The original 90-day fiancee series premiered in 2014, and the popularity of the TLC show has led to spin-offs such as 90-day fiancee: Happily Ever After?  90-day fiance: Before the 90 days and 90-day fiance: The other way .
The show and its many spin-offs follow international couples who are on the K-1 visa that allows Americans to bring their foreign partners to the United States if they marry within a 90-day window, with the exception of The Other Way follows the Americans who move overseas to be with their foreign partners. It is the perfect breeding ground for cultural struggles, struggles (both verbal and physical) and naive people who may be cheated out of a green card.
As the series’s subjects reveal their and their family’s lives for amazing reality TV, viewers may be wondering how much the 90-day fiance’s cast will be paid for ̵
Are 90-day fiancees couples paid?
The couples on the 90-day fiance are paid, but it's not much. A source reported Radar Online that the actors in the series received about $ 1,000 to $ 1,500 per episode and $ 2,500 for the Tell All Special. This paycheck is approximately $ 14,500 for a 12 episode season.
However, the foreign member of the couple who has a K-1 visa does not receive a paycheck at all. The source said, "You can't even get paid because you have to wait for a work permit. Of course, it's different when you're filming in your country."
However, there are conflicting reports when it comes to paying for the spin-offs. As 90-day fiance blogger John Yates told Newsweek a couple makes $ 500 per episode on before 90 days while couples on Happily Ever After received between $ 2,000 and $ 7,500 episodes. Some sources say supportive actors like the couple's friends and family get around $ 250 for a day of shooting, but Reality Blurb says they don't get paid at all.
Remember Nikki Cooper and Chris Thieneman, friends of David and Annie on the 90-day fiance ? Cooper claims that they were not paid for the time on the show, even though their house was used for filming. And when Cooper and Thieneman asked production to pay for their house to be cleaned after the TLC crew chased dirt into their house, they offered the couple only $ 100.
The legendary actress Danielle Mullins, who appeared on the 90-day fiance with her then fiancé Mohamed, ran into financial difficulties in 2018. At that time, she pointed out that the cast of the show "does not make millions from the TV show".
What does the occupation of 90 Day Fiancé do for money?
After their time on the show, most of the performers have returned to their previous jobs. Some performers sell personalized video messages on the Cameo website, while others, such as Anfisa Arkhipchenko, have YouTube channels. (She is now a bodybuilder too!)
