Much of The Family Chantel audience believes that Pedro’s reaction to Chantel taking the money is deeply concerning. They believe his callous manner in addressing Chantel’s feelings and concerns paired with the way he is treating her are painting the picture of a user.

The Family Chantel viewers react to Pedro Jimeno’s behavior on the last episode
The Family Chantel fans and critics flocked to Twitter to express their thoughts on what they saw from Pedro during the latest episode.
One person remarked, “It’s funny how Pedro was ready to ignore Chantel’s calls, pleas to stay together, etc but the moment the money was taken out of the bank account he’s acting like a bounty hunter trying to find/talk to her lmfao he’s a joke.”
Another critic shared, “I believe he played chantel this whole time until he felt comfortable enough to live in the U.S. and could take money from her when they divorce. Chantel I hope you get everything you deserve. Pedro is a piece of s**t like his family.”
Someone else slammed, “It’s actually hilarious to see Pedro running around town like a chicken with his head cut off over money. He didn’t fight this hard for his marriage. We see what his real intentions are.”
Yet another viewer commented, “Pedro casually forgets to mention he took $5000 from the account without telling Chantel and was likely going to take more. By his logic, he ‘stole’ too then.”
