Chrisley Knows Best brings Chloe and a comment by Todd Chrisley on college admissions scandal

Chloe, the grandchild of Todd Chrisley lives with Julie and Todd. They pretty much raise her as their own child. And, the cutie’s bright as a penny. So, Julie and Todd discussed applying getting her into a good school. Well, briefly Julie denied they actually made a firm decision on it. But, Todd’s arranged for Chloe to have her interview. Chloe worries maybe the people won’t like her, but Todd tells her not to worry. Julie’s gonna bake “some cookies.” Nope – got that wrong. Anyway, Chloe rather likes the idea of school because her favorite subject is “playing.”

Of course, Todd’s not gonna accept that the little Chrisley Knows Best star should focus on playing for a career. So, he asks her where she sees herself in 10 years. Well, obviously the right answer is “in the mirror.” Ha! Bright and sassy, that little Chloe. But then, Todd says to her, “No Chloe, I want you to be serious. I mean, in 10 years, you could be applying to Harvard, MIT, Stanford.” Then, he adds, “I don’t want to have to bribe someone to get you in. I cannot put you in the rowing team.”

Fans pick up on the shade at the college admissions

Of course, something like that won’t escape sharp-eared fans of Chrisley Knows Best. Several people commented on it on Twitter. One fan said, “Did @toddchrisley throw shade at the college admission scandals that are going on? he was talking about getting Chloe into the stem school and said something about how he can’t ‘put her on a rowing team’ to get her accepted.” Another commented at the expression on Julie’s face. Well, Julie yelled, “Whaaat!”

Actually, Julie’s a bit upset with Todd pressuring Chloe like this. So, she sends her away and sits down for a bit of a one-on-one with Todd. She tells him, “you need to calm down. This is not a job interview.” The Chrisley Knows Best mom says, “if it’s meant to be, she will get in. And, if it’s not the right place for her, she won’t.”
