"I'm here at the gym. Taking Muay Thai classes," he tells his family.

"I'm all muscle," he says with a laugh, showing off his muscles to the camera.

As the clip comes to an end, Lidia asks, "Pedro, tell me, how is Chantel?"

Fans first met Pedro and Chantel on the fourth season of 90 Day Fiancé. Cameras then followed them and their families for two seasons of TLC’s spinoff 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After.

Pedro moved from the Dominican Republic to Atlanta on a K-1 visa after they secretly got engaged following a brief romance.

Throughout season 1 of The Family Chantel, Chantel’s family was suspicious of Pedro’s intentions because the couple had lied to them about bringing him over via the K-1 visa process.

Season 2 of TLC’s The Family Chantel premieres Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
