Chante Jantjies parents are of different backgrounds. Her mum is Xhosa, and her dad is Scottish-Italian. Growing up, she was often secluded by her peers, making her question where she would fit in.
She found a place to fit in at the age of fourteen, and it was nowhere else but the South African showbiz industry. She became one of the KTV presenters at a young age. After serving for in KTV South Africa a while, Jantjies decided to revive a spark she already had from a young age. She revived her modeling interests and began taking part in beauty pageants.

Chante Jantjies journey to KTV and SABC
Chante gained a role in KTV when she was fourteen years old to be a kids’ presenter. This opportunity was a game-changer for her, and it was the presenting task that made her fall in love with live television. By the time she was turning eighteen years old, she had already bagged a position to work at Ann7 as a news anchor.
However, looking back at the launch of Ann7, her dreams were not to become a news anchor. She initially auditioned at the television station for a lifestyle presenter post. Although she had ranked among potential lifestyle presenters Ann7 needed, there were, however, too many of the candidates.
Few candidates were, therefore, selected during the final recruitment process. Chante was not on this list but was instead transferred to the weather reporting department. She was responsible for reading five min weather forecast. This was frustrating for her because these were not her initial expectations.
An unfortunate situation of one of the news anchors opened the door for her to slide into the news anchor field. She covered for a news anchor who was out due to an anxiety attack. As most people put it, ‘the rest is history’. Since then, her career in the news anchor department has been blossoming.
She was on air every morning at the weekends from 6 am to 9 am, and in the evening from 9 pm to 12 am. At the time, she was also studying. After she was done with her studies, Jantjies took on the Prime Time Lunch position airing from 12 to 3 pm. At 21 years old, she was also a co-anchor for the Prime Time evening news.
Unfortunately, she left the channel in September 2016. In late 2017, she acquired a position on SABC. She has been working here ever since and has acknowledged that she is glad to use the chance at SABC to take her career to higher levels.

All public figures in all countries worldwide have one thing in common, and that is fans always being interested in their relationship or dating history. Chante cannot escape this since she is considered a celebrity in South Africa. Most of her fans are always speculating on her boyfriend or husband. The thing her admirers need to know is that she is very secretive when it comes to her personal life.
Therefore, it is hard to say if she is dating or if she has walked down the aisle. If at all she is dating or is married, then she has done an incredible job in keeping her love interest away from the public eye.
