Charleston is the 28th most expensive city to live in within the United States. So, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that the cast members of Southern Charm have quite a bit of dough in their pockets.
However, some of them definitely have less than expected.
The most important aspect of reality TV is of course having a hilarious cast, paired with all the drama they can stir up.

Southern Charm has no shortage of laughs, and certainly no shortage of drama either, served up by the down south cast.
Whitney Sudler-Smith, the brains behind this beautiful piece of reality TV, told Urban Daddy that the goal of the whole show is to show off:

“The idea of southern aristocracy…it’s interesting that even though they’ve lived this fairy tale existence, they have real problems like everyone else in America would.”
We took a closer look at how much money these Southern Charmers really have….
And some of the numbers will completely shock you.
Craig Conover is the only cast member who isn’t originally from the south.
In fact, the only reason that he even ended up in Charleston in the first place is due to the fact that he attended college and law school there.

There has been a lot of controversy in regards to Craig and law school.
During the first season of the show, he was working at a law firm and preparing to take the bar.
Shorty after though, he was fired for his lack of work ethic. It was later revealed that Craig didn’t even take the bar.

In the meantime, he’s been making a living off of his random entrepreneurial endeavors.
Apparently, Craig has also been keeping himself busy getting everything in order to actually take the bar.
