If you’ve ever watched TLC’s popular reality show, 90 Day Fiancé, then you have surely marvelled at some of the seemingly mismatched pairs who are seeking a quick marriage on the show. When time is of the essence and the couples must get hitched in a jiffy due to their international love affair, perhaps the notion that they may not be the perfect fit flies out the window.
Not that looks alone are what a relationship ought to be based on, but as viewers, it is easier to see what is presented outwardly rather than what is or is not going on in the reality show’s stars’ hearts and minds. When we see these couples on screen, what often stands out the most is their “opposites attract” appearance. This can make it even more difficult for skeptics to believe that the love affairs are the real deal. We see some truly odd couples, which makes for fun reality TV, but it’s hard to imagine these pairs walking down the street together without stares and finger-pointing.
But like any other people in the world, the 90 Day Fiancé couples are just a sample of the odd types of relationships which exist out there in the universe. Even celeb couples can give off that weird vibe and perhaps even be the next stars of 90 Day Fiancé, thanks to their unlikely attraction, polar-opposite styles and looks, and overall outward differences. See for yourself and you’ll imagine these celebs rushing to tie the knot in 90 days just like the reality stars.
15. Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden
Cameron Diaz is one of the most gorgeous women in Hollywood and she has been linked with some of the finest men in entertainment. But she found her “one and only” in Good Charlotte band member, Benji Madden. These two make for quite the unlikely pair – she, a tall drink of water and he, a pint of stout – yet the two are like high school lovebirds who would hang with completely different cliques. Rockers always do seem to land themselves some of the finest babes, so who’s to say Diaz wouldn’t fall under such a spell? She looks like the girl next door and he looks like the guy living in your basement, but they couldn’t be any more smitten with one another. If they were on 90 Day Fiancé, we wouldn’t be surprised.
14. Courtney Stodden And Doug Hutchison
Here’s one for the books. A washed-up older male celeb finds a blonde and buxom teenager to whisk away and claim as his wife. Her mom was on board, so the whole thing is a fairy tale made in heaven, right? Hell to the no, and this romance is ickier than anything else. Would we find a similar couple on TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé? It would not be a shock to see a “mature” gentleman courting a barely-legal lass for lifelong companionship. As long as he had the money to get her to America and provide for her, surely her parents would give “gramps” the A-OK. Cringe-worthy TV? Sure, but isn’t that what reality television is all about? By the time she turns 21, he’ll be getting his AARP card. No wonder they split — too bad we couldn’t witness it all on TV.
13. Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon
When it comes to divas, singer Mariah Carey is in the top 5 of all time. Her grandiose ways, fancy pants mentality, and over-the-top demands make Carey a force to be reckoned with. Yet her beauty, talent, and sex appeal draw the fellas in like bees to honey. That’s what happened to entertainer Nick Cannon, who was smitten with Carey for years. Little did he know his dreams would come true and the decade-older Carey would accept his marriage proposal. We all know that their relationship fizzled, but that’s just Hollywood for you. Meanwhile, a couple like this would fit in just right on 90 Day Fiancé — a fancy woman seeking a youthful and buff boy toy is perfect for reality TV. She’d be happy to find him while vacationing somewhere spectacular, and he’d be more than willing to leave his family behind to head to the US to live happily ever after with his American beauty.
12. Katy Perry And Russell Brand
America’s favourite pop tart and Britain’s most interesting import once made for an extremely odd couple, to say the least. Russell Brand never seemed like the settling-down type and neither did Katy Perry, but somehow, the two got together and said, “I do.” Their relationship ran its course, but a couple like this would make for perfect reality TV . Between bad-boy Brand’s sex addiction and Katy Perry’s taste for kissing girls, the couple’s chaos would be hard to turn away from if they were featured on the popular reality show. 90 days would be all this couple could stomach before ditching one another before holy matrimony anyway. A rush to the altar is only fun when a couple sees a future together. This pairing seemed iffy from the start.
11. Soon-Yi Previn And Woody Allen
The sordid relationship between Soon-Yi Previn and Hollywood staple Woody Allen has tormented the general public for years. Previn was the adopted daughter of Allen’s ex-wife, making him a pseudo step-dad of sorts to his now-wife. And what daughter wants to date her own mother’s ex-husband? The whole thing was super shady and somewhat immoral to many. Yet the two felt destined to be a couple and have been happily together for a very long time. By the looks of them – Allen being far older to say the least – this duo would be just the sort of couple TLC would cast for 90 Day Fiancé. Fans would cringe at their romance, yet wouldn’t dare to change the channel – just what TLC’s producers strive for in a television hit.
10. Madonna And Brahim Zaibat
We all know how “Madge” loves dating and showing off her slew of younger fellas, but chillin’ with Brahim Zaibat, a French-born, 31-year-old dancer, really puts Madonna in full-fledged cougar zone. Roar! Since Madonna is pushing 60, this lad is young enough to be her son, but she wouldn’t be caught dead with a man her age. Madonna prides herself on her eternal youth and mighty physical prowess, and saggy old men are no match for the fit and firm pop icon. While her flings with the young guys never last very long, at least Madonna snags some hotties while she’s on the prowl. A pair like these two would fit right in on 90 Day Fiancé. An older, more established woman and an up-and-coming potential gold digger make for a fun evening of television.
9. Mary-Kate Olsen And Olivier Sarkozy
Half of the Olsen twin pair is the teeny tiny Mary-Kate. From adorable child TV star to top-notch business and fashion mogul, this go-getter gal really made a name for herself. She has managed to stay out of trouble unlike many of her peers who grew up in the biz, and although she does not act anymore, she is as rich and successful as anyone could hope to become. While it is hard to picture the pint-sized Olsen sis linked romantically to anyone, the last person one would expect her to hook up with would be Olivier Sarkozy, a 48-year-old French banker who happens to be the half-brother of the former French President. The impressive height difference of this pair alone makes them 90 Day Fiancé candidates through and through.
