Like no other pair in the series, Caleb from Arizona and Alina from Russia have a unique narrative about how they met as teenagers on Facebook. Thirteen years later, when Caleb planned to travel to Russia, the two of them reconnected through a dating app. Alina’s desire to learn more about Caleb led her to change their destination from original Turkey to that country when her original plan fell through.
But it seems that the fact that Alina is the first person of diminutive stature in the franchise has made their relationship unique. Caleb Greenwood and Alina Kozhevnikova were not invited since their narrative had been cut from the show by TLC due to Alina’s racist social media remarks.
How Caleb and Aliana First Met
After talking on the internet for over a decade, Caleb and Alina finally met in person in Turkey this fall. The two made online contact for the first time when they were 15 years old but then lost touch for the next 13 years.
Then, miraculously, they found each other on a Tinder app and their affections for one another were rekindled. While it’s undeniable that they developed a strong bond and shared experiences throughout the journey, the end of the trip also brought about a distinct lack of chemistry.
Before Alina returned to her home in Russia and he returned to his home in Arizona, she wanted to know where their relationship stood. Caleb insisted that he just needed some more time, but Alina wasn’t buying it anymore.
“I feel like I’ve been really patient with Caleb so far,” she said to the cameras. “This phrase, “I need more time, not too quickly,” has always been spoken to me with respect. This excuse, however, is no longer valid.”
In spite of the fact that they were only going to be in Turkey for two more days, Caleb still couldn’t bring himself to tell Alina that he was dating her. Caleb expressed displeasure at being pressed on the issue of exclusivity.

Caleb Greenwood and Alina Kozhevnikova were not invited since their narrative had been cut from the show by TLC due to Alina’s racist social media remarks.
After missing the big announcement, Caleb updated his social media followers on his travels and disclosed that he’s been spending time with yet another famous franchise pair.
Essentially, he didn’t realize how much attention Alina’s version of dwarfism would take and felt the need, to be honest about the fact that he didn’t feel up to the challenge. That was a moment of maturity for Caleb, and grown-up behavior is uncommon in the series.
