90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days‘ Ella Johnson and her “Asian Prince” as she likes to call him, Johnny, are a match made in Cosplay heaven, but will they make it as a couple out in the real world? With all the obstacles the two have had to overcome so far, many fans are not so sure. But according to our sources, it looks like these two are not just a perfect pair in fantasy, but in real life too!
Ella, an Idaho native who has a self-proclaimed “obsession” with all things Asian, met her Chinese boyfriend Johnny on an online dating platform specifically designed for white women to meet Asian men. The two hit it off and soon struck up a relationship. Johnny lives in Jinan, China, and has a son from a previous marriage who lives with his parents while he works to support the family.
The two share a love of Cosplay and even bring their passion for role play…into the bedroom, as the two share steamy online dress-up sessions. But the two are finally ready to take their online love affair into real-time, as the two made a plan for Johnny to leave China, and come stay with Ella in Idaho for three months.
But the two’s plan hit a serious snag as Johnny’s Singapore visa was denied. Due to Covid, flights between China and America are complicated and also few and far between, so Johnny had decided to first fly to Singapore to quarantine for two weeks, before flying over to the U.S. to meet up with Ella in person, for the first time. But with the denied visa, fans wondered if the couple would ever be able to meet up. But while it is still unknown if Johnny does ever finally make it to the U.S., it seems the two are definitely still together, at least according to Ella’s social media.
In January, Ella posted this picture of Johnny to her social media page as she gushed “My man crush Monday” in the captions. While there are a few additional mentions of the show on her page, none of them include any other info about her and Johnny’s status. And unfortunately, due to China’s regulations around Instagram Johnny does not have social media, so there are no posts on his end confirming the two are still together. But we still feel quite certain that Ella would not post this picture, without the feelings being mutual.
This is good news for fans, as the last time we left this couple on the show, things were not looking good. But aside from the denied visa, Ella began to worry that there might be more holding Johnny back from visiting, and finally he disclosed he was worried about the trip due to the virus among other things.
On the other side, in China, the cameras were also privy to Johnny’s conversation with his parents who were less than thrilled at the idea of Johnny quitting his job as the sole breadwinner of the family, leaving his parents and son behind and flying through a pandemic, to be with an American girl he had never met in person. While Johnny tried to calm his parent’s fears, it seems Johnny might have actually shared in those fears as in last week’s episode, he relayed to Ella that he was not sure it would be a good idea for him to come to the U.S. after all. The episode ended on a cliffhanger and an ultimatum as Ella told Johnny he needed to come, and it was now or never.
But this is not the first time we have heard ultimatums in 90 Day Fiance, such as with Ella and Johnny’s costars, Memphis Smith and Monkii Hamza, who seemingly successfully navigated a marriage ultimatum and remain together. Because generally, as we’ve seen, the ultimatums tend to soften up with time. So maybe with a little time and understanding, Ella and Johnny will come up with another solution for them to meet. Ella had even contemplated going to China at one point. So it is possible that this country girl from Idaho will be willing to cross borders and cultural boundaries to make it to China to see if Johnny really is the “Asian Prince” of her dreams after all.
So will Johnny finally come to America to enjoy life in the country with Ella? Or will Ella fly across continents to finally live the Asian-inspired life of her dreams? It looks like we are just going to have to wait and see. But while we may not have an answer to who ends up where, we seem to have one on if they are still together. And all signs point to yes!
