When 90 Day Fiancé hosted Part 1 of Season 8's Tell All, fans learned from host Shaun Robinson at the top of the program that Stephanie Davison and her ex Ryan Carr would not be joining the special. Days after that surprising and arguably disappointing reveal, Stephanie spoke out against 90 Day Fiancé and alleged that, as some fans had suspected, her storyline with Ryan and his cousin Harris Flowers was faked.
Stephanie Davison revealed her claims to the world in the form of an Instagram video whose runtime reached nearly an hour. The reality star made several claims during the video, which covered some of the things that were shown her season of 90 Day Fiancé, with one of her wildest assertions being that she and Ryan Carr weren't actually a couple throughout the entire filming process.
So, I’m basically here to tell you that it ended up being the exact opposite. So much of it was contrived and one of the very first things I want to tell you is during production, Ryan and I did break up. I immediately called the producers and said Ryan and I are finished, we are not going to be on the show.
After that, Stephanie Davison went on to say that she eventually agreed to continue appearing on 90 Day Fiancé while faking her relationship with Ryan Carr on the condition that she could promote her personal business on the TLC reality series. That very business was indeed covered early on in Season 8, and there have been other 90DF couples who also say that they'd broken up prior to filming, and the show's producers asked them to fake it anyway, so there could be validity to Stephanie's claims.
Apparently, Ryan and Stephanie could only fake their relationship for so long because Ryan finally said he had enough and left the production altogether. Stephanie said she thought about leaving herself until it was suggested there was another way for 90 Day Fiancé to secure the rest of the footage to fill her story out.
I thought, 'Well, if Harris will fill in, I’ll try and stick it out.' So, as you saw on the show, I did call Harris and Harris came. He stayed with me and they totally turned that around.
Stephanie said that while Harris was staying with her, the producers and editors reportedly twisted the narrative to make it seem like he was playing her for a chance to get both himself and his family over to the U.S. Stephanie said at no point did she ever consider applying for a K1 visa for Harris, but rather that she encouraged him to get a work visa. Plus, she claimed she had no interest in a romantic relationship with him.
It's worth noting these claims directly contradict what was shown on 90 Day Fiancé, where Stephanie was seen speaking to the mother of Harris' children to obtain her blessing over bringing Harris to the U.S. Harris also appeared on an episode of 90 Day Bares All and confirmed that he had sex with Stephanie, and then hit on host Shaun Robinson soon after. Obviously, someone is lying here, but perhaps the full truth is somewhere in the middle of all the claims.
We can only speculate, as well as remind 90 Day Fiancé fans that the big Season 8 Tell All continues with Part 2 on Sunday, April 18, at 8:00 p.m. ET. Though fans aren't getting the answers to every question they've had during Season 8, there have been some surprising reveals worth tuning in for that no one should miss out on.
