- "Get out... get out, please. I stuck up for you because I thought it was the right thing to do. I want to clear my name, I can go bed and sleep at night. [...] Just get the fuck out, alright? This is escalating, and I don't want it like the way it's going... that's why I came over here, get out please. I love you, man. You're my nephew, you're my blood."
- ―Chris' plea to Jesse in O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?
Christopher Ridgway, better known as simply Uncle Chris, is Jeffrey Ridgway Sr.'s older brother and also Jesse and Jeffrey Jr.'s paternal uncle. He initially served as the FARMING SERIES' main antagonist up until his eventual redemption.
Chris came across McCann's Farm at some point in his life and was hired as a farmer. He was seen in various videos on his nephew Jesse's YouTube channel McJuggerNuggets (e,g. Jesse Reaches 100,000 Gamerscore).
Despite being brothers, Jeffrey Sr. and Chris seem to share a tense relationship. Both seem to apparently "owe each other", as Chris owes him for getting Jesse a job, while Jeffrey Sr. owes him if Jesse is unwilling to cooporate, as well as other things that Jeffrey Sr. has mentioned are none of Jesse's business. In addition, Jeff Sr. and Chris both share similar traits.
Regardless, the two agree that Jesse's current state is a mess and that he needs a job.
In BYE BYE BIGBRUDDA!, Jeffrey Jr. reveals that Chris and Jeffrey Sr. used to fight all the time, similar to how Jesse and Jeffrey Jr. did.
In O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?, Chris tells Jeffrey Sr that he threw him under the bus for making it sound like he called Jesse's dad. This causes a heated argument with both of them about how he is treated and his Youtube job. He tells Jesse that his Dad needs psychiatric help.
Chris and Jesse currently maintain a somewhat decent relationship. According to Jesse, he and Chris would never get along, which would be shown later on as the two tend to share insults and bicker. Chris was shown to be abusive to Jesse at times, even putting him in a chokehold.
Both Jesse and Chris do not look forward working with each other, but in the end, they are willing to see how it will work out.
Chris is not a fan of Jesse's gaming and vlogging, he wants him to get a real job. Chris seems to not acknowledge YouTube as a job, let alone not even know what YouTube is.
There are a few times where he is shown as a good uncle and cares about Jesse, willing to tour him around a market and provide him with food at a barbecue in THE COWTOWN RODEO!. He seems to be more reasonable than his brother Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. concerning YouTube.
The biggest impact in their relationship was in HELL TO PAY!, where Chris was furious when he found out that Jesse had quit his job at the farm. Chris was ready to attack to him, until Jesse tried to reason him in a talk. Afterwards, the two began to show their family love for each other, with the two hugging and thanking each other. Chris even revealed that he got Warrior to tone down the price of his truck, in order for Jesse to use the remaining money for something good in the future. He even encouraged him to get out of Jeffrey Sr's house as soon as he can.
In O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?, Chris is shown standing up for Jesse when arguing with Jeffrey Ridgway Sr. When Jesse thanked Chris for standing up to him, and said that nobody stood up to his dad, Chris said that "somebody's got to", thus showing that Chris has a heart. It's also revealed that Chris did not go all out and tell Jeffrey Sr. that Jesse quit his job.
Chris and Corn share a poor relationship (despite not knowing each other all that well).
Chris tends to insult Corn with homophobic jokes such as referring to him as a "jackass", "Cornhole" and "Jesse's gay buddy." When Jesse wants Corn to work with him at the farm, Chris seemed to be quite reluctant about it, thinking the two might have a "circle jerk" with each other. Meanwhile, Corn simply views Chris as an "asshole".
It is shown in NO CAMERAS ALLOWED! that Chris has no problems committing assault to Corn, as he is shown to drag and push him around when bringing him and Jesse to Anita, when he discovered that they still had the camera with them. Their relationship is severely damaged in RAGE QUITTER! *PSYCHO UPDATE*, where the two get into a heated argument after Chris throws goat feces at Corn, causing the latter to quit the job and appear very angered afterward, which is very unlike Corn. In DON'T BE A CHICKEN!, Chris was surprised to see Corn at the farm again with the camera, until Jesse and Anita explained that he was only here for filming. Regardless, Chris and Corn were still mad at each other about the day before, and were reluctant on apologizing to each other at first, but they eventually did so. Despite this, however, they continued to bicker each other.
