’90 Day Fiance’: Jonathan-Fernanda Underwear Scene Copied From Season 3 – TLC Recycling?

90 Day Fiance stars Fernanda Flores and Jonathan Rivera may have gone their separate ways but that doesn’t stop the rumor mill from turning. New accusations hint TLC faked some of their controversies – particularly the underwear argument. Some wonder if producers had Jonathan and Fernanda fib and create fake drama during their time on the show.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice a storyline that seems to be from a past season. Fans know some of the drama is manufactured on 90 Day Fiance, as cast members admitted. But is Sharp Entertainment (TLC’s production company for the show) running out of ideas and recycling past scenarios for ratings — or is just coincidence?

90 Day Fiance: Jonathan Rivera & Fernanda Flores’ Infamous Underwear Scene Looks Familiar to Fans

TLC faces yet another fraud speculation, this time involving Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores. The 90 Day Fiance couple allegedly played out a familiar scene from a previous season, making fans doubt whether the show is scripted or reality as it boasts.

Fan outcry on social media noted the underwear scene between Fernanda and Jonathan is strikingly similar to that of 90 Day Fiance Season 3’s Fernando and Carolina. A comparison of the two clips revealed that there is definitely a resemblance between the two scenes.

90 Day Fiance: Fernando - Carolina

Jonathan And Fernanda’s Scene Copied Or Just A Coincidence?

In the video, Carolina finds a red underwear on Fernando’s closet. The Colombia native confronts her fiance, throwing fiery questions as to who owns it. In his defense, Fernando says it’s from a former flame years ago. He adds that he’s not aware that it’s in his closet.


This exact scenario seems to mirror that of Jonathan and Fernanda’s. In an episode of 90 Day Fiance Season 6, an upset Fernanda discovered a female’s underwear on Jonathan’s closet.

She went on to confront her then-fiance, pretty much the same way Carolina did. Interestingly, Jonathan said t it was from an ex-girlfriend years ago — almost identical to Fernando’s excuse.

Fans Accused TLC Of Recycling Plot For Ratings

The striking similarities between the two underwear scenes lead to speculations that TLC is recycling storylines for 90 Day Fiance. Interestingly, some fans pointed out other seemingly re-used ideas from past seasons featured on the current one.

Aside from Fernanda Flores and husband Jonathan Rivera, there were claims that the show also recycled Colt Johnson and Larissa Christina’s lost luggage scene featured at the 90 Day Fiance Tell All episode.

Is TLC Duping Fans?

This is not the first time that TLC was accused of frauding fans. In the past, former 90 Day Fiance stars alleged that the network has been deceiving fans for the sake of ratings.

Just recently, Ashley Martson claimed the network made them lie about certain things while shooting the show. She added that the show instructed her and Jay Smith to fake their breakup and were asked to be “very deceptive.”

Other cast members also called out TLC for portraying them unjustly on 90 Day Fiance. Stars like Larissa Christina, Steven Frend, and Kalani Faagata point out the show’s shady editing, making some of them look bad.

So far, there’s no way of telling whether 90 Day Fiance is 100 percent real or scripted. One thing is for sure though. The similarities in those underwear scenes are definitely obvious.
