90 Day Fiance fans are congratulating Biniyam Shibre following his recent victory in TLC scenes. But based on the latest evidence, the network appears to be frauding yet again with this storyline. So what’s the latest?
90 Day Fiance: Biniyam Shibre Wins Big Fight
As 90 Day Fiance fans know, Biniyam Shibre has a lot of big dreams. And even though Ariela tends to be a Negative Nancy most of the time when it comes to Bini’s aspirations, most viewers love the fact that the Ethiopian man has so many goals and aspirations.
Meanwhile, as 90 Day Fiance fans see in recent episodes, Biniyam Shibre’s dream came true when he stepped into the octagon for a fight. And based on the result, all of his training paid off – as he submitted his opponent 33 seconds into the bout by rear-naked choke.
TLC Frauding Again with This Storyline?
Meanwhile, even though the majority of 90 Day Fiance fans are happy for Biniyam Shibre following his victory, there’s a major detail that most viewers likely overlooked. Biniyam’s recent fight in scenes is billed as his first MMA fight. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
It turns out, there are clips of Biniyam fighting from 2019 – three years ago. And judging by the crowd in the old footage, it sounds like Ariela Weinberg’s love interest is in America. So is this another textbook case of 90 Day Fiance stretching the truth to make a good storyline?
90 Day Fiance: Not the First Time Ariela Weinberg & Bini Called Out for Frauding
Just recently, in Season 9 episodes, Ariela Weinberg appeared to change her hair and bra when she confronted her man in the gym for training with a woman. When she entered the gym, she wore a red bra and had her hair down. But when she got all up in Biniyam’s face, she wore a black bra with her hair up.
And this time around, TLC bills Biniyam Shibre’s fight as his “first MMA fight”. But based on the footage from three years ago in 2019, this is clearly not his first rodeo. Back then, Biniyam had longer hair, and he fought under the moniker “Baby Cool”. Meanwhile, even with these subtle differences, there’s no mistaking that it’s Biniyam.
Indeed, TLC is known for stretching the truth for the sake of drama. And even if they may not script scenes per se, there are certain instances that have production meddling written all over them – and TLC trying to pass off Bini’s most recent fight as his first definitely fits the bill.
