This story is part of “Confessions of a Viral Star,” a video series where we take you on a nostalgic trip to uncover the faces behind the viral videos and inspect how the phenomenon of virality can change lives, for better or for worse.
What’s it like to become an internationally renowned reality TV star?
2020 was a big year for reality TV. We had the messy and sexy “Too Hot to Handle.” “Tiger King” left us scratching our heads. We also tuned in to “90 Day Fiance” where we met a budding Filipina icon slash meme queen in the making.
In our fourth and final episode, we had a chat with “90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days” cast member Rose Vega on her major glow-up after calling it quits with Ed “Big Ed” Brown. She opened up about the show’s iconic poolside “nge” scene, being able to provide more for her family, and serving as an inspiration for other single moms.
Move over, Kim K. There’s new reality royalty in town.
