The hunt for The One goes on! In April, 90 Day Fiancé will return for a brand-new season, and the cast has already piqued fans’ interest.
Six new couples will be introduced in Season 9 of the TLC reality show and the return of one fan favourite couple: Ariela and Biniyam. Season 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, which aired in the fall of 2020, introduced fans to the New Jersey native and Ethiopian resident. Throughout Season 3 of the TLC show, their love story continued.
Following the completion of filming, photographs of the on-again, the off-again couple dressed up for a ceremony sparked wedding rumours in December 2021. Viewers are looking forward to seeing their journey to the altar and an update on where they are now on 90 Day Fiancé later this year.
Ari and Bini aren’t the only pair dealing with issues this season. Emily and Kobe’s one-night affair in China suddenly became difficult as their chemistry grew more vital — and they discovered they were expecting a kid.
In a teaser posted on Thursday, March 10, Emily says, “I can’t believe we’re doing a pregnancy test right now.”
Kara and Guillermo, on the other hand, are having problems with Kara’s past relationships as they prepare for their wedding. In the video, Guillermo informs Kara, “You have a history of cheating on people,” to which she responds, “Do you even trust me?”
For their part, Bilal and Shaeeda disagree about what it means to be married. When Shared is requested to sign a prenuptial agreement, she doubts their relationship.
In season 9, family turmoil will play a significant role in several relationships, including Patrick and Thas’, who find themselves living with the North Dakota native’s family before getting married. “It’s going to be incredibly difficult living with my brother,” Patrick says in the teaser.
With his domestic issues, he is not alone. Jibri and Miona can’t seem to agree on their living situation, with Miona maintaining, “Living with his parents will have to alter.”
The age gap between Yvette and Mohamed didn’t cause difficulty at first — they’re 23 years apart — but Yvette’s independence sparked a split between her and her fiancé. In the video, Yvette says, “I don’t want to be judged.” “I’m a full-fledged badass.”
TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé starts at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 17.
Scroll down to learn more about the couples from Season 9:
Emily and Kobe are a couple
Emily’s whirlwind affair with Kobe, 34, began while working as an English teacher in China and out dancing. In less than two weeks, the Kansas native, 29, and the Cameroonian were engaged. The couple found out they expected their first kid not long after that. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced Kobe to postpone his intentions to relocate to the United States to be with Emily. Emily welcomed their son during his two-year absence and raised him alone. Kobe is eager to meet his child for the first time, but his prolonged absence from Emily’s life may harm their connection.
Ari and Bini are a couple
In 2020, audiences first met Ari, 30, and Bini, 31, on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Despite their numerous ups and downs, the couple is committed to giving their romance one more go in the United States. Ari’s return to the United States to assist their son, Avi, with a necessary surgery caused the couple to have communication troubles. Bini’s departure from Ethiopia for New Jersey gives the pair hope that they will finally marry with their family’s blessing.
Guillermo and Kara are a couple
In 90 Day Fiancé, Guillermo, 23, piqued Kara’s interest while on a business trip to the Dominican Republic, where the Venezuelan native resides. When Kara returned to the United States, the two maintained in touch. Still, when she moved to the Dominican Republic for business, she decided to give their romance a fair go. Kara returned to Virginia during the coronavirus outbreak, but she remained faithful to her fiancé. When Guillermo moves to Charlottesville to be with his fiancée, the couple must see if they can make it for the long haul now that travel restrictions have been lifted.
90 Day Fiancé: Bilal and Shaeeda are a couple
The couple moved quickly at the beginning of their relationship, with Bilal, 42, proposing to the Trinidad and Tobago native, 37, after only one week of physical contact. The couple’s internet romance didn’t appear to have prepared them for their real-life issues, mainly regarding their plans. Shared desires a family of her own; however, Bilal, already a father, is undecided about having additional children.
Jibri and Miona are a couple
When Jibri, 28, saw Miona, 23, at one of his band’s gigs in North Serbia, it was love at first sight. During one of their many trips worldwide, the South Dakota native proposed to Miona because of their instant connection. The couple’s fast-paced courtship may not be suited to life in a small town in South Dakota, especially because Miona had ambitions to live the high life in Los Angeles.
90 Day Fiancé: Mohamed and Yvette are a couple
Mohamed, 25, sneaked into Yvette’s DMs, and the two began an online romance, bonding over their shared passion for exercise. Eventually, Yvette, 48, travelled to Egypt to meet Mohamed, and the two were engaged. However, Mohamed is hesitant because of Yvette’s independent lifestyle in the United States and her role as the mother of a 12-year-old kid with special needs.
Patrick and Thas are a couple
On a journey to Brazil to reconnect with his father’s side, Patrick, 31, met Thas, 25. When the Texas native searched for a Portuguese teacher on a dating app, Thas swiped right; the two began dating. Patrick must face his anxieties about getting married after his divorce, in addition to Tha’s culture shock when she relocates to the United States.
