’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Chantel Jimeno Responds to Plastic Surgery Rumors: ‘Always Had Boobs’
Did Chantel Jimeno (née Everett) from 90 Day Fiancé get a boob job? She sparked rumors yet again when she returned for season 2 of her TLC spinoff, The Family Chantel, with husband Pedro Jimeno. After showcasing her voluptuous curves in several episodes, she responded to the rumors head-on and set the record straight.
“Always had boobs,” Chantel captioned a photo of herself as a teen via her Instagram Story on November 5, 2020. “Then I grew up,” she captioned a more recent photo of herself. She then shared a throwback photo of herself from 2009 next to a photo of herself taken in 2019, with her chest appearing to be the same size in both snaps.
Then, Chantel shared a photo of herself taken in September 2020. “And gained weight,” she added.
“Just wanted to clear that up,” the nursing school student captioned another slide of her rocking a teal blue bikini. “I believe in doing whatever makes you feel comfortable in your own skin. Working out, makeup, even surgery. People keep asking about ‘my surgeries.’ I just wanted to make it known that I have not had any, but do believe [in] having confidence to do what makes you feel beautiful [red heart emoji].”
After making her point, Chantel shared several throwback photos of herself taken from 2011 through 2015, seemingly proving she has always been on the bustier side — even when she was thinner.
“I may lose weight and then y’all gonna be shook [laughing with tears emoji],” she wrote.
The Georgia native then shared one last message to her haters. “They want it to be fake so bad,” she teased in the caption of a recent bikini photo.
Chantel first sparked plastic surgery rumors on season 4 of TLC’s hit reality TV series, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Fans and even her fellow 90 Day Fiancé costars speculated that she may have undergone breast augmentation surgery because her chest appeared to be bigger than it did in previous seasons of the show.
The reality star added fuel to the rumors during the October 19 episode of The Family Chantel. In one scene, Chantel went on a job interview for a position as a nurse at a local plastic surgeon’s office.
The surgeon asked Chantel if she’s gotten any work done, and she revealed she had received Botox injections in between her eyebrows in the middle of her forehead. In her confessional, a producer asked if that was the only work she’s had done in the past. Chantel responded, “I don’t want to say things that don’t matter.”
