90 Day Fiance has become a cult sensation.
The reality show follows Americans while their foreign lovers move to the US to be with them. The couples then have 90 days to get married before their K-1 visa expires and they have to go home.
Seriously, it’s immersive television.
The show became so popular that it produced several spin-offs.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days follows the travels of the Americans before their important others come to America.
Season three of the popular reality show follows seven Americans who have fallen in love with the internet. They will all travel to their partner hoping to get engaged.
Sounds like a solid plan.
Who are the couples?
The first couple is Avery and Omar. When she was 18, Avery converted from Christianity to Islam. She met Omar through a Muslim dating site. Twenty-four-year-old Omar lives in Syria. The couple is already engaged via the internet and now they meet for the first time in a city near Lebanon.
The following are Caesar and Maria. There is always at least one pair like these two at 90 Day Fiance. Caeser is a 46-year-old nail technician and Maria is a 28-year-old beauty from Ukraine. They have been dating for five years and in that time Caesar spent more than $ 40,000 on Maria. He plans to make a proposal to his beloved when he arrives in Ukraine.
The next couple is Rebecca and Zied. Forty-seven year old Rebecca is still looking for love after three marriages. She met 26-year-old Zied online. But this is not Rebecca’s first relaunch to international love. She was previously married to a man from Morocco, whom she also brought to America with a visa for her husband. Despite the failure of that marriage, Rebecca is ready to travel to Tunisia to meet Zied.
Another couple that we will see this season are Benjamin and Akinyi. After getting divorced, Benjamin found it hard to meet women, so he started searching online. Now he is traveling to Kenya to ask Akinyi’s family if he can marry her. Benjamin will be the first white person to visit the village of Akinyi.
We will also follow Timothy and Jeniffer. Timothy plans to travel to Colombia to meet Jeniffer for the first time. While there, he hopes to prove to Jeniffer that he will be a worthy husband and stepfather for her 18-month-old daughter.
Who is returning?
Darcey Silva has been before 90 days before, but this time she does not appear in the show with Jesse Meester. Instead she goes out with Tom from the UK. The two met online four years ago, but never made things official. Now she meets Tom for the first time in the UK.
Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi also return to the show from season two. Last season, when Deem came to Nigeria to meet Ilesanmi, things didn’t go very smoothly. Now she returns to Africa to tell Ilesanmi that if he doesn’t change, she won’t allow him to come to the US with her.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Season Three will premiere on Sunday at 8 p.m. on TLC.
