Some 90 Day Fiancé cast members have received backlash on social media for their antics this year. The famous reality TV show has featured many controversial people since its premiere in January 2014. One example is Big Ed Brown, who angered many fans for mistreating his former girlfriend, Rose Vega. The 58-year-old became the ultimate villain of the franchise in just one season and continued to shock fans with his actions over the years. In 2022, Ed even accused his current partner, Liz Woods, of being a lesbian at their engagement party.
Larissa Lima is another cast member who has done and said many controversial things on the show. She emotionally abused her ex-husband, Colt Johnson, and disrespected his mother, Debbie Johnson. She flushed her wedding ring down the toilet and was seen as immature. Anfisa Arkhipchenko also irritated many with her abusive behavior toward Jorge Nava. She told him to pay her money for being his wife and divorced him when he went to jail. Like these old cast members, some new people have also received criticism for their on-screen actions.
8 Mary Demasu-ay
The obsessive relationship between Mary Demasu-ay and Brandan Denuccio has made many uncomfortable. The two stayed connected on the phone 24/7 and never gave each other personal space. While both cast members had a terrible approach toward their relationship, Mary was mostly called out for her immaturity. Since Brandan has survived an attempted suicide, Mary was criticized for making him go through mental exhaustion. Seeing Brandan craving Mary’s trust and wishing to lead a normal life with her was heartbreaking.
7 Violet Tuyet
Violet Tuyet and Riley Diego’s mutual toxic behavior has caused a lot of backlash online. Riley didn’t know how to show his love, and Violet didn’t know how to be respectful. While the two were equally terrible for each other, the Vietnamese woman was certainly the worst. Violet was rude to Riley the moment he landed in Vietnam. She prioritized other things over him, acted shady, and demeaned his efforts. According to Instagram fan page 90_Days_Or_Life, many said Violet was “all about the money” and called her out on social media for being “annoying and unappealing in every way.”
6 Amanda Wilhelm
When Amanda Wilhelm and Razvan Ciocoi were on 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days, most expected Razvan to be the villain. Razvan was considered shady for dating an American widow, likely using her to come to the United States to follow his acting ambitions. However, the perception changed after the pair finally met. While Razvan showed real emotions, Amanda seemingly abused him emotionally and made him feel inferior. The single mom constantly compared Razvan to her late husband, Jason. She made fans so angry that they called her out for her immaturity on social media. Social media user 90dayfiance.news.and.memes said, “girl, go back to high-school where you belong.”
5 Angela Deem
Angela Deem is one of the most controversial 90 Day Fiancé cast members. In 2021, she was called out for her erratic behavior after her gastric sleeve procedure, and in 2022, she was criticized for destroying Michael Ilesanmi’s car. This year, Angela got in Liz Woods’ face while filming 90 Day: The Last Resort. According to a video posted by Merry Pants, Angela also got into a physical altercation with one of her friends at a hotel. After watching the video, many fans wanted Angela fired once again.
4 Jasmine Pineda
Jasmine Pineda was the MVP of her season when she debuted in 2022. Unfortunately, the mom of two ruined her reputation when she made her return on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 5. Jasmine lied to her American fiancé, Gino Palazzolo, numerous times in 2023. Despite that, Gino stayed with her and tried his best to get her a K-1 visa so she could come to the United States. Sadly, Jasmine still didn’t respect his gesture and instead began publicly criticizing his home state as soon as she landed in the U.S.
3 Daniele Gates
Like Jasmine, Daniele Gates has ruined her social media image by challenging viewers, being a hypocrite, and acting like a narcissist. Over the months, viewers have called out the New York native for mistreating her husband, Yohan Geronimo. However, Danielle has continually claimed she’s not the villain in their story. In October (via 90sipsofrealitea), Daniele shared how Yohan is the “monster” in their relationship, which many viewers questioned. A social media user commented, “she told him they were doing the k-1 and then changed it.” Another called her out and wrote, “she sounds ridiculous.”
2 Karine & Paul Staehle
The terrible on-and-off relationship between Karine and Paul Staehle has been annoying over the years. However, their relationship went overboard when the former couple reunited in 2023 and visited Disneyland. A fan page, More Biggy, posted a picture of Paul and Karine from the adventure park, calling them out for enjoying their lives after losing their kids to the CPS. Many social media users shared how angry they felt about Paul and Karine’s actions. Someone even wrote, “I hope they never get their kids back.”
Shekinah Garner and Sarper Güven are the newest couple to receive hate on social media. While Shekinah and Sarper were never really liked for their personalities, things boiled over in October. According to Merry Pants, Sarper and Shekinah defamed their costar, Holly Weeks, and made fun of her insecurities. Shekinah criticized Holly’s nails, while Sarper insinuated Holly was poor. After seeing the new pair’s awful comments, fans discussed how no other 90 Day Fiancé franchise cast member has been as rude to their peers as they have.
