’90 Day Fiancé’: Tim Malcolm’s Family Called Jeniffer Tarazona a Stripper
90 Day Fiancé couple Jeniffer Tarazona and Tim Malcolm have been somewhat controversial during their tenure on the show. Tim Malcolm received a variety of disparaging and thoughtless comments from fans regarding his grooming habits, sexuality, and lack of physical intimacy with Tarazona.
However, it seems Malcolm wasn’t the only one facing down derision on the show. Apparently Tim Malcolm’s family had a few choice words for Tarazona when they first saw her. Additionally, some fans think there may be evidence that a portion of the couple’s story was faked by TLC.
Why Malcolm didn’t get intimate
Fans noticed that Tim Malcolm took his physical intimacy with Jeniffer Tarazona rather slowly during his time on 90 Day Fiancé. In fact, the two didn’t share a kiss for some time, and Malcolm notably refrained from having sex with Tarazona, despite sharing a bed.
Fans jumped on Malcolm’s back over this behavior, with some even theorizing that it was an indication of his sexual preferences. During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Malcolm explained himself.
Malcolm said, “It’s an invigorating day as a man, when you wake up, and you’re no longer controlled by your penis. And that wasn’t my agenda.”
“I’m almost 40 years old. 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,” added the 90 Day Fiancé star.
He went on to say, “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.”
Tim Malcolm’s family called Tarazona a stripper
During the 90 Day Fiancé tell-all episodes, TLC often chooses to air otherwise unaired footage. This time, Tim Malcolm caught flak from Jeniffer Tarazona when TLC decided to air footage of his family reacting to pictures of his new flame.
Malcolm showed his family Tarazona’s Instagram page, and it seems they were not impressed. “What kind of girl does a video of that on Instagram?” asked one of people gathered around. Malcolm’s family then asked what Tarazona did for a living. Malcolm said she’s a student, and his family joked that when he started saying “st-” they assumed he was going to say “stripper.”
Tarazona was not happy with what she saw, to say the least. She felt Malcolm’s family’s behavior was “completely disrespectful.” She added, “I care about Tim’s attitude when that happens. And I think that he didn’t respect me.”
Did TLC fake fans out?
Some fans of 90 Day Fiancé suspect that Jeniffer Tarazona and Tim Malcolm’s story together involves some level of fabrication. Soap Dirt recently reported that Malcolm and Tarazona actually met up in person prior to their season, despite Malcolm’s claim that their season was the first time they’d been together in person.
Allegedly, Malcolm and Tarazona applied for 90 Day Fiancé, but were turned down at first. Eventually, the two decided they would meet up regardless, and spent some time together in Mexico. Instagram account fraudedbytlc claims that the two posted pictures from the same place in Mexico a mere day after one another.
It seems the two didn’t click very well in Mexico, but TLC got back to them afterward saying they wanted them for the show after all. Soap Dirt has also suggested that the ring Veronica gave Malcolm for Tarazona was actually from Malcolm’s other ex-girlfriend, Paola — not from Veronica.
