Season 3 of TLC's 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days introduced viewers to Timothy Malcolm, a 38-year-old business owner, and his girlfriend Jeniffer, a 25-year-old single mother living in Colombia.
After traveling to meet his lady in person, Tim confessed to the show's cameras that he was keeping a secret from Jeniffer, and fans were quick to assume it had something to do with his gender, which surprised the business owner, according to a report from TV Shows Ace.
While on the show, viewers watched Tim offer skincare tips and tricks to his girlfriend and even showed her the best way to apply rejuvenating eye masks. Tim's focus on his appearance also led Jeniffer to question whether he was manly enough for her. During an Instagram Q&A session, one fan asked Tim why he acted in such a feminine manner.
The reality TV star said he doesn't live is life for the approval of others and his mannerisms have never affected his love life before.
"I have never had a problem having a girlfriend, so clearly there are some women who like men like me," he wrote to the curious fan.
Tim went on to address questions about the hate he's been receiving since appearing on the show. He said while he knew he would encounter trolls online, he wasn't prepared to be labeled as a transgender, as fans are convinced he was born a woman.
"Yes, I knew I would have haters," he wrote. "The transgender comments were not expected."
