Leslie Fhima Bio, Children, Height, Age, Golden Bachelor

Meet Leslie Fhima, one of the three contestants of Golden Bachelor, who according to Reality Steve will have a hometown date with the leading man Gerry Turner. Since the announcement, viewers have been looking to learn more about her personal and professional life.

Here are the details about her children, ex-husband, age, and her family.

Leslie Fhima On The Golden Bachelor

The Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner is ready to date 22 women on the show. These women have worked in finance, real estate, cheerleading, education, and even competitive aerobics. They come from both big cities (New York, NY) and tiny communities (Estill Springs, TN), and their musical preferences range from classic rock to Harry Styles. (One of them even attended a concert by the Beatles.) And they are all at least 60 years of age.

Yes, the females fighting for leading guy Gerry Turner’s affection aren’t all 23-year-olds actually competing for Instagram sponsorships. Golden, as in golden years. (Are we really so jaded? In reality, they might be the moms of those women. Gerry is 71 years old, and all of his suitors (suitees?) are between the ages of 60 and 75. Will widowed, two-times-grandfather Turner discovers his second true love on screen?

As always we relied on our spoiler king Reality Steve to give four names of who will see the hometown date with the Golden Bachelor’s leading man. However, Reality Steve revealed that filming of the show began on August 3 and hometowns kicked off three weeks later.

Reality Steve mentioned that only one month would be spent filming, thus this timeline works out wonderfully. For Gerry’s season, there were just three home dates.

According to Leslie Fhima hailed from Minnesota. Over the years, Minnesota has had a few contestants including Becca Kufrin, Michelle Young, and John Buresh.

“Leslie may best be known as a former professional figure skater, but this woman has way more going on than what meets the eye! Outside of her love for figure skating and dancing, Leslie is now a personal trainer and is passionate about helping others live their best lives. She has run 10 marathons and is looking for her running buddy for life. When she isn’t working at the gym, Leslie is an incredible mom to her three kids and “glama” to her three grandkids. She also loves spending time with her mini Aussiedoodle, Billie. Leslie is looking for a real man who will enhance her life, and she’s ready to put it all on the line to pursue love.”

Does Leslie Fhima Have Children?

Leslie Fhima is a mother of three children named Eli Fhima, Chloe Fhima, and Zack Chazin.

“She’s aging backward,” said her son, Eli said of him.

“Proud of this woman. At 64 years old, she has so much life in her and so much love to give. @leslie_fhima you deserve the world and now it’s your time to go and get it. Love you momma #teamleslie #thegoldenbachelor,” her son Zack wrote on his Facebook.

Leslie was previously married to Minnesota mega chef David Fhima. They got divorced when Eli was only 5 years old. Eli is now 28 years old.

Eli has followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the restaurant business as he was born into the restaurant business, literally.  “Literally,” he says. “Mpls. Café opened the day I was born.” He served as both maître d’ and director of operations at Fhima’s MPLS.

Eli also reflected on the pain of his dad going through bankruptcy. “My life never changed with that,” he says of the very public bankruptcy, “He protected all of us (he has three sisters).”

“Eli was raised under my kitchen skirt from the time he was born,”Eli’s father David shared, “and as a product of a divorce, it meant that I had custody half of the time, and given how precious those times were I never wanted to have a babysitter so that meant he was at the restaurant when he was not in school, doing homework, hanging out and mostly eating.”

Eli, according to his LinkedIn, is currently serving in the role of Director of Operations at Fhimas Minneapolis. He was part of a hip-hop trio called Kids Like Us, which released an album called, When Things Get Weird, in May 2014.

Leslie’s daughter Chloe is based in Miami-Fort Lauderdale. Currently, 32 years old, she is on Twitter, IG, and Facebook.

Her other son Zack Chazin works as a Global Touring at Live Nation Concerts. He was a Talent Buyer/Promoter & Artist Management at Chazin Entertainment. Moreover, he is a Partner/Director/Talent Buyer at Snowta Fest.

He is the father to two children Jackson Chazin and Sofia Chazin. Her two grandchildren who make her own heart beat faster.”

“They are the loves of my life,” Leslie said. “I’m all about creating memories and traditions for them. I bring a lot to their lives and they make my every day happier.” She sees them three times a week and FaceTimes them on days she doesn’t pick them up from school or take them on an outing.

After graduating from high school, Fhima traveled the world with the Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice while spending a large portion of her own youth on skates. “I taught my grandson to snowboard, the three of us go sledding,” she said. “We swim together in the summer, we have dance parties. When my younger son [the grandkids’ uncle] ran Grandma’s Marathon, we went up to cheer and run the last mile with him.”

“When I was raising my own children, I was a single mother, juggling everything. Now I have the space in my life to give my grandchildren real quality time that I didn’t always get to do with my kids,” she said. “My grandkids are my do-over.”

As for her ex-husband, David worked as a chef at Fhima’s Minneapolis in 2018 and founded Faces Minneapolis LLC and Fhimas Minneapolis. He also worked as a Timberwolves and Lynx at Faces Mpls LLC since August 2016. David went to ORT STRASBOURG and the University of Geneva (Mechanical Engineering).

David was born in Casablanca as one of 17 children. He grew up and went to schools all over the world; from Paris to London to Geneva to Strasbourg. He came to the US in 1982 and opened his first restaurant in Twin Cities in 1993 called Minneapolis Cafe.
