Reality TV show “90 Day Fiance” creates a lot of drama and makes even the most loyal fan wonder whether their storylines are fake, conversations scripted, or scenes staged. But according to some cast members, all is not as it seems on the TLC hit series.
Chris Thieneman is one of the first former cast members to speak out about the show and how it’s filmed, revealing insights along the way. He appeared on 90 Day Fianc season 5 as part of pal David Toborowsky s storyline with his now-wife, Annie Suwan. They also returned on the third season of the spinoff, 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?
For their chat, Chris and Nikki chose the topic of reality TV and answered fan questions.
One fan asked Chris Hanna and Fernanda Flores, the 90 Day Fiancé cast members in question if they believed their story was scripted on The Tell All: Revisited.
Chris responded coyly, Well absolutely parts of it are. Some of it’s real and then teased with it added to or taken away from.
One of the most shocking scenes in franchise history happened between David, Annie, Chris, and Nikki. At the time, David had been living abroad in Thailand, which is where he met Annie. The Louisville native was hoping to move back to America with Annie to start their American dream, but he did not have a job lined up back home Us Weekly staffers sat down with him.
When I realized you wanted me to wear the costume and make an eggplant, I didn’t have time to think. Looking back, I realize that’s because I was thinking about everything else, like focusing on what needed to get done for work or taking care of my kids. As a non-actual cast member, I thought I would not be singled out. However, that was my mistake. We as a show have done nothing but helpful and respectful things to America.
TLC and Sharp Entertainment, producers of the show “90 Day Fiancé,” have not responded to In Touch’s previous requests for comment.
