90 Day Fiancé star Paola Mayfield has a new job, and it’s probably not what anyone expects. The controversial reality star has been raising eyebrows throughout the last year for her championing nonsense pseudoscientific conspiracy theories about COVID-19. Now, she’s turning heads yet again, but this time it’s happening in the ring. Mayfield recently announced she’ll be taking up wrestling, and fans have mixed reactions.
Paola Mayfield is a controversial star
Paola Mayfield of 90 Day Fiancé has been wildly misled when it comes to medical science. The controversial reality star has taken to posting falsehoods and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and the vaccine throughout the last year — and she seems to have an especial hatred for Bill Gates.
For example, Mayfield previously posted a photo of Bill Gates to her Instagram story, surrounded by innocuous quotes from the philanthropist.
“It’s looking like [RNA vaccines are] one of the most promising options for COVID. There’s a catch, though: we don’t know for sure yet if RNA is a viable platform for vaccines. … We need to manufacture at least 7 BILLION doses. … Eventually, though, we’re going to scale this thing up so that the vaccine is available to everyone. And then, we’ll be able to get back to normal,” read one such quote.
[Not] today Satan!!!” wrote Mayfield over the quote. Mayfield has also expressed sincere belief that rebreathing one’s own carbon dioxide exhalations can cause damage — a verifiably false belief.

“Honestly she is perfect for this. She will get tons of attention from the audience, which she craves, and she’s pretty good at it. She’s an athlete and maybe she can pour her energy into this instead of toxic negativity anti vax and other insane crap,” pointed out another user.
“And she will be a great natural heel,” opined another fan of the show.
“She’s all dressed up to fight science, logic, facts, critical thinking and common sense. PAO THE DENIER!!!!” added another commenter.
