The Show Will Highlight the Ongoing Feud Between Both Families & How it Impacts Chantel & Pedro’s Relationship
According to Howard Lee, president and general manager of TLC, the network wanted to create a show based on one of their most popular 90 Day couples.
“Our fans can’t get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families,” Lee said in a statement. “For a brand known as the destination for love, relationships and family shows, The Family Chantel hits the bullseye.”
The spinoff will highlight the couple’s issues with each other’s families, which have been present (and growing) since the very beginning of their relationship after the reality stars lied to their parents about how they met, why Pedro was actually coming to the U.S., and their engagement. Chantel’s parents Karen and Thomas and her siblings River and Winter, as well as Pedro’s mother Lidia and sister Nicole will be featured on the show.
The feud between Pedro and Chantel’s families (or as Pedro refers to them: “The Family Chantel,” hence the spinoff title), started years ago during season 4 when the couple was first introduced on the show. After Chantel lied about why Pedro was coming to the U.S., her family didn’t trust Pedro and were suspicious of his intentions with their daughter. They accused him of using her for his visa and for “harvesting the American dollar” to send back to his family in the Dominican Republic. Pedro’s family didn’t appreciate the way Chantel’s family was treating their son, or what they were accusing him of, and in turn took it out on Chantel. The drama has been extensively documented on 90 Day Fiancé for several years.
