Mahogany Roca and Ben Rathbun from 90 Day Fiancé appear to have married after 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5, as per their new Instagram reveal. The 22-year-old Peruvian woman told 52-year-old Ben she was 24 when she met him online. Mahogany refused to show the former priest and father of three her real face on camera and even initially declined to meet him when he flew to Peru. However, once the show ended, Ben and Mahogany told fans they got engaged in a surprise YouTube reveal.
However, more developments seem to have happened between the 90 Day Fiancé’s Mahogany Roca and Ben Rathbun, according to the Miraflores resident’s latest Instagram update. Mahogany, who’s back on Instagram after a long break since posting several raunchy videos and photos on her feed, shared a new carousel post captioned, “I had company last week. Did you guessed?”
The first picture was of Ben taken from the back while he sat on a couch. In the second photo, Mahogany posed for a sultry selfie wearing contact lenses. In the third, the law student and very disheveled-looking Ben took a couple photo, and in the fourth, Ben was lying down in bed. What caught the eye of fans such as Reddit user u/solitachol was the shiny ring on 90 Day Fiancé star Ben’s left hand in the last photo, which made them ask, “Soooo they’re together and what’s with the wedding band ???”
“They’re easily in the top 5 of cringeiest couples on 90DF,” wrote user bobbybibi. “Worst storyline in the series. Worse than williamsss,” added loubot, referring to the original catfish of 90 Day Fiancé, the imaginary Williams who fooled Yolanda Leak. What some in the thread noticed was Mahogany’s name tattooed across Ben’s other wrist with some strange numbers on it. To some in the thread, they look like coordinates, while others in the thread wondered if the tattoo is just a temporary one, much like Ben and Mahogany’s ridiculous storyline on Before the 90 Days season 5.
For several long weeks, TLC decided to portray Mahogany as a catfish. Ben had already dealt with a scammer before, who was a man from Nigeria he was chatting with. He should have been careful, but he’d also sent $1,000 to Mahogany before even meeting her in person. She didn’t even come to meet him at the airport, and it took almost half the season for Mahogany to show up and confirm she was a real person. Still, Mahogany didn’t look anything like the anime character-like-girl she used to transform herself into with filters for her Instagram and Facebook.
90 Day Fiancé‘s Michigan star Ben, who came under fire for dating a woman his daughter’s age defended Mahogany’s filters by calling it “art” at one point. To top it all, Ben was arrested while the show was still on air for a probation violation related to his September 2020 arrest, where he was charged with one count of OWAI. Ben got fired from his job for hiding this arrest, but Mahogany has stayed by his side surprisingly. What won’t be surprising, however, is the 90 Day Fiancé couple Mahogany and Ben getting married. They have been spotted filming before in 2022, and a married Mahogany could mean she and Ben might just be on the next season of 90 Day Fiancé to air in 2023.
