On 90 Day Fiancé, there have been many interesting couples, and one of the most memorable is Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi. There seems to never be a dull moment when they’re in front of the cameras. Angela and Michael have become fan favorites and they always seem to spark a conversation. One moment in particular comes to mind when fans think of the couple. Read on to learn what that moment is and what fans have to say about it.
Michael calls Angela his ‘elder’ and it doesn’t go over well
During the Tell All for 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Angela sees a clip of Michael saying: “I think of Angela as my elder.” She responds by saying: “I’m not your elder. Michael, you just p***** me off. Did you really say that? Did you really say that Michael?”
She tells him they are done as she takes off her ring and walks off the set. However, the couple made up and they are still together now after all of that.
Fans react to an explosive moment between Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi
Fans of the series have been known to discuss this scene in numerous detail. One fan asked on Reddit why Michael never mentions that the scene where he’s calling her his “elder” was filmed a while back and it isn’t a recently recorded clip.
“The scene ‘I think of Angela as my elder’ was filmed a long time ago, before they even met,” a Reddit user said. “That’s the past, they’ve been through similar fights afterward and got over them. Why couldn’t Michael mention just once that it was recorded in the past? That’s like the very first thing I thought of right as she started flipping, she was acting as if he said it live.”
One fan is confused because if Angela is so sensitive about her age, then why is she mentioning how old she is as she walks off the set? It’s confusing and leads many fans to question why Angela is “so sensitive” when it comes to her age.
“What about her being so sensitive about her age?” a fan questioned.
The wording was off, which made things worse
Michael probably didn’t mean anything insulting with his wording. It’s just unfortunate that he didn’t use a different word instead. “I seriously think she thinks ‘elder’ = ‘elderly’ and got her feelings hurt,” a fan wrote.
Another fan thinks “mature” might have been better used in the moment instead of the word “elder.” “Mature could have been a better term perhaps,” a fan explained.
Fans of 90 Day Fiancé can’t seem to stop discussing Angela and Michael’s relationship. There have been so many memorable moments between them, and the moment Angela learns that Michael called her his “elder” will always be the most explosive.
