The sophomore season premieres June 10th on discovery+, the definitive, nonfiction, real-life subscription streaming service.

90 DAY FIANCE: LOVE IN PARADISE will follow three new and two returning couples with so much at stake, they risk more than just a broken heart by putting their relationships with family and friends on the line. This season includes not only brand new sultry locations but also two LGBTQ+ couples– a first for the 90 Day franchise. Tensions rise and secrets unfold as these couples attempt to join their vastly different lifestyles together and they realize that their compatibility during a short-lived vacation romance may not be suitable for a lasting connection. Will these twosomes and threesomes reconcile their differences, or start to question if their time together was in fact, a mirage?

Meet this season’s couples:

Daniele (Yonkers, New York) & Yohan (Dominican Republic)

Five months ago, Daniele booked a trip to the Dominican Republic, where she met Yohan, a 6’7″ gorgeous local who was working as a fitness instructor at the hotel. Their eyes locked from across the lobby, and it was love at first sight. Six weeks later, Yohan proposed and now, Daniele is heading back to the Dominican Republic to marry him, and hopefully, conceive a baby. However, Daniele is 42 years old, ten years older than Yohan, and worries she won’t be able to conceive a child at this stage of her life. Will Yohan, who desperately wants to become a father, stay in the relationship if she can’t conceive?

Valentine (Los Angeles, CA) & Carlos (Colombia)

Despite having an active dating life in Los Angeles, VaLentine has never found ‘the one,’ but a random connection on social media led him to meeting Carlos, a hunky Colombian man with a mane of hair that drives VaLentine wild. The two fell in love over video chat but the pandemic kept them apart. Now, almost two years later, VaLentine heads to Colombia to meet Carlos and, if all goes well, he’ll propose. The sexual chemistry is palpable, but the bliss soon fizzles as they discover several major incompatibilities. Will the couple be able to find a compromise?

Frankie (Nashville, TN), Abby (Mexico) and Gaby (Mexico)

Five months ago, Frankie met bi-sexual couple Abby and Gaby, who have been in a relationship for ten years, while on vacation in Mexico. They had an unexpected threesome and spent five sexy days together. Once he was back in the US, Frankie continued his relationship with Abby over video chat and the two fell in love. Now, Frankie plans to return to Mexico, propose to Abby, and then start the K-1 visa process. But there’s just one problem – Gaby has no idea. Will the couples be able to work things out or will both the friendship and romance fall apart?

Aryanna (Quincy, IL) & Sherlon (Jamaica)

Last season ended with Aryanna giving birth in America to her son Odin without Sherlon present. After a trip to Jamaica where Aryanna attempted to convince Sherlon to move to America and raise their child together, she is taking one last flight out to Jamaica in hopes that Sherlon has a change of heart after meeting their son. Amongst other problems, now there’s a question as to whether or not Sherlon has been faithful. Is Sherlon ready to be a father and potential partner to Aryanna or, is his easy-going, tourist-pleasing fun-filled lifestyle still too hard to give up?

Amber (Seminole, FL) & Daniel (Costa Rica)

After meeting while Amber was on vacation in Costa Rica four years ago, a lot has changed for Amber and Daniel. They are now married and living in a house in Florida that Amber owns, along with her sister Ashley. But things are also very much the same – Amber is still complaining about money, still complaining about Daniel’s contribution to their relationship, and still wondering if building a life with someone from another country was the best decision. With their days in paradise behind them, can these newlyweds make their relationship last in the real world?

TLC’S “90 DAY FIANCÉ” RETURNS WITH SEVEN STANDOUT COUPLES

— New Season Premieres Sunday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – The original 90 Day series that started it all and sparked obsessive conversation around the world is back! Seven couples have 90 days to figure out whether their love can go the distance when the ninth season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ premieres on TLC and discovery+ Sunday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT. Last year, 90 DAY FIANCÉ was the #1 unscripted show with all key adult and women demos, and since the show’s original debut in 2014, 4.3 billion hours of 90 Day content have been consumed. The show has truly taken the globe by storm, having filmed in 46 countries, aired in 181 territories and even been broadcast in 39 different languages.

Following K-1 visa rules, the couples will have 90 days to wed before the visa expires and their fiancé is sent back to their home country. The pressure is on and with travel guidelines more challenging than ever, there’s even more at stake with these international love stories. This season, couples aren’t just navigating unique lifestyle and cultural changes when arriving in America – many of them must also adjust to parenthood and nontraditional family lifestyles. And while absence makes the heart grow fonder, personalities and temperaments have changed and not always for the best… will these seven couples make it to the altar?

Meet this season’s couples:

Emily, 29 (Salina, KS) and Kobe, 34 (Cameroon)

Emily left her small town for the bustling city of Xi’an, China to teach English. While out clubbing one night, she met Kobe and the connection was instant. Within two weeks, their one-night stand turned into an engagement, and a pregnancy followed soon after. When Emily returned to Kansas, they both assumed Kobe’s visa would be quickly approved, but the pandemic delayed him by almost two years. During that time, Emily gave birth to their son and has been raising and supporting him on her own, while Kobe has not even had the chance to meet him yet. The pair is ready to reunite and become a family, but will their relationship be the same given all the physical, geographical and familial changes since that fateful night out in China?

