The upcoming, drama-filled fourth season of Shahs of Sunset features plenty of excitement: a proposal, a wedding, a lie detector test and Reza cuddling with an actual tiger. This season will also introduce a new cast member, grad student Asifa Mirza. Shahs is back March 2 but before you're formally introduced to Asifa, here are 5 things you should know.

She's no Martha Stewart.
Bobby recently posted a photo of Asifa's attempt at a banana pancake and wrote, "This is why we are on a first name basis at every restaurant in a 10 mile radius." In fairness, even the Top Chef judges can acknowledge presentation isn't everything.
She shares a friend with Kim Kardashian.
"Dinner with my long lost soul sister," Asika captioned a photo of herself and Kardashian bestie Robin Antin. Robin is also sister of Bravoleb Jonathan Antin, who starred in the series Blow Out.
She takes fitness very seriously
Maybe it's to counter balance all that restaurant food, but Asifa seems to be quite the gym enthusiast. She regularly posts photos of her extensive workout wardrobe and recently posted about hitting the gym before a night out, "planning on being in a bikini everyday this summer."
She's already got an ally on the show.
We'll have to wait for the season premiere to learn more about Asifa's relationship with castmate GG, but the two seem to be old friends. Asifa has shared pics of hanging out with GG, double-dating with their guys, and recently captioned this photo of them together, "10 years later..."
