’90 Day Fiance’: Did Jeniffer and Tim Actually Meet Before the Show?

Jeniffer Tarazona and Tim Malcolm have been getting a lot of criticism about their relationship. Fans have doubted the validity of their union since they first appeared on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

The biggest problem that people have had with Tarazona and Malcolm was that neither of them seemed particularly attracted to the other. But now, rumors have been swirling that there might actually be another reason that Tarazona and Malcolm’s relationship seemed off.

Tim Malcolm’s sexuality

Fans were shocked when as the show went on, it seemed that Malcolm never wanted to get intimate with Tarazona. The Colombian beauty must have been feeling strange about the whole thing too because at one point she even asked him if he was gay.

“Jeniffer’s not the only one that’s said that,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Let’s be honest. There’s a lot of people that have speculated that there’s all kinds of issues going on.”

But Malcolm insisted that he and Tarazona hadn’t been intimate yet simply because sex wasn’t as important to him as it used to be.

“I’m almost 40 years old,” he continued. “I want to be in love. I know sex is an important part of love, but it’s not everything like it used to be. My biggest goal was just building a foundation that I thought would be able to last because I don’t want to be divorced. I’ve waited this long to get married. I’ve never been married. I think that’s just strange that society just thinks if a man says no then he’s gay. If a woman says no, it’s fine. But it’s like the double standard that society has. I kind of laugh about it. I do have some feminine traits. The gay thing was kind of out of left field for me.”

And he went on to deny claims that he was transgender.

“The episode that just aired, you saw me get into a hot tub with Jeniffer, and I saw online that people were literally screenshotting it and looking for scars that I had my ‘breasts’ removed,” he said. “It comes with the territory. You’re going to get people that just have to come up with these outlandish ideas.”

“I’m not transgender,” he continued. “I think it’s cool for the people that want to do that if that’s what you want to do with your life, but that’s not me.”

Did Jeniffer Tarazona and Tim Malcolm meet before ’90 Day Fiance’?

But there may be something else that is off about Tarazona and Malcolm’s relationship. Though they claimed to be meeting for the first time on the show, recent reports have shown that that may not be the case.

According to the Frauded by TLC podcast, Malcolm originally wasn’t chosen to go on 90 Day Fiance. Once he got rejected, he allegedly went ahead and met Tarazona in Mexico.

“What we see on the show of them meeting in Colombia is actually not the first time they have met,” one of the hosts said on the podcast. “They have actually met prior to this on a trip to Mexico. What happened was Tim and Jeniffer had been talking online … but TLC wasn’t really interested at the time (around September 2018).”

But once they got the call that they may be on the TLC show, the couple apparently decided to go along with the charade.
