90 Day Fiancé's fanbase is well-versed in TV drama, so everyone in that bunch might be holding up better than others as far as the heightened mayhem that has come out of election week goes. In fact, one particular fan – actor and screenwriter Seth Rogen – was relaxed enough to jokingly draw a connection between the extended vote-counting process and 90 Day Fiancé lore, revealing to the world in the process that he apparently watches the TLC reality series with some regularity.
Rogen took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon and, after seeing that the state of Nevada was still in the process of counting ballots, he responded to that update in a way that only 90 Day Fiancé would recognize, referencing perhaps the show's most notorious duo from the Nevada area.
The tweet, as many reading this already know, is a nod to Colt Johnson and his mother Debbie, who live in the Las Vegas area. "Colty" (or "Coltee," as others would spell it) is the nickname given to him by ex-wife Larissa Dos Santos Lima, so it would appear Seth Rogen has been following the series at least going back to that point. His reference delighted more than a few 90 Day Fiancé fans who were clearly unaware that he watched the show, including another extra-famous person who appears to also be a viewer, Chrissy Tiegen.
Surprise! It turns out a lot of celebrities watch television just like everyone else, especially at a time when many people remain homebound. Even still, Seth Rogen revealing his 90DF fandom is pretty surprising, considering the people involved are living and breathing people who may feel some kind of way about knowing they're being watched by Hollywood elite. It didn't take very long at all for Colt Johnson to hear the news that Rogen referenced him on Twitter, and he then responded with the following:
Colt's response was a tease that he voted for businessman and not-so-lucky politician Rocky De La Fuente, though with social media, it's always hard to say what's serious and what's a light-hearted joke.
Circling back to Seth Rogen, fans are clearly excited that he's a fan of the franchise. In fact, some were already asking Rogen inject himself more into the fandom.
Would watch 90 Day Fiancé if you did a commentary audio track a la Mystery Science Theater 3000.
That's certainly an idea that can happen in some way, though not quite like Mystery Science Theater 3000. 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk would be a great place for Seth Rogen to chill and share his comments on episodes from the flagship and its spinoffs, even though it is technically a commentary series reserved mostly for other cast members of the show. I'm sure given his status, TLC would grant an exception or two, assuming of course that Rogen would actually be up to something like that. Honestly, if there's one thing that could lighten the mood of this franchise at times, it's hearing his laugh every so often behind the chaos.
The comments on Seth Rogen's 90 Day Fiancé love continued, even from those that don't claim to be "fans" specifically. In this case, the spouse of an avid viewer chimed in, partly out of anger that they immediately understood what he was talking about.
I hate that i got the reference. I watch the show with the wife.
Personally, I'd love to know what Seth Rogen's thoughts are on some of the big drama happening outside the show, or his willingness to do a future tell-all special. It would be great if TLC took advantage of this interest, as I think if someone as funny and well-liked as Rogen would get a gig hamming it up with 90 Day Fiancé stars, it may very well be worthy of a spinoff on its own! 90 Day Fian-Seth? We can work on the title.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way airs on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for more on the franchise, and for more happening in the world of television and movies.
