Chase Stokes dropped by NBC’s “Today” on Friday, March 3 to promote the new season of his Netflix hit “Outer Banks”.

During his interview, Sheinelle Jones expanded the line of questioning into his personal life, asking about his rumoured romance with country singer Kelsea Ballerini.

“Right across the street, on ‘SNL’, we have a pretty good show planned for tomorrow night,” Jones said. “Kelsea Ballerini, she’ll be taking the stage. Going out on a limb here — are you a fan?”
