90 Day Fiance and its many spinoffs give fans lots of time to think about who they love and hate – including Ricky Reyes and Tania Maduro. Here are five cast members across all the franchises that rub viewers the wrong way.
#1 Jesse Meester – The Man Who Always Made Darcey Cry on 90 Day Fiance
People either love or hate Jesse Meester on 90 Day Fiance. Some think Jesse’s a saint for putting up with Darcey Silva for so long. But others believe Jesse gaslighted the tear-stained diva and did her wrong. Fans split deeply on who’s to blame for the Jesse-Darcey mess.
Now, Jesse’s a self-help guru and love hopeful without her on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. TLC showed Jesse looking for love in NYC, but some fans think it was all scripted fare to promote him. Worse yet, Jesse’s now BFFs with her other ex Tom Brooks. That seems like a cut on the bias aimed at Darcey.

#2 Tania Maduro – Not Her Soulmate Quip Scorched Viewers
During her season on 90 Day Fiance, viewers came out hard against Tania Maduro and felt bad for Syngin Colchester. First, Tania stuck him in a shed at her mom’s place. Then, Tania Maduro hightailed it to another country for witch doctor school. That left Syngin sad, alone, doing chores, and cribbing nips of whiskey from Tania’s mom.
Worse yet on 90 Day Fiance, Tania Maduro told Syngin he’s not her soulmate. That had viewers screaming for Syngin to run the other way. He didn’t, and we’ll see more of the fallout as Tania demands a baby in their upcoming follow-up season while still insisting there’s no soul connection there. Is Tania Maduro the worst?

#3 Lisa Hamme – Usman Abuse Shocked Watchers of 90 Day Fiance
This season’s Before the 90 Days introduced Lisa Hamme, who traveled to Nigeria to marry Usman Umar, a “famous” rapper there. Since arriving, she continually bossed and bullied SoJa Boy. Then, back in America, she’s rampaged against fans that message him, plus she called him the N-word.
While the 90 Day Fiance Tell All may edit out the racial slur, most fans know by now how Lisa dissed Usman. The verbal abuse continued as she harangued him into proposing. Plus, finding out Lisa had a live-in guy back in the US, as a source leaked to us, makes it worse. So, is BGL the worst cast member?
#4 Paul Staehle – Where Do We Begin?
Kentucky native Paul Staehle popped up way back on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days season 1 searching for love on the Amazon River. It’s hard to see how germaphobe Paul thought finding a bride in Brazil was a good idea. Remember the junk cover to protect his penis from parasites?
Fans laughed as he packed up a fortress of bug spray, mosquito netting, and antibiotics. Paul stunned viewers when he demanded a pregnancy test from Karine Martins on 90 Day Fiance. Later, when things got tough in Karine’s village, Paul ran off and hid in a shed like a scolded puppy. Wow. Just wow.
#5 Ricky Reyes – Married But Proposing on 90 Day Fiance
One of the most reviled people on Before the 90 Days had to be Ricky Reyes from season 2 when he went to Colombia to meet Ximena Parra. Ricky’s storyline smelled like fraud from the start with the catfish scenes even before he met Ximena. Then, we saw Ricky Reyes bed Ximena and offer to wed her – before coming clean.
The problem was, 90 Day Fiance’s Ricky had a wife back in the US. Later it spilled out that Ricky Reyes fibbed to get on the show hoping to promote his photog business. It all backfired, and now Ricky Reyes’ is pretty much persona non grata with fans and TLC as he’s not been invited back. And Ximena told him she’s not his second plate. Is Ricky the most hated ever?
