Hello, have you watched Outer Banks yet? Because it’s truly a lifestyle. Like, am I only saying that because I’m currently flopped on my couch living vicariously through Netflix? Probably. But also, Outer Banks is pure escapism, the closest thing we’re gonna get to a beach vacation this year, and—more importantly—it introduced us to 27-year-old actor Chase Stokes, aka John B, aka this dude:
Chase was relatively under the radar before being cast on Outer Banks, which means no one really knows anything about him. Time to change that, fellow bored people.
First of All, HE’S! A! POET!
Fun fact: I’ve been working on a poetry book. Here’s a little piece into my brain. I know it’s not OBX content, but I just wanted to be a little more personal and share something that I’m super passionate about. Happy Sunday ya fools.

I am in no way, shape, or form okay with this.
He Was in Stranger Things
Welp it’s Friday the 13th, and the trailer for season 2 just dropped and I’m super stoked for all of these guys. Also the internet is weird. Here’s me in a time warp in a strange place called Hawkins, Indiana. I think I was chasing tornadoes or something idk. it was many moons ago. #strangerthings #up2nogood

He Talks to Inanimate Objects
I don’t even know what to say about this, so here’s the direct quote:
“This is going to sound like I should be in a psychiatric ward, but I talk to inanimate objects. Not at, like, a surface-value thing. I like to ask them how they’re doing and how’s their heart, how’s their soul. And then I snap back into reality, and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I’m talking to an [inanimate object].’”
Would love to know what convo Chase had with this slice of pizza:

Very Important: Chase Is Single
At least, that’s the vibe I’m getting for him saying this about Jennifer Aniston during an interview with Glamour: “There’s no chance for me, but at least knowing that we both have an Instagram, there’s a slight possibility that this could potentially turn into a conversation, at least.”
Also, apparently, he’s “really, really attracted to intellect,” which is great news for my quarantine body!!!!!
He’s a Pro Ice Hockey Player
Or he almost was. Chase recently said he “grew up predominately playing ice hockey” and was even “going to play in college and then do the professional route” until some injuries set him back.
Yes, He Surfs IRL
Chase describes himself as a “water child” who spent his time surfing while growing up “all along the eastern shore.”

But! He Def Used a Stunt Double on Outer Banks
And as I said I’d post. Here’s John b, stunt John b doin a lil trip and fall off the hawks nest. It takes a village to get these shots, and I’m so thankful for all of our stunt doubles, and coordinators for there consistent hard work!

He’s From a Big Family
Chase has two brothers and a sister, and they all look like professional Gap models:
