90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Hazel Cagalitan Tags Herself an ‘Actress’

Hazel Cagalitan is from an impoverished area of the Philippines. Her family lives in a tiny apartment that seems to only have room for the bare necessities. When Tarik visited his prospective in-laws, they all sat on a bed. It looked like the bedroom doubled as a living room as well.


Tarik Myers is in Manilla to ask Hazel Cagalitan for her hand in marriage. He believes she is the love of his life after conversing online. Now that Tarik Myers traveled thousands of miles to meet Hazel Cagalitan in person he has some doubts about Hazel’s agenda. Tarik Myers wants to know if she loves him for who he is. Or is it money and a green card she’s after? Both of which Tarik can offer her as his wife.

Tarik Myers – Did He Find Love or an Actress?

While Hazel’s Instagram account is private, you still get to see the bio she’s created for herself and she lists herself as an “actress” first. The question here is – does she consider herself an actress now that’s she’s been on the reality show? Or… was she an actress hired to take part in this reality show?

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days – Show Ratings

Recent news suggested Rachel Bear and Jon Walters’ visa was never really a huge issue. But that’s not the way it was presented on the show. This makes one wonder what is really going on behind the scenes. 90 Day Fiance is a reality show and unless it provides drama or some other type of entertainment value not many would watch it.

This season premiered back on August 5 and it had the highest-rated season premiere in franchise history, according to Broadway World. The show had 2.2 million viewers tuning in. The cast provided the drama needed to keep the viewers coming back week after week to see what happens next on the show.

Tarik and Hazel Add Dean

Was Hazel Cagalitan a woman who believes she is suddenly an actress now that she’s been on this reality venue? Or was she an actress used for this reality show? In all fairness to the show, it is hard to believe this woman is an actress. Hazel is very meek and quiet on 90 Days Fiance and besides bringing Tarik Myers to her family’s church, there’s not much drama offered here.


It was almost as if 90 Day Fiance needed to bring on Tarik’s brother Dean to spin some drama for the show. Without him, there wasn’t much entertainment value offered by this couple. Other than the facial expressions on Tarik Myers at the screaming church, Hazel and Tarik were fairly mundane to watch.

Now that Hazel got her 15 minutes of fame, maybe she does consider herself an actress. The 90 Days Fiance Before the 90 Days show stopped filming a while ago. Fans are seeing episodes filmed earlier this year. This is probably the closet this young woman will get to fame.
