'90 Days Fiancé': TLC teases Season Six with new trailer
The new trailer of the upcoming season six of the highly emotion-ridden '90 Days Fiancé' offers a sneak peek into the twists and surprises of the TLC show.
The show that started it all - '90 Day Fiancé'- returns for its sixth season on TLC and is no short of drama. Slated for October 21, the show puts long-distance relationships to the test by giving the couples involved a chance to come closer than ever before.
For the first-timers to the show, the series focuses on six couples. What sets them apart is that they are all on long-distance relationships. Separated by land and sea, the couples must embark on a long and arduous journey to the country to bring their fiancés stateside and tie the knot - all in just 90 days. If they fail, they don't just have to send their significant others back to their home countries, but also risk losing the love of their life forever.
Trailing the journeys of the six couples, the men and women profiled in this series share the complexities of international romances. The show's description elaborates that with a visa that allows foreign fiancés of American citizens to travel to the U.S., the couples get to experience life in the States with their prospective mates for the first time.
Apart from overcoming the cultural and language barriers, they must also put up with each other's families, homes and lifestyles. The couples must marry before the visas expire in 90 days, or else the visitors have to immediately return to their countries. With the clock ticking, these couples discover if their 'happily ever after' is meant to be.
The series comes close on the heels of spinoff 'Before The 90 Days', which is completing its second season run on October 14. The current season of 'Before The 90 Days' is pacing to be the highest-ranking season in franchise history and is currently making TLC the #1 network for women on Sunday nights. Here's a little insight into each couple and what they bring to the show:
Kalani, 29 (Orange County, CA) and Asuelu, 23 (Samoa)
Kalani was on vacation in Samoa when she met Asuelu, who was working at the resort she was staying in. Kalani, raised Mormon and always taught to save herself before marriage, lost her virginity to Asuelu and got pregnant with his baby. Having to break this news to her family didn’t go down well for Asuelu either, especially with Kalani's father who doesn’t trust him. Kalani’s sister also has an issue with him as Kalani hasn’t told her the full truth about their relationship. Now with a five-month-old and only 90 days to impress her family, Kalani and Asuelu must work to overcome the obstacles ahead of them.
Eric, 40 (Baraboo, Wisconsin) and Leida, 29 (Indonesia)
Divorced with three daughters, Eric met Leida after posting a personal ad on an international website. The two immediately clicked and spent much of their time video chatting until Eric was able to travel to meet Leida in Indonesia, who lives with her parents in a very wealthy and high-class neighborhood. After just two days, Eric proposed to Leida and now they are gearing up for her to move to the U.S. where Eric hopes that Leida and her son will help create a happy blended family along with his kids. But the age difference between them has Eric’s children concerned about Leida’s true intentions. In addition, Eric is fully aware that the life of luxury Leida is used to might make it challenging for her to adapt to his middle-class lifestyle.
Jonathan, 32 (Lumberton, North Carolina) and Fernanda, 19 (Mexico)
Jonathan and Fernanda met at a club in Mexico, leading Jonathan to extend his trip for an extra three days. He hadn’t expected to meet someone during his trip, so he shocked everyone, including himself, when he proposed after just three months. Jonathan has made the most of his bachelor lifestyle and must prepare for the big adjustment of sharing his life with someone else. Fernanda jokes that Jonathan is robbing her of her youth by tying her down at such a young age, but Jonathan sometimes wonders if their 12-year age difference could be the demise of their relationship.
Ashley, 31 (Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) and Jay, 20 (Jamaica)
Ashley met Jay when she went to Jamaica for her friend’s wedding. While out with her girlfriends the two met at a club. Ashley didn’t expect to talk to him again, but Jay tracked her down on social media. Six months later, Ashley went back to visit, and after spending just eight days together, Jay proposed. Ashley has had two failed engagements, so she’s hoping the third time is a charm, but with Jay being so young and having had a wild lifestyle, she’s hoping he can be serious about their relationship so that she’ll finally be able to stop searching for long-lasting love.
Colt, 33 (Las Vegas, Nevada) and Larissa, 31 (Brazil)
Colt wasn’t having any luck with American women, so he decided to look elsewhere and met Brazilian bombshell Larissa via social media. Colt and Larissa both traveled to meet up in Mexico, and Colt proposed after just five days. Colt is a mama’s boy and is used to his mom taking care of him and everything he needs, so they both must make adjustments to fit Larissa into their everyday life. Colt worries that Larissa has the wrong impression of what it means to be American after all of her high-priced demands, and Colt’s family worries that Larissa is just using Colt for a ticket into the U.S.
Steven, 20 (Bowie, Maryland) and Olga, 20 (Russia)
When Steven and Olga met on the beach, Olga was only in the U.S. for the summer and the two of them were just having fun. After just a month and a half, Olga became pregnant throwing them off the loop and changing what they thought would be just a summer romance. Once Olga arrived back home in Russia, the two discussed their plans moving forward and decided to get engaged and bring Olga to the U.S. in order to the raise the baby there. Steven’s father passed away when Steven was just seven, so he is determined to have a presence in his son’s life, and the young couple believes that obtaining a K-1 VISA is what they must do to be together.
