90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way fans have reacted to Daniele Gate’s spending habits on the show. Daniele and her partner Yohan Geronimo began their love story in season 2 of Love In Paradise: The Caribbean. The show is one of the spin-offs of the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. It chronicles the journeys of international couples who met in the Caribbean as they try to navigate their complicated relationships.
The two met while Daniele was vacationing in the Dominican Republic, and despite their 10-year age difference, the two immediately hit it off and eventually got engaged. During the show, the couple had several ups and downs, largely due to the cultural disparities between them and their families and Daniele’s desire to have a child. However, the couple stayed together and tied the knot in an intimate beachside ceremony during the show’s finale.
The couple is now cast members on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way — with Daniele relocating from New York to the Dominican Republic to be with Yohan. Although Daniele has struggled to accept the cultural shock, the couple still seems happy together and has been flaunting their seemingly happy marriage on Instagram. Nevertheless, Daniele recently came under heavy scrutiny from fans due to her spending habits which became a focus after a trip to the botánica. The businesswoman surprised fans after she racked up a $200 bill while shopping despite her constant talks of frugal spending.
90 Day Fiancé Fans Think Daniele’s Spending Habits Is a Red Flag
In 2022, Daniele Gates filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy, and according to some reports, she has liabilities adding up to nearly $250,000. According to some rumors, some believe she is on the run from the IRS, and her financial issues are the major reason she moved to the Dominican Republic. So it was a big surprise to fans as they watched Daniele spend $200 in a botánica. Most of the show’s fans felt that was an excessive amount to spend there — especially given her money troubles.
On Reddit, one fan u/MakinBaconPancakezz, started a thread to discuss Daniele’s unhealthy spending habit. The OP highlighted her inappropriate spending in the botánica and claimed it wasn’t surprising she is bankrupt. Many fans agreed with the OP, with some users highlighting her dire financial situation. OhEmGeeShelly said,
“She’s $200K in debt and had to declare bankruptcy… they also don’t make that much.”
Another user, u/TheSpiral11, queried Daniele’s “financial wisdom. The user narrated how they had previously shopped in the botánicas in DR and Haiti and emphasized how $200 was excessive to spend in the place.
Fans Think Daniele Is a Hypocrite
Although Daniele and Yohan make a point of showing off their marriage on social media, things have not been smooth sailing between the pair. One of the contentious points in their relationship has been finances and bill sharing. During season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, viewers watched Daniele constantly nag at Yohan over how much he makes despite knowing his financial status before deciding to move to the Dominican Republic to be with him.
Following her recent extravagant spending at the botánica, fans have slammed Daniele over her spending habit and labeled her a hypocrite. The fans feel she has no moral grounds to constantly harass Yohan over money when her spending habits are pushing them into a financial crisis. While commenting on the thread, u/summerofevidence wrote,
“And let’s remember the shade she threw at Yohan for saying he can only contribute $90 to rent.”
Daniele may be thousands of miles from New York, but her old habits have caught up with her in the Dominican Republic. She may need to get herself together fast before she gets into a bigger financial mess than she is right now.
