The 90 Day Fiance spin off, Before The 90 Days, will feature a same sex couple- a New York woman and her love interest from Down Under! This is a first for any 90 Day Fiance show.
According to ET Online, “The popular 90 Day Fiance spinoff — in which Americans go to a foreign country to find love — is returning on Feb. 23 on TLC, and ET can exclusively reveal that for the first time ever, the season will feature a same-sex couple. Stephanie, a 29-year-old social media influencer from Yonkers, New York, is in an online relationship with Erika, a 24-year-old photographer from Australia, after Erika initially messaged her as a fan. However, Stephanie hasn’t told her parents about her sexual orientation before planning to meet Erika in Australia.”
We will see the New Yorker come out to her parents, as ET got their hot hands on an exclusive clip from the upcoming season. Stephanie reveals, “I’m in love with somebody from across the world, and that somebody is a girl.”
The love story between Stephanie and Erika is further complicated by Stephanie’s serious health concern — she has a rare bone marrow disorder that requires clearance from her doctors to travel, as well as several medications to keep her stable. “With my health condition, a common cold can kill me,” explained the social media influencer.
