How Will Todd Chrisley Spend His Days In Prison?
Todd will not be confined to his cell all day and will work a prison job in the mornings and afternoons. He has a 4:45 a.m. wakeup call, followed by making his bed and making sure his cell area is neat and clean. He will then eat breakfast with fellow inmates between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m.
The Chrisley Knows Best alum could be assigned any type of prison work ranging from landscaping, housekeeping and laundry, library duty or other jobs that help keep the prison running. He’ll eat lunch at 11 a.m., while dinner is served for an hour beginning at 4:30 p.m. He’ll have time in the evening to read, watch TV and play games, and even enjoy movie nights with his fellow inmates. Todd will have a nightly 10 p.m. lights out bedtime.
Since FPC Pensacola is a minimum security facility, inmates are allowed to participate in outdoor team sports including softball, soccer and basketball. The federal prison camp even has its own gym, track and racquetball courts. Todd will also have access to learning such skills as woodworking and other trades, in addition to pursuing academic studies while incarcerated.
