The show’s subject itself is captivating enough as it follows the situation of a couple, who are figuring out issues in their long-distance relationships. All the couples consist of one US citizen and their foreign partner, who has been given a K-1 visa.
With the number of people looking for love overseas, there are bound to be a few gloomy secrets that only the die-hard fans of the show know. Today, we have come up with the list of five things you may not have known about 90 Day Fiancé.
Criminal history of cast members
One of the cast members with a shady past is Danielle Mullins, who had several run-ins with the law. She was charged with forgery as well as stealing and using an unknown person’s credit card. Her husband, Mohamed also accused her of using his credit card without his knowledge and opening an account in his name. If that wasn’t enough, she stole his money on several occasions. Allegedly, she also has been arrested for driving under the influence.
Another fan-favorite cast member, Jorge also doesn’t come clean when it comes to the police record. He was arrested for possession of marijuana before it was legalized. And even after it was legalized, he got himself in trouble after illegally transporting marijuana despite being an owner of a medical marijuana dispensary.
Mohamed asked for Anfisa’s phone number
After the end of his tumultuous relationship with Danielle, Mohamed was looking for a new woman while trying to avoid threats of deportation from his ex-wife. Though his few relationships were documented on the show and his two-timer behavior was quite familiar among fans, one lesser-known attempt by him was tweeted by the network itself. “Mohamed asked producers for Anfisa’s number after filming,” wrote TLC. The Tunisian was trying to get some quality time with the recently single Anfisa, after a reunion for Happily Ever After. The producers humbly declined the offer but, it showed who Mohamed really was.
Father of Aleksandra’s and Josh’s child
This was one of the most controversial moments of the entire five seasons of the show. Viewers had suspicions about Aleksandra’s and Josh’s baby’s father over the skin complexion of the baby. While Aleksandra and Josh both are of fair complexion, their child was born with dark skin tone and has curly dark hair. The couple refusing to show the face of the child on the show and social media fueled the suspicions even more. Both of the couple’s parents are also light skinned expect for Aleksandra’s stepdad, a dark-skinned Cuban man.
Anfisa and Jorge met on cam site
One of most talked about couples of the show, Anfisa and Jorge claimed that they first met each other through Facebook. But, it became a subject of debate after allegations arose that the couple met on a cam site and that Anfisa was an adult model. Whether or not Jorge met her through the aforementioned way isn’t clear. But it is more likely that she was into adult modeling. Alongside the reports of podcaster Stevie Ryan discovering her 51-minute X-rated tape online, her revelation of her dream to be a Playboy model makes us quite sure about her dark past.
Minimum cast salary
While some of the other reality stars of TLC received a hefty paycheck of around $40,000 per episode, 90 Day Fiancé cast got only $7000 for the whole season. Still, there’s an exception, this amount is only for an American citizen, not their foreign partner. After the first season, the amount was increased to $4000 per episode, and the condition applies there too. How mean is that? The network was making millions of dollar from the show, but cast members were given next to nothing.
