The 90 Day Fiance franchise is about more than relationships. It’s also about over-the-top cast members who love to stir up a bit of trouble.
The 90 Day Fiancé franchise focuses on international romance, and we’re here to discuss current and former cast members who are more than willing to stir things up on and offscreen. Like any reality TV franchise, the 90 Day Fiancé empire is rife with theatrical cast members who cause a ruckus. The past seven years of franchise content have established a number of over-the-top cast members as reality stars who love stirring the pot. As the more genuine franchise couples settle down (and sometimes leave TLC), the dramatic singles and couples often continue to showcase their antics. Some are accused of creating drama on purpose.

The 90 Day Fiancé franchise has largely departed from its original premise of exploring the K-1 visa process. Now, the franchise is centered on ongoing relationships between franchise couples. It also focuses on singles who are looking for love. This evolved focus has led to a number of fights that went too far, as well as the demise of certain relationships. One of the recurring sources of arguments and fan criticism is the endless drama. Jealousy, miscommunication, cultural differences, and the need for attention and relevancy have caused numerous franchise personalities to act out on the show and on social media. Viewers often make villains out of the dramatic cast members and praise those who are able to remain calm in the face of chaos.
Larissa Lima And Eric Nichols
Larissa Lima made a loud debut on season 6 as she clashed with her then-husband Colt Johnson’s family. When she debuted with Eric Nichols on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, the new couple was primed to bring the drama. Though Larissa had her contract with TLC terminated after she broke it, the Brazilian mother and her American beau have continued to air their dirty laundry on social media. Larissa and Eric kept publicly fighting, splitting up, and reconciling, in a possible bid to remain relevant. Meanwhile, Larissa has had feuds and rivalries with many cast members, including Colt Johnson, his mom Debbie Johnson, Jess Caroline, Evelin Villegas, and Vanessa Guerra. Many people think that the mother-of-two wants to cause drama to keep her Instagram and OnlyFans accounts popular with franchise followers. While successful, Larissa receives plenty of fan criticism for her antics.
American Deavan Clegg aired her failed relationship with South Korean Jihoon Lee on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. The mother-of-two made a memorable impact on her one season, as she was labeled a franchise villain who was known for always causing drama. Fans think that Deavan likes to play the victim on social media. They accuse her of blaming everyone else for her problems. She memorably blamed her ex-husband for all of her issues before feuding with other reality TV personalities, including Leida Margaretha Cohen and Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom. Viewers also accused Deavan of feigning her miscarriage drama. Her ex Jihoon has alleged that she aborted their child against his wishes. Franchise fans believe that she turns to drama to stay relevant. Deavan is especially criticized for using her children and their lives to get attention.
Andrew Kenton is yet another dramatic franchise personality that fans turned against. The season 8 cast member memorably split from French beauty Amira Lollysa following the international couple going to ridiculous lengths to try and meet up in different countries. After their split was aired, Andrew labeled her dating claims false. He went on a social media crusade to smear Amira’s name and reputation. Though viewers made it clear that they disliked Andrew due to the way that he behaved on social media, he refused to stop blaming TLC and Amira for painting him in a negative light. Along the way, Andrew was also involved in drama with franchise regular David Toborowksy. Many viewers think the angry American was too focused on causing drama and blaming others when he should have worked on himself.
Chantel Everett Jimeno
Chantel Everett Jimeno is one of the reigning franchise queens. She got her own spinoff, The Family Chantel. While she is popular, the Atlanta beauty is also accused of stirring up drama to get attention from reality TV fans. So is her family, and a lot of people do consider her family members “messy.” The 30-year-old wife of Pedro Jimeno became famous due to her dramatic, suspicious and argumentative family. The Everett family is known for starting drama seemingly for ratings, which has caused their spin-off show to revolve around nothing but family issues. Many viewers have panned the show for airing exclusively bad behavior, though the drama has made Chantel successful on TLC and social media.
Paul Staehle has left franchise fans with whiplash due to the frequent ups and downs in his relationship with his wife Karine Staehle. The couple has split up on multiple occasions. They even obtained restraining orders against each other after shocking claims were made and then retracted. While sharing his family drama, Paul has often asked his followers for financial assistance. Therefore, many people believe that the father invents drama to get attention, with the goal of earning more cold, hard cash. Paul has made outlandish claims. He said that Karine fathered their son with a different man. Then, he ordered paternity tests for his kids, and some franchise fans felt that those tests were scheduled in order to entertain his social media followers. His actions have caused him to be heavily criticized by his followers, especially since he involves his children and visibly angers his wife.
Natalie Mordovtseva is another cast member who constantly seems to be involved in drama. Natalie appears to be addicted to arguments, and this addiction may be due to her stubbornness, ego, and desire for attention. Though many viewers believe that her mother-in-law Trish is often out of line, it is probable that Natalie exaggerates her interactions with the woman. The wife of Mike Youngquist, who says Trish called her the H-word, is prone to drama and hyperbole, especially when sharing stories. Natalie has also been accusing of being dramatic on social media, thanks to her over-the-top photo edits and bizarre personality. Many viewers believe that the 90 Day Fiancé star is genuinely unique, but also enjoys the attention she gets when she acts out.
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? streams Fridays on Discovery+ and airs Sundays at 8pm on TLC.
