Anfisa Arkhipchenko, a former star of the TLC series 90 Day Fiance, is open about why she will never return to the show
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Former ’90 Day Fiance’ cast member Anfisa Arkhipchenko has revealed the shocking reason she is no longer on the show. She recently stated on Instagram in response to a follower that she is not a “clown” to be used by TLC.
In 2021, she wrote in her comments section how ’90 Day Fiancé’ blogger John Yates shared that she would consider returning to the franchise if she was “paid enough”. According to the screenshot, one fan asked, “Would you ever go back to ’90 Day Fiancé’ if you asked about ‘the single life’?” The fan believed it would be a good time for Anfisa to make a comeback celebrate because she’s been “very scrutinized from those old gigs” and seems to be “a different person now.” While former bodybuilder Anfisa wouldn’t say if she’d be a good fit for ’90 Day: The Single Life,’ she said, “If I get paid enough, sure, but that’s not going to happen.”
Anfisa demands TLC end ‘exploitation’ of ’90 Day Fiancé’ celebrities
Many others agree that they miss Anfisa’s outbursts and red bag and TLC has to pay her what she wants. “She knows her worth,” one person said in Yates’ comments, but others called Anfisa an “abuser” and said they were “walking away.” Anfisa has garnered many ’90 Day Fiancé’ viewers a following by showing her true self on social media. Many people may never forgive Anfisa for her antics on the show. Perhaps they assume Anfisa was hounding Jorge for his money, despite their claims that it was “what the producers wanted.”
Anfisa came to the United States on a K-1 visa while filming season 4 of 90 Day Fiance with her ex-husband Jorge Nava. In 2020, Jorge and Anfisa separated. Currently out of prison, ’90 Day Fiance’ star Jorge is a father of two and married to Rhoda Blua. When Jorge left her life, Anfisa got involved in sports, winning bodybuilding competitions, becoming a licensed personal trainer and enrolling in a top-notch business school.
Anfisa is also seeing a new man that followers are dying to meet. But Anfisa wants to keep some aspects of her life discreet, most notably by not returning to 90 Day Fiance, a series that hasn’t been kind to her. When asked why she isn’t part of a ’90 Day Fiance’ spin-off like her franchise contemporaries, Anfisa informed her fans, “I know my worth and I haven’t been treated well or I haven’t gotten what I deserve.” Anfisa claims she didn’t agree to work as a “pennies for a dollar clown” if the network makes millions.
However, Anfisa’s outburst did not end there. She also spoke to other 90 Day Fiance cast members who are still working on the show. She hoped others would follow her example and “stop this exploitation.” But Anfisa acknowledges that for others, appearing on 90 Day Fiance is the “only way” to make a living. Anfisa previously admitted that she spoke to the TLC team and was given a deal by the network. Anfisa, on the other hand, thought she was happier creating her unfiltered social media content for now and didn’t see any “value” in what TLC provided her with.
Jorge and Rhoda wed in a Las Vegas church two days before Anfisa announced her citizenship on July 31. Jorge may be returning to 90 Day Fiance as he made a surprise guest appearance in the final season of 90 Day Bares All to discuss his weight loss and time in prison. Anfisa, on the other hand, was removed from all 90 Day Fiance content, including the show’s YouTube pages, raising doubts about how her affiliation with the network ended. Both Anfisa and Jorge reportedly “left” 90 Day Fiance in October 2018 because the network refused to give the couple what they asked for and renewed their contracts without their permission.
The ninth season of 90 Day Fiance premiered on April 17, 2022, and nothing has been said about season 10 of the show yet.
