Victor made it clear in the heat of the moment during his fight with Ellie on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way that he was the one giving Ellie a grand opportunity to live in Providencia and went so far as to call it a “privilege.”
The fight grew after Ellie expressed her concerns about money and logistics and Victor’s unrealistic grip on their situation in Providencia after a Category 5 hurricane decimated the small island.
The Other Way viewers think that Victor has it totally twisted and that he is not giving Ellie the privilege to live on the island with him because Ellie has to contribute and sacrifice so much to even be there.

In the caption, they made the point, “If you give something in lieu of money it’s a transaction, not a privilege (eye rolling emoji).”
In the comments, one onlooker wrote, “I hate when he says all you focus on is money. Easy for him to say because it’s not his money.”
Another observer said, “‘Don’t worry about money.’ -guy who doesn’t have to worry about money because he tricked a woman into supporting him financially.”
