When season five of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days premiered in December 2021, Alina, who has a form of dwarfism called diastrophic dysplasia, became the franchise’s first differently abled cast member. She appeared on the show with her American boyfriend Caleb Greenwood, who she met in-person for the first time after 13 years of chatting.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in December, Alina said, “I don’t really see, you know, a lot of homophobic and racist comments anymore because people really know that it’s not OK, and it is not OK.”

But, she continued, “For some reason, there’s not much talk about ableism and how people can say degrading things about those who have disabilities, and maybe something can change with the show, because more people would know that it’s not OK to, I don’t know, shame someone for their height or for using a wheelchair or something.”
