Mel Waite

Key Facts: Mel is the son of Melvin Waite Sr. and Martha Bitterman Waite (both deceased). He was married to Rebecca Fox Waite (they are now divorced) and together they are parents to teenagers Dylan and Sarah.


The Scoop: As the son of a bankrupt hotelier, Mel has been seeking his fortune --- or, at least, someone else’s fortune --- his entire life. He thought that a law career would do it, but he has also gambled at Vegas and Atlantic City and in private salons for years hoping to get lucky. Mel’s wife left him for it. But now some of Faraway Hill’s biggest secrets have fallen into his lap, and Mel is determined to make the most of them.
