Devin comes from Searcy, Ark., but that isn’t the only twang fans are hearing. Devin Hoofman's accent has perplexed 90 Day Fiancé viewers, and it’s even turned into the butt of online jokes.

It’s important to know that the other part of Devin’s accent comes from the 2 years she spent living with her fiancé, Seungdo "Nick" Ham, in Australia. Don’t forget, Nick is from South Korea, but he also sounds a bit Australian, too.

Devin wasn't taking her TMJ medication during filming.

As the cameras rolled, Devin faced not only the challenge of a long-distance relationship but also the physical toll of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).

Devin openly admitted that during filming, she wasn't taking her TMJ medication, leading to increased pain and facial swelling. This surely added to what viewers refer to as her "slow accent." Maybe people should be a bit more compassionate and think before they post.

Reality TV comes with its fair share of stress, and for Devin, coping with the pressure meant turning to binge drinking and eating during the filming.

In an honest confession on her Instagram, she acknowledged the toll the show took on her mental health, using these coping mechanisms to manage anxiety. This candid revelation adds a layer of vulnerability to Devin's story, showcasing the real, human side of those thrust into the limelight.
