90 Day Fiance star Deavan Clegg (Jihoon Lee’s ex) let slip that the TLC show is scripted. How much production influences scenes is a regular topic among watchers — and Deavan recently weighed in with some personal insight.
90 Day Fiance: Deavan Clegg Embarrasses Jihoon Lee
There’s a lot of drama this season for Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee on TLC’s 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. And there are a lot of questions among fans surrounding recent scenes with her and other people in Jihoon’s life.
Deavan Clegg embarrassed her husband at his workplace. She told his boss that Jihoon Lee got in trouble in the past for selling “stolen” phones.

90 Day Fiance: Deavan’s Scenes with Jihoon Staged?
Meanwhile, 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cast member Deavan Clegg threw TLC under the bus when she said the show is “scripted”. How much production influences what watchers see is a topic every season. Moreover, she took things one step further. According to Deavan Clegg, her scenes follow a script.
However, many fans don’t believe a lot of what Deavan has to say these days. Many followers feel that she’s been less than honest with them as of late. Many former cast members have said that the show will do several takes and use props. But many say that what happens in the relationship is real and not scripted.
90 Day Fiance alum Cassia Tavares says that TLC doesn’t script scenes. However, she added that there’s a caveat. According to her, the couples are the only thing “100% real” about the show. Cassia said production creates scenarios to maximize drama between the couples. Meanwhile, that – combined with heavy editing – pushes certain narratives with each storyline.
Some fans think that Deavan is calling 90 Day Fiance scripted so she can use TLC as a scape goat for the way she treated her husband Jihoon Lee while in front of the cameras.
A Lot of Drama on TLC
There’s certainly a lot of drama for this 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way pair this season. Things like Drascilla running into the street set the stage for a lot of tension for the couple. Meanwhile, more recent scenes like Deavan embarrassing Jihoon Lee in front of his boss have a lot of watchers raising their eyebrows.
Usually, divulging alleged production secrets is a violation of the non-disclosure agreement TLC stars sign. But, Deavan may have different priorities given the recent developments in her life. Fans following this story off-camera know Deavan moved on with a new man – and that she and Jihoon Lee are no longer together.
Deavan Clegg builds a new life with her new boyfriend in America. And her alleging that 90 Day Fiance is scripted could be a way to distance herself from everything currently going on in her storyline with her estranged husband – especially if she wants to move on from this previous chapter of her life for good.
