- Rosemarie Vega’s rise to fame and success can largely be attributed to her appearance on 90 Day Fiancé with Big Ed Brown.
- Despite their failed relationship, Rose has emerged as a successful model, influencer, and business owner.
- It is unclear if Rose could have achieved her current level of fame without the help and exposure provided by Big Ed and the show.
Rosemarie Vega from the 90 Day Fiancé franchise has come a long way since she starred in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 4 with Big Ed Brown. The Filipina single mom and Big Ed became the show’s most recognizable faces in 2020 following their chaotic relationship, which was the source of many internet jokes. There was a collective sigh of relief when Rose dumped Big Ed. She’s living her best life in Manila as a model and influencer.
Rose admittedly owes her success to Big Ed, a former photographer from San Diego. Big Ed had a short-lived marriage in the ’90s to ex-wife Sandra Heckman, which lasted only for two years because he cheated on her. However, they had a daughter, Tiffany Brown. Although Rose was younger than his daughter, the 54-year-old 90 Day Fiancé star had fallen for the 23-year-old, whom he saw in the “people you may know” Facebook section. Big Ed and Rose chatted and connected enough for him to fly to the Philippines to meet her. However, Big Ed lied to Rose about his height and inability to produce more kids and chided her poverty when he met her in person.
What Happened To Rose From 90 Day Fiancé After Big Ed Split
While their relationship failed, Big Ed and Rose achieved tremendous success after the show ended. Big Ed emerged as the villain, making Rose the hero. Her former love interest is stuck in the franchise with Liz Woods, and Rose has moved on to greener pastures and has become a known face in her country. Rose has a successful YouTube career, earns a lot of money via Cameo, and is a professional model. She’s also an Instagram influencer with over 616,000 followers who frequently collaborates with brands for paid posts. Rose even runs a dry grocery store in her hometown.
Would 90 Day Fiancé Star Rose Be Successful Without Big Ed?
Rose wouldn’t have achieved the heights of popularity now if she didn’t appear on 90 Day Fiancé. Rose’s success may not have happened had Big Ed not signed her up to be on the show with him as his overseas girlfriend. It is no wonder Rose herself feels it’s a “blessing” that her clips with Big Ed went viral, making them instant internet celebrities. Without Big Ed’s help, Rose could have become famous independently, owing to her likable personality and down-to-earth nature. However, the world will never know.
Reality TV viewers all over the world and social media users might not have gotten to see Rose saying, “I like the view,” or making a disgusted face when Big Ed “haliked” her or asked her to shave her “hairy” legs. In fact, Rose became more successful than Big Ed, while critics kept wondering if she was just a gold digger looking to make her way to the U.S. It’s unknown if Rose could’ve made it without Big Ed, but the 90 Day Fiancé alum is certainly iconic today.
