1. Southern Charm's Chleb Ravenell Had A Ravishing Football Career Before His Reality TV Debut

According to his Linkedin profile, Chleb Ravenell was a wide receiver for Calgary Stampeder Football Club for two years. From 2015 to 2017, the player actively served the club to map itself in the CFL.

In 2016, he was anxious to get on the field for rookie camp with the Calgary Stampeders. Certainly, the off-season might seem endless to players eager to go back on the field and battle for more than two weeks of training camp before starting another CFL season.

However, Ravenell's situation is somewhat unusual because he was yet to join a team after concluding his college career back in 2011.

Similarly, from 2009 to 2010, he played for his college team, the western Michigan Broncos. While he played two seasons, his statistics showed 115 total receptions, 1,352 YDS, and 9 TD. This becomes an average of 11.8. 

He was getting there, but no one knows why he left his promising career in sports. Presumably, he had his priorities set and wanted better things in life.
