90 Day Fiancé alum Syngin Colchester is living his best life! Despite detailing his harsh breakup with his wife Tania Maduro on season 2 of 90 Day: The Single Life, the South Africa native has moved on with his life and debuted a new girlfriend named Shayna. Keep scrolling to find out what Syngin has been up to since his split from Tania like his job, where he lives and more.
Why Did Tania and Syngin Breakup?
On season 2 of the spinoff, Tania and Syngin were on completely different pages regarding the future of their relationship. While Tania wanted to settle down and have kids, Syngin lived a much more carefree lifestyle.
Following their split in the summer of 2021, Syngin moved out of their shared home and began dating again. “I think it’s very important for me not to get into a new relationship with somebody, who’s not trying to change me as much,” he explained of his new dating outlook in a January 2022 episode. “Where they kind of genuinely accept me and accept my way of thinking about the universe.”
In May 2022, when asked by host Shaun Robinson at the 90 Day: Single Life season 2 reunion if there were any regrets regarding his separation from Tania, Syngin replied, “There’s a lot of thought after separation, you know, did we try hard enough? Was it something we could’ve done? … I feel like we were starting to become mean to each other, starting to say awful things just to piss each other off. So, I actually think we called it off at the right time.”
As for his relationship with his ex, Syngin later revealed in an Instagram Q&A in June 2022 that the pair “still talk.” When asked by a fan what his biggest lesson was from his previous marriage, he revealed, “That love is not enough.”
Less than a year later, Tania tried her luck in love during season 3 and the exes reunited during part two of the December 2022 tell-all.
While Tania initially decided to “widen her net” when it came to dating and was open to meeting both men and women, one of her previous dates felt she was leaving the door open to a possible reconciliation with Syngin by not divorcing him.
“I love Syngin, but it’s not like a feeling, like I still want to be with him,” the Connecticut native shot back during the reunion special. “That’s over and in the past.”
Where Is Syngin Colchester Now?
After splitting from Tania in the summer of 2021, Syngin first tried a cross-country move to Arizona. Previously staying with a friend, he later revealed that he’s left the Grand Canyon state. “It’s too hot out there … 110 [degrees] at night, no thanks,” he wrote on his Instagram Story.
Also touching on his tendency to go MIA on social media, the TLC star explained it gets “overwhelming” and he doesn’t “enjoy it.”
Syngin has since relocated to California.
Who Is Syngin Colchester’s New Girlfriend?
While the 90 Day Fiancé alum slowly got back to the dating scene during season 2 of the Single Life, Syngin took to social media to reveal he was in a serious relationship with a woman named Shayna.
“Let’s see what happens! (*Not* as seen on TV),” he shared via Instagram in July 2022, alongside a photo of the loved-up couple kissing on the beach. His new partner, who goes by Shan Francisco on Instagram, also took to her IG to share the new couple announcement.
“Loving you is my favorite thing,” she penned. As for Tania, she seemingly reacted to her ex’s new relationship via her Instagram Stories.
“In the woods camping,” she wrote as she uploaded a selfie, attaching a whatever emoji. “Red light is for stargazing, your night vision is affected by it. But ruined my night vision looking at my phone … so.”
Shayna proved that she was her boyfriend’s “biggest fan” in Apirl 2023, when she got his name tattooed on the inside of her lip (though she did go into it thinking that lip tattoos are temporary).
What Is Syngin Colchester’s Job?
Syngin has held several different jobs. He previously worked as a bartender. In June 2022, he said he had been “working on a farm in California” during an Instagram Story Q&A with fans.
Currently, he makes a living by creating NSFW OnlyFans content with his girlfriend, Shayna.
Syngin also revealed he uses his platform as a social media influencer for perks.
“I was just lucky to be on the show,” Syngin replied to a fan in November 2022 when they asked how he and Shayna can afford to live what appeared to be a lavish lifestyle in California. “All the time when people see me out having cocktails and great food, it’s because it’s always free if I just post … so I am using all my resources to make it happen …. But it gets hard.”
Is Syngin Returning to the ‘90 Day Fiance’ Franchise?
While it isn’t clear if Syngin has plans to film within the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, he did say “he took a break from it all.”
“Reality TV can really mess up things even more,” he wrote via his Instagram Stories in March 2023. “But I am working on a small show at the moment.”
