What is Chelsea Meissner up to now that she’s done with reality television?

Chelsea hasn’t returned to Southern Charm or Survivor, but she did return to reality TV in a small way during the spring of 2022. She appeared in an episode of Why the Heck Did I Buy This House? on HGTV.

During her episode of the show, she allowed fellow Survivor alum Kim Spradlin-Wolfe to renovate her home in a big way. In terms of social media, Chelsea is extremely active on Instagram. She shares content with over 711,000 followers, but she generally doesn’t post anything too personal.

Chelsea keeps her posts very vague focusing on her dog, renovated living spaces, and nature shots. Anyone curious to know if she’s still in a relationship with Nick Dana is out of luck since she hasn’t made any statements about their ongoing relationship, nor has she posted a picture with him since 2020.

The world was introduced to Chelsea thanks to reality TV, but that doesn’t mean it’s something she wants to keep up with in the future.
