Why Meisha May Be Faking Her Religion For 90 Day Fiancé Fame

90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 6 viewers have very little faith in newcomer Meisha Johnson, an American woman who’s accused of faking her Roman Catholic beliefs to get on the show and earn Internet fame. Meisha’s pursuing a romance with Nicola, an Israeli man who is a virgin at age 46. Many aspects of Meisha’s story don’t add up to 90 Day Fiancé franchise fans, who find her to be very inauthentic.


Meisha and Nicola were just introduced to 90 Day Fiancé franchise fans on Before the 90 Days season 6, episode 3. Meisha shared that she’s a glamorous American woman who is divorced, has two teens, and used to work in broadcast journalism. She puts a lot of money and effort into her looks, and appears to be well-off, based on how her home looks. However, Nicola is impoverished, and lives with his mother. He doesn’t work or have savings, and has very little experience with women. The only thing the couple has in common is their Roman Catholic faith.

Meisha Tapped Into A New Career

90 Day Fiancé franchise fans called out Meisha for claiming she had a religious conversion after seeing two huge burning suns while vacuuming. She decided that God was talking to her. Prior to appearing on Before the 90 Days season 6, Meisha worked in broadcast journalism, and even appeared in a low-budget film. She’s now growing a small Instagram following based on her faith, though her physical image is also important to her. Meisha behaves in an over-the-top and inauthentic way, which suggests that she’s trying to get noticed, rather than show her real faith. Therefore, religion could be an attention-getting ruse.

Meisha Chose Performative Fame

Many viewers are baffled by the way Meisha expresses her faith. Reddit user u/Kathleenbean, who identified as a Catholic, called out Meisha for seemingly faking her Catholicism. “What got me was her overdramatic rosary. What. On. Earth. Was. That. It sounded so fake and like she was turning the prayers into spoken word poetry,” the 90 Day Fiancé franchise fan wrote. “Meisha is like a parody of a Catholic. At first I was thinking she was just a nut, but now I’m thinking she’s using religion as her next business move,” another top user wrote back, commenting on the Before the 90 Days season 6 newcomer.

Meisha Is Trying To Expand Her Internet Fame

Overall, Meisha appears to have used her faith to tap into the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. Nicola’s best friend is confused as to what she sees in him, as they are extremely different people. Nicola is a simple man who may not have much to offer to someone as glamorous as Meisha. Meisha therefore appears to be on the show to extend her career and fame, rather than because she’s truly a devoted Catholic who fell in love. However, future episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 6 will give Meisha the chance to show whether she’s a performative Catholic, or really devoted to the faith.
