The Family Chantel has introduced viewers to Chantel Everett’s family. Here’s what we know about the reality celeb’s father, Thomas Everett.
TLC’s The Family Chantel has kept viewers coming back for more, with four drama-filled seasons so far. The show introduced fans to the families of 90 Day Fiancé stars Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno. The two stars, alongside their families in the TLC show, are allowing viewers into their personal lives. As the series progresses, fans have been curious to learn more about Chantel’s father, Thomas Everett.
Chantel and Pedro have risen to fame through the success of their hit spin-off show. They first appeared on 90 Day Fiancé season 4, when Pedro arrived in the States from his native Dominican Republic. He came on a K-1 visa, expecting to marry Chantel, something she kept hidden from her unsuspecting family. Once they discovered Chantel’s plans to marry, her family became suspicious of his intentions, especially after they learned more about Pedro’s backstory, and he petitioned for his mom and sister to join him in Atlanta. Chantel and Pedro’s mothers don’t get along, and Pedro’s sister Nicole hates Chantel. Things only got worse when Chantel threw a drink at Nicole, and a friend that she tried to set Pedro up with.
Thomas Everett Is Relatively Unknown
With most of the family always in the middle of a dramatic meltdown, one person who appears to keep their cool is the family patriarch, Thomas. He is his wife’s number one supporter. When Karen Everett accused Pedro of using her daughter to gain citizenship, Thomas was right by her side, as noted by In Touch Weekly. Together, they accused their son-in-law of “harvesting” the American dollar by living in the U.S. with Chantel, while working and sending money back home to his family in DR. In addition, they claimed that Pedro’s relatives were also using Chantel to, “take advantage of an American and the American dollar.”
Other than his unwavering support for his wife, very little is known about Thomas Everett. The same can’t be said for the rest of the family, who have no problem airing their dirty laundry on TV. Fans of the show see the family dynamic Chantel has with her parents and her three siblings, Royal Wylie, Winter, and Riverknight Everett. Royal returned to Atlanta after marrying his wife, Angenette, who is from the Philippines. The couple has matched Chantel and Pedro in the marital woes department. Additionally, Winter opened up this season about her choice to not celebrate Christmas, and her desire to get back with her estranged boyfriend, Jah, despite learning about his secret child last season. Winter has had tension with her sister and family, over their views on her relationship with Jah.
Meanwhile, on Pedro’s side of the family, his sister Nicole introduced her boyfriend Alejandro, whom Pedro appears to be a fan of, after learning that he’s legally married to another woman. It’s safe to say that The Family Chantel has more than enough craziness going on to keep fans tuned in for another season.
