WORLDS APART, BOUND BY LOVE ON TLC'S "90 DAY FIANCÉ"
Season three premieres Sunday, October 11 at 10/9c
(Los Angeles, CA) - It's often said that opposites attract, and the couples on TLC's hit show 90 DAY FIANCÉ are no exception. This season features six engaged couples with seemingly outrageous love stories, including one pair with a 39-year age difference, a young Mormon man engaged to a former go-go dancer and a suave Jamaican man, who has his fiancée's family questioning his motives.
90 DAY FIANCÉ, returns Sunday, October 11 at 10/9c, and will follow six new couples who take a chance on love and bring their potential spouses-to-be stateside. Using a special K-1 visa, the couples are required to get married at the end of only 90 days - or else be forced to return to their home countries. The season will include ten one-hour episodes. In addition, TLC will air a 'Where Are They Now' special sharing an update on the most talked about couples featured in the previous season, airing a week prior on Sunday, October 4 at 10/9c.
The series will follow these couples during their journeys:
Fernando (Miami, Florida) and Carolina (from Colombia)
Fernando, 39, and Carolina, 22, met at a nightclub in Colombia while both on dates with their now-exes. Fernando has cheated in his past relationships, and Carolina has trouble trusting him. Fernando expects Carolina to leave her Colombian roots behind and become fully Americanized.
Josh (Rexburg, Idaho) and Aleksandra (from Russia)
Josh, 22, and Aleksandra, 21, met in the Czech Republic while Josh was there on a Mormon mission trip and Aleksandra was there for school. Josh was inspired to teach Aleksandra about his faith, and the two soon grew close. Aleksandra, a former go-go dancer and self-described party girl, converted to the Mormon faith in order to be with Josh. Despite this, Josh's family still does not approve of Aleksandra's past and view her as an outsider.
Kyle (New Orleans, Louisiana) and Noon (from Thailand)
Kyle, 28, and Noon, 25, met through social media when Kyle was looking for a local to show him around Thailand. Kyle is a bartender in the infamous New Orleans party scene, and Noon worries he might be tempted by the women he interacts with on a nightly basis.
Loren (New York, New York) and Alexei (from Israel)
Loren, 27, and Alexei, 27, met in Israel while she was on a Birthright trip, where Alexei served as the group's medic. The two have never spent more than 15 days together at a time, much less lived together, yet they are about to move in with Loren's parents' three-bedroom condo, in order to save money. Loren fears that Alexei will get homesick and will want to return to Israel.
Mark (Baltimore, Maryland) and Nikki (from the Philippines)
Mark, 58, and Nikki, 19, met through an online dating site. Mark's four children from his previous marriage are all older than Nikki, and are concerned that she is young enough to be his granddaughter. Nikki thinks she might want children in the future, but Mark is firm in that he does not want to be a father again.
Melanie (Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania) and Devar (from Jamaica)
Melanie, 33, and Devar, 28, met while Melanie was on vacation in Jamaica at a beach resort where Devar worked as a lifeguard. Devar will be leaving his country for the first time ever to live with Melanie and her eleven year-old son in a very conservative town. Melanie's family is concerned about Devar's true intentions, while Melanie worries Devar will return home since his family has always been financially supported by him.