Ari, 30 (Princeton, NJ) and Bini, 31 (Ethiopia)

Viewers first met Ari and Bini on 90 DAY FIANCÉ: THE OTHER WAY, and after several seasons of relationship hurdles, the couple is giving it one last try in the United States. The pair first met crossing the street in Ethiopia and the rest is history: Ari found out she was pregnant and moved to Ethiopia to be with Bini. But when their son, Avi, needed surgery, Ari moved back to the United States, and the distance, amplified by Bini’s poor communication skills, strained their relationship. In spite of it all, Ari and Bini plan to wed, but will religion, family introductions and Bini’s past get in the way?

Kara, 29 (Charlottesville, VA) and Guillermo, 23 (Venezuela)

Guillermo, a Venezuelan living in the Dominican Republic, caught Kara’s eye while she was on a work trip there. The two kept in touch after she returned home, not thinking it was anything serious, but that all changed when Kara’s job asked her to relocate to the Dominican Republic. Things escalated from there – Kara moved in with Guillermo upon her arrival, and an engagement quickly followed, raising eyebrows amongst Kara’s skeptical family and friends. Due to the pandemic, Kara moved back home, and the two have been separated for nine months. With his visa approved, Guillermo is now set to move to Charlottesville, but will their whirlwind romance be able to survive Kara’s partying habits and Guillermo’s insecurities?

Bilal, 42 (Kansas City, MO) and Shaeeda, 37 (Trinidad and Tobago)

The sparks flew instantly when Bilal and Shaeeda finally met in person after connecting online months before: in fact, Bilal proposed after spending just one week together! Their lives couldn’t be more different, as Bilal is a divorced father of two while Shaeeda still lives at home with her parents. Shaeeda is ready to start a family of her own with Bilal, but he isn’t sure he wants any more children. On top of that, Bilal wants Shaeeda to sign a prenup, causing a further rift between the two. Will the pressures of moving to the United States, taking care of a family, and fostering a healthy relationship prevent them from walking down the aisle?

Jibri, 28 (Rapid City, SD) and Miona, 23 (Serbia)

It was a picture-perfect moment: Jibri noticed Miona in the audience of his band’s show in North Serbia. They’ve been together ever since, and Jibri proposed during one of their trips around the world. Miona can’t wait to move to the United States and envisions a lavish life in Los Angeles, but Jibri recently moved back to his family’s home in South Dakota. Will Miona be able to accept a life with Jibiri in a small town, or will the strains of living with his family, combined with her jealousy, prove to be too much?

Yvette, 48 (Albuquerque, NM) and Mohamed, 25 (Egypt)

Despite a 23-year age gap, Mohamed slid into Yvette’s DMs after noticing their shared love of fitness. The flirtation became an engagement when Yvette traveled to Egypt to meet Mohamed in person. At home, Yvette has a twelve-year-old son with special needs, meaning Mohamed is going to be closer in age to his future stepson than to his wife if they say “I do.” On top of that, the culture norms in the States are different from what Mohamed is used to, and he’s not sure he’s comfortable with the independent and carefree way Yvette lives her life. Will the realities of a life together be too much for this couple’s relationship to survive?

Patrick, 31 (Austin, TX) and Thaís, 25 (Brazil)

When Patrick traveled to Brazil to reconnect with his father’s side of the family, he decided to look for a Portuguese teacher on dating apps. Thaís swiped right and was more than happy to help him out. Patrick courted Thaís over several trips to Brazil, winning her heart, showering her with lavish gifts and eventually proposing. Despite never having been to the United States, Thaís is excited to start a new life with Patrick, but will he be able to give her the extravagant life she’s used to in Brazil? And will the deep emotional wounds Patrick sustained from his first divorce cause him to think twice about his pending nuptials?

Seven Couples Hope for Long Lasting Love on a New Season of TLC’s “90 Day Fiance”





Seven Couples Hope for Long Lasting Love on a New Season of TLC’s “90 Day Fiance”
The eighth season of the original “90 Day” series that started it all premieres Sunday, December 6 at 8:00/7:00c on TLC.
[via press release from TLC]
SEVEN COUPLES HOPE FOR LONG LASTING LOVE ON A NEW SEASON OF TLC’S “90 DAY FIANCÉ”

New Season Premieres Sunday, December 6 at 8PM ET/PT

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Four new and three returning couples from the 90 Day franchise are ready to put it all on the line for what they believe to be true love in a brand-new season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ. The eighth season of the original 90 Day series that started it all premieres Sunday, December 6 at 8PM ET/PT on TLC. These couples have overcome many obstacles to get approved for the K-1 Visa and bring their spouses-to-be stateside, but the hard part is far from over. They will each have 90 days from the moment their significant other lands on U.S. soil to say “I do,” or else the foreigners will have to head back to their home countries.

