90 Day Fiancé actress Mahogany Roca has shared photos on Instagram of her weight loss. Why are fans still mocking Ben Rathbun’s girlfriend?
former 90 day fiance Star Mahogany Roca showed off her weight loss in a stylish brunch outfit on Instagram. Peruvian beauty Mahogany has been one of the most unique performers on the TLC show to date. Mahogany was not featured in the 90 Days Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5 trailer, which only showed her many photos with filters. Despite Mahogany taking to social media, fans were left wondering if she was real or a catfish cheating on Ben Rathbun. Her Ghosting Ben at the Peru airport was a major clue that Mahogany is fake. But it was during episode 10 that both Ben and the fans finally met Mahogany in person.

Even then, there were theories that this wasn’t mahogany, but rather a 90 Day Fiancee producer plant harnessed to continue a fake story. Some fans believed the Mahogany Ben chatted with never showed up, so a woman was flown in from the US to play Mahogany with him. It didn’t help that Mahogany’s Peruvian accent felt kind of artificial to her. Mahogany, also awkward in front of the camera, kept being unnecessarily dramatic and repeating the phrase “Oh my God,” which made the situation worse. But the main reason fans thought Mahogany was fake was because she looked nothing like the woman in her Instagram and Facebook photos.
Now that 90 Day Fiancé season is over, mahogany looks like the real deal to everyone. Fans have come to terms with the fact that Mahogany is a 22-year-old from San Bartolo who was in a relationship with Ben, a 52-year-old Michigan man. But Mahogany’s recent Instagram post about her Saturday brunch route has her followers scratching their heads in disbelief yet again. The law student looks very different from what she did on TLC, but that’s not just because of Mahogany’s weight loss. Fans think Mahogany’s face and hair in the photo are also very new to them. Also, this Mahogany cheekily shows off her new look, while Ben claimed she’s too shy to even make a video call.
Reddit user u/secretlyhidden92 shared a screenshot of Mahogany’s Instagram post in a thread asking, “Mahogany, are you sure that’s you?!” One of the top comments on this comes from TLC viewer u/ ninasarafina, who said, “She’s beautiful, she’s graceful, Shorty always has a different face.” A few fans noted Mahogany’s caption that using a translator was never her idea. “But from someone else, yes,” Mahogany added, which has been a common theme in her recent posts. According to Mahogany, “someone” asked them not to pick Ben up at the airport when he arrived in Peru. The person apparently called Mahogany one nine before Ben’s arrival.
Whether with the numerous filters on her photos or with her Instagram posts, Mahogany causes a lot of “confusion”. 90 day fiance fans. Her relationship status on Facebook states that Mahogany is single, indicating her and Ben’s split. Mahogany was also spotted speaking fluent English in one of her videos promoting cameo, which is also odd since Ben had claimed she didn’t know the language. Now, with her sudden weight loss, Mahogany has become even more unrecognizable to TLC viewers. But Mahogany has many admirers, and they sure don’t mind seeing more of her, whether her photos are filtered or unfiltered.
