’90 Day Fiancé’ spoilers find that the massive TLC reality hit that follows US citizens and their foreign loves as they figure out their compatibility with each other and their new living conditions, all within the 90 days the K1 ‘fiancé’ visa allows, is a huge hit with fans.
So much so it has spawned endless spin-offs that span both the regular TLC cable channel and headline the new Discovery + streaming platform.
But it was no accident that the show garnered instant fans when it landed on our screens in 2014. Creator, Matt Sharp did his research when deciding how he wanted his series to look and turned to MTV’s ultra-successful Teen Mom to draw inspiration.
’90 Day Fiancé’ Spoilers: Fans can thank MTV’s Teen Mom for 90 Day Fiancé!
At first glance, it doesn’t seem there is a lot in common between teenaged mothers clashing with ne’er-do-well baby-daddies while battling extreme exhaustion to tend to screaming babies and engaged couples on their rocky journey to the altar, but rather than the content, Sharp molded his fly-on-the-wall style on MTV’s.
Sharp spoke to Glamor magazine and explained how he appreciated the authenticity of Teen Mom. “Early on, we were looking at Teen Mom as a model of being a fly on the wall.” Sharp said. “We think at this point in nonfiction television, viewers have a detector in their chest. If something doesn’t feel real or authentic, it goes off.”
Sharp continued to explain that he and executive producer Dan Adler set about hiring documentarians to fill production positions on the show. He revealed how he knew he and his team were on the right track.
“Once we saw the footage coming back and the rough cuts, we saw something riveting. The subtlety of it. The most sideways glance, or the most awkward situation—that was a 10. That was because of the authenticity.”
’90 Day Fiancé’ Spoilers: Are we really getting real?
While Sharp and Adler and their team may have set out to showcase a true depiction of these love stories centered around the K1 viss process, fans aren’t sure how real the couples from newer seasons have been.
While we’ve all sat, glued to our screens for two hours each Sunday to see true love stories like Alexei Brovarnik and Loren Goldstone or witness the major fall-out from Danielle Mullins being used by Mohammed Jbali, audiences have accused some of the more recent season’s couples of being clout seekers, only appearing on television to gain followers and become influencers or simply pad their bank accounts.
Taking to social media, long-time fans ask the 90 Day casting to pay more attention to their choices so we aren’t stuck watching further seasons of Andrew Kentons and Amira Lollysa or Cortney Reardanzs and Antonio Millons. Please and thank you!
