What happened to Tarik and Hazel on 90 Day Fiancé?

When things left off with Tarik and Hazel at the end of Season 3 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, it looked like things could go either way. There was a lack of chemistry between them and although Tarik proposed to Hazel on the beach with an original song he recorded just for her, regardless of what fans might have thought of it, their future wasn't exactly written in the stars.

They returned on 90 Day Fiancé: What Now? in May 2019 and continued to share their love story with dedicated fans. In fact, Tarik even took to Instagram to give a heartfelt shoutout to Hazel on Mother’s Day. He wrote about how much he admired her for keeping her head held high among internet trolls related to the 90 Day Fiancé franchise and at the time, they certainly seemed like the words of a man still very much in love.

Tarik’s brother found a love connection in the Philippines too.

Tarik and Hazel are still trying to make it work and now, Dean's once skeptical brother has his own wife back in the Philippines, where Hazel lives. He once questioned everything about Hazel's motives with his brother and if he and his own wife are doing well, it might have been enough to inspire Tarik and Hazel to keep at it with their own relationship.

Hazel still isn't in the U.S., but there is hope.

In October, Tarik posted a photo of Hazel on Instagram and sung her praises in the caption. He wrote that she "exceeded" all of his standards and hopes in a partner, and that to him, she is "goals." In another post, Tarik called Hazel an "implausible, irreplaceable gift from God." They are basically obsessed with each other and so far, they have managed to make it work.
