip-ups that keep viewers coming back for more.
But who is Chase as an individual? Keep reading to find out all the known details of his personal life, as well as his position within the cast of Swamp People.
Is Chase Landry married? His love life has always been pretty private.
Chase and his girlfriend of several years Chelsea Kinsey reportedly were married sometime in 2020, but there aren't any available details regarding their ceremony. The star has notoriously kept his private life exactly that: private.
Nonetheless, speculation has emerged that he and Chelsea split up, and new reports confirmed that he has taken up with Cheyenne Wheat (aka "Pickle Wheat"). This is also confirmed by her relationship status on Facebook, which reads "In a Relationship with Chase Landry" as of Oct. 25, 2020.
Cheyenne seems to share an equal and unbridled love for the outdoors with Chase, and her constant social media posts confirm that. The couple enjoys hunting, fishing, and general nature-related activities.
Chase Landry has been a core cast member of 'Swamp People' since the show's very beginning.
Chase Landry is one of the most knowledgeable alligator hunters to have ever appeared on mainstream television. Born into a family of French Canadian refugees, he was raised by a community of men deeply passionate about alligator hunting.
Just like the rest of his family, Chase is unceasingly enthusiastic about gator hunting. While this allowed him to earn some mind-blowing life experiences — alongside the ability to forge even closer bonds with his old man, Troy — it also got him into some trouble in the past.
According to Pop Culture, the devoted gator hunter got himself into a good bit of legal trouble on at least one occasion. As the outlet revealed at the time, Chase attempted to attack a shrimp boat that was approaching his vessel at a rapid speed. Too overwhelmed by fear, the 31-year-old decided to open fire and shoot at the fast-nearing boat. Unfortunately, he hit the target straight away.
The foolish accident escalated into a legal conflict. Chase's trial was initially set to begin on Dec. 7, 2017. However, the hunting enthusiast failed to show up to the court case — which only led to further legal complications. Eventually, the Louisiana police had to issue an arrest warrant. The conflict was swept under the rug relatively swiftly.
The incident didn't taint Chase's reputation. In fact, he still enjoys a great deal of popularity among the viewers of Swamp People.
"Is Chase Landry single though? #SwampPeople I'll go to Louisiana right now!" wrote one person on Twitter.
"honestly i wish y’all had someone who brought you as much happiness as chase landry brings me. you don’t like it? unfollow. block. idec," tweeted another.
So, how much is Chase Landry's net worth?
In accordance with the family tradition, Chase spends every September on the Belle River — the river flowing through Pierre Part, La. — in search of the next big gator. However, unlike most of his family members, Chase has alternative sources of income as well. He reportedly used some of his income to start a casual eatery, aptly named Chasin' Tails. He also owns a gas station.
Chase reportedly earns around $3000 per episode of Swamp People, and we have a rough idea of how much the alligator hunters on the show make. However, there are some disputes about how much his net worth could entail. Various outlets report Chase's net worth as being somewhere between $200,000 and $400,000.
