For those who can’t resist the allure of relationship drama unfolding on television, TLC has been the go-to channel. With shows like “90 Day Fiancé” and “The Family Chantel,” viewers have had a front-row seat to Pedro Jimeno’s personal rollercoaster of poor decisions, relationship issues, and family drama. While it may seem like there’s nothing left to uncover about Pedro, here are ten lesser-known facts that might surprise you.
1. A Unique Beginning for Pedro and Chantel
Pedro’s journey on “90 Day Fiancé” began with his introduction to Chantel Everett in season four. The two met when Pedro sought help in learning English, and a mutual friend connected him with Chantel. What started as a language exchange quickly blossomed into romance.
2. Pedro’s Dominican Roots
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, Pedro’s family still resides there. As his relationship with Chantel grew more serious, she frequently visited him in his home country. However, Pedro needed a K-1 visa to visit Chantel in the United States, which required them to marry within 90 days of its issuance. At the time, Pedro was 24, and Chantel was 25.
3. A Foundation Built on Lies
When a relationship begins with deception, it’s not a promising sign. Chantel lied to her family about Pedro’s visa, claiming he was coming to America on a student visa. When the truth came out, her family was understandably suspicious, questioning Pedro’s motives and intentions.
4. Chantel’s Parents Aren’t Fans of Pedro
Chantel’s deception didn’t help Pedro win over her parents. Their suspicions led them to hire a private investigator and demand a prenuptial agreement to protect Chantel’s assets. Pedro’s relationship with his in-laws was off to a rocky start, to say the least.
5. Pedro’s Family Disapproves, Too
The disapproval didn’t stop with Chantel’s family. Pedro’s mother and sister also expressed their disdain for his fiancée. Despite the mounting opposition, the couple decided to stick together. However, Pedro’s questionable decisions, like engaging in a provocative dance with his sister’s best friend, only added fuel to the fire.
6. Pedro’s Questionable Choices
Pedro’s poor decisions were on full display when he was caught dancing inappropriately with another woman during a trip home. This incident nearly derailed his relationship with Chantel, leaving many to wonder if they would survive as a couple.
7. Pedro’s Financial Support for His Family
Pedro’s habit of sending most of his money to his family in the Dominican Republic has been a point of contention with Chantel. She believes their dreams of homeownership in America will never come true if he continues to prioritize his family’s financial needs over their own.
8. A Graduation Trip with Ulterior Motives
When Chantel graduated from nursing school, Pedro took her to New York to celebrate. However, the trip’s true purpose was for Pedro to meet his sister’s boyfriend, who lived in the city. This revelation cast a shadow over what should have been a celebratory occasion.
9. Pedro’s Loyalty to His Mother and Sister
Time and again, Pedro has demonstrated that his mother and sister come first in his life. This unwavering loyalty has often left Chantel feeling like a second priority, casting doubt on the long-term viability of their marriage.
10. Pedro’s Attempt at Privacy
Despite his reality television fame, Pedro has managed to maintain a semblance of privacy. He’s careful not to share too much about his family or personal life outside of the show, which may be a wise decision for both him and Chantel.
