Plot Synopsis

90 DAY FIANCE: THE OTHER WAY is a one-hour reality series that flips the script of 90 DAY FIANCE by following couples where the American gives up everything to permanently move abroad to be with the person they love. Racing against a ticking clock, these six Americans face the challenges of relocating internationally, overcoming major culture shocks, winning over soon-to-be foreign in-laws, and most importantly, trying to make it down the aisle. Will uprooting their lives in the United States pay off or be the biggest mistake ever? On Monday, June 3, 2019 from 9-11pm ET/PT, TLC debuted "All in the Name of Love," the series opener, which highlights four Americans who have found love abroad. Corey must follow his love to Ecuador. Single mom Tiffany takes her son to South Africa. Grandmother Jenny prepares to be with her soulmate in India, and Paul is Brazil-bound.

This season features six couples:

Jenny (age 60; Palm Springs, California) and Sumit (age 30; India): Years ago, Sumit catfished Jenny online. After Sumit came clean to Jenny, she forgave him and traveled to India to meet in person. But the four-month trip was cut short when Sumit's parents refused to accept her. Now, Jenny is ready to move to India permanently, leaving behind her children, grandchildren and friends, while Sumit must figure out how he will marry Jenny without his large, traditional Hindu family finding out.

Laura (age 51; Eustis, Florida) and Aladin (age 29; Qatar): Laura traveled to meet Aladin after chatting on Facebook for eight months-- three days into her trip, they were engaged. Aladin is a young, handsome personal trainer, and Laura is afraid their relationship might be too good to be true. Despite her trust issues and insecurities over their 20-year age difference, Laura is preparing to leave her family, two dogs and retired lifestyle behind to move to Qatar, where she'll have to get used to a lifestyle that is much more conservative and restrictive than she's used to. As she battles her culture shock, Laura must attempt to gain the acceptance of Aladin's family while also planning a wedding in Tunisia.

Tiffany (age 27; Frederick, Maryland) and Ronald (age 29; South Africa): While on a trip to South Africa with a friend, Tiffany met and fell in love with Ronald, who quickly proposed. Tiffany said yes, but Ronald neglected to tell Tiffany about his gambling addiction and criminal record. Since Ronald came clean and entered a rehab program, Tiffany needs to decide if she will uproot her eight-year-old son Daniel to move across the world for him, in spite of her hunch that she still doesn't know everything about his dark past.

Corey (age 31; Mill A, Washington) and Evelin (age 26; Ecuador): Corey first met Evelin while on a trip to her small fishing village. After four years of dating, Corey wants to take things to the next level, which means he'll have to move to Ecuador since Evelin doesn't want to live in the U.S. Already having spent tens of thousands of dollars on Evelin and her family, Corey is fully invested in the relationship. But moving to Evelin's hometown will mean accepting a simpler way of life, including poor electricity and no running hot water.

Deavan (age 22; Salt Lake City, Utah) and Jihoon (age 29; South Korea): After hitting it off on a dating app, Jihoon flew to Utah to meet single mom Deavan in person, and they wound up getting pregnant the first night they met. Deavan hopes to get married and move to South Korea, but the language barrier and lack of proposal aren't the only things holding her back: Jihoon's parents may not bless their marriage after the dishonor of getting pregnant out of wedlock. With her three-year-old daughter from a previous relationship and a soon-to-be newborn baby in tow, Deavan must overcome all obstacles in hopes of moving with her children to South Korea to be with someone she's spent hardly any time with in person.

Paul (age 35; Louisville, Kentucky) and Karine (age 22; Brazil): Paul and Karine have a complicated history that began with Paul traveling down the Amazon river to meet Karine for the first time on 90 DAY FIANCE: BEFORE THE 90 DAYS. Now married and with a baby on the way, they're hoping for a smooth future. But when Paul learns he can't afford Karine's visa to America and isn't able to convince his mother to become a co-sponsor, he must come up with a new plan: move to Brazil himself. With only three months to prepare for their baby, will Paul and Karine be able to make things work this time around?


Season 2 of 90 DAY FIANCE: THE OTHER WAY premiered on Monday, June 8, 2020 from 9-11pm ET/PT on TLC. The sophomore series flips the script on the original show: here, the American is the one giving up everything and moving across the globe to be with the person they love. Racing against a ticking clock, they will face the challenges of relocating internationally, overcoming major culture shocks, winning over soon-to-be foreign in-laws and, most importantly, trying to make it down the aisle. Catch up with two of last season's lovestruck pairs still trying to make it work and meet four new hopeful couples taking the plunge for love. Couples in Season 2 include:

Brittany, 26 (Palm Beach, Florida) and Yazan, 24 (Jordan): Brittany and Yazan knew it was love at first sight after meeting over video chat through Yazan's sister. Now, Brittany is moving to Jordan, but a few things stand in the way. Yazan is a devout Muslim, and Brittany believes she is too independent for religion, has no plans to convert to Islam and her provocative nature may not be accepted by Yazan's conservative family. Additionally, Yazan's family won't let them move in together until they are married, which will inevitably be delayed since Brittany is holding on to a secret that could ruin everything.

Kenneth, 57 (St. Petersburg, Florida) and Armando, 31 (Mexico): After meeting through a gay fathers support group, Kenneth and Armando had an undeniable bond, despite their 26-year age difference. The two are determined to make their love last, so Kenneth is leaving everything he knows behind and moving to Mexico to start a new life with Armando and his daughter. But Armando's family is not accepting of his sexuality and because of this, he has yet to tell them about Kenneth.

Ariela, 28 (Princeton, New Jersey) and Biniyam, 29 (Ethiopia): Ariela, a recent divorcee, had no plans to fall in love again this quickly. While on a soul-searching trip around the world, she met Biniyam in Ethiopia and ended up staying for a couple of months. Before returning to America, Ariela found out that she was pregnant. She decided to eventually move back to Ethiopia for the birth of their baby so that Biniyam could be present. However, the living conditions and healthcare system where Ariela will give birth and live with her new family make her and her family nervous for this big move.

Tim, 34 (Dallas, Texas) and Melyza, 29 (Colombia): Tim was out one night when he spotted Melyza at a bar. He introduced himself, and they hit it off right away. At the time, Melyza was working as an au pair and planned to leave town in a few days, but they had such a strong connection that they decided to try dating long distance with the plan of Melyza eventually moving to Texas. However, Tim did something to lose Melyza's trust, so to prove his love for her, Tim is now moving to Colombia. Melyza's mother also doesn't trust Tim and thinks he has a lot to prove for her to support their relationship.

Jenny, 61 (Palm Springs, California) and Sumit, 32 (India): After uprooting her life once for Sumit, Jenny is once again ready to move back to India for the love she believes is real. Their relationship was thrown off course last season when Jenny found out that Sumit was in an arranged marriage with someone else. After her initial shock, Jenny had no choice but to return to America with nothing but empty pockets and a broken heart. This time around, Sumit is promising that he will never lie again and that he and his wife are finally getting divorced. Jenny is heading back to India with a positive and hopeful mindset.

Deavan, 23 (Salt Lake City, Utah) and Jihoon, 29 (South Korea): After experiencing life as a single mother, Deavan thought that she finally found the man that would be her partner for life. Deavan, her mom and her two children are now going to South Korea so that Deavan and Jihoon can finally start their life together. Upon arrival however, it is very evident that Jihoon and Deavan have several cultural obstacles that they need to overcome, in addition to their language barrier.
