Apart from her position in the legal field, the TLC personality earns a check for her appearances on both The Family Chantel and the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. 

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 works on a sliding scale and landing a spot on a spinoff will earn a higher payout.

“I am a 56-year-old woman, who’s only had one relationship,” Lidia told producers before the U.S. native’s arrival, in a teaser clip shared by Us Weekly. “I hope Scott is worthy. Because I didn’t wait 12 years of my life for a tiny thing.”
