Eric and Leida on Why They Think They’re the Least Favorite ’90 Day Fiancé’ Couple
In an interview the couple did with The Domenick Nati Show on July 4, they said that, when they first began filming their season, the producers of the show told them their scenes were “so boring” and didn’t “bring enough energy.”
Eric says ’90 Day Fiancé’ producers ‘threaten[ed]’ him to get the footage they wanted
Eric and Leida said they were often kept filming until producers got the footage they wanted.
“So the interviews when you’re sitting in the chair, you’re sitting in that chair for 12 hours. Literally, you’ll go all night if they don’t get what they want. Because you go through questions and they ask you different ways,” said Eric.
During the Instagram Live interview with Nati, a fan asked Eric and Leida if they felt they had a good and fair experience with TLC.
“During it they treat you pretty good except for when they threaten you if you don’t give them what they want,” said Eric.
He feels that, though the show is not scripted, the storylines are very much controlled by producers.
“They don’t script, but they produce. So they will create scenarios. They will create situations,” he said.
Eric and Leida are their own least favorite ’90 Day Fiancé’ couple
When asked which 90 Day Fiancé couple was their least favorite, Eric and Leida said, based on the edit they received, themselves.
“We hate ourselves. I’m being serious. I hate myself! Every time I see myself on the show I look like either a pig or an a**hole,” said Leida.
Eric explained why he appeared to be so sweaty during filming.
“I’m like a sweaty pig because they had us turn off the air conditioning. I get, you know, the noise. It’s loud, and it’s in the background. But it was in the middle of June and it was hot as hell in the apartment. They were like, ‘Turn off the fan. Turn off the air conditioning.’ So I just looked like a nasty, sweaty dude,” he said.
Eric and Leida say they understand why they’re not the most popular with fans.
“If you go by the way they portrayed us, yeah, we’re horrible people,” said Eric.
Eric and Leida say they’ve received thousands of death threats and wishes from ’90 Day Fiancé’ fans
“90 Day has a very rabid fan base. Really emotionally invested in the show,” said Eric. He believes he and Leida have received thousands of death threats and wishes from fans over the last two years.
The couple tends to receive more hate from fans every time their season gets played.
“Every time they replay our season or snippets of it, reruns, then it starts back up. It quiets down then they’ll start replaying it again,” he said.
“If I don’t like people on the show, I’m not going to send them sh*t about them randomly on social media. No, I just don’t like it. That’s it. These people, most of the time, are so entitled to their opinions,” said Leida of 90 Day Fiancé fans.
