The controversial American-Panamanian couple Gino Palazzolo and Jasmine Pineda have been making viewers’ jaws drop since their debut on the 90 Day Fiancé franchise several years ago. Between screaming fights, secrets, and drama with exes, these two are reality TV gold.

Gino has added his fair share to the drama, between sending Jasmine’s nudes to his ex-girlfriend and quitting his job without telling Jasmine, right before she moved to the U.S. However, it’s Jasmine’s behavior and quotes that not only make the couple the most memorable, but likely have TLC producers thanking their casting director every time she’s on-screen. Read on to find out why we think Jasmine Pineda is perfect for reality TV.

She’s Reactive (With Great Quotes)

On 90 Day Fiancé, Jasmine has revealed that trauma from her from past relationships has given her some insecurities, as well as a hard time trusting others. Because of this, sometimes she reacts explosively to things that viewers might find silly. For example, she famously got in a fight with Gino about the paint colors in his house, since Gino used to live in the same house with his ex wife, and Jasmine didn’t like the idea of living in a house with decorations that an ex picked out.

Later in the season, Gino sent Jasmine’s topless photos to his former sugar baby/ex-girlfriend. And that’s enough to make anyone a little reactive! The fight that followed after that incident was easily one of the best fights to ever show on reality TV. Nobody flipped a table, but Jasmine did jump across the bed to grab Gino’s trusty hat off his head, before delivering the speech that made her TikTok famous.

In the speech, Jasmine said she would leave Gino and find “THE sugar daddy of the sugar daddies,” and not a “crazy old man, alone and depressing from Michigan, give me a break.” Ice cold! As we all know, one of the things we love most about reality TV are the quotable moments, and Jasmine definitely delivers in that regard.

She’s No Stranger to Surgeries (and Secrets)

Is it really reality TV if the couple doesn’t keep secrets from each other? Especially when the secrets involve an ex or two? Gino and Jasmine have definitely both kept many secrets from each other since their debut on 90 Day Fiancé. Again, sending nudes to an ex-sugar baby? What kind of crap is that?

However, all reality TV fans know that plastic surgeries are as important to the plot as secrets about exes, and Jasmine has all three. In 90 Day Fiancé season 10, Jasmine revealed to the cameras that she got $10,000 butt implants without telling Gino. What’s more, some of the money for the surgery came from her ex, Dane. But Gino was already wary of Dane. Gino previously learned that Jasmine’s apartment (that he had been paying for) was in the same building where Dane lived.

However, the $10,000 butt implants are not Jasmine’s first surgery. She also told viewers that when Gino didn’t want to get intimate with her (which he claimed was because of all their fights), she got a surgery on her “pupunana,” as she calls it, and did not leave many details to the imagination. Which brings us to…

Jasmine Is Not Shy About Sharing Her Personal Life

Reality TV in general loves to give fans an in-depth look into its cast members’ lives—sometimes too in-depth. TLC especially continually shocks its viewers with risqué scenes and raunchy details about its stars’ sex lives and other things that most people would cringe at sharing on national TV.

Whether or not it’s scripted, Jasmine has to be one of the most forthcoming 90 Day Fiancé cast members in terms of providing in-depth details regarding her surgeries and sex life. Not only was the camera man was in the room with Jasmine when she got her “pupunana” surgery, but she also told viewers that she peed on Gino’s chest when they were getting intimate.

Fans also got a front-row seat to what ensued when Jasmine bought herself and Gino a doctor and nurse outfit for role-playing. Shocking details and footage definitely keeps reality TV viewers coming back, and Jasmine doesn’t seem to be shy in sharing it!
