90 Day Fiance star Big Ed has made a comeback to reality television and looking for love.
Big Ed made an appearance on season 4 of TLC’s popular franchise, 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days alongside his relatively younger girlfriend from the Philippines, Rosemarie Vega. After their breakup, Ed has been active on social media, posting several photos with other beautiful women.
However, he is still looking for love, but the reputation he developed since appearing on 90 Day Fiance seems to be working against him. Fans were outraged due to the 31-year-gap between him and Rose, and how he treated her during a visit to the Philippines.
Big Ed, who is now gearing up to return to reality TV for a new dating show, opened up about his horrible luck when it comes to online dating. The reality TV star appeared for an interview with Us Weekly to talk about his new show.

“I wasn’t catfished a few times, I was catfished 15 times,” he revealed. “Normally it’s the guy that’s posting the young picture with the shirt off, but I went balls out, said Big Ed. “Like, I gave them – here it is, 55-years-old, you know, 205 pounds…here I am.”
Ed revealed that the women on the websites misrepresented themselves. He went on to reveal that most of these women knew him from the show and used photos of themselves from several years ago.
“One girl, it was 23-years, and when she walked up to the restaurant…when she walks in, I didn’t even recognize her cause it wasn’t her,” Ed said. Aside from revealing some details about his nightmare experiences in online dating, the TLC cast member made an interesting admission.
Ed, 55, said he hired a dating coach, “I got some really good insight into who I am. Because one thing I revealed to her was that who I wanted in a partner was, I wanted this… and they don’t have to love me,” he added.
“And she’s like wait a minute, why not. Like why don’t you think you deserve love? So for me it was therapeutic. The show was really therapeutic,” he said.
The show Ed referred to is called Single Life, and it is slated to feature him, along with a slew of other familiar faces on their journey to find love. He did not give away a lot of details but stated that he has found a wonderful girl.
