90 Day Fiancé fans have been suspicious of some marriages from the start. Sometimes, viewers correctly predict which unions won’t go the distance.
The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has aired many sketchy relationships, but some couples went through with marriages, despite warning signs that things might get bumpy. While plenty of 90DF fans could see splits coming before duos married, that didn’t stop some cast members from hoping that things would work out. However, a lot of viewers were correct about sketchy marriages, as they often collapsed under suspicious circumstances.
When it comes to sketchy 90DF franchise marriages, viewers have often been suspicious of the foreign cast members. Many franchise fans have questioned their intentions, as they wondered if they were faking their attractions towards their partners to get to the United States. In some cases (such as with Anfisa Arkhipchenko and Jorge Nava), both halves of a couple agreed to a transactional relationship, even if it didn’t always work out. However, other marriages felt more duplicitous, although some American cast members seemed to let themselves be scammed by refusing to recognize red flags. On the other hand, there are 90 Day Fiancé fans who were wrong about certain marriages being sketchy.
Mohamed Jbali & Danielle Mullins
Mohamed Jbali and Danielle Mullins from 90 Day Fiancé season 2 are a classic example of a sketchy (albeit iconic) franchise couple. The Tunisian man and older American woman had a chaotic and messy relationship. It led to Mohamed not even wanting to kiss Danielle at their wedding, and taking off to Miami shortly after they tied the knot. Danielle infamously accused Mohamed of manipulating her, and branded her ex-husband a user, after he made it clear that their marriage was over. While Danielle threatened to have Mohamed deported, she made up with him years later. He used his short-lived marriage to start a life in the United States, which suggests that he might have been with Danielle to access that opportunity.
Luis Mendez & Molly Hopkins
Luis Mendez and Molly Hopkins from 90 Day Fiancé season 5 ended up being called out for having one of the most duplicitous franchise marriages, after fans accused Dominican Republic native Luis of scamming American mom, Molly. However, Molly was branded foolish for marrying the younger man, despite their absolutely chaotic and argumentative relationship. Luis and Molly ended up divorcing shortly after marrying, which led to Luis leaving, and marrying a woman in New Jersey, whom he’d met before the split. Many viewers suspected that he planned this all along, and used Molly, so that she would sponsor his visa. However, Molly ended up finding lasting love with Kelly Brown, while Luis got divorced.
Pedro Jimeno & Chantel Everett
Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett from 90 Day Fiancé season 4 just broke up on The Family Chantel season 4. While some The Family Chantel viewers eventually believed in the franchise couple, many viewers now think that Pedro planned to divorce Chantel from the start. Pedro’s attitude toward Chantel changed dramatically after he became financially stable, started his own career, and no longer needed her support to apply for permanent citizenship. Chantel was warned early on, by a mutual friend, that Pedro and his family wanted him to use an American for a Green Card. Now, viewers suspect that this might have been the case all along.
Blake Abelard & Jasmin Lahtinen
Blake Abelard and Jasmin Lahtinen from 90 Day Fiancé season 7 had few viewers who believed in their relationship. Many 90 Day Fiancé fans thought that Jasmine was using Blake, since her sister lived near him after she won the Green Card lottery. This made viewers highly suspicious of the Finnish woman, regarding her intentions with the American man. However, the 90 Day Fiancé couple has now been married for multiple years. It turns out that Jasmin’s feelings towards Blake were genuine.
Avery Mills & Omar Albakour
Like Blake and Jasmin, Avery Mills and Omar Albakour are one couple who proved their critics wrong. The duo appeared on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, and met on a Muslim dating app. This happened after American teen Avery converted to Islam, and met Syrian man, Omar. Viewers were convinced that Avery was being naive, and making a huge mistake when she traveled to Syria to meet and marry Omar. However, the duo is now one of the most beloved franchise couples. Avery and Omar made their relationship work while waiting for his visa, and now live together in the US, while working on achieving their career goals.
Usman Umar & Lisa Hamme
Lisa Hamme and Usman Umar are another Before the 90 Days duo, whom fans massively doubted. Unlike Avery and Omar, Usman and Lisa did not prove viewers wrong. The mismatched couple is currently divorced, after they split on terrible terms. Usman, who performs under the name Sojaboy, has been branded a charmer who is trying to get a Green Card. He is currently with Kimberly Menzies, another older American woman who is trying to marry him. Many 90 Day Fiancé franchise fans refuse to believe that Usman is anything other than a user who wants to live in America to further his singing career. Lisa can’t stand her ex-husband, and few fans listen to what the franchise villain has to say.
Yara Zaya & Jovi Dufren
Yara Zaya and Jovi Dufren are a current 90 Day Fiancé franchise couple who have viewers doubting their marriage. Yara and Jovi are airing their relationship on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7. On the show, Ukrainian mother Yara is doubting her life in the US, after receiving her Green Card, and traveling to Prague to see her mother. Yara is already wondering if she wants to remain in the US, now that she has the freedom to leave the country. Many viewers are torn, as some sympathize with Yara’s position, and others believe that she planned to use Jovi all along, so she could get ahead in life. 90 Day Fiancé fans who doubt Yara use her teenage reality TV videos as proof that she was always interested in swindling a rich, foreign man.
