New 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star Ellie Rose has spilled on how her partner Victor McLean and she are reacting to the sudden fame due to season 3. While Ellie has been known as the “pizza queen” due to her Central Pizza restaurant in Seattle, international recognition is sure to follow after her 90 Day Fiancé debut. Currently, Ellie’s storyline sees her moving to the island amid a category five hurricane, Iota cutting all communication between her and Victor. But Victor cheating before and Ellie forgiving him is something fans don’t approve of. Ellie has confessed how she deals with the negative comments and criticism.
The fact that Victor had cheated on Ellie and shockingly had a whole relationship with a different woman while being with her has made fans call out her decision to move. However, on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way episode 2, Ellie, who wanted to let her close friends know about her Providencia sojourn, also revealed that Victor was involved in a domestic violence incident and also has a daughter. The bartender had walked in on his ex-girlfriend, who is also his child’s mother, and another guy in bed. But Ellie assured her friends that Victor and his ex were on good terms now, so there probably were no more skeletons in the closet. Still, this didn’t make a difference to 90 Day Fiancé viewers who asked Ellie to run from Victor due to all of the red flags.
In an interview with ET, Ellie was asked about how comfortable Victor is about being in the public eye and her answer was surprising. As per Ellie, Victor doesn’t watch too much TV in Providencia, so he didn’t know about 90 Day Fiancé, which is why he was “open about it” when she told him about her application. “Now, he’s not super excited,” Ellie added because Victor is “super shy,” and now he tells her that he doesn’t want “people recognizing” him from the show. But Ellie feels there’s nothing that can be done now, so she said, “we’ll see how he adjusts.”
The host also wanted to know if Ellie herself was “mentally prepared” to tackle the “opinionated” fans of 90 Day Fiancé. Ellie’s reply was, “I mean I have read from other people’s shows or whatever comments section, and yeah they’re brutal.” She added, “I’m probably just gonna stay away from the comments section,” which Ellie thinks would be super helpful, but she really isn’t too sure about how to be prepared and will learn along the way.
What lies ahead for Ellie and Victor on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 3 has been teased in the trailer. While Ellie does locate Victor in Providencia, he seems to make her rethink her decision as she complains that he always talks down on her like she’s an idiot. “This is not what I signed up for,” she says and proclaims that she’s packing her bags and going back to America. A fan also recently spotted Ellie back at her pizzeria, so that does confirm she’s returned. However, if she brought Victor along with her has yet to be revealed.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on TLC.
