While Ben Rathbun and Mahogany Roca’s 90 Day Fiancé story is already a bit egg-centric, his mentioning deviled eggs so often confuses viewers.
90 Day Fiancé star Ben Rathbun is madly in love with Mahogany Roca and, oddly, deviled eggs. Buff 52-year-old Ben took up fitness modeling at the behest of a work colleague, and his shirtless photos caught Mahogany’s attention. The 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days couple chatted online for 115 days. However, Mahogany suddenly stopped replying to Ben when he decided to meet her face to face in Peru. Viewers suspect Mahogany was never real and catfished Ben, which is why he’s back to posting thirst traps on Instagram.
Ben says he keeps himself in shape by doing intermittent fasting, as his first meal is at 2 p.m. He eliminates all sugars from his diet and eats a lot of fish and chicken. At the height of 6 foot 3 inches, Ben says he owes his youthful looks to his healthy living choices. Most of Ben’s Instagram posts show him working out in the gym, especially the ones on his Benjamin Sage page. While he refuses to entertain any questions about Mahogany, he doesn’t shy away from replying to thirsty comments. However, some of these comments only ask Ben why his bio says, “Feed me deviled eggs and I’m your friend for life.”
To add to the curiosity of his IG followers, Ben recently made a post where he spoke about how much his job as the Michigan Lupus Foundation Director matters to him. “My job is very very important to me, right behind God and fam. And deviled eggs … those come first,” Ben added in the caption. Ben included 13 hashtags about 90 Day Fiancé and of course, deviled eggs. When one follower commented, “I love deviled eggs!” Ben replied to them saying, « if my house was on fire and I was running inside to save my kids but there were deviled eggs in the kitchen … I’d go ahead and save my kids. But I’d hesitate in the hallway. Just for a second.”
Reddit user GirlsesCheetos asked, “So Ben, do you enjoy deviled eggs?” in a thread that received comments such as, “Is deviled eggs code for something cause wtf.” Viewers have previously admitted to being creeped out by Ben even before his 90 Day Fiancé debut. Ben made things worse by posting eight reasons why he is not a serial killer. His followers are now trying to deduce what Ben means by deviled eggs since he seems to be unhealthily obsessed with them. “It’s like Mahogany got replaced by food,” the original poster joked.
In general, viewers think Ben takes his social media activity a little too far which makes them label him “cringe” and “thirsty.” Ben has been accused of being attention-hungry for launching a Cameo page when he’d only appeared on one episode of 90 Day Fiancé. Ben seems to have had some acting experience in the past where he played Tarzan in a community theater production and previously claimed he was cast by the show’s producers after they saw his modeling shots. Ben is trying hard to pass it off as a joke now. Just like Mahogany’s selfies, viewers have started to wonder just how much of what Ben says is “real.”
