While 90 Day Fiancé fans appear fixated on Jen at the moment, 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days cast member Ben Rathbun also previously addressed the appearance of his eyes, after fans bombarded him with an equal volume of rumors and questions. One of Ben’s eyelids is noticeably droopier than the other, which led to fans questioning what might have caused the pastor’s ptosis. While viewers largely accused Jen of drug use, fans speculated that Ben might have had a seizure or stroke. which could, in theory, cause one of his upper eyelids to droop. The rumors got so extreme that Ben addressed talked about his eye on social media.

2 90 Day Fiancé Icon Asuelu Pulaa Has Unique Franchise Eyes
Currently, Jen and Ben have addressed their eye appearances due to the abundance of 90 Day Fiancé fan rumors, which shows just how out of line the chatter can get. 90 Day Fiancé star Asuelu Pulaa is also a target of fan speculation, as his upper eyelid ptosis lends him a sleepy appearance. Asuelu also has what many viewers call a, “blank stare,” which can indicate disinterest, though it appears to just be caused by his minor ptosis and dark eye color. “Who’s got the best thousand yard stare?” Reddit user u/Abrraxus asked, as they compared Asuleu to Mohamed Abdelhamed, in a post calling out the two men.
“Asuelu is undefeated in this category. Potential global leader in dead-eyed staring,” one top commenter wrote. Other commenters referred to Asuelu’s infamous blank stare and drooping upper eyelids as his signature look. Asuleu’s apparent disinterest has been an issue in his relationship, and might be a factor in why he is seemingly split from his wife, Kalani Faagata. However, it is Asuelu’s lack of action (and siding with his family) that caused friction with Kalani, rather that his appearance. Meanwhile, Asuelu’s drooping upper eyelid appears to run in the family.
1 90 Day Fiancé Fans Discuss Mohamed Abdelhamed
90 Day Fiancé villain Mohamed is a final franchise cast member who has been called out for his minor eyelid ptosis. Like Asuelu, the drooping of Mohamed’s upper eyelids gives him a sleepy appearance. This has opened up to criticism, as combined with Mohamed’s personality, voice, and actions, he comes across as extremely lazy and entitled. The 90 Day Fiancé villain speaks very slowly, and in a drawn-out voice that annoyed many viewers. He also demanded a lot from his ex-wife Yvette Arellano, as the Egyptian man expected Yve to do all the homework and bring home money.
While it was Mohamed and Asuleu’s eyes that caused viewers to compare them in the Reddit thread, the two men ended up sharing other traits. While Mohamed came across as far more villainous that Asuelu, they both frustrated their wives, and asked a lot of them leading up to their splits. Since viewers were annoyed with their traditional opinions about marriage, they ended up finding physical aspects of the men’s appearance to call out. However, ptosis is a normal medical condition that isn’t linked to drug use, laziness, or other traits that 90 Day Fiancé fans contribute to drooping upper eyelids.