The couples followed this season include:

Brandon, 27 (Dinwiddie, VA) and Julia, 26 (Russia)

Brandon was first introduced to Julia when his friend saw her go-go dancing in a club and decided to video chat Brandon so the two could meet virtually. Despite their distance and very different lifestyles, Brandon working and living on his parents’ farm and Julia, a city girl working as a go-go dancer, the pair hit it off instantly, and Brandon was smitten. After only five months and one meeting in person, they met up for a second time in Iceland and Brandon proposed. Now they are getting ready for Julia to move to the U.S., but after all of the money he has spent on the relationship so far, the couple will need to live with his parents for a little while so that they can save up and eventually find a place of their own. Brandon’s parents are happy that he’s finally met someone but they hope that Julia will be okay with their conservative rules and be open to pitching in to help out on the farm.

Mike, 35 (Sequim, WA) and Natalie, 35 (Ukraine)

Last season we met Mike and Natalie after they were introduced by mutual friends. They fell in love, but we also watched them deal with everything from trust issues, major differences and uncertainty about their own feelings. Despite everything, their love for each other encouraged them to apply for the K-1 Visa and Mike went to the Ukraine while they waited for it to process. This time around things are moving quickly as Natalie finds out that she must move to the U.S. within 20 days of receiving her visa. With how they left things last time, Mike is taken aback that everything is moving so fast and wonders if they’ll be able to sort out all of their issues with only 90 days to commit to marriage.

Rebecca, 49 (Woodstock, GA) and Zied, 27 (Tunisia)

Last time we caught up with Rebecca and Zied in BEFORE THE 90 DAYS, they became engaged and were starting the K-1 Visa process. Now, Rebecca is anxiously awaiting the final step in the K-1 Visa process – Zied’s interview. If everything goes as planned, Zied will be on his way to the U.S. Rebecca has gotten a new job and is working overtime to support Zied financially when he arrives. Like last time, Zied’s conservative religious beliefs create conflict in their relationship, causing Rebecca to be suspicious that she is being scammed again. Rebecca’s daughter Tiffany and her boyfriend Micah worry that Rebecca is making the same mistake again and that this relationship, like her last marriage with a foreigner, will not work out.

Jovi, 29 (New Orleans, LA) and Yara, 25 (Ukraine)

While traveling solo around the world, Jovi decided to download a travel app to meet new people. When he matched with Yara, he wasn’t expecting anything more than a hook-up, but they instantly had a connection and continued to travel together. Six months into their relationship, Yara found out she was pregnant, Jovi proposed and they filed for the K-1 Visa. Sadly, Yara had a miscarriage, but the whole experience strengthened their feelings and commitment. Now Yara is getting ready to move stateside, but Jovi’s mother wonders if she’ll be able to fit in with his wild outdoor lifestyle and his friends wonder if he’s serious about giving up the bachelor life.

Stephanie, 52 (Grand Rapids, MI) and Ryan, 27 (Belize)

Stephanie has devoted so much of her life to her two spa businesses that she’s never been in a serious relationship. During a vacation in Belize, Stephanie met Ryan on the beach and the two sparked up a conversation. After so many years of living the single life, Stephanie feels that Ryan is the one and hopes to finally settle down with him. Stephanie spoils Ryan with gifts and supports him and his family with their rent, however, they bicker over his flirtatious tendencies but Ryan believes he’s not doing anything wrong while Stephanie becomes jealous. She has hopes that Ryan will mature when he arrives in the U.S. but her friends and family worry that he is only in it for the opportunities and support Stephanie provides him.

Andrew, 32 (Roseville, CA) and Amira, 28 (France)

Andrew created an online dating profile when he decided that he was ready to settle down and start a family. He heard from many women and almost overlooked Amira’s brief message but reached out to her. They both felt an instant connection and made plans to meet for a romantic week in Las Vegas, where Andrew proposed. Afterwards, they filed for the K-1 Visa and got approved, but find that they must go to great lengths getting Amira into the U.S. during Covid-19 before their visa expires.

Tarik, 46 (Virginia Beach, VA) and Hazel, 28 (Philippines)

When we last caught up Tarik and Hazel on BEFORE THE 90 DAYS, Tarik had traveled to meet Hazel in person and did everything he could to try and fit into her culture. We saw them get engaged with a romantic proposal and saw Tarik head back to the U.S. Now, Hazel is moving to begin her 90 days with plans to bring her eight-year-old son Harry to America as soon as she can. After revealing that she is bisexual, Hazel now plans to find an American girlfriend to add to she and Tarik’s relationship. However, we find out a bit about Tarik and Hazel’s past that complicates this idea.

90 DAY FIANCÉ will premiere following season two of the franchise expander THE OTHER WAY, which is currently averaging a 2.32 P25-54 rating, 3.27 W25-54 rating, and 3.8M P2+ viewers, up double-digits from its freshman season.
