They’re Back! TLC Announces “90 Day Fiance” Spin-Off Will Focus on Chantel Everett’s Family: Get Ready for ‘The Family Chantel!’

Hold on to your wigs! Chantel’s crew is coming back! (You seriously can’t make this stuff up…)

Things are about to get a lot more stupider!

TLC has announced that it is taking all the wig snatchin’, face bitin’, American dollar harvestin’ fun that the family of Chantel Everett gave us while appearing on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? and turning it into a new spin-off show!

The network will soon premiere The Family Chantel, featuring Chantel, her husband Pedro Jimeno and their families, including Chantel’s parents Karen and Thomas, and her siblings River and Winter.

Pedro’s mother Lidia, and his sister Nicole will also be featured on the show. (There’s no word yet if Nicole’s wig will be featured or not.)

According to People, ‘The Family Chantel’ will “showcase the couple’s continuing ups and downs since they lied to Chantel’s family about their engagement.”

Tell us how you feel about The Family Chantel, Pedro!

Howard Lee, President and General Manager of TLC released a statement about the show.

“This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular ‘90 Day’ couples, on a whole new night,” he said. “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.”

They’re also good for a physical altercation…or seven.

We first met Chantel and Pedro when they appeared on the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé. They lied to Chantel’s family about their engagement and told them that Pedro was here on a student visa, not a K-1 visa. When “The Family Chantel” (as Pedro calls them) finally found out the couple was engaged, things didn’t go well. They were convinced that Pedro was only here to “harvest the American dollar” and weren’t shy about letting him know it.

The last time we saw The Family Chantel and The Family Pedro, they were duking it out over the dinner table, with Chantel’s mom ripping the wig right off Pedro’s sister’s head!


According to TLC, viewers will get to “follow this unique modern family as they try to get past their differences and come together.”

This is the first of the “90 Day Fiance” spin-offs to focus on just one couple. According to E!, TLC will air a special called “Pedro & Chantel: The Full Story” on Monday, April 15. The actual show will air Monday nights starting in July on TLC.

  1. No surprise here. You could tell the family Chantal has been angling for a spinoff since the day the cameras showed up.

  2. Please spare us of any more pain of watching this couple and their family drama! Jell no we will not be watching would prefer to have fingernails jerked off!

    1. Fame seekers at their finest!! Both families can agree on one thing, they will play nice for the big TLC checks!! Of all the couples the pick these two? TLC must be desperate or dumb.

  3. COMPLETELY WRONG!!!! MONEY GRAB OR WHAT????? Get actual jobs people and dont support the negativity that family portrays…..wrong wrong wrong

  4. Pedro’s family are not the problem. I personally find Americans extremely rude and don’t know how to behave towards other cultures. You seem them in Europe sticking out from a mile because of the way they behave just loud and rude. American woman also act like spoiled brats expecting to be number one. The mother is always head of the family and you better respect her.

  5. It would be interesting to have a journalist dig into mother Pedro’s business a bit more. Wasn’t she basicly running some kind of fraudulent green card scheme?
    But TLC hired her again, haven’t they learned anything from the Duggars or Mama June? They probably don’t care.
    I bet there are some American victims that have a lot to say about mom’s ‘dating/ marriage service’.

    1. But if Mama Pedro puts some chicken feet on the table, Mama Chantal will hand off her earrings to Daddy Chantal and beat Mama Pedro down…

      Quite frankly, I don’t really care about who comes out on top of that showdown. I just enjoy watching them all get more stupider!

  6. I don’t know if I can stomach watching his sister every week. Hopefully she won’t be on everytime.

  7. I hope Pedro trademarked “The Family Chantel” so he can get the “American Dollar” ? who knew that fight with River would get them their own spin off ??

    1. Maybe they were hoping it would… After I saw how desperate Ashley, Jay, Colt, and Larissa were to get on the new show (despite all their problems being so public) I am not surprised anymore if some of this is ramped up to score thier own show

      1. Are we watching the same show?!? If Chantal and Pedro divorce, it will 100% be her family’s fault. They have ZERO boundaries and insert themselves into her marriage constantly! They need to back off, but they won’t because they are on tv. Same with his family.

        1. I feel like both families are the problem…Chantel needs to get her family in check, and Pedro needs to stop sending his family money and TV’s. Plus Chantel needs to stop telling her family about every bump in her marriage…The family Chantel already don’t like him, she honestly makes it worse for him every time she complains. I also really don’t like River. He’s such a moody, disrespectful brat.
