No one expected Lana to turn out to be a real person except David Murphey. From the moment David Murphey said 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days viewers talked about her, everything seemed like a scam. But in the May 10th episode of the show it was revealed that Lana was not a catfish at all. And in the leaked footage from the special “Tell All” we learned even more about Ukrainian beauty.
90 Day Fiancé: David Only Dates Ukrainian Women
David Murphey was looking for Ukrainian women when he met Lana.
“When the internet was brand new, a tenant of mine showed me a website where you can meet Russian and Filipino women,” he wrote in a Q&A on Instagram about how he started dating foreign women. “I had an interest in Russians.” Within months, Ukrainian women on the site were outnumbered by the Russians. I went to both countries. A few years later, Ukraine became more western and didn’t even need a visa to go there. Russia needs a visa and you have to register wherever you go. It was just more difficult to travel.
After discovering those dating sites, he started dating only Ukrainian women.
“I stopped dating Ukrainian women 15 years ago,” he wrote. “Every time I did, I started thinking about Ukraine, so I stopped trying, so my heart was free in case I went to Ukraine. I dated more than 100 women in Ukraine. I’ve refused many marriage proposals and I’ve been rejected twice as well”.
90 Day Fiancé: What Have We Learned About Lana?
One of the most amazing things we learn about Lana in the next few episodes is that she doesn’t speak English. So she and David Murphey have been in a relationship for seven years where they can’t communicate.
Another weird thing about Lana is that she told David Murphey she wants a quiet life.
“She’s under too much stress from the show,” David Murphey said at Tell All. “A couple of weeks ago she told me all she wanted was a white picket fence and travel with me in the RV. He loves that idea.”
This is strange because, although we don’t know exactly how many gifts or how much David Murphey spent on her in the past, we do know that he gave her something and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the dating site. So, she doesn’t really seem like a girl who just wants the basics of life.
Also, let’s find out more about how Lana’s dating site works. According to Murphey, to enter the site she had to register with an agency. She talked to several men to increase her chances of getting a K-1 visa. Murphey even admits that Lana is still on the dating sites.
