90 Day Fiancé fans are starting to find the discovery+ spinoff of the show, 90 Day Bares All too “cringey” for their taste. Former and current cast members from the 90 Day Fiancé universe give an uncensored look into their life. While it’s a great concept, the delivery feels stilted and awkward, which is why fans are opting out of watching it altogether.
What is ’90 Day Bares All’?
The 90 Day Fiancé spinoff, 90 Day Bares All premiered on January 2021. The discovery+ original is a talk show/game show-inspired series that gives current and former 90 Day Fiancé cast members a chance to speak uncensored.
The show also includes bonus content such as never-before-seen footage and untold stories. On the show, fans play games, sing, and answer questions. Nothing is off-limits in this discovery+ original series, where the rating is TV-M. So what usually is not allowed on TLC can be shown on 90 Day Bares All.
’90 Day Fiancé’ fans find it too ‘cringey’ to watch
While the concept of 90 Day Bares All seems like the show would be an automatic hit. It appears that something about 90 Day Bares All is turning fans off. One fan made a post on Reddit, talking about the September 26th episode, where Steven Johnston, Pedro Jimeno, and Chantel Everett try traditional Russian foods in front of Alina. The fan captioned the screengrab, “Great idea producers, make Alina watch while other cast members throw up over her culture’s food.”
One Reddit user “This maddened me so much. Why would they do that? I just find it disrespectful and ignorant.” In the comments, another fan wrote, “I can’t bring myself to watch Bares All. It’s so cringy.” Many fans agreed with this statement. Another 90 Day Fiancé fan said, “This show is such trash. Not even the good kind.”
How could discovery+ make the show less awkward?
The show is not only “cringey,” but according to fans, it’s also “tasteless,” “unwatchable,” and “awkward.” While the show’s content is part of the problem — i.e., making Pedro, Chantel, and Steven try Alina’s culture’s food) knowing that they will be dramatic about it. So far on Bares All season 2, Brittany Banks rapped about co-stars, Paola Mayfield showed off her professional wrestling routine, and the Potthast sisters talked about selling foot pictures for money.
Fans agree that the show’s content is the problem, but there are other factors at play. The way the host, Shaun Robinson, interviews has always been a problem with fans. While she’s the host of the 90 Day Fiancé shows, many fans don’t think she asks the right questions.
Of course, editing also plays a part in it. The lack of a studio audience also makes awkward silences that editing cannot hide, making many guests uncomfortable. With the point of the show being to allow cast members and fans to let loose and have fun, the vibe clearly doesn’t reflect that. Many devoted 90 Day Fiancé fans are opting out of watching 90 Day Bares All entirely.
