Grayson Chrisley is ready to begin his life as a college student, but his big sister Savannah Chrisley isn't quite ready to send him off.

On the latest episode of her Unlocked podcast airing April 30, the two Chrisley Knows Best alums went back and forth over their differing opinions regarding Grayson attending college in January 2025.

"You going into school halfway through the year is not good," Savannah, 26, said, as Grayson, 17, responded, "My thing is I wish sometimes you would let me learn my own mistakes."

Savannah believed her younger sibling only wants to go to college so he can "party," suggesting he's "not mature enough" for the experience. But Grayson begged to differ, noting that he's "been working since I was 6 years old" and that his sister still has "yet to give me one single reason how it will negatively affect me."

"You want to go so you can go to football games and so you can party. You can't even get up," Savannah argued. "It would be different if you could keep your room clean [or] if you could get up to an alarm clock. You're wanting to go to college, but you can't even do the basic, bare minimum."

"But I will be able to when it's just up to me when I have to do it," said Grayson, as Savannah replied, "It's very selfish if you're sitting here saying that I'll do it when I need to."

Grayson, however, revealed his big "plan" for his future: he aspires to be a sports agent.

"I told you I'm majoring in business and minoring in sports management," he explained. "So I do have a plan. I already have an internship set up with Lee [White] at WME in their sports section. So I do have a plan. That's what I wanna do."

Savannah, who stated that she doesn't want to financially "subsidize" Grayson's collegiate endeavors since she doesn't "agree with" it, then resolved: "I will let you learn from your own mistakes and when you learn from your own mistakes, that means you learn from your own mistakes. You don't get help. It will be just like I did with dad. I did it all on my own."

After Grayson noted how their situations were "not the same," the pair continued to go back and forth. Savannah then concluded that the two siblings would have to "agree to disagree."

Grayson is set to turn 18 on May 16. He, along with 11-year-old Chloe Chrisley (the biological daughter of Kyle Chrisley), have remained under Savannah's care since their parents Todd and Julie Chrisley reported to prison in January 2023.

Amid Savannah's turn as Grayson and Chloe's legal guardian, her younger brother praised her parenting abilities.

"There's no good way around both of your parents being in prison," Grayson said on a previous episode of Unlocked. "That's one thing that there's no good solution to ... until they get out. There's no way around it."

Savannah continued, "But also too, I think one thing that I appreciate from you and love you so much for is you said, 'Hey, you're doing a really good job. I know it may feel like you're not, but you're doing a good job.'"

"Yeah, because you're a kid raising two kids," Grayson responded, adding, "It pisses me off, is things you have to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Everybody else thinks that you're just sitting around, going out to nice dinners and going on vacation all the time."
