Once Season 3 of The Family Chantel ended, the proof came out that Pedro’s storyline on the show was manufactured, leaving fans skeptical of the narratives within the upcoming fourth season.
Season 4 of The Family Chantel will primarily focus on Chantel and Pedro’s deteriorating relationship as they enter their fifth year of marriage.
Evidence of the fraud from Season 3 came by way of a photo. Pedro was trying to find answers about his absent father and his father’s other family on the show. In doing so, he met with his half brothers for the alleged first time.
However, a photo taken in 2014 showed Pedro, Chantel, and Pedro’s sister Nicole Jimeno, alongside his two half brothers smiling.
The Family Chantel viewers feel like their trust in the show’s authenticity has been broken. They spoke out in the comments of 90 Day Fiance’s Instagram post featuring an upcoming clip of a fight between Chantel and Pedro.
