90 Day Fiance's Big Ed Says He Didn't Do Show For The Fame

Big Ed 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days TLC

Warning! The following contains spoilers for the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days episode "King Of Wishful Thinking." Read at your own risk!

The events of the latest 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days episode seemingly more or less confirmed that Big Ed Brown and Rose Vega are no longer a couple. Rose went to the airport after telling Ed off, while Ed walked away from the argument oblivious that it was so bad she'd left the resort.

While it seems like the two could still have some Friends-like airport interception, online comments from both make it appear that the two did truly split at some point. Rose had a particularly spiteful message for Ed a couple weeks back after viewing an episode, and alleged that he only did 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days to become an online celebrity. In an interview with The Night Time Show, Ed disputed that claim, and pointed to the show as proof:

What’s so ironic about this situation is that you look at the show and everybody’s like ‘You did this for fame. All the things you do are just you trying to show off.’ First of all, name one thing I did to make myself look good...I didn’t! That’s who I am. I’m just a natural goof.

Big Ed made a good point. If he had gone on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days with the intention of using Rose to boost his own star profile, he may have tried to make himself look a bit nicer. Ed had said some hurtful things on camera to Rose throughout the course of the season, some of which he's since admitted he could've handled better.

Whether he intended for it or not, Big Ed has become an internet sensation since 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days started airing for various reasons. There's a community who are amazed by his boldness on the show, and the confidence he had for dating a woman decades younger than him. Others simply like his online presence. Ed has become a celebrity of sorts for the time being, though it remains to be seen just how long that will last.

Given Big Ed's popularity, it wouldn't be surprising to see TLC try to find some place for him on 90 Day Fiancé or one of the show's various spinoffs. His season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days isn't done yet though, and one can never predict how audiences will respond once they have the whole picture behind his relationship, and his treatment of Rose. Plus, this is 90 Day Fiancé. Next season could introduce a new person the world will fall in and out of love with all over again.

90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days airs on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the latest on television and movies in 2020 and beyond.
