90 Day: The Single Life's tell-all has been one of the most entertaining tell-alls in 90 Day Fiancé history, and a large part of that is due to the throwdown between two of the franchises' most polarizing figures. Big Ed Brown and Colt Johnson tore into each other during the reunion show, and there was a sense that there was no love lost between the two throughout the night as they took jab after jab at each other.
I recently got a chance to speak to both men about their throwdown and how things got so sour between the two during the tell-all. Big Ed told me that things were rough between the two before audiences were even aware and that they didn't improve when a certain someone joined the special:
Right away, Colt and I just, we didn't get along. I think we just decided that we weren't going to, you know, weren't gonna get along or whatever. And he's, you know, bless his heart, he's kind of a show-boater, and that's not me at all...We didn't start off the tell-all very good downstairs before we went on camera and then it just kind of bled on screen. And then, of course, we met Debbie.
Debbie Johnson joined the 90 Day: The Single Life tell-all and went to war with Big Ed when he told her she needed to stay out of Colt's life and let him "off the nipple." Debbie responded by telling Ed he needs to find a woman his own age and quit dating younger women like Rose Vega and Liz Marie. Debbie's appearance only seemed to stoke the flames of tension, as the rest of the cast seemed to look on, perhaps glad the attention wasn't on them.
Colt Johnson mainly antagonized Big Ed over the collapse of his relationship with Liz, as he felt that Ed took no responsibility for being a bad person in the situation. Ed, meanwhile, criticized Johnson's relationship with Vanessa Guerra and was mostly down on it. Ed shared a bit more about why he doesn't think the two will last and gave his overall thoughts on Colt post-tell-all:
You know, I, towards the end, I know I put a wager on them [Colt and Vanessa]. I'll give them six months because my feeling is, and no one's perfect, but. . .to have a solid relationship, you know, you have to have a solid foundation. And, they both started out cheating on each other and then they're getting married. How do you build a relationship based on that? So I don't put a lot of stock in that, um, you know, marriage lasting or engagement or whatever it is...I wish them the best. I mean, I don't wish harm on anybody or sadness on anyone. I hope they can - they can work it out and, you know, there are cases where it does work and I wish them the best. But, as far as us being buddies and drinking Malbec together, probably won't ever happen.
News broke after our interview that Colt Johnson and Vanessa Guerra actually eloped and are currently married. So far, it seems like the two are happy together, which is a long time coming for Colt, considering his whirlwind romances over the years. 90 Day Fiancé viewers first met Colt when he proposed to his now ex-wife Larissa Dos Santos Limas, and again to Jess Caroline Hanvey. Vanessa was mentioned by both women to be a major factor in their eventual split, which was what Big Ed was referring to.
When I spoke to Colt Johnson about his argument about Big Ed Brown, he didn't have a ton to say. I asked the 90 Day: The Single Life star if he may have laid into Big Ed too hard and got the following response:
I don't regret anything honestly. I think everything I said was accurate, and, you know, I don't know how he feels about me right now but I think he blocked me on most platforms, so whatever.
Colt Johnson's reveal that Big Ed blocked him was an interesting note that Ed didn't mention in our conversation. It would seem the two still have bad blood between them, and the chances of their relationship improving anytime soon seem slim to nil. Of course, that's not the end of the world since they only have to meet up during tell-alls, but it may probably make their next meet-up even more volatile.
