90 Day Fiancé star Syngin Colchester recently took to social media to reveal that he’s in a new relationship. The announcement comes shortly after Syngin took an Instagram hiatus after he was accused of allegedly abusing both his ex-wife Tania Maduro as well as another girlfriend he had. However, the South African man claimed that he simply took a break from social media because he found the platform overwhelming. Since Syngin and Tania filed for divorce, the former bartender’s followers noticed that he was doing a lot of traveling around the United States, and they suspected he had another serious partner. However, nothing was confirmed–until now.
Syngin and Tania debuted in 90 Day Fiancé season 7, and viewers were taken aback at many different aspects of their story. For starters, the Connecticut woman met Syngin when she flew to South Africa to meet another guy whom she had met on a dating app. However, they didn’t get along, so Tania went to a bar and met Syngin, who worked there. Once Syngin joined Tania in the U.S., fans were shocked to see that the couple planned to live in a shed in Tania’s mother’s backyard and that they opted for wedding tattoos instead of rings. Once the couple got married, it was clear they wanted different things. The two filed for divorce, and viewers began to follow Syngin’s dating journey on 90 Day: The Single Life.
Recently, Syngin took to Instagram to confirm he is no longer living the single life and is now dating a new woman. The reality star uploaded a romantic photo of him and his new girlfriend, who goes by “Shan Francisco,” kissing on a beach. Tania’s ex-husband Syngin captioned the photo with the simple comment, “Let’s see what happens!” The South African television star then cheekily added the line, “*Not* as seen on TV.” Despite this, Syngin included hashtags for TLC and Discovery+ with the caption. His new partner, Shan Francisco took to her personal Instagram account to upload a photo of the two of them as well. In her caption, she claimed that loving Syngin is her “favorite thing.”
Fans took to the comment section of Syngin’s photo to comment on his announcement. Although most of them wished him well, some followers also warned him that they were worried his new partner was only in it for the fame. 90 Day Fiancé star Tiffany Franco also commented on the photo, saying that she found the couple “weird” because she thought they resemble “siblings.” Regardless, she wished the new duo good luck. Syngin jokingly replied that his new girlfriend is his “step-sister.”
Although the South African reality star has allegedly dated several women since Tania, his newest love interest is the only relationship that he announced on Instagram. Many fans take this to mean that the couple is serious, but other fans think that the couple is simply seeking clout. Syngin’s ex Tania was reportedly filming for 90 Day: The Single Life season 3 in Aruba, but it doesn’t look like Syngin will appear on the spin-off again. Some viewers think that Syngin may have been fired from the 90 Day Fiancé franchise amid the abuse allegations, though nothing has been confirmed.
