Before the murder arrest, Wooten appeared as a wedding planner on '90 Day Fiancé.'

Douglas Wooten (nicknamed "DJ Doug") appeared on one episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. 

"Pack Your Bags" captures Angela Deem's attempts to organize an "American-themed wedding with an African reception" for herself and her Nigeria-born fiancé, Michael Ilesanmi. 

As her wedding planner, Wooten advised Angela to come up with concepts that fit her budget — instead of trying to make her biggest dreams come true. Wooten also told Angela that they might be able to barbecue a goat as part of the "African-style reception."

"Pick your sin and I'll help you to accommodate it," Wooten told Angela on '90 Day Fiancé.'

"Pick your sin, and I'll help you to accommodate it," Wooten reportedly told Angela. 

"She wants caviar and champagne on a malt liquor budget," he summarized the initial meeting with Angela in a confessional. He added, "You can't have a fairytale wedding tomorrow and expect it all to happen for $100."

Some believe that Wooten appeared on the show as the owner of Angela's chosen wedding venue, the Cotton Patch Extreme in Hazlehurst, Ga. Others state that he and the star might have been friends.  

Either way, Wooten drew a great deal of attention with his appearance on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.

Some, like @Jw333331, ventured so far as to argue that Wooten would deserve his own TV show. At the time, several Twitter users expressed a great deal of interest in watching him deal with brides who had elaborate wedding plans in mind.

Regardless, Wooten likely played little part in Angela and Michael's wedding. After Michael's K-1 Visa was denied, the stars decided to tie the knot in his home country of Nigeria instead.
