Those who follow 90 Day Fiancé know the show can sometimes feel scripted and calculated, leading to some of the fakest moments in the history of the franchise. Finding love is hard enough, but when you have distance and TLC cameras, it can make the adventure downright impossible. Sometimes adding a little drama to the storyline is the only way the talent can make it through the season.
Since January of 2014, 90 Day Fiancé has been captivating audiences, and while there are a few success stories, the show often leads to a broken heart. The main show has produced eight seasons, though there are similar spinoffs as well. Cameras follow couples who have applied for or already received their K-1 visas. The catch is each couple must marry within the 90-day time frame in order to be able to stay in the United States legally. Most viewers are well aware that some of the couples meet while on trips or online, proving that love isn’t always close by.
90 Day Fiancé is always a hot-button topic since the series can produce so much drama. As the show has evolved, TLC viewers have been questioning its validity as some feel it is faked and highly scripted in order to produce high ratings. While the couples are real people, sometimes a producer may ask them to repeat a line or two. Below are the fakest moments in the history of the franchise.
Chris’ Creepy Question For Annie
While David and Annie are now fan favorites, there was a moment when an awkward question was asked. Viewers will recall the couple met while David was traveling around Thailand after a bad divorce. Sadly, David didn’t have all his ducks in a row when it came to earning money and would often borrow some from his friend, Chris Thieneman. During an awkward encounter, Chris asked Annie if she would pay him back with a “massage.” Viewers instantly thought he meant a special massage. Later on, David revealed production had asked Chris to talk to Annie in hopes of pushing their storyline further. However, no amount of explanation could make that question less creepy.
Deavan’s Fight With Jihoon
It wasn’t a surprise to see Deavan lose her cool with Jihoon Lee since the entire season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way showed the couple’s relationship deteriorating and heading for divorce. While Jihoon was always looked at as a failure, Deavan’s freak out when Jihoon let go of Drascilla’s hand-cast her in a whole new light. As viewers will recall, Drascilla was a terror and slipped her hand out of her step-father’s as she ran around on the dark street. In the end, Drascilla was fine, but Deavan’s amount of tears for the situation didn’t add up.
Production had actually spliced two scenes together. Deavan was lecturing her husband after Drascilla ended up on a busy street because Jihoon was on his phone. While it may have been dramatic, the moment between Deavan and Jihoon ultimately just left viewers confused.
Lisa’s Hidden Footage
During Lisa and Usman’s Tell-All reunion, Usman accused his wife of calling him a revolting word during an argument. Viewers were a bit confused since there had never been a scene showing this particular argument. Lisa was known to be volatile, but it didn’t quite add up. It turns out TLC editors left a lot on the cutting room floor. In a leak to beat all leaks, viewers were able to watch nine hours of raw footage which miraculously had the altercation Usman spoke of. Needless to say, 90 Day Fiancé has produced a lot of great moments, but it is important to remember things are not always as they appear.
