Chelsea Gilson is an American actress and television host from Massachusetts. An only child, she was put into pageants at a very early age, where she developed a love for the limelight. Chelsea stayed in Massachusetts for undergrad, attending Assumption College in Worcester. There, she double majored in Psychology and Spanish, receiving a 3.9 cumulative GPA and graduating within the honors program. Following college, Chelsea moved to Los Angeles and began working in reality casting for the show ‘American Ninja Warrior’. She worked on a variety of reality projects before moving back east. Chelsea stayed in Boston for a year, where she took up a career as an agent for child actors, but she couldn’t stop dreaming of California. On a whim, she applied to host a travel show for Weather Channel called ‘Hit the Road’ with her childhood pen pal. They ended up booking the show and the production flew them to San Francisco to start filming their travels down the California coastline. After the show ended, Chelsea picked up her agent career where she left off, but this time in Beverly Hills. She began working as a theatrical agent for adults at a boutique agency, where she proudly represented her strong roster. However, that taste of life in front of the camera had changed her and given her the courage to pursue hosting and acting. Chelsea eventually left the agency world, and began auditioning in Hollywood. She immediately booked a show for Travel Channel, “Scambushed”. It was a hidden camera show that honed her improv skills. From there, Chelsea went on to grow her hosting resume and was busy with live events, local tv, and even traveling with CBS for “Undercover Boss”. All the while, Chelsea was building her acting resume with independent films and web series. Her big break came after filming an episode for Fox’s ‘Lucifer’, which gave her the resume and credits boost to get in the right audition rooms. Now, Chelsea stays busy bouncing from tv to film job. She especially enjoyed working on Lifetime’s “My Christmas Prince” and “Dolemite is my Name” alongside Eddie Murphy, Wesley Snipes and Mike Ebbs. Chelsea now resides in Los Angeles with her husband and two dogs. When she’s not busy in front of the camera, she maintains a well read travel blog, Traveling Fig, and teaches yoga. She also hosts yoga retreats around the world and assists her husband with their real estate business.
