’90 Day Fiancé: Who Does Colt Johnson’s Mom Debbie Like Better, Jess or Larissa?

Larissa Dos Santos Lima and Colt Johnson had one of the most toxic relationships in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. Like most other couples on the show, the two fought, but unlike the other couples, their fights got physical. When they finally broke up, no one was happier than Johnson’s mom, Debbie. But now that Colt is dating a new woman, Jess, Debbie might wish she hadn’t been so hard on Dos Santos Lima.

Colt and Larissa’s relationship

When Johnson told Dos Santos Lima that he lived in Las Vegas, the Brazilian dreamed of the flashy city life. When she got to America to live with Johnson, she realized that that wasn’t the reality of life there. Living in a small apartment with Johnson’s mom was not the life that Dos Santos Lima had been expecting. Soon, she and Johnson began to argue constantly and Dos Santos Lima had a hard time getting along with Debbie.

They finalized their divorce in 2019.

“Colt Johnson and Larissa dos Lima Santos Lima have come to settlement terms in their divorce,” Johnson’s attorney Shawanna L. Johnson told People. “Through their respective attorneys, they have agreed to settle the case amicably with both parties bearing their own fees and costs.”

“Colt is very pleased that the matter is resolved and that both parties can move on with their lives,” the statement read. “Given the short duration of the marriage and with there being no property matters or custody considerations, the matter should have, and has, settled early in the proceedings. The attorneys are preparing the Stipulated Decree to submit to the Court, which will be signed and entered, and will then be a matter of public record.”

Colt has a new girlfriend

After divorcing Dos Santos Lima, Johnson did not jump right into the dating game, but eventually he did meet a new woman. This season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, fans were introduced to Johnson’s new girlfriend Jess Caroline.

“Jess is beautiful,” he said on the show. “She’s 26 years old. She has a rockin’ body. She has glasses and she loves cats. She lives in Chicago, but I met Jess once in Las Vegas.

“She was visiting with some of her friends,” he continued. “We just hit it off. Jess has a really good vibe about everything. She’s fun. She likes to party. I’m excited to just be with her.”

In Johnson’s eyes, Caroline and Dos Santos Lima were very different women.

“She’s young,” he said. “She’s fun. She likes to have a good time. I feel like she’s a breath of fresh air. She’s given me life again. Jess and I are definitely on the same page in regards to intimacy. Honestly, after being with Larissa, thank God.”

Who does Debbie like better?

Debbie never hid how much she disliked Dos Santos Lima. But now that Johnson is dating Caroline, Debbie would rather have the evil she knows than one she doesn’t. When asked by Entertainment Tonight who was more trustworthy and a good person, Debbie chose Dos Santos Lima.

“Because Larissa’s evil, but she’s honestly evil,” she said. “I’m not gonna say that, she’s not evil, she’s just … I trust Larissa because I know her and I know what she’s about. Jess is a total mystery to me.”
