Now that Jorge Nava has been sentenced to prison following his marijuana arrest, what is Anfisa going to do for the next 2.5 years?
Obviously, Anfisa can work — but she is a full time student right now.
Is she going to have to quit school to support herself while Jorge is behind bars?
Jorge was caught with a massive amount of marijuana in his car.
He grows medical marijuana for a living in California but, unfortunately, he and his car and that marijuana were in Arizona, which has some of the most absurd drug laws in the nation.
As we reported, he has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
Anfisa says that Jorge may have a shot at getting out after 22 months, but she is clearly looking at two years without her husband.
But she might not have to quit her role as a student — because Anfisa could really make it as a YouTuber.
We know what you’re thinking — Anfisa may be younger than Jorge, but she’s a few years older than your average YouTuber.
But, as Starcasm notes, Anfisa could make money via YouTube in a major way, she’s already shown that she has the skills for it.
Anfisa edits her own clips for YouTube, and it really shows.
She is very particular about controlling what viewers see and do not see, and about making sure that there are only pauses at appropriate moments.
The evidence in her videos, which have smooth transitions from moment to moment, shows that Anfisa can keep her YouTube channel crisp and clean.
Then there’s the fact that Anfisa has plenty of business savvy when it comes to marketing herself on social media.
(No jokes about her alleged sex work, please … we’ll get to that in a moment)
The titles of her YouTube videos cover frequently searched items, which means that she’s followed not only by fans of 90 Day Fiance, but by people who have randomly come across her page.
This is part of how you diversify your audience. Some come to see how her life is going after the show, but others are there for makeup tips.
She knows how to stay relevant, and it works — her YouTube videos average 1.37 million views each. One got up to 4 million.
Back in July, and despite Anfisa’s denials, it looks like Anfisa’s alleged camgirl work was exposed.
While there is of course nothing wrong with being a camgirl or with any other kind of sex work, fans took an interest in her backstory.
Evidence was uncovered featuring a woman who looks conspicuously like Anfisa on furniture that looks like Anfisa’s old furniture, in an apartment that looks like Anfisa’s old Moscow apartment.
Even the camera angle was the same as the one that Anfisa used to audition for 90 Day Fiance.
Some have wondered if Anfisa might use sex work when those bills start piling up.
If she wants to do that, good for her! But Anfisa has denied that she appeared in the video. Jorge also claims that the camgirl is not his wife.
Anfisa might not need that. According to our research, it looks like your average YouTuber is going to bring in about $2,000 for every 1 million views on any video of theirs with ads.
Obviously, as with any advertising gambit, pay can vary according to factors such as audience demographics.
If Anfisa turns out a few videos a month for the next couple of years, that might help her to stay afloat until Jorge gets out.
Then again, some have speculated that she might run his — legal — medical marijuana business. Until Anfisa tells the world herself, we just won’t know.
