Shannon and Shannade Clermont (born March 21, 1994), sometimes called the Clermont twins, are American models, fashion designers, and television personalities. They received media attention for their appearance on the fourteenth season of the reality show “Bad Girl Club” in 2015, and have since established a wide range of influence on the internet and social media.
The identical twins were born on March 21, 1994 in Montclair, New Jersey; They are the youngest of five siblings, with an older sister and two brothers. Her parents are immigrants, her mother is from Jamaica and runs a daycare, and her father is from Haiti and owns a moving company. They described their family as a “working working class” and moved to Dallas, Georgia when they were nine years old.
They started modeling when they were 14 years old; After winning a six-month show in acting and modeling school, they served as understudies on television shows like Tyler Perry’s Penn House.
Since their aunt is a fashion designer in New York City, the twins became interested in fashion. They claim that “[they] have no other plans than to go to New York City,” despite both receiving full college scholarships in Georgia; Shannon studied fashion marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Shannade studied at Parsons School of Design. They both received their bachelor’s degrees in 2016. They have since moved to Los Angeles.
In 2015, the Clermont twins appeared as two of the first seven actors on the fourteenth season of the reality show “Bad Girl Club.” Shannon said they participated in the show because “[they] just want people to know who [they] are” on a national level. After the seventh episode, they were removed from the series, in which a fight ensued, involving other actors destroying their belongings.
They claimed they would never do it again, “but said they” must have grown up with that show [and] learned a lot “and believe in this show” [allow them] to truly grow with [their] audience. “They have endorsed this show. Because they have significantly expanded their fan base on social media, and they have been branded as influencers after their appearance.
