Make room Thomas Ravenel, you're about share the small screen with the cast of Southern Charm Savannah. Who are these new Charmers you ask? Get to know them a little better below before you officially meet the Charmers in the premiere May 8 at 10/9c.
1. Meet: Catherine Cooper
Catherine is by no means a delicate, Southern belle. By the time she was in her teens, she could bait a hook, throw a cast net, and operate a boat. She knew Savannah wouldn't be able to hold her for long and she took flight, first to Austria and then New York City. Realizing her hometown had more to offer, she now returns to the Southern city to maneuver around her new job and her on-again/off-again relationship with her high school sweetheart and fellow castmate, Lyle.
2. Meet: Lyle Mackenzie
Lyle is a true Southern boy who isn't afraid to break the rules. It took him a few tries to find his calling, from several odd jobs, a few school suspensions, and an arduous college career, to landing a job with a Fortune 500 company working in international logistics. But Lyle soon grew tired of this choice and decided to head back to Georgia to enter a career in selling salon and spa equipment and to pursue high school sweetheart, Catherine.
3. Meet: Ashley Borders
Ashley was drawn to Savannah to give her son, Izzy, a similar childhood experience to that of her own. Ashley is an actress, stylist, and creative director and has owned three different clothing lines. She started her first clothing line, House of Borders, at 16-years-old and has continued to design and manufacture her own fashion collections. Work has taken her everywhere from Asia to Europe to the Middle East but she's now starting over in her hometown of Savannah.
4. Meet: Daniel Eichholz
Daniel's family ties to Savannah run deep, traced back to the days of the American Revolution. His ancestors founded the first synagogue in Georgia, and one of the first in the United States. An entrepreneur at heart, Daniel is passionate about his company, Track My Leads, which uses proprietary lead management software to monitor and maximize marketing campaigns, as well as several other business projects he maintains. On his downtime, Daniel seems to enjoy deep sea fishing with his family. He also maintains a chiseled bod, which might lead him to become the resident heart throb of #SouthernCharmSAV.
5. Meet: Hannah Pearson
Hannah returns to Savannah to turn the idea of Southern belle on its head. Leaving behind her life in cosmetics, she's making in-roads at a trucking company. Hannah has run into some issues with her father, but she's figuring it all out from Savannah. She's dating fellow Charmer Louis - who started off as a mutual friend and now the pair have been dating 5 years! Hannah's a modern woman in old Savannah society, and we can't wait to see this culture clash.
6. Meet: Louis Oswald
Louis followed in his grandfather's footsteps in the field of finance. Though he thought he'd add a little pep to his step when he began JL the Brand, a collection of bright and vibrant men’s dress socks with fun patterns. You can find Louis close to water - like everyone in Savannah - where he enjoys fishing and boating. He's close pals with Charmer Daniel, who is featured in several pictures on his Instagram. But the question remains, will he tie the knot with girlfriend and fellow castmate, Hannah? Find out how their story and the rest of the Charmers' lives unfold when Southern Charm Savannah airs Monday, May 8 at 10/9c.
