Ben Rathburn and Mahogany Roca’s complicated love story on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5 left fans with more questions than answers. Are Ben and Mahogany still together in 2023? Here’s what we know.
Ben and Mahogany’s journey on ‘Before the 90 Days’
On 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5, Ben, a 52-year-old ex-pastor, is eager to meet the love of his life, a 24-year-old Peruvian model, Mahogany, after going through a messy divorce and leaving his strict church. Despite the many red flags, Ben decides he will take a chance at love by going to Peru to meet Mahogany for the first time.
Ben gets stood up by Mahogany at the airport. She tells him to come to her hometown of San Bartolo because her father is suspicious of his intentions. Ben remains undeterred and goes to Mahogany anyways, convinced he can ease her father’s concerns.
Mahogany shocked 90 Day Fiancé fans when she showed up to Ben’s meeting, and that was a real person. Despite not being a catfish, Ben caught many inconsistencies in Mahogany’s story, which caused him to pause. The rest of the season was a game of cat and mouse as both took turns lying and playing games.
