Big Ed was dating Rose on Before the 90 Days. They met on Facebook, and Ed was 54 at the time, and Rose was 23. He traveled to the Philippines, where she’s from, and there were problems from the start, as well as complaints from Ed. Plus, he lied about his height. He even asked Rose to take an STD test, and he made comments about her shaving her legs and brushing her teeth.

Despite all of that, Rose was still hopeful for a proposal, but things changed drastically when Big Ed revealed that he didn’t want any more children. Rose wanted more kids, and Ed wanted to get a vasectomy. After that major issue, Rose broke up with Ed.

Since that memorable appearance, Big Ed has been in a variety of spinoffs in the franchise, including 90 Day: The Single Life.

On May 20, 2021, Big Ed posted a video of himself in a hospital gown while sitting in a hospital bed with a mask down below his mouth. He presumably is prepped for a colonoscopy, as he goes on to talk about it and to encourage some of his fans to get a colonoscopy as well. 

“What up my peeps?” Ed says. He goes on to say, “Listen. When you’re over 50, you gotta get the colon camera up your butt. And it’s important because staying healthy is essential, for you and for the people around you. So, my dudes, if you’re over 50 years old, get your colonoscopy when recommended. And, it can save your life. So, I’m all prepped. They put in my IV. It’s kind of cool.” He also adds, “But they’re super nice. And I will see you guys on the other side. Have a great day. Love yourself, love yourself always. And yeah, you guys have a wonderful day. Take care.”

Big Ed captioned the post on Instagram: “Get the Colonoscopy once over 50 dudes..! #colonoscopy #biged #biged90dayfiance.” Over 83,000 people liked the post, and over 300 commented on it.

Fans react

As can be expected, fans had a lot of opinions about Ed’s post. Some fans wished him “good luck” with the procedure.

“Omg Big Ed, good luck!!!!!!!!!!!! Very good recommendation!!!!!!!!” a fan said.

Another fan added, “Good luck on the procedure Big Ed!❤️.”

“Thank you for encouraging something that is important!!” a fan wrote. “Hope you’re staying healthy and happy Ed!!💗”

While other fans added comments like, “Huge support and respect!! 🙌!!” and “🙌 a post worth sharing for sure.”

But one fan wants to know, “Why are you putting your entire life on Instagram?”

And other fans added, “Don’t need YOU to tell me this!!! Are you a doctor?” and “We didn’t need to know about this.”

Many fans seem positive about Big Ed’s post, but not all fans feel the same way.
