If you were a fan of the TLC’s Show, 90 day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, you must be familiar with Anfisa Arkhipchenko. However, if you haven’t heard of her, let us bring you up to speed.
This Russian bombshell came to prominence after appearing on 90 Day Fiancé. That’s a reality TV Show, following international couples who have only 90 days to decide whether or not they want to get married – before their 90-days K-1 visas expires.
In case the couple hasn’t tied the knot within the 3-month period, the foreign fiancé has to go back to their home country.
Anfisa and her then-fiancé, Jorge Nava, cast in season 4 of the Show and their relationship attracted the most attention, compared to all other couples in that season. According to Jorge, they first met on Facebook. However, recently deceased podcaster Stevie Ryan said that Jorge fell in love with Anfisa on a website where she worked as a cam girl.
After getting married to Jorge in the United States, she didn’t work for quite some time, which made people wonder whether she was a “professional gold digger”. During the filming of a tell-all special in 2017, Anfisa got grilled by some of her costars about the allegations.
Her husband later put the rumours to rest, stating that he didn’t want his wife to work. His dream was to finally live together as a couple, while he would take care of Anfisa financially.
In 2018, Jorge was handed a two-and-a-half years prison sentence on charges of possession and the attempted distribution of marijuana. At first, he was looking at a 24-year sentence. His lawyer however, was able to work out a plea agreement.
Considering that the earliest possible release date for Jorge is July 2020, it is very unlikely that the couple will be returning for a new season of the Show anytime soon. This has made viewers of the show to sense a hard economic situation for Anfisa.
So, without the TLC paycheck and her huspand put in prison, many fans wonder what Anfisa is currently doing for a living.
Well, in a recently published video, the star came clean on her income sources and it’s a good hint to what she does for her money.
Anfisa Nava is now a big influencer. Having received a boost in the number of followers from the Show, Anfisa has uploaded more than 8 YouTube videos with an average of 1.37 million views each. In the video, she stated that through the ads placed in her YouTube clips, she can make a decent income, saying “100% of my income comes from online.”
She also said that brands do pay her to promote their products in the videos. The Russian beauty has partnered with brands such as Muddybody Detox Clay, FabFitFun, Pretty Little Thing, and Teami Detox Tea among others.
Her beauty isn’t all-natural however. She has opened up in the past about having received plastic surgery, including a nose and boob job, partially paid by Jorge, who seems to always have put his wife Anfisa first.
The 90 Day Fiancé star also makes some money on her Instagram account. Like YouTube, companies reach out to her to make posts about their products. In exchange, the companies pay her good commissions for their social media appearances alongside her photos. In addition, she uses social media to address rumors and take a stand on fake news about her personal life.
In the past, Jorge Nava and Anfisa Arkhipchenko would go out and eat a lot, not paying too much attention to their weight. As a quasi-single woman, however, TV star Anfisa seems to have put all her energy into training for a bikini figure!
To keep herself positive and busy after her husband was jailed, Anfisa has turned to competitive bodybuilding. She bagged 3 awards in the June 2019 NPC West Coast Classic Body Building Competitions in Riverside, California. This was her first big competition.
In a recent post, she revealed that after taking the NASM exam, she is now a certified personal trainer. Next up: her personal workout programs!
Full-Time College Student
What else does Anfisa do for money? Not many people know that before the star left her home country to marry Jorge, she was a student. The star was studying accounting and promised that once she settled in the US, she would continue with her education.
She is now enrolled in a local Los Angeles college, studying business administration.
If you loved Anfisa and was somehow worried about how she would support herself after Jorge went away, don’t fret. The fitness model is smart as a whip and seems to always find a way through the difficulties of life.
If anything, her newly found passion for bodybuilding has made her wiser and capable to enjoy her public life to the fullest.
Her changed looks and personality give her the advantage in this very American game of fame and we really can’t wait to see what the future holds for this beautiful ex-fiance.
