TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” is as much about culture shock as it is about rushing into marriage — and Sunday’s episode is no exception.
In a first-look clip made available exclusively to TheWrap, Nicole is wowed by the beauty of Azan’s Morocco, but she doesn’t dig its anti-PDA culture. This proves to be a problem for the very touchy-feely American, who gets pretty lovey-dovey over buying some napkins.
Azan turns down her hug advances, which only makes the public display of affection more important to Nicole. Of course, he’s got to live there, she’s just visiting. You know, for now.
Nicole, 21, and Azan, 23, met through a messenger app but have never met in person. Nicole has a 20-month-old daughter and has never traveled outside of America. Nicole’s family is nervous for her to travel alone and skeptical of Azan’s intentions because they think he is using her for a green card.
So, classic “90 Day Fiance” stuff.
Watch the video above.
In addition to those two, here are some other couples that probably won’t make it:
Narkyia (Camp Hill, Pennsylvania) and Olulowo “Lowo” (from Nigeria, living in Vietnam)
Narkyia, 36, and Lowo, 28, met on a Facebook group called ‘Beautiful Big Women,’ when Lowo privately messaged Narkyia. Lowo tried catfishing Narkyia by pretending to live in Alabama, along with other far-reaching lies. Narkyia fears that she can’t fully trust him.
Matt (Williamstown, Kentucky) and Alla (from Ukraine)
Matt, 42, and Alla, 30, met on an international dating site. Matt, married and divorced 3 times, had traveled to Ukraine looking for love. There he found Alla but bringing her to America also means bringing her 7 year old son.
Jorge (Los Angeles, California) and Anfisa (from Moscow, Russia)
Jorge, 25, and Anfisa, 20, met when Jorge stumbled on Anfisa’s Facebook page and began courting her. Soon he was taking her on expensive trips across Europe. Now he plans to show Anfisa a life of luxury in America where he hopes she will fit in with his large family, which includes protective older sisters.
Chantel (Atlanta, Georgia) and Pedro (from Dominican Republic)
Chantel, 25, and Pedro, 24, met when Chantel’s former Spanish teacher pointed her to Pedro’s Facebook page so she could learn Spanish faster. Chantel has hidden the truth about her relationship with Pedro from her family. They think he is entering the US on a student visa and have no idea that Pedro has only 90 days to marry Chantel or leave the country.
“90 Day Fiance” airs Sundays at 9/8c on TLC.
