’90 Day Fiancé’: Brittany Banks Reveals That She Didn’t Do the Show for Love
People are quick to make judgments about the casts of tv shows. From the moment that it was revealed that Brittany Banks would be on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, fans were quick to criticize her. The fact that Banks was a rapper and already pretty popular on social media led people to believe that she might have been on the show for fame. But now, she has revealed the real reason that she signed up for the reality show.
Before dating Yazan, Banks was used to dating older men.
“You would have to be 45 and older to even talk with me and my braces have worked in my favor,” she said on the show. “The older, settled gentlemen really like it.”
The men would wine and dine Banks and show her the finer things in life.
After it was announced that Banks would be going on the show, she started being more private about her life and lifestyle.
“‘The Other’ Way premiering on TLC June 1st,” she captioned a picture on Instagram. “Yes, I been very private recently cus it’s about to get real public. I’m a savage, classy, boujee, ratchet.. forgot the rest cus the ‘Tiger King’ version is stuck in my head but gon head and enjoy.”
She then switched Instagram handles from @itsbrittanybanks to @thebossbrittany and people began accusing her of buying followers.
“I took all my photos down & changed my name,” she wrote in her Instagram story, according to Starcasm. “I changed my brand! That’s why I have 327k followers and not a lot of likes or comments. If I post a booty picture I’ll have like 39,000 likes. But I don’t want to.”
Banks also reportedly has two OnlyFans accounts under the handles @ItsBrittanyBanks and @ItsTheBrittany.
Why did Brittany Banks do the show?
From Banks’ social media accounts, it’s clear that she was already somewhat of an influencer before the show. But now, Banks is putting all of the rumors to rest and revealing what actually made her do the show.
In an Instagram rant captured by The Blast, Banks said that she did the show to educate Americans.
“Clearly, Americans need to travel more or see more people’s experiences traveling,” she wrote. “Surprise I didn’t do the show for clout. I did it because some Americans need to watch ’90 Day Fiancé’ and get educated. Plus this is a time for inclusion. TLC has been ahead of the ball in having POC represented in their network. If you don’t believe out of trillions of people(I can’t believe I have to put in parenthesis that I said trillions to sarcastically exaggerate for the idiots who will point this out for virtual cookies) in the world someone like me and someone like Yazan would never hook up, you clearly live in a box. Get out more, try new things! We only have ONE life to live, how do you know what you like if you don’t try it! Say what you want but I go out in the field and do my research because I’m not scary 😉🙏 I got heart.”
