Many 90 Day Fiancé fans initially believed Yara Zaya was appearing on reality TV for the first time. However, Jovi’s beautiful partner has an extensive reality TV history.

A number of Reddit fans uncovered the fact that her Ukrainian name is actually “Yaroslava.” Those fans played private detective to find out more about the 90 Day Fiancé cast member and her reality TV history.

Yara, 25, moved to America on season 8 of the TLC reality show to start her new life with Yovi Dufren. However, a much younger Zaya looked very different in her various appearances. These days, the cast member has more confidence and is standing up for herself, especially against Jovi’s parents. She has also started her own fashion business. However, back in 2014, Yara seemed much more vulnerable and when watching the old footage, fans really started talking about her.
