90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Ricky Reyes Warns Future Cast Members
Ricky Reyes took to Instagram with an in-depth list of things that anyone thinking of joining the show should follow. Interestingly, his number one tip is, if you want to do the show, “Don’t do it, it’s stupid”. In his words, if potential cast members “can’t resist”, they need to make sure they’re “NOT a yes man or woman”.
Further, the 90 Day Fiance alum said to stand firm and tell your story. He warned against production calling all the shots and influencing decisions. Sources tell Soap Dirt that cast members are fed lines to say and asked to repeat them over and over. In addition, TLC is often in hot water for selective editing. It seems Ricky Reyes wants to make sure future TLC stars get their story told as accurately as possible.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – More Advice from Ricky
Next, Ricky Reyes addressed the working conditions on 90 Day Fiance. He said “They cannot force you to work 12 hours , you are a independent contractor , you make ur own f****** hours”. He said that if you agree to more hours, you become an employee and are owed overtime. According to Ricky, your best bet is to not fall into that “trap”.
His last bit of advice is two-fold. He warned that production will pay for things throughout the filming process. He stressed the importance of telling “them in writing that you never asked for it”. That way, if cast members do get free things from the experience, it’s out of the network’s pocket and not “subject for repayment”. Lastly, Ricky Reyes emphasized the importance of documenting everything in writing.

At the time, he seemed to genuinely want to atone for his poor decision-making and apologize to those he hurt as a result. He blamed his desire for 15 minutes of fame for his bad choices, and seemed to want to put as much distance between himself and the show as possible.
Recently, Ricky Reyes revealed before and after weight loss pics. In addition, he had daddy-daughter time at the movies. There were rumors that he was seeing fellow 90 Day Fiance cast member Cortney Reardanz but that was never confirmed.
