Why 90 Day Fiancé’s Liz Woods Gets Viewer Sympathy & Criticism


Liz Woods has annoyed many 90 Day Fiancé franchise fans, but some viewers also have sympathy for the long-suffering partner of Big Ed Brown.

Liz Woods and Big Ed Brown have one of the most controversial relationships in the extended 90 Day Fiancé franchise, and many viewers are split as to how they feel about Liz. Liz was introduced as a waitress whom Big Ed was pursuing back on 90 Day: The Single Life season 1. While some 90 Day Fiancé fans feel bad for Liz, others think she has become just as fame-hungry as the franchise villain himself.

Liz and Big Ed are currently continuing their 90 Day Fiancé franchise relationship saga on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7. The duo has been fighting often, with Big Ed revealing that he already dumped Liz eight times via text message, although she always returns to him. Reddit user u/iwillneverreadthiscr shared a photo of Liz and expressed both their sympathy for her and their confusion over Liz staying with Big Ed. “I feel bad for this poor woman… How do women fall into toxic, horrible situations all the time?” the user asked before speculating that Liz has very low self-esteem. Commenters were torn whether Liz had their sympathy or criticism due to her messy relationship drama with Big Ed.

Some 90 Day Fiancé Fans Feel Sympathy For Liz Woods

Many 90 Day Fiancé fans feel that Big Ed has too much control over his younger partner, and is trying to keep Liz dependent on and subservient to him. “Didnt he pressure her to dye her hair black? So weird,” u/koshenyakira wrote while other commenters added that Big Ed was pressuring Liz to lose weight as he seemed to control her. Sympathetic commenters noted how Liz seemingly came to depend on Big Ed. “She was in a financially unsafe situation with her ex, to the point she had to give up her son for a little while. She then learned the importance of money stability in a relationship and probably learned to find it attractive, to the point where she’s able to look past certain behaviors and accusations,” u/therealdilexpert wrote.

Other 90 Day Fiancé Fans Consider Liz As Bad As Big Ed

Although a number of 90 Day Fiancé franchise fans can understand how Liz ended up in her unhappy relationship, other 90 Day Fiancé franchise viewers believe Liz needs to break up with Big Ed. Some commenters faulted her for not standing up for herself and allowing the destructive cycle of their relationship to continue. Multiple commenters accused Liz of being a gold digger and user. “She’s with him for his money, but sometimes considers if it’s worth the money and tries to leave, but then she remembers he has money. She wants to marry him, then get a divorce for the paycheck. There, now you understand,” u/t*******ez27 speculated. “She clearly is desperately to find someone to spend her life with,” u/Unique_Ad732 noted before urging Liz to “get her life together,” especially since she has a daughter.

Whether or not they approve of Liz, 90 Day Fiancé fans cannot stand Big Ed. The franchise villain treats women rudely, has bad manners, and will seemingly do anything for some quick money or fame. Though many viewers are furious with TLC for continuing to cast Big Ed, the network appears to have no plans on cutting ties with him. However, many 90 Day Fiancé fans are confident that Angela Deem won’t be welcome back for new content given her abhorrent behavior on Happily Ever After season 7.
