90 Day Fiancé star Ed “Big Ed” Brown introduced fans to his love interest Liz Woods on season 1 of the Discovery+ spinoff, 90 Day: The Single Life in 2021. After splitting by the season’s tell-all special, they reconnected on season 2 and announced their quick engagement.

While Big Ed and Liz have kept fans entertained with their onscreen drama following their return on the spinoffs, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? and 90 Day: The Last Resort, fans are curious if the couple is still together after Liz seemingly went public with a new boyfriend.

Fans got a front seat to the drama to the major split speculation, as the couple returned to TV screens on season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in March 2024.

How Did 90 Day Fiance’s Big Ed and Liz Meet?

Ed met Liz at his favorite local restaurant in San Diego, where she worked as a manager. Liz is a single mom and has a young daughter, and she initially hit it off with Ed as friends. After consulting with a dating coach on the season 1 premiere, which aired in August 2021, Ed plucked up the courage to ask Liz out on a date.

Ed and Liz Confirmed Their Split on the Season 1 90 Day: The Single Life Tell-All

By the time they appeared on the tell-all, Ed and Liz had already broken up. “Ed loves to rush our relationship when we finally became a couple, the next week I was meeting his daughter, the next week I was meeting his sister, his brother. I was thrown in multiple situations I was not prepared for. It took me months to introduce him to my grandparents. Months for that to happen, to break up two weeks later,” Liz told tell-all host Shaun Robinson, getting emotional.

The couple hashed out their issues on stage, but they seemed to leave the tell-all on a hopeful note that they would possibly reconcile.

After going through a rough time in his life, Ed tried to move on from Liz and went on several dates with different women, including one named Kaory. His friend Laura set him up with Kaory, who was her pal from childhood, and he traveled to her native country of Mexico so they could see each other face-to-face. 

Even though they tried to enjoy each other’s company, it was clear their personalities and life goals were quite different. 

“Kaory, she didn’t respond to my text messages,” he shared in an April 2022 episode. “She ghosted me.”

90 Day Fiance’s Big Ed and Liz Get Back Together, Get Engaged

In the wake of Ed’s failed journey to find love in Mexico, he returned to San Diego and his beloved dog Teddy sadly died shortly after. On a follow-up episode, the reality star expressed how appreciative he was for the flowers he received from friends and family while mourning Teddy’s death. Interestingly, one of the flower arrangements was from none other than Liz. He ended up reaching out to her, which reignited their romance and led to an engagement. 

In September 2021, Big Ed and Liz shocked fans when they were spotted out clubbing together in Santa Barbara, California, TMZ reported at the time. During their night out, Liz was wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger and Ed was introducing Liz as his “beautiful fiancée.”

Two months later, the happy couple confirmed their engagement news. During an interview with People in November 2021, they revealed that they reconnected when Liz reached out to Ed after his beloved dog Teddy died in August. Ed invited her over to his house for dinner and they discussed their relationship and he asked her a very important question.

“The question was, ‘Am I your forever?’ And she said yes,” Ed told the outlet. “And she ended up leaving for work and I did a beeline to the jewelry store and bought the biggest diamond I could find.”

Liz revealed that he didn’t waste any time getting down on one knee. “Back together on Saturday, engaged on Sunday!” she added.

Big Ed and Liz Return for ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?’ Season 7

The couple appeared on season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, which featured Big Ed and Liz’s journey following their engagement. The season documented the couple as they battled opposition from Ed’s family, along with major trust issues before heading to the altar.

“After Liz and I got back together, a lot of my friends and family did not understand why,” Ed told the cameras during the August 2022 debut. “Unfortunately for my mom when she found out, I think her reaction was, ‘You got to be kidding me.’”

Not only did Big Ed and Liz face outside opposition to their relationship — during an October 2022 episode, the couple got into a nasty fight after their engagement party when Ed accused Liz of having a previous relationship with a female coworker. The fight led to Liz throwing her engagement ring in a bush.

Big Ed and Liz were able to work through their blowup at their engagement party and ended their season on a positive note as they planned to move out of San Diego together for a “fresh start.”

When the couple returned for the season 7 tell-all in January 2023, Liz revealed Ed broke up with her and asked her to move out of his home. While Ed and Liz were still seeing each other post-split, but not exclusively. During part one of the special, it was revealed that Ed was on an Asian dating website. It was also brought to light that Ed spoke to his ex-girlfriend Rose Vega within the last few months.

