In her reply, Frane said no one likes change, especially when it has to do with something they have done for a long time. Hence, she uses love and encouragement to get Chapman to live a healthy lifestyle.

Frane revealed she told Chapman that she wants him around for at least the next twenty years and repeatedly tells him that. She further explained that when people are picked continuously for something, it makes them want to do the opposite.

According to her, the constant picking will fuel them further to do the opposite thing more as they do not want to be picked on all the time. Frane said her tactic is probably a reverse psychology sort of thing, as she is loving Chapman out of his cigarette-smoking habit.

During the interview with Dr. Oz, Chapman also revealed that the famous doctor gave his fiancée, Frane, an idea, making him set a date for when he will stop smoking.

The Bounty Hunter said he would never smoke another cigarette after January 1, 2021. He also revealed that Frane hid his cigarettes and all the lighters in her bid to get him to stop.

Frane is not just getting her man to quit his smoking habit, she has also helped him lose 20 pounds of weight. Chapman revealed in September while speaking to Dr. Oz that Frane put him on a new diet consisting of grass and dandelions.

Besides his weight loss and decision to quit smoking, Frane also got Chapman to stop cursing and start attending church almost every week. These turn of events are quite impressive and show the remarkable bond Frane and Chapman share.

In May, Chapman revealed he and Frane were engaged via a social media post. Their engagement came ten months after Chapman lost his wife of many years, Beth Chapman, who died in June 2019, following a battle with throat cancer.
