PENSACOLA, FLORIDA: Todd Chrisley is reportedly eating almost as well in prison as he would have at home with his wife Julie and the children. The TV personality reportedly enjoyed a steak for his first meal at FPC Pensacola.

Chrisley, 53, checked into the low-security facility on January 17 to begin his 12-year sentence. Meanwhile, Julie, 50, was taken into custody at the Federal Medical Center Lexington in Kentucky on the same day to start her seven-year sentence. FPC Pensacola's meal schedule indicated the 'Chrisley Knows Best' star did not miss a lot when it came to food after he was locked up.

The prison's meal plan, obtained by Radar Online, listed Todd's first prison dinner as peppered steak, steamed rice and green beans. The reality star-turned-convicted fraudster was also served whole wheat bread with his dinner. The facility where the disgraced TV star will presumably carry out his 12-year sentence, has previously housed popular inmates including Chris Collins, who was taken into custody for insider trading before being pardoned by former President Donald Trump.

According to WGRZ-TV, the prison camp is comparatively "comfortable" as an expert said that "if you have to do federal prison time, that's the place to be." They added, "There aren't any barbed wire fences and so on. There's obviously security and guards but it's not a place that you're going to find serious, dangerous criminals and so on." Though the amenities and facilities offered are better than other prisons, Chrisley is allowed to keep and own items of personal property that "do not exceed the value of $100 per item," per Daily Mail.

According to RadarOnline, the couple leaned on their "faith, therapy, and family" in the days leading up to their incarceration and their primary goal had been to keep the family united through this difficult time. The couple was spotted getting their affairs in order before turning themselves in to the police. Julie was seen exiting a grocery store with a cart full of goods for her children, while Chrisley was snapped leaving the local post office before taking their children out for one last family meal. The pair has three children together, Chase, 26, Savannah, 25, and Grayson, 16. Meanwhile, they also have their adopted granddaughter, Chloe, 10, and Chrisley's older children from his previous marriage, Lindsie, 33, and Kyle, 31.
