Nicole Nafziger from 90 Day Fiance is one of the more well known cast members at this point. Despite having cornered the market on blandness, the former Starbucks barista always has the fans talking.
Maybe it’s the fact that Nicole and her “fiance”, Azan Tefou don’t exactly seem like a couple in love. Or maybe it’s because of those pesky rumors that he is married and has kids with his cousin. Or better yet, the reports that Nicole abandoned her daughter to go to Morocco in the middle of a pandemic and got stuck there for five months. And didn’t have a single picture to show of Azan while she was there. Wait, maybe all this makes Nicole not so bland after all.
The couples on 90 Day Fiance really leave an impression. Some good, some bad. One couple I would put in the “horrible but unforgettable” category would be Nicole Nafziger and (fiance?) Azan Tefou. The couple has been “together” for quite some time now and I use the word “together” loosely. My definition of together would be in an actual relationship. Nicole’s definition of together is being perpetually engaged to a man that may or may not have married and started a family with his cousin.
As if that wasn’t enough, Nicole’s plans to visit him this past spring ran into a snafu when the pandemic hit. That left Nicole stuck in Morocco and away from her young daughter. All for love, you say? If love means never actually having proof of spending time with the other person. It’s true, the only photos that Nicole posted of her and Azan during 5+ in Morocco were throwbacks. All of this leaving fans to speculate that Nicole is either having a complete relationship in her head.
Rest easy, everyone. Nicole Nafziger is back in the states after her long visit to Morocco. There has been a lot of discussion around Nicole’s decision to visit her fiance, AzanTefou, in the midst of a pandemic. Even former 90 Day Fiance stars were coming for Nicole over her decision to leave her precious daughter. Others questioned whether their relationship is even real. On a show full of frauds, it’s pretty epic to be called out as the fraud of frauds. As always, Nicole’s mom jumped to rescue. Not only did she defend Nicole but she cared for her granddaughter over the last several months while Nicole was holed away in Africa.
So Nicole left her daughter to visit a dude she loves more than a Starbucks drink with heavy-cream. Did I mention she boasts being Keto? Meanwhile, rumors are saying Azan is actually using Nicole’s money to fund a secret divorce. A divorce from his cousin. Does this girl have the same PR firm as Paul Staehle? Because this shit is bleak.
Unless a lot of footage is left on the editing room floor, there appears to be zero chemistry between 90 Day Fiance couple Nicole Nafziger and Azan Tefou. It just seems like he’s using her for money and the perks that come along with being on reality TV. And, she just, well, it just seems like she’s trying so hard to make this romance work, prioritizing their relationship over most other things in her life.
Recently, Nicole has received a lot of flack for being flying to Morocco to be with Azan during the coronavirus pandemic because she left her daughter May behind. To be fair, it’s not as if May is stranded. She has been with Nicole’s family members, but still, a five-month separation between a mother and a child is pretty long. Yes, there were some limited travel abilities at some points during the pandemic, but a lot of fans and 90 Day Fiance alums questioned Nicole for taking such a long hiatus from her young daughter.
In a tale as old as time, a pair of moms are going head-to-head on social media once again! In one corner of the ring, we have Laura Jallali– a fifty-something divorcee and 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way alum who left her child and Floridian life behind to move across the world on a quest for true love and some top-quality “jiggy jiggy.” In the other corner, we have Nicole Nafziger– a twenty-something young mother and 90 Day Fiance alum who left her child and Floridian life behind to travel across the world on a quest for true love and top-quality forbidden PDA. Wait, what?
You read that right. The ladies- who have eerily similar backstories- didn’t mince words on when addressing one another on Instagram recently. Nicole has never really been one to spend much of her valuable time addressing her plethora of haters, but Laura’s comment on her photo of May (and overall irony of the entire situation) certainly didn’t go unnoticed.
After having appeared on two seasons of 90 Day Fiance and one season of the spin-off series 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, the franchise’s most notorious ’will they or won’t they?’ couple is making headlines once again by providing fans with some fresh new antics to criticize.
Nicole Nafziger and Azan Tefou first graced our television screens back in 2016 when Nicole traveled to Morocco for five weeks to meet her “Arabian Prince” in person for the first time. Hoping to secure an engagement by the end of the trip, Nicole and Azan put each other through the wringer non-stop by butting heads over literally everything for nearly the entire duration of her stay. And yet- even SHE ended up with a ring on her finger. Whoever said true love was dead? But alas- here we are in 2020 and, although they’re still together, they’ve still never actually gotten married. They do remain engaged, however, and both are in Morocco- which fans have been quick to criticize. Why, you ask? I MAY give you a hint… (see what I did there?)
90 Day Fiance is one of those rare shows that spawns story after story, long after the seasons are over. Then we get a whole new installment, a whole new cast and the cycle repeats. It’s one of my favorite reality shows – I come for the weird couples and stay for their “relationships”. Some of them we root for to stay together and others we pray fall apart.
One couple that I’ve been hoping finally give up the farce and break up is Nicole Nafziger and Azan Tefou. From the get go, the relationship seemed doomed. A Florida barista with a penchant for french fries and a Moroccan fitness junkie just didn’t seem like a good match. When Nicole made the trip to Morocco with her young daughter, they sparred over pretty much everything. And ever since then, they’ve been on different continents. Nicole claims they are figuring out a way to be together but fans are calling BS. It’s even been reported that Azan has a whole family and kids with his cousin! But we aren’t the only ones urging this couple to just fess up and move on already.
