One of the most ridiculous and popular reality shows out there is about to make a gay milestone.
If you haven’t heard of 90 Day Fiancé, you’re six seasons and five spin-offs behind. The reality tv show follows strangers (one American and one foreign citizen) as they decide to get married through the K-1 visa process. The only catch is, they have just 90 days to get used to each other before the big day. As you expect, there’s tons of craziness and drama that happens during that time. Honestly, it’s often like watching a trainwreck or slowing down to look at a car crash. Same feeling and similar experience.
But in those six seasons and five spin-offs, there has amazingly never been a gay couple. Until now, that is.
TLC has recently dropped the trailer for season 4 of spin-off series Before The 90 Days. This spin-off of the flagship series follows couples that have met each other online, but have yet to start the K-1 visa process. And we’re happy to see that a gay couple has been included in the show.
29-year-old Stephanie from Yonkers, New York and 24-year-old Erika from Australia are willing to risk it all to fall in love. Even Stephanie’s poor health.
Here’s all the TLC has told us about the couple so far:
“As a social media influencer, Stephanie is used to receiving messages from her followers. She never expected, however, that one her fans would become her next love interest. For the last three months, she’s been in an online relationship with Erika, a spunky Australian photographer, but has been keeping Erika and her own sexual orientation a secret from her family. Stephanie is unsure how to break the news to her parents that she will be traveling to Australia to meet a woman she loves. To further complicate the situation, she has a rare bone marrow disorder that requires clearance from her doctors to travel, as well as several medications to keep her stable. Stephanie is risking her health to meet the woman of her dreams, but is Erika only in love with her online persona or with the real Stephanie?”
Will this relationship work out? Or will it explode into flames? And will Stephanie be ok? We’ll find out and we’re sure fans of the show will go crazy over it.
