Liz Woods keeps coming back to Big Ed Brown on 90 Day Fiancé and many viewers suspect the real reason is sadder than seeking reality TV fame.
Liz Woods and Big Ed Brown have earned plenty of criticism from 90 Day Fiancé fans, but some 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? viewers sympathize with Liz for staying with the older American. Liz met franchise villain Big Ed on 90 Day: The Single Life and went from being repulsed by him to continually returning to him after he has dumped her eight times. While some 90 Day Fiancé fans think Liz is fame-hungry, other viewers believe she has more heartbreaking reasons for her choices.
While many 90 Day Fiancé viewers lost sympathy for Liz for staying with Big Ed for so long, some fans think that she isn’t simply seeking fame by staying with him. Reddit user u/LOSTLONELYMOON shared a quote from Liz saying, “I was sleeping in my car” with the caption, “This is the real reason Liz is with Ed….suspected this for awhile.” Some viewers agreed that Liz has spoken about having a very difficult life before her relationship with Big Ed, which might explain why she keeps coming back to him rather than face the alternative of being on her own without him. “He does not appeal to me either but I think to get shelter and free food I would string him along for as long as possible I would fake interest,” u/Pinkgabezo wrote. Many commenters agreed that Liz was in a difficult position.
90 Day Fiancé Fans Think Liz Woods Depends On Big Ed
Many believe that Liz and Big Ed have a codependent relationship, while it appears clear that she relies on him and thus puts up with his poor behavior. “She was living in her car after her last divorce before she was working more and was able to support herself. And now that he’s taken her away from her job, she probably doesn’t feel like she has two feet to stand on,” u/PrizeRare2828 speculated. Other users agreed that Big Ed took away Liz’s financial means. “He’s done that exactly on purpose so she feels compelled to stay with him. He’s a classic abuser. Keep her away from friends and family, make sure she’s financially dependent on him for everything,” u/Lalina0508 wrote back.
90 Day Fiancé Fans Urge Liz To Explore Other Options
Although a number of fans can understand where Liz is coming from, viewers are urging her to seek other options. Many want to see 90 Day Fiancé‘s Liz get a job again so that she can support herself without help from Big Ed. This would mean going back to work or perhaps moving out of the very expensive city of San Diego. Franchise fans have also questioned if Liz has family and friends she can turn to for help, since she doesn’t appear to have a physical place she can reside when she is not with Big Ed.
Could Liz Woods Love Big Ed Brown On 90DF?
While many 90 Day Fiancé fans believe that Liz is dependent on Big Ed and some think that she is faking issues with him for clout, there is a third explanation to their never-ending relationship saga.
