After Chantel and Pedro fell in love on Chantel's trip to the Dominican Republic and secretly got engaged, Pedro then went to Atlanta, Georgia, on a K-1 visa, where he and Chantel now live. Their story is documented on season four of 90 Day Fiancé. The couple later starred on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. The Family Chantel follows Chantel and Pedro as they work through family drama.
\"This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular 90 Day couples, and on a whole new night,\" Howard Lee, president and general manager of TLC, said in a statement. \"Our fans can't get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families. For a brand known as THE destination for love, relationships and family shows, The Family Chantel hits the bullseye.\"
The family members featured in the upcoming show include Chantel's parents Karen and Thomas, siblings River and Winter, and Pedro's mother Lidia and sister Nicole.
The drama has run high between the families of Pedro and Chantel since Chantel first introduced Pedro to her family under false pretenses. She told him he was coming to America on a student visa, not a K-1 visa...And from there, the drama has only grown, including arguments over chicken feet and culminating in a physical fight between Pedro and Chantel's family.
When viewers catch up with Pedro and Chantel in Happily Ever After, Chantel is still blaming Pedro for the brawl that happened between him and her family and he returns to the Dominican Republic. However, Chantel isn't ready to give up on her marriage just yet and heads down to bring him back.
Elizabeth's family has never been the biggest Andrei fan. Now that the couple is expecting their first child, Andrei has to rely on his in-laws for help landing a job. However, is it all just so Elizabeth's family can hold him in their debt
Their wedding in Morocco never happened, instead Nicole, 25, and Azan, 26, opened a business. However, Nicole's tourist visa expired and she had no choice but to return to Florida. She's living on a family member's couch and still sending Azan money. However, her family has not given up on trying to convince her that he may be exploiting her.
A family dinner went wild between Chantel, 27, and her family and husband Pedro, 27. Punches were thrown and it looked like the couple were ready to call it quits. Chantel blames Pedro for the brawl, and he in turn returns to the Dominican Republic. However, Chantel isn't ready to give up on her marriage that easily.
Rumors have been circulating that there would be another season of The Family Chantel to keep fans connected with Chantel and her family. However, if that is not possible, viewers will gladly see Chantel in any of the other 90 Day spin-offs. Meanwhile, fans have been following the 90 Day Fiancé stars every move on Instagram, and they are rooting for her to come out on top this year. Considering the kind of social media attention she is getting, having a great year looks inevitable.
TLC released on Instagram Monday promotional photos of Chantel and Pedro along with other family members. \"Things are about to get a lot more stupider! A new #90DayFiance spinoff #TheFamilyChantel is coming to you Monday nights this July!!\" the network said.
\"This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular 90 Day couples, and on a whole new night,\" president and general manager of TLC Howard Lee said in a statement.
\"Our fans can't get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families. For a brand known as THE destination for love, relationships and family shows, The Family Chantel hits the bullseye,\" he continued.Advertisement
On Pedro's side of the family, his little sister Nicole is still in a long-distance relationship with Alejandro who resides in New York and is still... married. When Pedro presses Alejandro as to when he's getting divorced, Alejandro says it's not his problem. The men come to blows when Alejandro tells Pedro, \"You're a bull------- and your mother's a bull------- as well.\" No one talks about Pedro's mama Lidia that way!
Last season, a lot of tension seemed to brew between the married couple over her \"lack of emotional support\" for Pedro as he was trying to dive into some deep issues with the paternal side of his family. Speaking of family, things weren't great on his maternal side as Pedro ended last season on the outs with both his sister and mother. As a viewer, we only hope the break in filming allowed fractured bonds to be healed.
\"The Family Chantel\" reality star Nicole Jimeno also has beef with her sister-in-law Chantel Everett Jimeno. The Dominican Republic native never wanted her brother to marry an American wife and urged him to wed a woman from his native country. Nicole even showed family and friends footage of a woman grinding on Pedro in what seemed to be a lap dance. Suffice to say, there's no love lost between Chantel and her sister-in-law because Nicole tried to sabotage her marriage, Chantel also had a few choice words about Nicole's relationship with married man Alejandro Padron. \"I'm not surprised by Nicole's choice because it's just like her to try to ruin someone's marriage,\" she said (via Cheat Sheet).
In Season 3 of \"The Family Chantel,\" Nicole goes for the jugular by again attacking Pedro and Chantel's marriage. Toward the end of \"The Family Chantel\" Season 3 trailer, Nicole parades into a room intent on causing trouble. She utters five devastating words before leaving. \"Pedro had sex with Coraima,\" she claimed. She also took aim at Chantel's mother, blasting, \"Look mother, go to hell!\" As family members try to intervene before things escalate, security is called, and a police car pulls up. Pedro's upset with his sister and warns her, \"You go too far. You're crazy.\"
In Episode 13 of The Family Chantel Season 4, Pedro is seen moving out of the house, while Chantel tells her family about her marriage situation. Things will get out of hand when Pedro reveals in a preview that Chantel has taken all the money from their joint account. 59ce067264
