It’s a throwback battle between Rose Marie Vega and her ex-boyfriend Big Ed Brown. The 90 Day Fiance celebs sent their fans into a frenzy with some nostalgic photos from their younger years. Ed Brown was the first to share an old picture of himself taken way back in 1984.

In the photo, Big Ed looked like a completely different person with his tan skin and muscular build. He also rocked a suave-looking mustache. Ed’s younger look contrasted with his current overweight and scruffy appearance.

Rose Marie Vega seemed to follow suit and shared her very own throwback snap. The 90 Day Fiance newbie looked very young and innocent in a photo taken when she was 16 years old. Rose Marie even shared fun details about her mini photo-op at that time. She said she took the picture using a webcam at a local computer shop, before altering it using an old-school photo editing app.
