90 Day Fiance is a popular show on TLC. And while the network continues to churn money out of its fame, the star cast has to follow some rules. Yes, each of the couples accepted and featured on the show need to comply with some rules. Those are mostly associated with their contracts and visas. And mind you, those rules are pretty odd and weird! Let us have a look.
90 Day Fiance: The Producers Encourage ‘Scripted’ Show
Although popular opinion says that reality shows are true, they are not. In fact, they mostly don’t portray the ‘reality’ at all. The TV shows, especially in the case of this TLC program, encourage the producers to script the scenes and spice things up. One of the cast members Ashley once said that they are asked to be deceptive on the show. The stars are told to fake their relationships. Basically, the network controls their relationships and social media activities to an extent.
The TLC Show Doesn’t Help The Couples With Their Visa Applications!
The show doesn’t help the couples in getting through their K-1 visa application. Moreover, the show never shows any support for getting the visa approved of an internationally-born individual of the couple. The couples are pretty much on their own. Another rule states that the couples must meet each other two years before filing for the K-1 visa. That means all those first-time meetings filmed for the show are not true. Additionally, the couples have to provide evidence of their meetings too.
A surprising yet interesting rule says that the stars do not decide how they will be portrayed on the show. The network has got to decide that. A thorough background check including participant’s criminal background check, any court documents, etc are also done. Also, if in case the participant couples do not marry, the partner born outside of the United States must return to their country of origin.
90 Day Fiance: New Fans Everyday!
TLC’s 90 Day Fiance is a big hit. It gains new fans everyday. Although its viewers are typically cynical, they are always thrilled to know the updates. These rabid fans get pleasure from seeing complete strangers struggling with the visa process and a relationship. And truth be told, none of them would regret to binge watch the show right from season 1. They will love it.
