Tom Brooks Says He Was Drunk When He Auditioned for ’90 Day Fiancé’
“Realistically, what I want to happen is this show finishes now. So everything to do with 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days is done. You’re not gonna see me on another 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. I wouldn’t do it. I just wouldn’t. You might see me doing something else but that’s not the show I’d do. I wouldn’t want to sign up,” he said adamantly, adding that he would do Pillow Talk, however.
“If they ever offered that–I think it’s like four or five days filming–that would be fun,” he said.
Tom was drunk when he did both of his ’90 Day Fiancé’ audition calls
Tom says he never wanted to be on the show in the first place. He said he’d been telling Darcey Silva “no” for three months then one evening he got drunk and the rest is history.
“I got so drunk on a Friday night and I rang her and we were talking. And I think that was my audition. But I don’t remember much of it. All I remember is someone walking past the screen with a potbelly and I was making fun of it. And a guy with a beard I was making fun of how long his beard was. That’s it,” he said. And just like that, Tom made it past the first round of auditions.
“And then the second time again, it was another Friday night and I was drunk. And I was talking to people. But the time difference, it was the morning [for them] and I didn’t know what I was saying. And the next thing I know, I’ve been accepted on the show and I was like, ‘What show are you talking about?’” he said of his second audition call.
Tom says he didn’t know ’90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days’ participants got married
Tom also said that he had no idea how the show worked. He’d never watched an episode because he didn’t want to “cloud [his] judgment about who [Darcey] was as a person.”
“I didn’t actually realize the whole concept of the show. So when she’s saying, ‘Would you like to get married?’ and I’m going ‘What?’–I didn’t actually know that it was all about getting married or getting a green card, honestly,” he said.
Tom says he ultimately decided to do the show because he wanted to meet Darcey.
“I wanted to do it. It was someone that I wanted to meet. I understand that 90 Day Fiancé was all about getting married. I thought Before the 90 Days was where you go and meet someone and see what they’re like and then if you liked them you’d probably go onto 90 Day Fiancé and get married. I didn’t realize the concept to start with. But obviously I did after a week,” he said.
