'The Family Chantel' Season 3 Episode 1 Fan Review: 'Delicious' drama wooes viewers
Family drama, relationship banter, fights and badmouthing families doesn't begin to cover any of the damge on this reality show
Let's start with all the chaos that went down on this episode. Chantel Everett celebrated her graduation and becoming a nurse after 10 years in med school. Soon after Chantel and Pedro Jimeno argue as to how much she's going to be earning hereon. Elsewhere, an explosive fight takes place between Pedro's sister Nicole and her mother about her still married boyfriend Alejandro and Royal Everett disappeared with his wife after their marriage. Needless to say, the hour-long premiere episode of 'The Family Chantel' Season 3 was packed with drama.
We see Chantel is all excited to finally be graduating. Her mother, Karen, is over the moon and goes all out to plan a full-fledged party to celebrate her graduation. Like Chantel doesn't hear enough about the time she took to complete school, Pedro straight-up asks her if she's going to earn the big bucks, just so that he can take it easy moving forward. Meanwhile, Chantel's sister, Winter, brings her boyfriend, Jah, to the party, while the air is tense with awkwardness after the Chantel family found out about his child. Meanwhile, Chantel's brother, Royal and wife Angenette are absconding after their marriage, deciding on forever after briefly knowing each other online. A very embarrassing incident of swearing and name-calling each other's families took place as the Chantels fly to the Philippines and we are clearly not over that episode.
Chantel's little sister, Winter Everett has even starred on '90 Day Fiance'. Winter has been dating her boyfriend Jah for five years now. Ironically, that's a long time to not know about a child that he has and is raising on his own. Both Karen (Chantel's mother) and Chantel herself pulls out verified documents to put Jah on the spot, who is obviously tongue-tied. Seeing all this, Winter is heartbroken, questions Jah and leaves the room, only to show up with said lover for her sister's intimate graduation party for family.
After watching the episode, fans couldn't stop talking about Karen, a fan said "Karen is such a fitting name for Chantel's mom". Another said, "Karen really showed up to royal's house with a damn flashlight #TheFamilyChantel". A fan tweeted, "Chantel and Pedro’s families are naturals in front of the camera and seriously love that fame #90dayfiance #thefamilychantel". Another said, "Cried laughing at Nicole's mom saying that Alejandro showed up at her house looking like an iguana with ripped jeans & spiked up hair #thefamilychantel". "It looks like #thefamilychantel is going to be a good season, Alejandro's hairdo hasn't improved, even Iguana's take care of their doooo better then Alejandro. BTW MUST we have to see that trash Coraima, she is only a friend to Nicole, we really don't need to see her", tweeted a fan.
More disgruntled viewers commented saying there was no need for a new season of the TLC show as they tweeted: "Whyyy is there another season of the family chantel .. that family is toxic and all drama." While there were some who found the drama 'delicious' and even thanked TLC for renewing the show: "@TLC thank you so much for season 3 of The Family Chantel. First episode delicious! #familychantel."
