Get a Sneak Peek of ‘The Family Chantel’ Season 2: Pedro Jimeno Turns to Muay Thai to Lose Weight

Pedro, getting pumped up (literally) for Sunday dinner with The Family Chantel.

Pedro Jimeno is getting back into fighting shape! (Dining room tables and family dinners, consider yourselves warned.)

In People’s sneak peek of the upcoming season of The Family Chantel, the 90 Day Fiancé star is seen working on his fitness after gaining “almost 40 pounds.” 

“My new hobby right now is Muay Thai because I gained like 40 pounds in three years in the United States,” Pedro reveals. “I love the American food. Eat this, eat that. … .”

In the clip, Pedro says Muay Thai has helped him drop about 25 pounds, adding that his wife Chantel Everett is a fan of his new fit physique. 

“Chantel loves how I look right now,” he says. “I’ve been so fat before, that I lost my six-pack.” 

“You hear that, the brother Chantel?”

Pedro has been documenting his Muay Thai journey on social media, frequently posting videos and photos of his workouts.  

Fans will get to see more of Pedro’s fitness journey on Season 2 of ‘The Family Chantel,’ which premieres next month. 

In addition to Pedro’s sweat sessions, the upcoming season will continue to follow Chantel, her parents, Karen and Thomas, and siblings Winter and River. In the sneak peek of the new season, viewers are also introduced to Chantel’s older brother, Royal, who has just returned home from the Philippines with his wife, Angenette, whom he met online. 

We’re gonna take a wild guess that those flowers weren’t from Karen.

To the surprise of no one, Chantel and her family are weary of Royal’s relationship and hesitant to welcome Angenette to the family. 

(Hmm… sounds familiar.)

We also see the return of Pedro’s sister Nicole and get a first look at her boyfriend Alejandro, whom Nicole and Pedro’s mother Lidia immediately dislikes. Shocker. 

See, if you would’ve read The Ashley’s Reality Roundup recaps, you’d know what you were walking into, Alejandro…

Season 2 of ‘The Family Chantel’ premieres Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.   Watch the sneak peek below!

  1. I was shocked when there was a FIRST season of ‘the family Chantal,’ I saw NO positive comments about the season on some of the 90DF pages I follow. How in the Sam hell did they get a SECOND season?! Are the same people that gave the OK the same people that continue to give the OK for Kim Biermann and her bratty, label obsessed, photoshopped brood (yes, she even photoshops the kids, she’s been caught doing it several times!) and their ridiculous show! Guess Kim needs a way pay the over 200k judgment AMEX has against her.
