Born on December 16, 1998 in Claremont, New Hampshire, USA, Evelyn Cormier is a television personality, best known as one of the cast members of the television series “90 Day Fiance” during its fifth season. She later returned to television as a contestant on the 14th season of “American Idol”.
Evelyn Cormier’s net worth
As of the beginning of 2020, Evelyn Cormier’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million earned through success in the entertainment industry. Aside from her television appearances, she is also pursuing a professional singing career, hoping to make it big one day by signing with a major record label.
What a strange and crazy time we live in! Does anyone else feel it’s unreal – like a movie or a book plot?! It is…
The beginning of early life and music
Evelyn grew up in a strict religious Christian family in the small town of Claremont. At a young age, she developed an interest in music and wanted to make it big as a singer. She initially took violin lessons with encouragement from her parents, but later became disinterested in the instrument, preferring to develop her voice. She listened to music a lot and even started writing songs before her teenage years.
Her father also helped develop her voice, and after a few years she formed a band, joined by several adult musicians, the youngest of the group.
She then began performing locally at various gigs in her hometown and nearby areas. While continuing her education, she interned at the Lake Sunapee Baptist Church, where she served as a worship leader for a time. The experience helped develop her confidence and her ability to perform live with a band in front of an audience.
90 Day Fiancé
In 2017, Cormier got some attention when she became one of the stars of the TLC reality show “90 Day Fiancé”. The documentary series features American citizens who begin relationships and eventually become engaged to foreigners.
Their foreign fiancées then apply for the K-1 visa, which gives them a time limit to get married within 90 days before the visa expires. This sanction was created by the US government to help the couple decide if the marriage is worth it while they are in the US together. The show focuses on that 90-day clause, documenting the couple’s life before meeting, their next meeting, and the events that take place before the visa time is up.
The couples are often shown struggling to adjust to each other’s lifestyles, and the challenge of moving from their home countries to the US.
The show has been very successful, leading to several spin-offs such as “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After” and “90 Day Fiance: The Other Way”. As seen on the show, Evelyn met David through Facebook after discovering her band’s page, leading the two to become friends. They quickly bonded online as they came from similar backgrounds, with religious Christian families.
Success and controversy within 90 days fiancée
Cormier’s story like many other stories in “90 Day Fiancé” piqued the interest of many viewers, as this type of relationship is uncommon in the US in terms of documentation.
During their season, the show highlighted the fact that they were both virgins and how they promised each other that they wouldn’t have sex until they were married. David was very shy when it came to talking about the matter on camera. He also didn’t like the fact that he would make a huge adjustment by moving to a small town.
The show also attracted a lot of attention controversy, mainly due to the fact that Evelyn was only 18 years old and her fiancé was nine years older than her. Many viewers disagreed with her decision to get married so early in life, while others thought he was just using her to get a free US ticket. Despite all the criticism, the two are married and apparently living happily in Claremont.
“90 Day Fiancé” has been accused of many things, including fabricating their storyline for the sake of drama, which is a common problem with (alleged) reality TV shows. Fans have seen photos of the couple together even before the events of “90 Day Fiancé,” indicating that they had already met and were comfortable even before filming.
Wanting to get away from reality television and the “90 Day Fiancé” label the show placed on her, Evelyn began to refocus on her music career.
In the 14th season of “American Idol”, she auditioned to be part of the competition and was successful, becoming one of the early favourites of the year. She made it to the top 14 in the competition and had a lot of potential but was just that finally cut and did not make the top 10.
The show has been airing since 2002 and was created by Simon Cowell, taking the format from the British “Pop Idol”. The first run in the US was very successful, with judges such as Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell. It helped create countless stars such as Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Jennifer Hudson, and Carrie Underwood.
During the height of its popularity, it featured several high-profile music acts. The current iteration features Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry – Ryan Seacrest has been the host of the show since its inception.
Evelyn married David Zermeno in 2017 and they live in Claremont, New Hampshire. They have no children and have not expressed a desire to have one as she is still very young and has many years ahead of her to plan for a family. She plans to pursue a career as a music artist and has released songs independent, hoping for her breakthrough. Except music, she
loves to travel and has been to various places in the world including her husband’s hometown in Spain.
