Season 8 of 90 Day Fiance introduced fans to Yara Zaya and Jovi Dufren, who, for the most part, didn’t seem destined to have the happy ending that so many fans were hoping for. Yara Zaya has often criticized her boyfriend for his heavy drinking and lack of responsibility, leading her to threaten to leave him (via Cheat Sheet). But after a bumpy ride, the two have stuck it out and found their own version of happiness.
TLC fans have often noted how Yara Zaya struggled with her move to New Orleans, especially since her future husband was hanging out in the French Quarter with strippers.
It was easy to see that the couple was used to the finer things life had to offer. Yara Zaya can often be seen with a designer handbag or dress, and Jovi Dufren admitted that he liked to travel in his spare time.
Of course, none of these hobbies come cheap, so fans need an answer to one particular question: What does Jovi Dufren do for a living?
90 Day Fiance: Jovi Dufren Loves His Job
During the hit show, Jovi Dufren talked about his line of work, according to In Touch, explaining, “I’ve been to about 25 different countries just for work. When I get to that country, I stay on the boat for the whole time for 28 days straight. I work four weeks on, four weeks off so with my time off, I would just pick a country to go to and go spend my four weeks there.” He went on to tell viewers, “Growing up, I always dreamed of exploring so it’s been great. It opened up my eyes and I’ve just become more understanding of the world.” Pipeline maintenance keeps Jovi Dufren busy, and while the couple doesn’t always like being apart, the absence makes for a more loving heart. He earns an average salary of $120,000 according to Reality Tidbit, which helps maintain the lifestyle they’ve grown accustomed to.
Although TLC fans feared his career would put a strain on their relationship, the two have thrived and welcomed a daughter together. Thankfully, Jovi Dufren still loves his job, and credits his ability to travel for meeting the love of his life. Fans are hoping the couple will appear in a spin-off soon for a much-needed update!
