90 Day Fiance: Yolanda Leak Chased Josh Seiter
Soap Dirt recently conducted an exclusive interview with Bachelorette star Josh Seiter. Josh answered questions about his relationship with Yolanda Leak of 90 Day Fiance. Fans think Josh was using Yolanda for leverage and exposure.
Soap Dirt: Josh, fans have been clamoring for answers about your relationship with Yolanda Leak of 90 Day Fiance. So, tell your followers, did you use Yolanda for clout?
Josh Seiter: No. first of all, Yolanda Leak chased me initially and was the one pushing a relationship. Two weeks in, she asked me to “turn up” the public affection on Instagram because TLC had “exercised their option” to bring her back for a second season. Yolanda Leak sent me a screenshot of the options contract and stated that our relationship could help her get on the new season of 90 Day Fiance. Yolanda then launched into a sob story about how she was broke and needed the money and spun this whole web about how it would be great for both of us if she were brought back because we could “show the whole world how much we love each other.” I naively agreed, but only after she assured me, she wasn’t just using me to be on television.
TLC Reached out to Bachelorette Alum
SD: What happened with TLC?
Josh Seiter: TLC producers contacted me shortly after we started talking (odd, right?). Yolanda set the whole thing up, gave the producers my number, and was adamant that I talk to them so she could “secure her bag, i.e., moneybag.” She insisted that I “talk up our relationship” during the interview. I cautiously agreed, and the producers interviewed me via Zoom. I was uncomfortable, which probably showed in my answers. But I never heard back from them. TLC, which produces 90 Day Fiance, let us know that Yolanda Leak and I wouldn’t appear in the upcoming season, and shortly afterward, Yolanda ghosted me. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Soap Dirt: Do you think Yolanda Leak’s intentions were ever genuine.
Josh Seiter: I’m honestly not sure. It’s hard to say because she was very convincing in the beginning. But she is a con artist and criminal, so who really knows? All I know is that I wasn’t the one trying to get on the second season of a television series, 90 Day Fiance, and I never cheated on Yolanda Leak. Yet, at the end of our relationship, she admitted to having a live-in boyfriend. It doesn’t seem very genuine if you ask me.
SD: What do you say to the haters who say you are using Lizzie for clout as you did with Yolanda?
Josh Seiter: I didn’t use Yolanda Leak for clout, and I’m definitely not using Lizzie Kommes for clout. Yolanda has no clout. After all, she’s a grandma briefly featured on a reality show, 90 Day Fiance, who had a quarter of my following before I put her back in the news. She was the one who sought me out for a second chance at television exposure, not the other way around. I have an established brand as one of the most followed mental health advocates on Instagram, and my money comes from the stock market;
