She’s telling all! Over the weekend, 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Rachel Walters joined blogger John Yates on Instagram Live for an informal interview where she gave fans an update on her husband Jon’s visa application, explained why she and Jon decided to accept money from fans via the Cameo app, and whether they would consider returning to one of the other 90 Day Fiancé spin-offs.
Rachel confirmed that she and Jon had not started their visa application yet because it costs an “absurd” amount of money. She also addressed a mini-scandal that happened after the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days tell-all when fans set up two separate GoFundMe pages to raise money for the couple — but they were removed just hours later.
“Yeah, we asked them to take it down. People are pretty much throwing money at us like, ‘Please, please, I want to help you.’ It’s really touching, but it feels wrong going on TV and then saying, ‘Okay, now can we have your money?’ with nothing in return. I feel like if anyone wants to do something for us, we just don’t wanna take it, say thanks, and never speak to you again.”
That’s when she and Jon discovered the Cameo app, where fans are able to request personalized video messages from their favorite celebs and reality TV stars in exchange for a fee — Rachel and Jon charge $30 each, respectively. Rachel felt it was a better way for fans to donate money because they’re able to get something back in return. She even said that on top of paying the $30 fee, some fans decide to tip as well and one fan tipped Rachel $50 for a video.
Besides all the scrutiny that Rachel and Jon got from haters and trolls on social media as their season aired, it sounds like they both would be on board if TLC decided to ask them back for one of the other shows in the franchise. “I think so, it’s been a blessing in disguise in a sense,” Rachel said. “Yeah, we would do it again.”
But since Rachel and Jon are already married, they would not be able to join the 90 Day Fiancé cast, so they would probably be a better fit for 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? or 90 Day Fiancé: What Now? Fans will just have to wait to find out where Rachel and Jon end up!
