It’s not reality TV fame that has inflated Jasmine Pineda’s ego, she was already full of herself when she was cast in 90 Day Fiancé. Jasmine, 36, and Gino, 53 are an easily recognizable couple in the franchise amongst the current crop of cast members. Jasmine from Panama and Gino from Michigan couldn’t have been more opposite personalities, but they’ve come together to give the franchise some of its most entertaining moments.
However, while Jasmine has become an MVP of the show, her ego-centric actions are jeopardizing her relationship with Gino. Jasmine had shown zero personal growth in the four years she’s been with Gino. She refuses to admit to her mistakes or realize her flaws.

8 Jasmine Disses Sugar Babies When She’s One Herself
Jasmine Lied To The Cameras
Jasmine was contacted by one of Gino’s former sugar babies (via ET) in 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5. The woman named Linzee Ryder claimed Gino was sending her Jasmine’s nude photos. Gino wanted to show off his new girlfriend to Linzee. Gino revealed that before he met Jasmine, he was looking for a long-term relationship, but typical dating sites were not working for him. He wanted to try something different so started using sugar daddy websites where he found girls he’d pay to go on dates with him. Gino claimed he soon realized it wasn’t a very good way for him to find true love.
Jasmine had told Gino, “I’m sorry, I’m not a sugar baby. I prefer to have three, four, five, six, seven jobs.” She said she didn’t approve of men like Gino “taking advantage” of women who needed money. What both Gino and Jasmine were then hiding from fans was that they’d met on a similar website if not the same one. Jasmine said her best friend had suggested putting her ad on a website for dating internationally. She claimed he had “no idea what the website was about” which was a lie that she made up to hide the transactional nature of the relationship.
Jasmine didn’t want to be a part of the “girls” that she was mocking. She didn’t work “seven jobs” when she supposedly lost her teaching position and resorted to openly asking Gino for money. Jasmine’s ego prevented her from admitting the truth on camera. However, Jasmine was also arrogant, haughty, and oblivious. Now that the truth was out in the open, Jasmine got her ego boost from making Gino do things as she commanded.

She wanted Gino to pay $700 a month as rent for her new apartment in season 5 when he was still not working. Gino had around $650,000 invested in stocks, which he uses for retirement savings.