After admitting that they weren’t clear on where their relationship stood, Ed and Liz seemingly called it quits while on stage during part 2. 

“I’m tired of all the lies and deflection and projection,” Liz said after learning that Ed had been talking to Rose behind her back.

After revealing she also “lost” respect for him, Ed responded by asking for his engagement ring.

Did Big Ed and Liz Get Back Together After the Tell-All?

Despite their issues, Ed and Liz worked through their problems and remained a couple even after their brief split at the season 7 tell-all, which was filmed in September 2022.

“Rascal Flats said ‘Life is a Highway,’ but it’s been more like a roller coaster,” Big Ed shared alongside a compilation of romantic pictures with Liz in December 2022. “The thing about roller coasters is though … is that they are fun as s—t.”

Big Ed and Liz also seemingly reconciled with Big Ed’s mom. That same month, the couple reunited with Ed’s estranged mom to celebrate the nuptials of a friend.

Liz took a selfie with her future mother-in-law, captioning the cute photo, “Dancing the night away with mom.”

A week later, Liz took to Instagram to show off her dazzling engagement ring, confirming she and Big Ed are still going strong. 

“Babe surprised me with a new band,” the 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After alum captioned the pic.

Big Ed and Liz Return for ‘90 Day: The Last Resort’

Following their run on season 7 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Big Ed and Liz returned to screens for the debut of 90 Day: The Last Resort

The couples therapy show, which premiered on August 14, 2023, followed five fan-favorite couples who were struggling with issues in their relationships and marriages.

“Big Ed and Liz have found themselves in a cycle of make ups and break ups for the last two years. With dwindling trust and fear the other is looking for a way out, they are hoping to break down barriers and rebuild towards a new life, which holds the possibility of a new home and a potential wedding,” TLC told Entertainment Tonight. “More indiscretions will possibly derail their efforts to plan for the future.”

During the series, Ed said The Last Resortwas his “last chance” to “really make it work” with Liz. “So it’s like all or nothing,” he added.

Apart from therapy, Ed and Liz endured physical challenges alongside the other couples, including one that had one person running blindfolded through an obstacle course while their partner guided them with their voice.

“Let’s hope they still wanna be therapists when they’re done with all of us couples,” Liz said at one point.Ed ruffled feathers as his fellow castmates accused him of cheating in the obstacle course. He was supposed to be listening to Liz’s instructions to guide him through the course, but he moved so quickly and with such ease that even Liz was sure he could see through his blindfold. After the activity was finished, Ed admitted to the therapists that he cheated in the obstacle course because he didn’t trust Liz.

While Ed and Liz’s relationship issues were dim in comparison to the rest of their costars, the pair got into a heated argument right before the recommitment ceremony.

After Ed caused drama between Jovi Dufren and his wife Yara Zaya by revealing he was texting a stripper, Liz was forced to break up a fight between Ed and Jovi that nearly turned violent.

Despite Ed later apologizing to Liz for putting her in that situation, he blamed Jovi for “coming at him.”

Liz didn’t accept his explanation and fired back, “Clearly, you’re not ready to apologize then if you’re making an excuse and you’re bringing it back to somebody else.”

Ed insisted she shouldn’t have “interjected” herself in the situation. “It’s between Jovi and I, not you,” the TLC personality stated. “And I’m sorry. I appreciate you standing in for your man, but it made me look weak. It made me look like I can’t defend myself.”

Liz felt Ed should’ve been thankful for her jumping in to protect him. After Ed couldn’t understand why Liz was upset, she told him, “F—k you,” before leaving the room.

In light of the fight, Liz admitted she wasn’t sure if she and Ed could work through their issues and wondered if they shouldn’t move forward with their plan to live together in Arkansas.

“Right now, a part of me just wants to call it quits because Ed says he’s trying to change, but he doesn’t realize he’s running out of chances real fast,” she admitted in a confessional.

Despite Liz initially feeling uneasy about walking into the recommitment ceremony, Ed proposed — which she accepted after also asking him to marry her and presenting him with a ring.

Big Ed and Liz Return For ‘90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After’ Season 8

Fans saw Big Ed and Liz together as they planned their upcoming nuptials when they returned for season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? in March 2024.

