It’s hard for viewers to believe anything about Ben and Mahogany’s story, and it could be because Ben just wants to join The Single Life next season.
On 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Ben Rathbun is still seeking Mahogany, but his journey feels disingenuous, and it could be because he’s angling to get on another 90 Day Fiancé show. It seems like Ben has ulterior motives for being on the show that go further than just wanting to boost his modeling career. There are several signs that indicate Ben has set his sights on 90 Day: The Single Life season 3, and due to rumors that the spin-off has already started production on the next season, Ben may have already been tapped.
After spending most of his life in a strict religious environment, Ben has been trying to follow his heart this season, which he claims lies with his Peruvian love Mahogany. But fans have little sympathy for Ben. There are huge red flags with Mahogany and it’s frustrating to Ben’s friends, family, and viewers that he doesn’t see them. Recently Ben arrived in Peru, even though Mahogany was sending signals that she doesn’t want to meet him. However, many fans have grown suspicious about whether Ben and Mahogany’s story is real or if it’s as fake as Mahogany’s filters.
It’s pretty hard for viewers to believe that Ben fell for Mahogany’s obvious catfish scam because Ben has revealed that he was catfished before in an almost identical way. Clearly, he should be familiar with the warning signs, but like fellow franchise star David Murphey, Ben showed up in Peru with no plan, wandering around like a John Travolta Pulp Fiction meme. However, unlike David, who seemed genuinely clueless, Ben’s actions feel staged. Ben has admitted that producers reached out to him first about joining the franchise, and it appears his storyline is mostly fabricated.
So the question remains, why did Ben agree to do the show? If his motives aren’t actually to find love with Mahogany, then he must have other goals in mind. Some fans suspect he’s trying to get more exposure for his fitness modeling career, but there are other opportunities available to cast members once they get their foot in the franchise door. Ed Brown’s now-fiancée Liz Woods can attest to the benefits of appearing on The Single Life, and that could be Ben’s endgame too. Ben has already started commenting about which other 90 Day Fiancé franchise stars he’s attracted to, and it seems he could be fishing for a season 3 storyline.
If The Single Life really is Ben’s ultimate goal, the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star isn’t hiding it well. Fans’ suspicions continue to grow, and it’s starting to feel like none of Ben’s story is genuine. Even if Ben does make it onto season 3, interest in his story will be low, and most viewers are hoping Ben turns out to be a one and done cast member.
