90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Caleb Greenwood invited a bit of trouble after claiming he relates to cast member Jesse Meester the most. Caleb showed plenty of red flags on the 90 Day Fiancé even before he flew to Turkey to meet Russian girlfriend Alina Kasha for the first time. TLC viewers have had a bad feeling about Caleb and Alina’s relationship since they saw him insisting he wants to pick her up and doubted her friend Elijah’s presence on their trip.
Caleb and Alina met each other in 2008 when she sent him a Facebook friend request so she could practice English. The couple lost touch over time, but Caleb came across Alina 13 years later on Tinder when he planned to visit Russia. COVID-19 foiled this plan, but Caleb and Alina will be meeting face to face in Turkey, while she keeps worrying about how he will react to her appearance in person. Alina doesn’t want to be treated differently due to her diagnosis of diastrophic dysplasia. However, to 90 Day Fiancé viewers, Caleb seems to be the kind of person who’ll make Alina feel unconformable, because he’s self-absorbed and not prepared to date a girl with a disability.
Popular 90 Day Fiancé YouTubers kiblz and Master of BlackJack gave an exclusive behind-the-scenes look to viewers via their latest video collaboration. They reached out to cast members such as Mike, Jasmine, Alina, and course Caleb to ask them a series of questions on their new Cameo pages. At one point, the cast members were asked to name their favorite and least favorite 90 Day Fiancé characters. To this, Caleb replied saying he’s only watched a few seasons of Before the 90 Days, but he feels like he “can relate to Jesse a lot.” Caleb explained that a lot of people say Jesse is “an a****le.” However, he personally feels like that is unfair. While Caleb thinks “Darcey is a beautiful person,” he maintains that personally, he is “much less drama inclined.”
According to Caleb, relationships where the other person is “very dramatic” would stress him out. This is why Jesse is Caleb’s favorite 90 Day Fiancé cast member. “I can relate to Jesse. He’s probably one of my favorite for that reason,” Caleb added. However, it’s also Caleb’s introduction in the video that has rubbed viewers the wrong way. He started by saying, “So you know me from the recent season of Before the 90 Days. I’m there with little Alina.” Reddit user AshtonKechamall shared the same clip of Caleb and captioned it, “I knew he was a d**che.” Another user, McVinney512, commented, “Ugh but not surprising. The opening scene of him running in the desert followed by a serving of word salad from him didn’t give me high hopes.”
90 Day Fiancé viewer BulliesTattoos replied to the post as well, commenting, “’Little’ Alina? ‘Most relate to Jesse’? I knew this a****le was an a****le.” Others claimed Caleb has found a terrible role model in Jesse, who’s been called self-centered, egotistical, and narcissistic by viewers. Even on Jesse’s current stint on 90 Day: The Single Life, he’s pretentious and rude while dating Jeniffer Tarazona. It’s possible Caleb wants to establish himself as a villain of the season, but it could be that he feels Jesse was wronged in the relationship. Either way, it could mean Caleb and Alina’s storyline on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days will be a dramatic affair.
