Ever wonder what it would be like to partake in an arranged marriage? This show explores what it’s like to set-up and execute a successful wedding to a foreign citizen within 90-days, without ever having lived together yet.
This show follows couples who have decided to take advantage of the 90-day K-1 visa to the US and bring their international lovers into their lives. They must live together for the first time, and use the 90-day period to decide if they have what it takes to make a marriage work. Within that short timeframe, they must go through with the marriage, or else the partner has to immediately return to their home country.
Season 4 presents five new couples who are up for this challenge and are trying to make it work. Anfisa from Russia and Jorge from California: his wealth attracted her and her sex appeal attracted him. Azan from Morocco and Nicole from Florida: she flew to his home country to meet his family before deciding to get engaged. Olulowo from Nigeria and Narkiya from Pennsylvania: her family is not trusting his lies at all. Pedro from Dominican Republic and Chantel from Georgia: they are in love, but not telling her parents why he came to the US.
The series also has a new spin-off which began airing this season called 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After which revisits some of the more intriguing couples from the past three seasons. Checking in to see how their marriages are going, these couples will reveal the challenges and successes of their relationships.
IMDb voters rank this show at a mediocre 5.7 out of 10 with nearly 300 votes cast. Viewers have commented positively about the series, saying that many of the couples seem loving and cute, and they enjoy watching how they get past the language barrier and culture shock. Other comments which are much more negative, say the producers should be ashamed of themselves for trying to ruin the more intimate things in a relationship by shoving a camera in their faces, and that many of the arrangements seem completely staged.
Viewership Is On The Ups!
Season 4 had an early debut to give Tyler Perry’s new show on TLC, Too Close To Home, a nice welcoming lead-in. The premiere at 8pm on August 22, 2016, earned a demo rating of 0.34 with 0.84 million viewers. The full season began airing on September 11, 2016, with the ‘countdown’ special that earned only a 0.25 demo rating and 0.72 million viewers.
Since September, season 4 had really picked up in the ratings, with the finale airing on November 6, 2016, pulling in a 0.54 demo rating with 1.54 million viewers. Those are much better numbers for this popular show!
TLC has already announced that this series will definitely return for a fifth season! They will also be renewing the first spin-off for a second run (although, it will likely be renamed 90 Days After), and there will be another spin-off potentially called 90 Days Before!
