Former contestant on The Bachelorette, Chase McNary, is officially engaged to his long-time girlfriend Ellie White. Chase is known for his time on The Bachelorette where he came in third on JoJo Fletcher’s season. Chase and JoJo were not able to develop a strong relationship, as JoJo did not share the same feelings for Chase. Though Chase had difficulty sharing his emotions, he was upset by her rejection. However, he was able to put his anger aside to move forward from the situation. Chase soon met Ellie White, who is a businesswoman and director of Meridian Wealth Management LLC. She is also the founder of Haut Bas, which is a company that creates and sells custom hats.
The two started dating in 2020 and have shared pictures together on their social media. Chase frequently posted photos of him and Ellie enjoying their various activities, such as camping and site seeing. The Bachelor Nation alum seems to be excited to let his fans know that he is in a happy, committed relationship with Ellie. It appears that the two have met at a good point in time, as Chase was reportedly in the running to be the lead of The Bachelor. Apparently, Chase had already signed the contracts and was ready to go. However, this plan did not work out, and there were last-minute changes that did not allow Chase to take on that role. Fortunately, he was able to find the perfect match outside of the show.
After two years of dating, Chase recently proposed to Ellie during a picnic in Breckenridge, Colorado. Both Chase and Ellie posted pictures on Instagram to share their special moment with fans of Bachelor Nation. The picnic site was decorated with several candles, flowers, and lanterns for the event. After Ellie accepted the proposal, the two shared a bottle of Champagne. Chase shared a video of the proposal and captioned the post by saying, “It was always you.” Ellie shared pictures of her beautiful ring as well as the two sharing their happy moment together. She captioned her post with, “Take me off the roster. Forever his.”
Fans congratulated Chase and Ellie on their engagement. Many of Chase’s friends from The Bachelorette commented on his post saying they are excited to see the two engaged and they are waiting to celebrate with them. Bachelor Nation star Wells Adams stated Ellie probably expected the proposal because her outfit made her look ready for the occasion. Some fans commented that they have watched the couple’s relationship develop since the beginning and were happy to see they truly found their match.
Fans are hoping to see more of Chase and Ellie in the future. They are excited for the two to get married and share more of their lives together on social media. It is nice to see Chase find joy with Ellie and be able to express himself freely after his experiences on The Bachelorette.
