He’s staying busy! David Toborowsky has been enjoying his new job teaching English in Louisville, Kentucky, and he’s also got a star pupil in class these days: his wife Annie. The TLC alum gave an update about his gig on season 3 of the highly anticipated spinoff, 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?
“Annie and I met through a mutual friend in Thailand. She was just so sweet and she made me feel so young,” David revealed. “After I proposed to Annie, we filed for the K1 visa so that we could get married in the USA, but first I had to pay a dowry to her parents,” David explained, noting how the total sum was between $23,000 to $25,000. “Coming back to the US, it’s been pretty tough,” he said.
“I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find a job,” David, 50, reveals during one scene, noting how his good pal helped them get on their feet and allowed them to stay in a refurbished fire house in the mean time. David’s friend later sold the place and stopped helping out financially, but he did give them an offer to live in the manager’s department of a storage facility.
“There were so many obstacles along the way. It has not been easy, but it is getting better,” David said. “I am now working as a teacher at a university, teaching English as a second language. It’s kind of exciting, because my wife is one of my students.” Annie, 26, also showed love to her hubby.
Annie said she’s already learned so much! “David has been a good teacher,” she gushed. “This class has helped a lot with my English.” Annie revealed that she’s “so proud” of David, but unfortunately they are still struggling to make ends meet. On episode 16, there is no news about her work permit or Green Card application, which doesn’t bode well with Annie. However, David assured her that everything will fall into place. “I can work and do the best that I can and keep trying, like I’ve promised her,” he said.
Annie and David have come a long way since meeting at a karaoke bar in Thailand. In a recent social media post, he proved they’re still going strong with a heartwarming caption. “Absolutely the Love of My Life,” the reality star wrote alongside a photo of his wife. Looking ahead, we’ll see David sharing some big news with Annie regarding her visa status on What Now? episodes 17 and 18.
