There’s no doubt Tarik Myers and Hazel Cagalitan have strong feelings for each other. The lovebirds documented their peaks and pitfalls during season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days and they are now appearing on season 8 of TLC’s flagship series, 90 Day Fiancé, to give their love a solid shot. Get an update on the couple and find out about the drama between them on the show, below! Beware: spoilers ahead.
Are Hazel and Tarik Still Together?
Based on their gushing social media posts about each other and new teaser clips from upcoming episodes, it’s safe to say they are still going strong.
Tarik, 46, couldn’t wipe the smile on his face when he greeted Hazel, 28, at the airport in the season 8 superteaser trailer. “I’m excited. I’m pumped. She doesn’t have to leave,” he gushed with a bouquet of flowers in hand.
In Touch confirmed the couple got married on June 7, 2020, in Petersburg, Virginia, but the pair definitely had some issues to sort through before making it official.
Religious differences and a lack of trust previously put them in a rocky place. It didn’t help that he admitted to reaching out to their former partner, Minty, earlier this season.
After he pulled out all the stops for Hazel’s bachelorette party in the March 21 episode, fans had confidence they would ultimately become husband and wife.
The couple’s wedding ceremony was officiated by their good friend Angela Watson, according to information In Touch obtained from Virginia Beach Circuit Court Clerk’s Office.
What Can Fans Expect to See?
This season, Hazel opens up about being bisexual while still wanting to maintain a relationship with Tarik. “Growing up in the Philippines, I just hide it, but here in America, I am excited about having [a] girlfriend,” she said in her confessional. In a follow-up scene, Tarik and Hazel seemingly looked for a third partner on dating apps and he asked if she wanted a “curvy or petite” woman.
Hazel will navigate how to come out to her parents who are “very serious, born-again Christians” in an upcoming episode.
Tarik’s brother, Dean, previously spoke out about their relationship and said he believes it’s the real deal. “I think he loves her, but the idea of her is what’s pushing it more and more because their culture is so different from here,” Dean said during a 90 Day Fiancé Live aftershow in 2018. “The women there, he likes their morals, or what he’s seen, I don’t know too much about her, so I don’t know if all of that’s there — but he says it is.”
Do They Post About Each Other on Social Media?
After going through a pregnancy scare in past episodes, it appears they are very much together post-wedding as the musician took to Instagram with a photo of his bride on December 4, captioned, “You think you know #Tarzel, but you have no idea.
Tarik shared another cryptic message addressing haters alongside a photo with Hazel in January 2021. “You are an original. You are misunderstood. You are ridiculed and hated on by many close to you. But you are still perfect,” it read. “I am an original. Misunderstood. Ridiculed and hated on by many close to me. We soak up the sun different.”
Hazel, whom he wrote the track “Round the Way Girl” for, also swooned over Tarik in a throwback post. “Sometimes I still pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming. Sometimes I still can’t believe that you’re real and that [you’re] mine,” his then-fiancée wrote alongside their PDA pics in July 2019. “I never thought that [someone] as amazing as you would fall in love with someone as silly as me. But I’m so glad that you did because my life has been nothing but wonderful.”
Season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé airs Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.
