The 90 Day Fiancé franchise is filled with plenty of cast members who hope to capitalize on their TLC fame, but numerous franchise personalities hold jobs outside of social media. Some featured cast members over the years, such as David Murphey and Russ Mayfield, impressed franchise fans with their high-income jobs. Multiple 90 Day Fiancé franchise cast members have pursued surprising careers outside of reality TV.
A popular trend among 90 Day Fiancé cast members, especially those in later seasons, is to become an influencer. Many featured franchise personalities hope to cause drama on the show to boost interest in their social media presence. This allows for them to have more interested followers who are curious about keeping up with their lives. Many 90 Day Fiancé cast members then launch paid platforms such as OnlyFans or Cameo to make money from their followers. Numerous cast members sell merchandise or partake in paid advertisements, while some also land their own spin-off shows or continue in the franchise.
Despite many 90 Day Fiancé cast members hoping to be influencers, a surprising number of featured franchise stars also hold respectable careers. Many reality celebs have received higher educations, while multiple stars work in medical fields. Other cast members have started their own businesses and pursued their dreams. Many featured personalities are thriving in their careers, though it is often their dramatic relationship issues that have been highlighted in TLC content. However, many 90 Day Fiancé fans actually find the real careers of featured cast members more interesting than their sometimes staged drama.
Some 90 Day Fiancé franchise cast members dabble in modeling or share photos on adult websites, but season 7 star Juliana Custodio has an international modeling career under her belt. Juliana is represented by Time Model International, as well as Women Management NY and Milano. She also is a Bang Energy elite ambassador. Juliana has appeared in multiple advertisements, including some for Solstice Magazine. Juliana has stated that she can’t wait to regain her pre-pregnancy figure and get back into modeling since giving birth. Her Instagram profile is filled with many of her modeling and high fashion snaps.

Anna Campisi made headlines this year when she started offering new mothers soap made out of their own breast milk to provide a gentle way for them to wash their babies.

He uses influence from his home country as well as multiple European countries to inspire his work. Many franchise fans were unaware that Mursel was such a gifted carpenter.

Before Molly debuted on 90 Day Fiancé season 5 with her ex-husband Luis Mendez, Molly and Cynthia starred on Double Divas.

However, Jovi held down a respectable job as an underwater mechanics engineer. Jovi used to have to travel for extra periods of time, including when Yara was pregnant with their daughter Mylah. However, Jovi decided to change his job once he became a father and no longer wished to be away from home for potential months at a time.
