America's Next Top Model

Heather Jones (born September 8, 1987 in Austin, Texas), better known as Chantal Jones, is an American fashion model. She was the runner-up on cycle 9 of ANTM in 2007.


Jones was perhaps most known for her bubbly personality and all-American looks. As the show progressed, Tyra commented that she resembles Cheryl Tiegs, one of the first American modern supermodels. Her photographs were generally praised by the judges, and she appeared in the bottom two only once for the Enrique Iglesias music video.

Chantal earned a spot among the final two models along with fellow contestant Saleisha. During the final runway challenge in Beijing, China, she faced difficulty when a performer on stilts tripped on the train of her dress, which caused her to temporarily lose her composure. At the final deliberation, the judges noted Jones' high-fashion appeal, but were also impressed by Stowers' command of the final runway and her fluidity. Jones was declared the runner-up.

She was a "Top Model In Action" bumper for cycle 11.[1]


After the show, Chantal signed with Nous Model Management, L.A. Models Runway Division, Paragon Models Mexico and Synergy Models Hong Kong.[2][3]

She walked in runway shows in Austin, Texas, and for Oscar De La Renta in an Oscar Fashion Preview, for Whitley Kros, Jenny Han, and Falguni & Shane Peacock in L.A. Fashion Week in the 2008 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.[4] She has also participated in Lauren Conrad's debut collection fashion show and the Pussycat Dolls by Robin Antin fashion show during L.A. Fashion Week.[5][6] Recently, Jones has been spotted modeling for Clandestine Industries Clothing in a Nordstorm mall, a line created by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.

She was in the magazines BL!SS, 7x7, Orange Coast, MundoE and Nupicias. She has shot advertisements for Ag+, C&A, Farmers, KMS, Mancandy and Tempe Marketplace.[7][8]


In 2008, she had a guest role on the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. She portrayed the main character in the music video for Pete Yorn's "Don't Wanna Cry".[9] She was also in the video for The Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling".[10]
