“What the living hell is Larissa asking from the poor guy? $25,000 for a cosmetic surgery?” a Reddit fan wrote, to which another replied, “Judging by his residence, I doubt he has 25k.”

“Ya it’s irritatingly stupid,” one Redditor suggested. “As though he has any kind of money for plastic surgeries. Didn’t he have a roommate? Ridiculous.”

Some fans pointed out that Larissa has called Eric “cheap” before. And they noted that he wasn’t even willing to spend money on the expensive furniture they were looking at.

“So stupid. He clearly doesn’t have a pot to p*ss in,” one user wrote on Reddit. “He said he was ‘willing to pay’ a whole $400 for a couch & said 11K ‘is a car’. Yeah, he’s got $30,000 to give her. Then he’s Mr. Businessman who wants a loan contract in writing, with interest. OK Perry Mason, so she signs the contract… and then defaults. How ya gonna collect?”

So what does Eric do for work?

 Eric hasn’t discussed his finances or profession at length on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After.  But on his Instagram page, he did reveal that he never finished college and mostly works in sales on commission.
