90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star Darcey Silva wants to be on the cover of Maxim magazine. She is using her considerable fan base to help.
Darcey Silva has not commented on the online drama between Tom Brooks and her ex Jesse Meester. It could be because Darcey is working extra hard to promote herself in hopes of being a cover girl for Maxim, a famous men’s magazine. Darcey appears confident that she has a good chance at landing the famous gig — all thanks to her 90 Day Fiance success. Will Darcey be able to extend her 15 minutes of fame even longer?
90 Day Fiance: Darcey Silva Vies For Maxim Cover – Currently Leads The List
Darcey Silva, the 90 Day Fiance veteran, is taking part in this year’s Maxim Cover Girl competition. The contest relies on online votes to pick a winner. Because she is competing against unknown amateur girls, Darcey is able to parlay her fame into clicks and votes – lot of votes.
Over the past few days, Darcey Silva has begged 90 Day Fiance fans on Instagram and other platforms to vote for her. It seems Darcey’s strategy is working. She is currently ranked #1 in her group, beating out over 40 other young candidates.
Darcey Busy Promoting Self – Keeps Her Eyes On The Maxim Magazine Cover Prize
In her Maxim Cover Girl bio, Darcey Silva introduced herself as a mother of two beautiful daughters, Aniko and Aspen, as well as a successful entrepreneur. She also emphasized her 90 Day Fiance experience, calling herself a “tv personality, actress, and producer”.
Darcey Silva claimed that more than being Maxim’s cover girl, she joined the contest for a good cause. The competition doubles as a fundraiser, which aims to help the Wounded Warrior Project. The charity hopes to provide homes suitable for injured veterans. The 90 Day Fiance alum said that if she wins, she will donate any prize money to the charity. But there is more than money as a prize. Darcey would also receive a lavish photoshoot with famous photographer Gilles Bensimon. That combined with the exposure she would get is worth more than the prize money.
Darcey Silva is competing against girls half her age for the cover of the magazine. While she has reality television money coming in, the other contestants can’t afford to forego the prize money. So in the end, her social bribe of agreeing to give up her prize money to charity may very well push her over the top. A TLC source revealed to Soap Dirt that Darcey is the highest paid 90 Day Fiance cast member.
As of this writing, Darcey remains at the number one spot but she still has a long way to go. Voting ends on Thursday, September 12 at 11 p.m. EST.
90 Day Fiance: Darcey On Tom Brooks & Jesse Meester Drama
By the looks of it, Darcey Silva is putting all her focus on the cover girl campaign, so much so that she seemingly chose to ignore Tom Brooks and Jesse Meester’s online feud. The 90 Day Fiance star has been noticeably quiet about the issue — a far cry from her usual outspoken self.
Although Darcey has yet to officially address the conflict, she made sure to show her appreciation to those who remain by her side. In particular, she thanked her fellow 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member Tim Malcolm for defending her and Tom from Jesse.
In an Instagram Live together, Darcey expressed her gratitude to Tim, calling him her brother. Tim admitted that he, Darcey, and Tom developed a strong bond while filming the show. At one point, he even referred to her as his “homegirl” and warned those who say something bad about her. So far, Jesse has yet to respond to Tom and Tim’s challenge. Tom wants to fight Jesse in a boxing match.
