Hard worker! From her 90 Day Fiancé days to the TLC spinoff, The Family Chantel, Chantel Everett has shared her life for nearly a decade on reality TV. While fans watched her love story with now-estranged husband Pedro Jimeno play out, they also watched her as she worked hard in school, graduated and then started her career. But what exactly is Chantel’s job?
What Is Chantel Everett’s Job?
When fans first met the Georgia native in 2014, she was 25 years old. At the time, she was attending a community college as she pursued her degree in nursing. On top of her classes, she was juggling a job as a cheerleading instructor.
Chantel continued to work hard in school and even though she had to attend an extra semester after failing an important exam, she finally graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in December 2019. Shortly after graduating, Chantel took a job in the medical field as a registered nurse (RN). According to ZipRecruiter, an entry-level RN can make a salary of $47,000 to $88,000 per year in the state of Georgia.
The brunette beauty appears to enjoy her career, as she often shares photos and videos of her in her scrubs and documents her work days via Instagram.
Chantel gave more insight into her career while participating in a Q&A via her Instagram Stories on September 13. One fan asked the TV personality how her job was going and to reveal which specialty she worked in. Chantel then explained that she’s currently doing “renal med surg and Neuro med surg.”
In November 2022, the reality TV personality made a career change! While still in the health field, Chantel revealed a new title as a travel nurse.
“I absolutely love it,” the TLC alum shared via her Instagram Stories. “I will never go back to regular bedside nursing.” According to Indeed, a travel nurse can make an average of $121,665 per year.
While the 90 Day Fiancé alum enjoyed her stint as a travel nurse, a year later, Chantel revealed she had started her dream job as an injector at a medical spa.
“I can’t wait to live the best part of my life,” the Georgia native captioned a clip of her wearing medical scrubs in November 2023. “I am so excited even though I’m driving to Tennessee this morning.”
What Else Does Chantel Do for a Living?
Chantel’s main source of income is her nursing job, but she also has another stream of income from her time on reality TV. The average 90 Day Fiancé star makes about $1,000 to $1,500 per episode and the average 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star makes slightly more than $1,500, a source told Radar in 2015. Chantel most likely makes more than that per episode as she is the star of her own spinoff. While it’s unclear exactly how much she makes per season, she’s appeared on eight seasons across various spinoffs in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise which more than likely earned her a healthy, supplemental income.
Besides her jobs as a nurse and as a reality TV star, Chantel also does work as a social media influencer. Thanks to her status on TV, she’s amassed 998,000 followers on Instagram and she’s been able to earn money from her large following by doing promotional posts. In the past, Chantel has promoted everything from local gyms and medspas to small business makeup lines, gummy vitamins and weight loss teas.
