90 Day Fiancé cast members Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi have always been controversial, but Michael has been growing on fans more recently.
90 Day Fiancé fans are no stranger to Michael Ilesanmi, although he has grown on them after appearing in 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After season 7. Michael first appeared with his wife Angela Deem on 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days seasons 2 and 3, where they got engaged and planned to apply for a K1 visa for Michael to move from Nigeria to the United States with Angela. The couple later returned for Happily Ever After seasons 5 and 6, where they married in Nigeria after Angela realized Michael's K1 visa had been denied. Angela and Michael are currently starring in Happily Ever After season 7, where they are trying to decide if their marriage can survive.
Angela and Michael's storyline has never been a fan-favorite for viewers, but fans are growing to like Michael more after watching him on Happily Ever After. Angela and Michael's storyline in Happily Ever After season 7 have been nothing short of explosive, as Angela surprised Michael in Nigeria to confront him and see if he was cheating on her. Michael did not hesitate to stand up for himself, which fans were glad to see. Many fans find the relationship between Angela and Michael to be borderline abusive and applauded Michael for sticking up to Angela and telling her that he does not deserve the treatment she gives him.
While 90 Day Fiancé fans were glad to see Michael stand up for himself, they also admire the patience he has with Angela at times. Reddit user Beautiful-Big began a thread about Michael, writing, "Michael deserves a green card, the gold card, citizenship, the Purple Heart, and a hug." While much of Angela's behavior toward Michael is completely uncalled for, fans find Michael very reasonable when having normal discussions with Angela. She, on the other hand, is high maintenance, and fans commend Michael for being able to put up with it for so long while still staying patient and kind.
Many fans also believe Michael married Angela for the right reasons and not just for a Green Card. Michael and Angela have been together for years, and the entirety of their relationship has been long-distance, as Michael lives in Nigeria while Angela lives in the United States. Michael stayed true to Angela even after his K1 visa was denied, which shows he really loves her. There is not much that makes sense about Michael and Angela's relationship, but it seems that the couple is genuinely in love.
90 Day Fiancé fans have not always loved Michael, but he has grown on them after appearing in Happily Ever After season 7. Not only were fans glad he stood up to Angela, but they also his patient and kind personality. Fans also believe Michael is in it with Angela for the right reasons, as it is clear that he is not just using her as a way to get to the U.S. While Angela is one of the most controversial cast members on the show, fans have recently grown fond of Michael.
