Savannah Chrisley is one of 14 celebrities set to appear on the upcoming season of “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.” Her appearance comes as her parents are serving prison sentences for tax evasion and fraud.

Savannah Chrisley, 25, is the second child of three born to Todd and Julie Chrisley (although Todd has two others from a previous relationship). As a family the Chrisley’s rose to fame due to the reality show “Chrisley Knows Best,” and the spinoff, “Growing Up Chrisley.”

In June 2022, Todd and Julie were found guilty of tax evasion and fraud, among other charges, and were sentenced to twelve and seven years in prison, respectively.

The elder Chrisley’s imprisonment left Savannah to take care of her younger brother, Grayson, and niece, Chloe. Savannah has been open about the struggles she has faced since her parents reported to prison in January 2023, but she isn’t letting it keep her down. In fact, the former beauty pageant competitor-turned-reality tv star is returning to the small screen this fall.

According to a press release, Savannah Chrisley signed on to compete on the second season of Fox’s “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test,” a reality competition that will test her limits, physical and emotional.

The quasi-military training competition puts celebrity competitors through a rigorous test to see if they have what it takes to be a member of the Special Forces.

“Celebrities from all genres take on — and try to survive — demanding training exercises led by directing staff agents, an elite team of ex-Special Forces operatives. In this unique series, the only way for these recruits to leave is to give up on their own accord, through failure or potential injury, or by force from the agents,” the show’s website reads. “Viewers see the recruits face the harshest of environments that simulate the highly classified selection process, pushing themselves in the ultimate test of their physical, mental and emotional resilience and revealing the celebrities’ deepest and truest character.”

Savannah Chrisley will join other familiar names such as dancer JoJo Siwa, Olympic skier Bode Miller, former NFL star Dez Bryant, “Beverly Hills, 90210” actor Brian Austin Green, and Bob Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo.

Filmed in the frigid mountains of New Zealand, the show is scheduled to premiere on Fox Monday, September 25. See a special preview in the video below.
