They may have each other, but they don't have any money! 90 Day Fiancé stars David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan have been open about the fact that they don't have jobs, and now people are accusing them of mooching off the government. Just weeks after they admitted to pawning jewelry for cash, several fans have taken to reddit to slam the newlyweds.
"Does Annie have a job yet? Do they get government assistance since their version of welfare from Chris is cut off? Just don't understand how they can afford to pay bills and what not," one person wrote, before adding, "Also we never see them making any food at their apartment; they are always going out to eat! Eating out every day is very expensive unless they eat off the dollar menu somewhere. I used to feel bad for Annie, but now I'm starting to think they are a match made in heaven because she seems to not care and only wants free fast money. She doesn't seem to be pushing him to get a job or anything like that."
Another agreed and commented, "They have a paycheck from TLC, at least David does, as Annie doesn't appear to have her green card yet. I think only David would qualify for any assistance, perhaps food stamps, since Annie is sponsored by Chris. TLC might foot the bill for some stuff if they want to film them out of the apartment."
Recently, David's bestie, Chris Thieneman, and his wife, Nikki Cooper, revealed just how much cast members get paid — and also stated that they "never saw a single dime" from the show. During a Q&A, Nikki took to one of the show's Facebook fan pages and dished that most get paid $1,000 per episode and $2,500 to appear on the Tell-All special. It should be noted, however, that not all members of the cast appear in all episodes.
Not to mention, Business Insider reported that unless you're a Ryan Seacrest or Gordon Ramsay, for example, you're not going to be raking in the big bucks. "Those kinds of paychecks actually go to very few people," the report states. "Most people starring on reality shows are making salaries that supplement the ones they make at their actual jobs, from their businesses, or from other opportunities afforded them by being on TV, such as licensing deals, book contracts, appearances, or food and liquor products." Hmm... Fit Tea always seems to be looking for spokespeople! ~Cough, cough~ "Cash Me Outside" girl.
