’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Breakout Star: Everybody Loves Laura’s ‘Brother’ Ludwing

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Laura Jallali went to see her “brother” Ludwing Perea Melendez. What happened next was reality TV gold. Ludwing dished out some crazy grilled cheese and tough love. And the internet went wild. From Reddit to Instagram, inquiring minds want to know. Who is Ludwing and what the hell was in that grilled sammy? Turns out, Ludwing is an artist, husband and father. And he graciously provided the world with a how-to for his syrup and cheese concoction.

Ludwing’s Cheesy Comfort Food Dished to Laura Jallali – With a Side of Advice

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’s Laura Jallali was seeking advice from Ludwing Melendez before heading to Quatar. Ludwing has seen the pics of her with her much younger man on Facebook. Laura is 51 and Aladin Jallali is 29 (and a total smoke show). Of course, Ludwing didn’t know that Laura already married hunky Aladin. After just a few days. It seems they wouldn’t be allowed to check in to a hotel together in Qatar unless they are married. Because of the religious laws of the country.

So, Laura Jallali took the plunge. Ludwing Melendez decides she needs some good old-fashioned cheesy food stuffs. And steps up on a foot stool to concoct the gooey sandwich that broke the internet. First he slathers on butter. Then cheese. And then olives and maple syrup? Ludwing and Laura split the cheesy strangeness while dishing about Aladin. Ludwing is concerned about the age difference. While Laura admits he makes very good points, she still plans to move to Quatar to be with hubby Aladin Jallali on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way.

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way – Breakout Star Ludwing

Over the years and many spinoffs, the TLC show has seen quite a cast of characters. And of course some are friends and family of the cast. Ludwing Melendez seems to be one of those that captured the hearts of America. He has a wife, Laura, and children. Ludwing is also an artist. A Facebook post shows him standing in front of his drawings. He has a few YouTube channels as well. One is about reviewing toys and the other is for missionary work.

Since his reality show debut Monday night, Ludwing Melendez’s Instagram entourage tripled. And certainly will keep on climbing. Since the grilled sandwich was such a sensation, he made an IGTV video of how to make the treat he made for his good friend and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way star.

Ludwing explains the importance of using lots of butter. And the cheese of your choice. Then he adds either Kalamata olives or olives from Peru, where he is from. And dots on some honey, which is the original recipe. Whatever it was, Laura Jallali seemed to enjoy it on the latest installment of the franchise spinoff.

Fans of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, flocked to his Instagram to learn more about the soft-spoken tiny gourmet. One user asked if his wife was a “little person” too. To which Ludwing replied: “No she isn’t, and I am a very very short guy but not diagnosed with any other than short, and lately chubby.” Fans are calling for the addition of Ludwing to TLC’s Pillow Talk, the spinoff where cast members eat and dish on the current season. Certainly he’s the perfect fit!
