90 Day Fiancé pays their cast members $1,000 to $1,500 per episode,” a source told Radar in January 2019. It was reported that the cast’s compensation work on a sliding scale and landing a spot on a spinoff will earn a higher payout.

What Jobs Did Asuelu Pulaa Previously Work?

Prior to his 90 Day Fiancé fame, Asuelu was the activities director at a resort in Samoa — where his future wife, Kalani, happened to be staying while she visited the islands. 

“He kind of semi-stalked me around the resort but it was really sweet. He’d like watch after me when I was swimming in the pool, or if I was walking around,” the California native told producers in a December 2018 confessional. “And one of the nights I saw him shirtless, and I was like, ‘OK, this could work.’”