8. Quinn Lundberg And Zach Galifianakis
Actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis is a true talent who impresses audiences with his on-screen acting chops and comedic timing. While he lands many well-loved roles, he is not generally cast as the “leading man” due to his less-than-perfect 10 looks. To each their own, but for the most part, ladies prefer the George Clooney types to the Galifianakis goofballs. That is why it is hard to picture him with such an attractive wife, the lovely Quinn Lundberg. Surely, she loves what’s on her hubby’s insides, but for those of us who do not know the couple personally, seeing them together seems like a mismatch. But a mismatch is just what works for 90 Day Fiancé. If the actors career doesn’t pan out, he can make the move to reality TV seamlessly!
7. Adrienne Maloof And Sean Stewart
The 56-year-old former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Adrienne Maloof, used to be married to well-known and super-rich Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Paul Nassif. But like many Beverly Hills unions, this one was evidently destined for divorce. Luckily for Maloof, a younger fella was waiting in the wings — Sean Stewart, the son of music legend Rod Stewart. At 37-years-old, the junior Stewart isn’t the fella most would expect Maloof to fall for; she’d be more appropriately suited for his pop who is 72. But when love is in the air, age is just a number. Who knows what Maloof’s ex thought of her new boy toy, but she probably had fun while the fling lasted. Looking at this couple, couldn’t you just picture them sitting on that interview sofa on an episode of 90 Day Fiancé?
6. Georgina Chapman And Harvey Weinstein
After all the horrid news about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, it is hard to understand how any woman could voluntarily be with him, but let’s give his soon-to-be-ex, Georgina Chapman, the benefit of the doubt in hoping she was none the wiser about his unfathomable immoral and alleged illegal behavior. That said, just looking at this photo of these two together has 90 Day Fiancé written all over it. She is a breathtaking beauty, and he is, well, far from one. Sure, success and fame could make any woman fall for a man, but Chapman does quite well for herself without one. He may have helped her rise to fame, but her fashion line, Marchesa, is beloved by the rich and powerful. As for Weinstein’s current situation, he may just have to look overseas for a new fiancé.
5. Hayden Panettiere And Wladimir Klitschko
The 28-year-old blonde actress Hayden Panettiere is one short little number and her hubby since 2009, Wladimir Klitschko, is as tall as a pine tree. But a difference in height has not prevented these two from falling in love and getting married. It will be interesting to see what their daughter grows up to look like! They may have issues seeing eye to eye, but she will always look up to him with respect and admiration – both literally and figuratively. As a pro boxer, Klitschko must be all rough and tumble in the ring, but with his darling wife, let’s hope he is always gentle and sweet. Although these two are famous faces, they must stir up extra attention when they are out together due to their remarkable difference in size. That said, they would look perfectly at home on 90 Day Fiancé.
4. Beth Stern And Howard Stern
Radio personality Howard Stern is best-known for his on-air persona that can be crude and dead-on honest. He has stunned his audience for years, and you either love him or hate him. But one person surely loves him, and that’s his gorgeous wife, Beth Stern. The two could not seem more different, but they are the classic case of opposites attract. Surely Howard would be attracted to Beth, but most people are in shock that she would fall for a fella like Howard. But word has it that he is a real softy on the inside, despite what we see and hear when he is in the public eye. Seeing a pair like this on 90 Day Fiancé would have fans reeling. Beauty and the Beast may come to mind, but Howard is surely laughing off the haters. Heck, he’s got one of the hottest wives around!
3. Leah Dunham And Jack Antonoff
The 31-year-old Leah Dunham is a major TV success with the HBO hit, Girls, being a favourite show of many. She is quirky, talented, outspoken, and down-to-earth, but when it comes to stereotypical standards of beauty in Hollywood, she breaks the mold. But her steady fella since 2012, musician Jack Antonoff, thinks she’s the bee’s knees. This interesting pair makes it work thanks to their mutual interests and belief in one another. But if we had to go by looks alone, this couple would be prime 90 Day Fiancé material. We’d love to watch the trials and tribulations that the two would go through in order to make it to the altar in a mere 90 days. Would their families get along? Would they know if they were ready to make such a big commitment? Too bad they aren’t really on the show, as they’d be a hoot to observe under pressure.
2. Sam Taylor-Wood And Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Sam Taylor-Wood is a 50-year-old woman and her husband, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is just 27 years of age. They have been married since 2012, making this May-December pair a real Hollywood shocker. Of course, if she were the younger of the two, nobody would give the pairing a second thought. But when the woman is significantly older, eyes roll and mouths hang open. This couple couldn’t care less though — they are happy as clams in their cougar-cub relationship. Hollywood may give their union a thumbs-down, but 90 Day Fiancé would gobble it up like a tub of popcorn. They’d make for the perfect couple for his reality show thanks to their major age difference and the appearance that she could be his mother. Let’s hope these two prove the public wrong and make it “’till death,” which unfortunately is bound to come a lot sooner for Sam than Aaron.
1. Christina Hendricks And Geoffrey Arend
Actress Christina Hendricks is one of TV’s most alluring beauties, with her ravishing red hair and curvy hourglass figure. She is a timeless classic who seems to get more attractive with each passing year. Her husband since 2009, actor Geoffrey Arend is surely a great talent, but when it comes to the looks department, he can’t hold a candle to his beloved wife. He must be okay with having a significantly hotter wife, but when people see this pair, the mismatch is top of mind. Hendricks must find her man to be fine, but on the surface to outsiders, these two are like night and day – the perfect formula for couples on 90 Day Fiancé! We’d love to see a pair like this figure out their future in a time crunch.