“Following a successful therapy retreat in Florida, Ed and Liz have settled in Arkansas and are planning the wedding of their dreams,” the network teased in a press release in February 2024. “But the two still have a lot to overcome, including making sure Liz’s daughter is well-adjusted in their new home, and coping with the mounting financial pressure of a move and a wedding. Will the couple finally walk down the aisle or collapse one last time?”

Liz seemingly had a grim reaction to the announcement of the new season, sharing the news on Instagram with the caption, “March 17th – Our Final Chapter & The Biggest Drama Yet.”

During their season 8 debut, the couple revealed they moved to Arkansas to be closer to Ed’s family. Liz sold her portion of the restaurant she owned in San Diego and dove into a real estate career alongside Ed as their finances were “underwater.” In addition to their disastrous financial situation, Liz’s daughter, Riley, was also staying with the couple for the summer.

While Liz felt that her daughter being home with them made her and Ed stronger, it also caused friction as Ed would complain about the “messes” she made.

Liz and Ed’s constant bickering would lead to a much bigger argument, which was revealed during the April 21, 2024, episode.

The TLC alums got into a tense exchange in front of the Arkansas native’s family about the spice level in the taco pasta that Ed made for Liz’s daughter. After the blowup, Liz woke up in bed alone and discovered Ed was “gone.”

“Then yesterday, I received a text message from our officiant telling me how sorry he was that the wedding was called off,” Liz said through tears during a confessional. “Ed canceled our wedding without even telling me.”

Liz called Ed a “coward” and a “weakling” for how he handled the situation. “The only thing I can think of is Ed’s getting cold feet and he never actually really wanted to get married because although we’ve been the best we’ve ever been, we still have our issues,” she explained.

Ed was adamant in not apologizing to Liz as the situation made him realize that they were not “meant to be together.”

“I’m not angry at Liz,” he told cameras. “I’m at a different stage in my life, and I can see clearly that it’s not gonna work — that Liz needs to go live her life, and I need to live mine.”

Are 90 Day Fiance’s Big Ed and Liz Married?

Before the abrupt wedding cancellation, Big Ed and Liz were supposed to tie the knot in front of family and friends on August 29, 2023, in Bentonville, Arkansas. The bohemian-themed nuptials were planned to begin at Holland Barn Venue at 3 p.m., according to their wedding website.

Are 90 Day Fiance’s Big Ed and Liz Still Together?

Big Ed and Liz were still going strong as of October 2023 as the dad of one took part in an Instagram trend where users showed something on camera that they spent “way too much money on.”

“But don’t regret it at all because it’s freakin’ sick,” the voiceover played as Ed panned the camera to show Liz sitting right next to him.

However, things seemingly changed in December 2023 after the latest season of 90 Day Diaries was announced and Liz shared a grim preview.

“A lot has happened after The Last Resort,” Liz captioned the announcement via her Instagram Stories. “See you next year.”

The following month, fans noticed a hand in Liz’s social media posts that seemingly didn’t belong to Ed.

“His stubborn princess,” the San Diego native affectionately captioned a January 2024 snap of an unidentified man wearing a gold watch tying her shoes. Earlier in the week, Liz shared another snap while on a brunch date and the same gold watch was spotted in the snap. Liz left no hints, simply clinking her mimosa glass with her breakfast companion and uploading the post without a caption.

Big Ed didn’t mention Liz’s new love interest directly; however, he did seemingly take a dig at Liz’s cryptic post of another man tying her shoes.

“My darn shoe came untied…!” Big Ed captioned a photo of two girls tying his shoes on January 7, 2024, adding the hashtags: “mystery girls tie Big Ed’s shoe” and “trip and fall for Big Ed.”

A photo of her mystery man surfaced on social media on January 14, 2024, shared by 90 Day Fiancé blogger Shabooty and while Liz didn’t confirm the romance, she shared a pointed message via her Instagram Stories.

“Loving my natural beauty, attitude and body,” she captioned a selfie via her Instagram Stories that same night.

Days later, footage surfaced online of Ed in Las Vegas for the 2024 Bigo Awards, where he seemingly confirmed his split from Liz. While being interviewed for the January 9, 2024, event, Ed revealed his “favorite moment” on the app was meeting someone new.

“And she came out for New Year’s but that’s tight lipped,” Ed told the interviewer, captured by 90 Day Fiancé fan account 90 Day The Melanated Way. “That was probably my favorite moment.”
