Chester (Justice Smith) tryng to figure out Sam
Chester (Justice Smith)

The star player of the water polo team, with a 4.1 GPA, Chester is an ideal student – minus consistently breaking the dress code. But while popular and academically stellar, Chester is also a bit lonely. Add in a mother who died of cancer, a grandmother raising him, and her being his only family? Well, it makes Chester feel a longing for something stable and more.

Additional Information

  • Introduced In Season 1 Episode 1 “Pilot” [Series Premiere]
  • Astrological Sign (1.2): Chester is a Scorpio
  • Grandma Does Have A Brother (1.2): It’s noted Chester’s grandmother does have a brother, so she isn’t his only family, but with him being part of QAnon, Chester isn’t close to him.
  • I Knew I Was Gay When (1.3): One of Chester’s first experiences with a penis was when he was 8 and stung by a jellyfish. While he didn’t enjoy getting peed on, seeing a big dick definitely made some other things clear to him.
  • Age (1.6): Is 17
  • Aspirations (1.6): Wants to live in London, study psychology, art, possibly literature, as well as fashion. Imagines themselves by 40 in a London townhouse overall.
