90 Day Fiance OG Paola Mayfield is making a return to reality TV.

Paola and her husband, Russ Mayfield, appeared during Season 1 of 90 Day Fiance back in 2014.

Since then, Paola has appeared on several spinoffs of the flagship series, including Pillow Talk, Happily Ever After?, and Self-Quarantined.

Paola took a break from reality TV to focus on her career as a professional wrestler (stage name Paola Blaze) and her work in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, Zumba instructor, and nutritionist.

But now, the Colombian-born beauty is making a reality TV comeback, and in a big way.

Paola recently took to Instagram to announce that she’ll appear in a new competitive reality TV series, The Goat, coming to Amazon Freevee in a race to be crowned the “greatest reality star of all time.”

In the post, Paola posed alongside her castmates, including a bevy of other stars from the reality TV world.

“I’m back, mis amores! Wish me luck on my first-ever competition show!” Paola wrote in the accompanying caption. “#THEGOAT only on @amazonfreevee.”

Paola received plenty of love in the comments section of the post, including from several of her fellow 90 Day Fiance castmates.

Darcey Silva of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days and Darcey & Stacey left a slew of red-heart emojis, while David Toborowsky wrote to Paola, “Best of luck.”

Tiffany Franco told Paola she was “So excited” for the brunette beauty, while Cortney Reardanz commented, “Can’t wait.”

Several other reality TV stars congratulated Paola, with Lauren Speed from Love Is Blind and Joey Sasso from Perfect Match both commenting, “Pao Pao!”

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Paola hinted at her return to the small screen. Last month, she tweeted about a “new chapter” coming to her life.

Then, as Monsters and Critics also reported, there was speculation that Paola would be joining the cast of a show currently in production. A Vevmo forum thread made the announcement online, and it looks as though their report was accurate.

Amazon Freevee shared the same photo as Paola’s on their official Instagram, along with their own announcement, seen below.

Per the video-on-demand streaming service, “A competition to be the greatest reality star of all time? Hosted by comedian #DanielTosh? Sounds goated, I’m in ? The GOAT is coming to Freevee soon.”

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way airs on Sundays at 8/7c on TLC and Discovery+.

Paola is a controlling man in a womans body. Her husband is completely under her control.. This Wrestler Wannabe chick is a turn off to watch and listen too. I guess Im not a Fan, Franco is another one. Always in a mirror and playing mind games with Ronald, who she was desperate to trap, as well as many featured in 90 day. Giving women an opportunity to make fools out of themselves, seems to be the SHOWS THEME. I ve never seen so many desperate women jump through hoops for a partner. Desperados!
