And although the teen is now elated that her surgery was a total success, the procedure wasn’t without its complications. In the trailer for Season 5, a doctor shares the challenges of performing the gender confirmation surgery on Jazz.
“She’s the most difficult case that I’ve encountered,” he is heard saying. “She’ll be experimental.” Jazz confirmed that there was a hiccup during her surgery, but is optimistic that it was all “part of the journey.”
As she recalled to Nightline, “There was just an unfortunate event and setback where things did come apart, and there was a complication. I had to come back in for another procedure … The good thing though is that it was only cosmetic and external so it wasn’t too dramatic.”
And now that she’s happier than ever in her body, she’s delving into other normal teen things. Like prom, dating, and finding a boyfriend.
Who’s Jazz’s new boyfriend?
“I feel like I’ve been ready to fall in love,” says Jazz in the trailer for the upcoming season. With all of the impressive accomplishments she’s tallied in her 18 years, it sounds like she’s ready to let loose and meet her match.
And it seems like she’s found it in Amir, the boyfriend we’ll all get to meet when Season 5 goes on air. “There’s a boy in the picture now,” she teases. “Amir just gets me, and I get him.”
Although she’s pretty mum about him on social media, which is mainly reserved for family photos and the occasional selfie, she did reveal that the two have locked lips quite a bunch during Jazz’s senior year. “I’ve kissed him a lot,” she revealed in the trailer.
We can’t wait to catch up on everything Jazz has been up to in the past few months when I Am Jazz returns to TLC on January 1st at 10 p.m.
