The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has some clear villains, but there are also some unpopular personalities many viewers simply forgot about. The past seven years have seen some couples continue with happy marriages while others end in divorce. While some of the most normal and relatable couples have exited the franchise due to not delivering enough drama, other problematic pairs have been forgotten over the years.
When it comes to the current franchise couples, many have been criticized for delivering repetitive drama. Viewers are frustrated by the stale plotlines on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season six and would instead like to check in on some of the more low-key couples. At the same time, a number of dramatic couples have also exited the franchise. Refresh your memory on some of the more unpopular 90 Day Fiancé pairs who haven’t been in the spotlight as prominently. Do you remember these forgotten couples?
Evelyn Cormier and David Vázquez Zermeño appeared in season five. Though their nine-year age gap wasn’t unusual for the franchise, viewers nonetheless felt uncomfortable since Evelyn was only 18 when her Spanish fiancé joined her in the US. The couple gave off a nasty, smug, and stuck-up attitude, such as when they turned on Evelyn’s friend and asked her if she had ever been in love before. The couple argued over where they should live, with Evelyn’s equally stuck-up family thinking America was superior to Europe and the rest of the world. Meanwhile, Evelyn was focused on her music career that fans largely didn’t care about. She has since appeared on American Idol and the couple has remained married.
Nikki and Mark Shoemaker from season three have disappeared from the franchise and social media after they were ridiculed worldwide. The couple’s 39-year age gap made fans very uncomfortable, especially since 19-year-old Nikki was younger than all four of her husband’s adult children. Fans were made even more uncomfortable when Mark tried to give Nikki some clothing his daughter no longer wanted and infamously banned her from touching his car windows. After facing intense backlash, the couple tried to sue TLC for breaking promises. However, their lawsuit was eventually dismissed and the duo completely disappeared from the spotlight. Their current marital status is unconfirmed.
Tim Clarkson and Melyza Zeta from 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way currently offer lukewarm commentary on Pillow Talk. However, they are one franchise couple many viewers either forgot about or want to. After Texan Tim cheated on Melyza, his Colombian partner encouraged him to move around the world to be with her before revealing she had also been unfaithful. Despite their past, the couple got engaged this year. However, the majority of viewers find them to be deeply uninteresting to watch on TV.
Jason Hitch and Cássia Tavares from season two are one of the most forgotten franchise couples. The duo has since divorced and Jason was charged with domestic violence. Viewers disliked the relationship between the Floridian man and Brazilian woman. Jason was notoriously frugal and brought Cássia around to endless auctions, garage sales, and estate sales. Fans were turned off by his hoarding and were happy to see Cássia remarry after their divorce, as well as graduate from college. However, her relationship with Jason will not be missed by viewers.
Josh Strobel and Aleksandra Iarovikova appeared in season three after American Josh met his Russian partner while on a Mormon mission. Atheist Aleksandra then converted to Mormonism to be with her eventual husband. Fans disliked how Aleksandra had to change herself to be with Josh, as she previously enjoyed go-go dancing, drinking, and partying. Viewers were also uncomfortable by the fact that Josh tried to pass Aleksandra’s child off as biologically his, which caused some fans to question the validity of the couple’s relationship. However, other fans respect the couple’s privacy since they completely exited the spotlight. Josh and Aleksandra have remained married and are living in the United States.
Evelin Villegas and Corey Rathberger are another couple from The Other Way who viewers didn’t really like. The couple was known for their volatile relationship, which widely made them unlikeable among franchise fans. However, viewers leaned more towards disliking Evelin, who came across as demanding, selfish and immature. The couple split and were stuck in lockdown together in Evelin’s native Ecuador before revealing they were actually not just still together, but married. They currently operate a bar together in her hometown while Evelin enjoys prancing around on beaches most of the time. However, many viewers find her to be unlikeable and lacking substance.
Leida Margaretha and Eric Rosenbrook from season six are one of the most infamous couples in the franchise. However, some viewers might have blocked out their memory. Leida was notoriously ill-received, as viewers branded the Indonesian woman a compulsive liar. Fans were shocked when Leida kicked Eric’s teenage daughter out of the house and Eric backed his partner’s decision. To many viewers, Leida’s cruelty and bad attitude are unforgivable. The couple has faced domestic disturbances since their 90 Day Fiancé run, but they have stayed together.
Steven Frend from season six is one forgotten cast member who many fans disliked, though his partner was well-received. Steven’s partner, Olga Koshimbetova, was widely liked by fans, as the sweet Russian girl drew sympathy. However, American Steven was known for treating his pregnant partner extremely rudely with his verbal insults. He even berated Olga shortly after her C-section, which left many fans unhappy with the young father. The couple split over the years but are currently back together and raising their son Richie.
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? airs Sundays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
