I’m a sucker for a good reality TV show. There’s something about watching other people’s drama, knowing I’m so far removed from it, that it makes it fun? One of my favorites is TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé. If you’re unfamiliar with this beautiful hot mess of a show, let me explain! Basically, two people from two very different parts of the world fall in love, whether through talking in an online chat room, a chance encounter on a mission trip, or a one-night stand that turned into something more. Regardless, despite the hundreds of miles between them, these two people want to make it work. So, they apply for a K-1 visa here in the U.S., and if approved, they have just 90 days to get married. It’s exactly as chaotic as it sounds—but, funnily enough, it has lasting results. Seven seasons and seven spin-off show laters, including 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, 90 Day Fiancé: What Now?, 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk, and 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, a lot of couples have had a chance to tell their love story. Now, the question is: How many couples stayed together after the cameras stop rolling? Ahead, check back in with 40 of your favorite couples from the 90 Day Fiancé franchise. Get ready for all the piping hot tea.
Angela Deem and Micheal Ilesanmi
We’re first introduced to this couple when Angela flew from Georgia to Nigeria to meet Michael in person. By the end of the trip, they were engaged. The couple is known for their arguments, to say the least, but that didn’t stop them from getting married.
The couple married in Nigeria in January of 2020, and the wedding will be broadcast on the latest season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After. “Getting rid of him is not easy. Because that’s real love, you know,” said Angela in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Let’s face it, being on the show four times, he could have moved on a while back. I’ve learned that he really truly does love me.”
Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha
Leida and Eric got engaged two days after meeting IRL after Leida answered a personal ad that Eric left on an international website. In retrospect, this is a totally normal amount of time 90 Day Fiancé-wise.
After arriving in America, Leida and Eric’s daughter, Tasha, got into multiple nasty arguments, which led to Leida getting a four-year restraining order against Tasha. Despite the drama, the couple is still married today, and are raising Leida’s son together.
Paul Staehle and Karine Martins
The pair met online, and Paul went to go visit Karine in her home country of Brazil after hitting it off. Shortly after, the couple got engaged and married. Since then, they’ve celebrated their second wedding anniversary, but just that month, Karine discussed filing for divorce per Reality TV World, and this wasn’t the first time.
The couple welcomed their son Pierre in March of 2019, and recently announced they are expecting another child! Paul announced the news on his Instagram story, according to Cheat Sheet.
Steven Frend and Olga Koshimbetova
While on a summer vacation in the U.S., Olga met Steven. Less than a month later, the couple found out they were expecting. So, as you probably remember, when Steven went to Russia to be there for the birth of their son, he informed Olga he didn’t actually file for the K–1 visa…when he said he did.
On the show he said he wanted to get to know her more and make sure they were compatible. They eventually got approved and were married in August of 2019. Olga has mentioned on Instagram that she would like another child, but it won’t be for a couple of years.
Ashley Martson and Jay Smith
In Jamaica for a wedding, Ashley met Jay. Six months later, she returned, and by the end of the vacation, they were engaged.
Just three days after their 2018 Las Vegas wedding, Ashley caught Jay using dating apps. A source close to the couple told Us Weekly that they were calling it quits. “At this time, my client is personally focused on herself and her personal life and her children. After giving someone so many chances, you learn to grow and see the better for yourself. She wishes Jay nothing but the best.”
As of March, the couple has reconciled and are back together again, according to E! News.
Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa
Kalani was vacationing in Samoa when she met Asuelu, an activities director at the resort she was staying at. After two visits to the country, she got pregnant with their first son, Oliver. They got married in September 2018.
In the days leading up to tying the knot, Kalani found out she was expecting their second child, another boy. Kennedy was born on May 7, 2019. They are still together.

They keep their life relatively quiet, but you can learn more what they’re up to today on Brett’s blog: The K1 Experience.
Fernanda Flores and Jonathan Rivera
Jonathan and Fernanda met when he was on vacation in Mexico. After three months of dating, he proposed. The couple, despite their 12-year age gap, applied for the K-1 visa and got married.
In January 2019, Jonathan told followers of their split. “Fernanda and I will remain friends. I think you give everything in a relationship—in a marriage—that you can. I will give everything I can to the next person in my life,” he said, according to E!.
Fernanda had her own side of the story and took it to YouTube nearly five months later to explain their divorce.
“I found a lot of stuff—not just underwear,” Fernanda said. “Sex toys, pictures, movies, and stuff. Dude, you’re supposed to have left your past behind and start fresh with me. I know you’re a single man. I know that you’re older than me…but I wasn’t understanding why. I realized not everything is how it seems.”
Fernanda was recently linked to Bachelor in Paradise alum Clay Harbor, but according to Harbor, per InTouch Weekly, they’re just friends.
David and Annie Toborowsky
While working and living in Thailand, David met Annie, 24 years his junior. Despite their age gap and financial issues (a close friend of David’s had to pay her dowry), the couple got married back in the United States. Today David works at a national marketing company and teaches online while Annie runs a Thai cooking business, according to Cheat Sheet.
Nicole Nafziger and Azan Tefou
Like many 90 Day couples, this duo met online. Nicole traveled to Morocco to go visit Azan, and sparks flew! She later moved to his country after his K-1 visa was denied, but left to go back to the U.S.—but not before calling off their wedding (twice!).
From social media, the couple appears to still be together.
Robert and Anny Spring
After eight hours of bliss in the Dominican Republic, Robert proposed to Anny. On the season finale of the seventh season of 90 Day Fiancé, the pair got married despite the fact Robert had doubts, like, hours before the ceremony.

Ed and Rosemarie
After meeting online, Ed traveled from sunny San Diego to the Philippines to meet his 23-year-old girlfriend, Rosemarie. When he got there, the pair fought over Rose’s past, taking STD tests, and a bunch of other things.
At the end of the season, Rose left the relationship, and Ed headed back home single. At the tell-all, Rose told host Shaun Robinson that she wanted “zero contact with him.”

While volunteering in Nicaragua, Chelsea met Yamir. They soon moved in together in Chelsea’s parent’s house and got married. Just a month and a half after they tied the knot, Chelsea filed for divorce in November of 2016, due to Yamir wanting to pursue a music career in Chicago.
On September 13, 2017, what would’ve been their first anniversary, he posted an Instagram tribute to his ex-wife. “Just because two people aren’t together any longer doesn’t mean you cannot have a relationship with that person,” he wrote. “Although we no longer have the bond that united us, there’s no hate!”

They’re still married, and Emily wants viewers to know the Sasha they saw on the show isn’t the one she knows. “For a while, I was disappointed that the world didn’t get to meet the Sasha I know,” she wrote on Instagram. “The man I know is always thinking about how he can be a better provider for his family. The man who sees something in the store and says, ‘I want to send this to my father, son, brother, etc.’ The man who doesn’t have a lot of possessions because he’s so giving… I’ve come to terms with everything. I’ll keep the real you to myself.”

Californian Justin met Colombian Evelyn at a 2013 rugby match in her home country. Just after a week, they had to part ways, but that didn’t stop him from taking her with him to the U.S. later.
