Big Ed Brown
Big Ed Brown is a former photographer from San Diego. He was first seen in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 4. The 57-year-old had met 27-year-old Rose Vega on Facebook and flew to the Philippines to get engaged to the single mom. Rose broke up with Big Ed Brown when she found out he’d lied about his desire to have kids because of his plans to get a vasectomy.
Big Ed returned to start dating Liz Woods, who was the waitress manager at his favorite restaurant in California. The couple has gone through a cycle of makeups and breakups in the past two years. Big Ed even asked for his ring back when he broke up with Liz for the 11th time on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? season 7.
Liz is a 30-year-old single mom from San Diego, who met Big Ed during 90 Day: The Single Life season 1. After much convincing on Big Ed’s part, Liz had agreed to date him, which made some viewers wonder if she was faking her love for TV fame. Big Ed and Liz infamously broke up the first time before The Single Life finale when a troubling leaked audio showed him blowing up on Liz for 4 minutes and 40 seconds.
Still, the couple got back together to get engaged and split 10 more times since then. Big Ed and Liz are back together to break the barriers between them. They are rebuilding toward a new life as they buy a new house and plan their wedding.
Ukrainian beauty Yara Zaya won the hearts of many fans in her debut on 90 Day Fiancé season 8. But at the same time, the 28-year-old was also accused of being a gold digger who got into a relationship with Jovi Dufren for a green card and his money. Yara struggled in her initial days in the U.S. with Jovi being away at work for months.
Yara became pregnant with the couple’s first baby and tied the knot with Jovi, yet wished to return to her homeland out of loneliness. But Yara has now become a proud owner of two businesses in the U.S. and is very much in love with Jovi. However, an emotional divide exists between them, which Yara and Jovi plan to resolve on 90 Day: The Last Resort.
Jovi had a job as an ROV Supervisor that had him stay at sea for months away from his wife and baby. Amidst this, he also had an interest in drinking, partying, and visiting strip clubs, which made Yara furious. Over time, Jovi has turned into a family man focused on taking care of his wife and daughter. But while at the resort, Yara and Jovi will discover that they’re hiding secrets from each other. There’s discourse between them, as both don’t know what they want in their future.
Molly Hopkins from Woodstock, Georgia has been unlucky in love since her debut in 90 Day Fiancé season 5. The 52-year-old single mom to two girls introduced her much younger husband Luis Mendez, but eventually divorced him after a series of on-screen arguments. Molly is best known for her Pillow Talk appearances with her now former best friend, Cynthia Decker. Cynthia and Molly were also business partners, owning the LiviRae Lingerie store together until they split in November 2022. At the same time, Molly split with her boyfriend Kelly Brown, which makes their appearance on 90 Day: The Last Resort confusing.
Kelly is a former New York City police officer who met Molly on social media. Molly and Kelly showed their romance in 90 Day: The Single Life season 1. They dated long-distance for two years until Kelly retired and moved to Georgia to stay with Molly. Molly looked forward to getting married and starting a family with Kelly, but their relationship fell apart after Kelly was accused of allegedly physically assaulting Molly’s daughter, Olivia Hopkins. In July 2023, Molly expressed relief at a warrant being issued for Kelly’s arrest. However, on 90 Day: The Last Resort, they are actively working together to rekindle their romance.
Kalani Faagata was a virginal young girl when she met an even younger Asuelu Pulaa while vacationing at a resort in Samoa. She became pregnant with Asuelu’s baby before he moved to the U.S. to get married to her. The couple welcomed a second baby, but as the relationship progressed, Kalani expressed her disappointment in Asuelu spending too much time on himself rather than prioritizing one-on one-couple time or helping her around with their family. Despite trying their best to resolve the issues, Kalani and Asuelu had a shocking fight on 90 Day Diaries in March 2022 as they struggled with communication, leading to Asuelu blocking Kalani on Instagram altogether.
Asuelu from Utulaelae, Samoa was working as an Activities Director at a resort when he met Kalani. The 27-year-old moved to the U.S. and has been married for almost five years. Since their fight in 90 Day Diaries, Asuelu has gone on record to say he’s single. He was rumored to have cheated on Kalani, which has now been confirmed in 90 Day: The Last Resort. Asuelu gave Kalani a hall pass, which she used to find a new man who is now her boyfriend. As Kalani is romancing her new man reportedly named Dallas in California, Asuelu has revealed he’s moved to Las Vegas.
Michael Ilesanmi is the 34-year-old husband of Angela Deem and is from Nigeria. The Lagos man had sent a message to Angela on Facebook, and the rest is 90 Day Fiancé history. Angela and Michael met in person over five years ago in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 2. They got married three years ago in 2020 before the pandemic, and have since been awaiting Michael’s spousal visa.
Michael gets sympathy from 90 Day Fiancé viewers who watch him go through much embarrassment whenever Angela berates him on television. Angela is usually suspicious of Michael cheating on her with a younger woman, which he even did recently when he was caught texting his 30-year-old girlfriend and making plans to meet her in America.
Angela is a 57-year-old grandmother of six from Hazlehurst, Georgia. She fell in love with Michael online, but always had a hard time trusting him because of where he’s from and being younger than her. While waiting for Michael to get to the U.S., Angela has undergone a massive weight loss of 100 pounds. As she works on herself, she was devastated by the cheating scandal. Angela hopes the professionals on 90 Day: The Last Resort help her decide whether she should stay with Michael or let go as she readies her divorce papers.
