90 Day Fiancé cast member Jorge Nava lost 128 pounds when he was in prison after a 2018 arrest. Take a look at Jorge’s best before and after photos.
While 90 Day Fiancé star Jorge Nava was known for his controversial relationship with Anfisa Arkhipcheno, he’s also quite celebrated for his weight loss story. Jorge, also known as Andrew Lopez, featured on 90 Day Fiancé season 4 with his former wife, Anfisa. Russian woman Anfisa was declared a gold digger for only being interested in Jorge’s money, and dumping him when he ended up in jail. Anfisa and Jorge got married in August 2017, and in September 2018, he was charged with possession of marijuana, and sent to jail for 2.5 years.
However, the outcome of Jorge’s prison sentence was an oddly happy ending for the California man. Jorge has gone from being a drug dealer to a family man, and he’s looking forward to getting married to his new girlfriend, Rhoda Blua, now that they share two babies. When Jorge got out of prison early, in May 2020, after roughly two years behind bars, fans began swooning over him. Although Jorge already had a girlfriend, TLC viewers were taking a newfound interest in Jorge, who’d weighed about 318 pounds when he went to prison. He was approximately 185 pounds when he was released.
Since then, Jorge has revealed his weight loss secrets to 90 Day Fiancé fans, and has admitted that he’s no longer fasting like he used to. His time in prison helped Jorge to find himself and become the man he is now. His well-wishers of him keep asking him to return to 90 Day Fiancé, this time with his baby mama and his children, Zara and Georgie. While that may or may not happen, here’s a look at Jorge’s weight loss journey, which may inspire those in search of motivation from their favorite reality TV celebrities.
The Mugshot Makeover
In November 2019, it had been nearly 14 months into Jorge’s 30-month prison sentence. That was when a new mugshot featuring Jorge was posted online (via 90 Day Fiancé/YouTube.) This new mugshot, compared to Jorge’s older mugshot (captured in September 2018) revealed major weight loss. Jorge’s leaner look was not surprising because of the conditions he was living in. However, at the same time, Jorge’s then-wife Anfisa had also turned into a fitness guru and competitor. She spoke about how she’d been keeping busy by focusing on her fitness while Jorge was in prison.
The Infamous Orange Jumpsuit Photo
Fans got to see the extent of Jorge’s weight loss after he shared a full-length photo of himself in March 2020, via Instagram. It looked like Jorge was easing back into a free life by using social media and flaunting his shocking transformation of him. Jorge looked svelte in his bright orange outfit, provided by the Arizona Department of Corrections. Jorge’s first-ever Instagram photo is also his most popular of him, and has gotten him over 57.4k likes. Many 90 Day Fiancé viewers still comment on Jorge’s Instagram photos, with a recent message saying, “If u did this i can do this also.”
Jorge Reveals His Weight Loss Secrets
One month after his early release from prison in May 2020, Jorge announced that he had a new girlfriend. It was Rhoda, who admitted that she’d reached out to Jorge after being enamored by his jumpsuit photo of him. In March of this year, Jorge and Rhoda welcomed their second baby. Jorge, who’s 35 pounds heavier now, has shared that reading the 1992 book Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins motivated him to change.
In his latest appearance in a 90 Day Fiancé spinoff, Jorge said that it was so easy to lose weight in prison, and he credits his 128-pound weight loss to “95 percent diet and five percent in the gym.” Jorge confessed that his prison was accommodating different dietary preferences, from vegan food to kosher food, and it was even possible to order from McDonalds. For now, Jorge is happy to join Rhoda by eating hamburgers and skipping the salads. At 185 pounds, he felt “really, really skinny,” and he is now embracing his dad bod.
