90 Day Fiance: Rachel and Jon Money Woes Infuriate Fans?

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days  – Rachel Bear and Jon Walters

Anyone who watched this 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days season knows the couple has financial trouble.  One of the things that are keeping them apart is money or lack of it. Rachel and Jon married so they’re applying for a spousal Visa instead of the K1 visa.

The visa is costly, which is one major roadblock for the couple. Then there’s Jon’s past police record, which the TLC show made a larger issue than it really was according to a leak.

As seen on 90 Day Fiance, Jon lost his job because he couldn’t time off for his wedding week with Rachel, he claims. He sprung this bit of news on Rachel just days before the wedding. Furthermore, Jon also shared with Rachel that he is heavily in debt.

90 Day Fiance – Jon Walters’ Financial Woes

Jon has about $50,000 in student loans that he needs to pay back. While the two seem very much in love, they need more than that love to fix their predicament. Jon and Rachel need money. Rachel has used Go-Fund-Me in the past to get other’s to pay for her traveling.

However, this time it wasn’t Rachel that started the Go-Fund-Me account. It was a fan claiming they wanted to get enough donations to help the couple out, according to blogger John Yates. The couple has since asked that it be taken down.

This wasn’t anything that Jon and Rachel did on their own, reports Yates. It is not known if all the backlash is what prompted the couple to ask for the page to come down or not. But it is no longer intact on the Go-Fund-Me site.

 

It seems that asking the fans to help this couple was a bit too much for some viewers of the show. Those who gave money to this fundraiser did so because they believed in this fairytale.

90 Day Fiance – Fans Polarized Over Helping

Fans debated this online with two very polarized sides forming. There were comments that suggested the couple had a lot of nerve, especially with all the homeless people in the world. There were the supporters who were all too happy to donate and get Jon over to the states where he’ll be with his new family.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days aired their last episode of the season Sunday night. According to how some fans describe the scene, “Jon got a little hostile.” The host of the “Tell All” episode, Shaun Robinson, brought up the subject of Jon’s temper.

Jon basically explained how he sees masculinity to the audience and that’s something he feels strongly about. You can see the clip below, from the TLC  90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days “Tell All” episode.

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Little Lucy Saying Da-Da

Just hearing little Lucy calling Jon “da-da” was enough for some fans who went to Go-Fund-Me to donate. Anyway, the Go-Fund-Me page to help bring Jon Walters to his wife and her two children in the US is now gone. Jon and Rachel may have to get together as a family another way.

Soaps are an infatuation of mine and reality TV lets me be that fly on the wall when it comes to witnessing all types of behavior, as it never amazes me what people will say and do with the cameras rolling.
