90 Day Fiancé stars have various income streams. Cast members are holding down some unique jobs, which allow them to earn cash away from reality TV.
Some 90 Day Fiancé stars are earning cash, as people are supporting their ventures, and it’s time to talk about the way that these celebs earn money when TLC’s cameras aren’t rolling. It’s interesting to contemplate the salaries of 90 Day Fiancé cast members, although hard proof of how much they earn is hard to find. For example, there has been no confirmation yet, but it’s believed that cast members don’t earn very much money for participating in shows and spinoffs. If they do receive low pay, they’re giving a lot in exchange for embarrassing themselves in front of international audiences.
While 90 Day Fiancé might not pay much, it’s the perks that come from starring in the reality TV show that might make reality fame more appealing than a typical “nine to five” job. A smart cast member might leverage their 15 minutes of fame to stay in the limelight, by creating enough controversy to star in a new season or spin-off. Another scenario is that they begin to use their fame to drum up cash elsewhere. The franchise’s celebs have been making money in quite a few creative ways, whether they are currently in 90 Day Fiancé, or have exited the controversial franchise.
5. 90 Day Fiancé Cast Members Have Cameo Accounts
One of the biggest sources of income for 90 Day Fiancé stars is Cameo. Cast members can create Cameo accounts as soon as they’ve made their franchise debuts. That platform is a place where interested parties can connect with stars on a one-to-one basis, and prices vary. Cameo is where Darcey and Stacey Silva appear without makeup or filters, and Big Ed Brown is celebrated, rather than ridiculed. In 2021, it was reported that Big Ed earned big bucks one year, just by making solo Cameo videos. Usman Umar AKA Sojaboy once claimed his lifetime earnings from Cameo were extremely high, but his claims were questioned.
4. 90 Day Fiancé Cast Members Start Businesses
90 Day Fiancé stars are mocked for their ridiculous onscreen behavior, but they often reap rewards when they launch their businesses. Jibri Bell recently claimed his wife Miona is now a millionaire within less than a year of launching her ponytail brand. She sells hair extensions. Yara Zaya was quick to launch her online fashion store, after she was recognized for her sense of style. Yara soon launched another business with a cosmetics focus. Although she was accused of drop-shipping, Yara’s lavish lifestyle seems to point to success.
Big Ed also used his notoriety to start an online store, where he sells everything from t-shirts to mugs to fanny packs. The mechandise features his most iconic lines from 90 Day Fiancé, or cartoon depictions of his face. Like Ed, his ex Rose Vega has a store featuring t-shirts. Corey Rathgeber and Evelin Villegas own a restaurant and a bar in Engabao, Ecuador. Thais Ramone sells bikinis that she has sourced from Brazil. Tiffany Franco launched a makeup line after her 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way appearance. Julia Trubkina trains dogs in Virginia, and Steven (with Alina Johnston) launched a tour business in Turkey.
3. 90 Day Fiancé Cast Members Become Influencers
Then there are the 90 Day Fiancé stars making it big as influencers. From weight loss teas to jewelry to photo frames for all, these cast members can sell anything. Yara may have two successful businesses of her own, but she’s also an influencer with over 680k followers. Yara uses IG stories to promote brands. Loren Brovarnik is using her sudden post-baby weight loss to sell the Jenny Craig diet program to her followers. Her other Instagram posts and stories are sponsored, and Loren promotes haircare, beauty brands, and more. Even if a certain cast member may have not slimmed down, they may try to sell weight loss gummies.
These before-and-after weight loss photos of 90 Day Fiancé stars aren’t always convincing, but that’s never stopped the influencers from hawking them. Some, like Ariela Weinberg, talk about fillers and Botox. There are certain times when these TLC stars are accused of running scams on their profiles, where they claim to, “giveaway” designer bags or cash. Some of the bigger stars (with plenty of influencing power at the moment) are Winter Everett, Natalie Mordovtseva, and Rose. Natalie recently promoted an e-bike service shop, a salon, and sleepwear.
2. 90 Day Fiancé Cast Members Create Adult Modeling Content
It was 90 Day Fiancé star Stephanie AKA Stepanka Matto who first started claiming her OnlyFans income was $900k. She shared “proof” with her fans in August 2020. Stephanie soon launched her own competing platform, Unfiltrd, for adult content creators. It’s now used by stars such as Yohan Geronimo, Biniyam Shibre, etc. At Unfiltrd, they share their own NSFW content, and make money. After she underwent her infamous $72,000 head-to-toe plastic surgery makeover, Larissa Lima decided to do an oil show that got her fired from 90 Day Fiancé. However, Larissa apparently earned over $100,000 from the one-hour show, via CamSoda.
With Stephanie, Larissa, and even Anfisa Arkhipchenko Nava being the trendsetters in the adult content category, several other cast members also followed suit. Stephanie ended up making a fortune by selling her fart jars online, which made her an Internet sensation. Syngin Colchester, along with his new girlfriend, are also NSFW content makers. Tania Maduro recently launched a raunchy calendar, while Paul Staehle and Karine Martins are also back together to create objectionable videos, and sell them on OnlyFans. In 2020, Colt Johnson shockingly launched an OF account with disturbing photos of himself. He was covered in foam, or whipped cream, which looked like underwear.
1. 90 Day Fiancé Cast Members Have Successful Careers
Not all successful 90 Day Fiancé cast members rely on the show to help them find jobs. Some are also making good money without having to depend on their reality TV fame. While The Family Chantel’s Chantel Everett’s marriage to Pedro Jimeno died a slow death, her career is on the rise. Chantel was studying to become a nurse while she was starring in 90 Day Fiancé, and is now apparently earning good money. Chantel is now working hard to make more cash, as she explores a new job, travel nursing. Another cast member who already had an exciting job before joining the show is Jovi Dufren.
Jovi’s job as an ROV supervisor created issues between him and Yara, with him being away from home for many months, but it did seem to pay well. Paola Mayfield became a pro wrestler whose ring name was Paola Blaze. She’s also a nutritionist and a Zumba instructor. Juliana Custodio, Rishi Singh, and Fernanda Flores are working as professional models. Pedro, Andrei Castravet, Bilal Hazziez, and Kara Rojer have jobs in real estate, which may support their lavish lifestyles. Brandon Gibbs works as a full-time pest control technician, the stylish Nicole Sherbiny runs a thrift store, and 90 Day Fiancé star Molly Hopkins owns LiviRae Lingerie.
