Colt and Vanessa are probably done with the 90 Day Fiancé franchise for good because of a serious accident that happened to Colt during filming.
Vanessa shared this information during an Instagram Q & A on February 13, 2013.

There is some information floating online that Colt was injured in a car accident, but we now know that it was a filmed trampoline accident that caused this injury.
Vanessa had to move them from their second story apartment to a ground floor apartment all by herself in a matter of a few days.

In last September 2023, Vanessa shared that Colt had amassed $250k in medical bills.
