Alina Kozhevnikova left the 90 Day Fiancé franchise after being fired from 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5, but she hasn’t allowed her racism scandal to stop her from being a public figure. Alina was axed from the show early, alongside her friend, Caleb Greenwood, after fans uncovered several racist and offensive posts that she made over the past decade. Although Alina was immediately panned by 90DF fans, she has continued to share her life online.
Russian woman Alina and American fitness enthusiast Caleb had a long-term online friendship that was rekindled after several years of silence, after they unexpectedly matched on a dating app. The duo went to Turkey to find out if romance was in the cards for them. While they gave intimacy a shot, Caleb eventually realized that it was too difficult for him to be with Alina due to their lifestyle differences. Alina, who has Diastrophic Dysplasia, then got the couple edited out of the show early, after TLC fired her following the unearthing of her old posts. This caused many franchise fans to turn on the female celeb.
Alina saw her popularity surge on Before the 90 Days, before it rapidly plummeted when her offensive online activity was revealed. She also lost fans for trying to pressure Caleb into being intimate with her. However, the friendship between Alina and Caleb persisted after the show. While Caleb deciding not to be with Alina did mean that they talked less, they remained close. She even credited him with helping her, and her best friend Elijah, to purchase tickets to flee Russia. They wanted to escape after their Russian credit cards were declined when they tried to make a purchase. Caleb helped Alina to successfully relocate to Argentina, after she vocally spoke out against the Russian government amid the ongoing war.
Alina now lives in Argentina, where the former 90 Day Fiancé franchise cast member works as a video editor. Alina has also kept up with her passion for music. and even released a song in Spanish to reflect her new living situation. While Caleb revealed on 90 Day Diaries that he is seeing someone new, franchise fans spotted Alina on Tinder, looking for love in Buenos Aries. As always, Alina has retained her signature confidence. She has now been in Buenos Aires since mid-May, and appears to be adapting well to her new environment. Alina also enjoys sharing self-love and body-positive posts online.
Alina and Caleb’s romance might not have worked out in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, but their friendship proved to be valuable for both of them. Caleb was able to continue telling his story, despite Alina getting them cut from Before the 90 Days, while Alina has found a place to live in a safe country, and appears to be doing well. While many 90 Day Fiancé fans dislike the Russian singer, viewers did think it was unfair that Alina was fired from the show when her costar Mike Berk wasn’t fired for similarly problematic posts that fans uncovered. Overall, many 90 Day Fiancé fans would prefer it if TLC was more consistent with their standards.
