90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Razvan Ciocoi is from Romania, but there have been questions about Amanda Wilhelm’s boyfriend’s identity online. Amanda, a 31-year-old mother of two, revealed that she was married to a man named Jason Wilhelm, who died of ampullary cancer in 2022. Within a few months, Amanda started dating Razvan, 26, who she knew from TikTok. The newly widowed Amanda now dreamed of going to Bucharest to meet Razvan and preferably come back engaged.
But once Amanda reached Romania, she experienced uncertainty. Amanda wondered whether she was doing the right thing by coming to meet Razvan. She found out that Razvan was hiding a few things from her, such as his visa interview, so that he could come to the U.S. She grew suspicious of his intentions and worried Razvan was coming to America to become an actor. Razvan also wanted kids with Amanda when she mentioned she didn’t want more kids. Razvan had started to look like a sketchy character. And then there were questions raised about where he was really from.
Razvan Was Accused Of Lying About His Ethnicity
Razvan was a newcomer in the world of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days when viewers started to ask questions about him online, wanting to know him better. In June 2023, Reddit user @xXJuliex posted a thread claiming they knew Razvan and had witnessed him meeting Amanda on TikTok. They accused Razvan of using the show to launch his own career and being immature and clingy. Meanwhile, in the comments, a few viewers discussed Razvan’s ethnicity. One fan asked, “He looks Arab. Is he ethnically Romanian?” The original poster replied that while Razvan was born and raised in Romania, “his mom is Romanian, and his dad is Arab.”
Razvan & Amanda Went To Croatia To Meet His Family
Razvan and Amanda were not in a good place in the latest episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, yet traveled to Croatia to meet his family. Razvan’s parents did not know that Razvan and Amanda had nearly broken up, but their body language spoke volumes. At the family dinner, Amanda wanted to know more about Razvan’s ex-wife, such as why his mother and ex did not get along during Razvan’s short-lived marriage. At the time, Razvan’s parents revealed the ex-wife did not love their son, which deeply hurt them. Razvan did not speak about his ethnicity during the scene or confirm the Redditor’s claims about his father being Arab.
Razvan Addressed Rumors About His Ethnic Roots
However, according to RealityTitBit, Razvan did use Instagram to address people accusing him of not being Romanian. “So, a lot of people think that I’m not Romanian and I lied to all the Romanian people and I lied to DSC,” Razvan said in a video story. He mentioned that he saw someone saying his father is Arabic on Reddit, “which is not true.” The 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star continued, “So yes, yes, I lied. I lied because I always wanted to be a Romanian guy. I love Romania and I just lied, and I’m sorry for that.” He was being sarcastic when he said, “And I need to tell the truth guys. I’m actually Chinese.” Razvan technically did not confirm or deny the rumors and perhaps doesn’t plan on addressing his ethnicity for the sake of curious fans
