90 Day Fiancé is known for its fame-seeking stars, some of whom have been called out by fans for caring more about their images than their partners or other loved ones. These cast members have gotten many negative labels, including selfish, gold digger, and clout chaser. These celebs have responded to such accusations in different ways, with some claiming that they are being labeled unfairly, and that things are different than they appear onscreen. Others embrace the accusations, however wild they are, and use them to boost their stardom.
Viewers have a low tolerance for those who mistreat their partners or utilize 90 Day Fiancé to get famous for bad behavior. These stars have mainly received criticism for their words and actions, but some have still received support from fans. There are those who have managed to redeem themselves in the eyes of the public, while others have fallen deeper into a metaphorical hole of public mistrust.
Here are three cast members who have been accused by viewers of being all style and no substance. Some have remained in the franchise, while others have moved on to other things. The court of public opinion’s jury is out, and the final judgment on these cast members is pending. Here’s why fans have made statements about these reality stars being fake.
When she first appeared in 90 Day Fiancé season 4, Anfisa was immediately labeled as a gold-digger. She openly admitted to being after her ex-husband Jorge for his money. The young star had already had several plastic surgery procedures done, and wanted more of the expensive operations and treatments. Fans initially wrote Anfisa off as an appearance-obsessed young woman who was using others to get what she wanted. However, the star, who was once accused of being all about her looks, is now more appreciated by fans. After divorcing Jorge while he was in prison, serving a sentence for trafficking marijuana, she evolved. She went on to graduate from business school, work as a personal trainer, and launch her own fitness app. Many fans see her as a reformed gold digger, who has grown up a lot since the show. She’s an independent woman who is supporting herself and thriving. However, some fans will always think she’s inauthentic.
Current 90 Day Fiancé season 9 star and musician Jibri Bell’s obsession with his style and appearance has seemed more important than his music and relationships. Though he has done plenty of work online with his band, The Black Serbs, he seems to be using the show as a way to get more famous. He recently made $28,000 selling a pair of pants that he ripped onscreen at the beginning of the season. While fans are aware of the young couple’s supposed financial woes, fans question Jibri’s priorities, as he and his fiancee Miona Bell spent most of their relationship (up until now) traveling and posting about their trips on Instagram. They did so in order to promote their personal brands. Viewers feel that Miona and Jibri have faked many of their fights and issues on the show, and wonder if Jibri is actually able to balance marriage and a music career. They think his obsession with appearances may get the better of him.
YouTuber Stephanie “fart jar” Matto is one of the most notorious 90 Day Fiancé cast members, due to her antics on and off the screen. She became a millionaire partly by selling her farts in a jar, before moving on to NFTs. Stephanie made her debut on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, when she went to visit her ex-girlfriend Erika Owens in Australia. Erika found that she was very different in person than how she had presented herself on YouTube, and in their online relationship. The disastrous trip left the couple at odds, and they split up right before Stephanie left. Fans have flocked to Erika’s side, as Stephanie was seen as uncaring. She admitted to being a 90DF clout chaser, pulling stunts online and on the show specifically to earn money and grow her fame. Stephanie also starred in 90 Day Fiancé: The Single Life season 2. While she initially comes across as a pretty and quirky girl, 90 Day Fiancé fans are tired of her schtick, and see Stephanie as a character more than an actual person.
