What Thomas & Karen Everett Do

While Chantel Everett from The Family Chantel has discussed being a registered nurse, a lot of mystery still surrounds the careers of the stars’ parents, Karen and Thomas Everett. The overprotective Americans became notorious in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise when they weighed in on the relationship between Chantel and her partner, Pedro Jimeno. Many viewers have come to like The Family Chantel cast members Karen and Thomas, which leaves fans curious about their wealth.


When Karen and Thomas first appeared on 90 Day Fiancé, they were widely slammed by viewers for accusing Pedro of using Chantel. However, many viewers have started to believe that Karen and Thomas were correct about Pedro’s true intentions. The parents of Chantel, Winter Everett, Riverknight Everett, and Royal Wylie redeemed themselves over the years on The Family Chantel. While Pedro’s family remained cold and cruel, Karen and Thomas proved to truly love their children, and be important parts of a devoted family unit. This led to the parents accepting and embracing Pedro, until he decided to treat Chantel badly, and file divorce papers this year.

Karen and Thomas are believed to have earned a significant chunk of change before their time on The Family Chantel, as they previously discussed Chantel’s inheritance, and how The Family Chantel star needed a prenup to protect her money in case of a divorce. Karen and Thomas live in a sizable home in Atlanta, and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle, while their children also appear to have had cushy bringing up. However, that hasn’t stopped their kids from working. Some people wonder exactly what Thomas does for a living, as he doesn’t have social media, and has not discussed his career. However, Karen lists herself as a business owner on Instagram. She’s said that she would be interested in opening a martial arts studio, although she is currently focusing on other ventures.

While Thomas prefers to support his family members, Karen has appeared in multiple 90 Day Fiancé spin-off shows, including 90 Day Fiancé: Self-Quarantined, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, 90 Day Bares All, and Pillow Talk. She even had her own short-lived Facebook Watch show called Ask Mama Chantel in 2020. On her Instagram, Karen refers to herself as being a public speaker and author. She previously discussed developing a transformative life method called “Evolve Adapt Transform Expand.” Karen also offers advice to her children regularly. Additionally, Karen created products that have BSR written on them, which is short for “bullshit repellent.” This is a motto that the overprotective mother openly lives by.

It is clear that Karen and Thomas have jobs outside their The Family Chantel success. However, appearing on numerous seasons of TLC content has certainly given them extra income. While some The Family Chantel fans believe that Pedro and Chantel’s pending divorce will signal the end of the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off show, others expect the Everett family to return. Many viewers have urged TLC to drop Pedro and his scheme family. However, viewers are hoping that Chantel, Karen, Thomas, and the rest of the family will return to The Family Chantel. They want to see Chantel finding love after her breakup, with the support of her family members.
