In 2020, Kimmi Chex had moved from New York to Los Angeles when her best friend proclaimed he had found the man who would be the NFL personality’s future husband. Content in the early pandemic lull, Chex was not keen on dressing up and pursuing a romance. But after looking up Jason White online (the one who got her best friend’s seal of approval), she was intrigued.
