The self-made fitness fanatic and certified personal trainer recently used her Instagram story to address rumors about her time on the TLC reality show. The Russian beauty was 20 years old when she joined her fiancé, Jorge, 27, on the show. Anfisa never held back with her demands, wanting everything luxurious and lavish, which Jorge couldn’t afford.

Anfisa Nava answers fans’ questions on Instagram
On February 7, Anfisa took to her Instagram story to host a Q&A for her 800K followers. Among the questions asked of her was whether 90 Day Fiance is scripted. Fans have often believed this in the past when a couple’s story doesn’t quite add up. They believe TLC does this for the additional drama on the show.
Anfisa answered the question, saying, “Not scripted per se but there’s a plan for everything.” For example, she said they would tell them that they are going to film a scene at a certain place the next day. TLC would tell them what they wanted them to talk about.
Anfisa did 90 Day Fiance for fun
Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance portrayed the Russian beauty joining Jorge Nava in the U.S. on her K-1 fiance visa. However, she revealed she didn’t do this for love. In fact, she told a fan that the reason she came to the States was “for fun.”

It made her 1,000 percent stronger and taught her so many lessons. Being on the reality show also gave her this platform on Instagram with many followers.
