90 Day Fiance brings forth reality TV situations that are high in stress, where the cast members are vulnerable, and judgment is leering. Within that matrix, there have been moments of escalation that have led to some pretty memorable fights over the years.
The fights have historically escalated from arguments over jealousy, control, malcontent, or frustration in the relationship, or from family drama that has been exhausted by words.
90 Day Fiance fans love the relationship drama and have consistently been entertained by these memorable moments and situations within the franchise.
Though there have been many situations that got tense, the 15 90 Day fights on this list rose to the next level of volatility that was shocking to viewers at the time and still to this day.
Whether it’s been verbal altercations that surged into physical violence or serious screaming matches that grew to a dangerous level, these fights have been the worst and encapsulate just how crazy 90 Day drama can be.
Each fight had its own unique set of circumstances that will be examined, and video of those fights is also available in this list.
