TLC's 90 Day Fiancé is easily one of the best shows on the program. Who doesn't want to watch two love birds rush to get married in 90 days so one of them can gain U.S. citizenship? It's obviously a fairytale waiting to happen.
And in the case of Chantel and Pedro, who are easily one of the best 90 day couples, their fairytale did not disappoint. It came with love, drama, and even more drama. However, for those of you who are new to Chantel and Pedro's whirlwind romance, here are ten facts about the 90 day lovers:
10 Chantel and Pedro Will Be on 90 Fiancé: Happily Ever After?
TLC really knows how to bring the suspense, don’t they? So the teaser for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Came out earlier this year and to every true fans delight, Chantel and Pedro are back on our TV screens. With that said, they didn’t disappoint. Chantel and Pedro brought all the drama that we’ve come to expect from them in this 15 second teaser, and we honestly can’t wait for the show to premiere this April.
There was so much going on in this teaser with no time to process it, and we just hope this is not where it ends for Chantel and Pedro.
9 Pedro is Seen Dancing with Another Woman
So let’s break this down a second. The 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After teaser shows us two things for sure: 1. Chantel’s mom still hates Pedro and is ready for her daughter to move on, and 2. Pedro was seen dancing rather inappropriately with another woman. This leads us to assume Chantel’s mom breaks out her taser to avenge her daughter’s honor, or at least use this as an opportunity to prove her point. Is Pedro the opportunist she always thought he was? Nonetheless, Pedro has some explaining to do about his newly found dance partner, and some choice dance moves.
8 Chantel and Pedro are STILL Married
This journey on 90 Day Fiancé has been a wild one for Chantel and Pedro, but despite all the drama in the mere 15 second teaser, the one thing that is clear to me, is that Chantel and Pedro are STILL married. There was so much speculation about their relationship falling apart last year that it didn't look certain they were going to make it. However, this teaser confirms they are still together no matter how rocky or criticized the relationship is.
With that being said, we just hope they can keep this thing together. Gotta root for these two.
7 Chantel Doesn't Like Pedro Sending His Family Gifts
If you remember watching the season finale tell-all for 90 Day Fiance season 4, then you know that Chantel isn’t too happy about Pedro feeling obligated to send money back to his family in the Dominican Republic and in some ways, she can't be blamed. Seriously Pedro, you can send more money to your family but you can’t take my girl out on a date? You have got to do better. Chantel claims she has no other issue with him sending money to his family but seeing how his mom and sister have treated Chantel, it’s hard to believe there isn’t more to the story. The new season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After is going to be wild. The calendar is marked.
6 Chantel and Pedro's Families Don't Like Each Other
Anybody who tuned in to season four of 90 Day Finance knows the drama that surrounds Chantel and Pedro. Like your modern-day Romeo and Juliet story, these two star-crossed lovers have families who dislike each other, to say the least. Chantel’s family thinks Pedro is an opportunist, and from the look of it, Pedro’s family isn’t too fond of Chantel either. Sounds to me like 90 days might not have been enough for these families. Love wins over everything else though, so we're totally here for Chantel and Pedro’s relationship.
We just hope their families can learn to like each other someday.
5 Chantel Lied to Her Family About Being Engaged to Pedro
Yeah that’s right, she lied, and has been paying for it ever since. Being that Chantel and her family are so close, it’s hard to believe she lied to them about something so monumental as being engaged, but when we first met Chantel, this is where her ongoing drama begins. Why did you have to lie Chantel? However, Chantel was talking to her mom about Pedro, and in this scene she’s wearing a ring. Surely any mom is asking questions when they see their daughter with a ring on her finger?
4 Chantel Tricked Her Family into Being on 90 Day Fiancé
So after going to the Dominican Republic despite her family’s fears, Chantel, gets engaged, doesn’t tell her family and then tricks them into filming a reality show. Wow Chantel, have to admire your boldness. According to an interview Chantel did with The Atlanta Journal Constitution, “once Pedro's visa was approved, she convinced her parents she was doing some other unnamed reality TV show to get them on camera.” Chantel claims “they were suspicious”. Girl, we would be too. However,Chantel is a go-getter and nothing comes in the way of true love. She just should have told someone something.
3 Pedro Proposed After Chantel's Third Trip to DR
These guys don’t waste any time do they? For those of you who are new to 90 Day Fiancé, the K-1 visas the fiancé’s obtain from the United States Government mandate that the couple must meet in person to receive the visa. Luckily for Chantel and Pedro, no body of water was going to stop true love. On Chantel’s third trip to Pedro’s homeland the Dominican Republic, Pedro proposed to his now wife and the whirlwind engagement commenced. We all locked in for 14 episodes and just prayed these two and their families made it to the big day.
2 Chantel Lived With Her Parents Before She Met Pedro
Clearly Chantel is the type of girl who goes for what she wants. She was living with her parents while studying to be a nurse, and she still found the time to take Spanish lessons. You go girl. However, we were surprised to learn that she had never lived with anyone before moving in with Pedro. Like woah girl, do you really know this guy?
He could be crazy. Thankfully as time went on, we got to see their relationship unfold and we became a little less skeptical of their living situation. Now if the families could just get it together...
1 Chantel and Pedro Met Through a Mutual Friend
We all know the premise of 90 Day Fiancé is that these couples meet, fall in love, and marry, all in a matter of months. Knowing that, Chantel and Pedro are easily a favorite among the 90 Day couples. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they met through a mutual friend when Chantel was looking for a Spanish teacher. Their story turns into a real-life fairytale as Pedro, who was also looking to learn English seemed like the perfect candidate. Little did Chantel know, Pedro would soon go on to be the love of her life, her 90 Day Fiancé, and later her husband.
Well... hopefully editing got the best of them in that teaser for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. What other facts do we need to know about Chantel and Pedro? Tell us in the comments!
