THEIR LOVE KNOWS NO BORDERS

TLC shares the romance and realities of international relationships in "90 DAY FIANCÉ"

New series premieres January 12, 2014

[Los Angeles, CA]-- It's a tale as old as time ... boy & girl meet, boy & girl fall in love, girl gets special visa to visit the United States, boy & girl only have 90 days to decide the rest of their lives: get married or go back home. In the new TLC series 90 DAY FIANCÉ, viewers follow as five couples explore the complicated world of international romance. Four of the relationships will play out through six one-hour episodes on TLC, while one relationship journey will air exclusively on TLC.com. The series premieres Sunday January 12, 2014, at 10/9c.

Using a unique visa (known as a K-1 Visa) available to foreign fiancés of American citizens, these women have the opportunity to travel to the US to live with their prospective husbands for the first time. The couples must marry before their visas expire in 90 days or else the women must immediately leave the US and return to their countries. In addition to living together for the first time, these couples must overcome language barriers, culture shock, the stigma of being thought of as a "Mail Order Bride," and skeptical friends and family - all with the ticking clock starting the moment they step foot on US soil. Taking the life-altering chance on a cross-border romance, these foreign brides-to-be and their potential husbands will discover if their happily ever after is meant to be.

The series will follow these couples:

Alan (from Los Angeles, CA) & Kirlyam (from Brazil): Alan, 29, met Kirlyam, 21, while he was on a religious mission in Brazil. This devoutly Mormon and sexually abstinent couple have only seen each other a few times, in short two-week intervals. When Kirlyam, a humble but gorgeous girl from a small village in Brazil, lands in glitzy LA, she falls in love with the world of flash and fashion. Focused on the future, Alan wants to rush the wedding, while Kirlyam wonders if 90 days is enough time to commit.

Louis (from Indianapolis, IL) & Aya (from Philippines): After a bad break up with his ex-wife, Louis, 33, a father of two, decided to try his hand at online dating and won the heart of Aya, 30, a hard-working Filipino woman. After a 7-day trip to the Philippines for their first face-to-face meeting, Louis decided to propose. Louis will not get married until his family is comfortable with the decision. Now Aya must win over not only Louis' two children but his ex-wife as well.

Mike (from Cleveland, OH) & Aziza (from Russia): Mike, 31, and Aziza, 21, met on an international language learning website, where Mike wanted to learn Russian for an upcoming trip while Aziza wanted to learn English - and after just 6 days together in person the two decided to get married. As a full time student Aziza has never had to take care of anything but her studies, but Mike is eager to start a family, adding to the pressure.

Russ (from Owasso, OK) & Paola (from Colombia): After moving to Colombia for work, country boy Russ, 27, met Paola, 26, at a local house party. Russ, an all-American oil worker raised in the heartland, returns back home and brings his sultry South American fiancé along - but worries that his slow-paced, prairie lifestyle doesn't mesh with the fast and fiery city life she loves. Plus, she's not only living with him, but at home with his parents, adding for some additional culture shock.

Featured on TLC.com will be Len (from Scottsdale, AZ) & Alina (from Ukraine): Len, 48, is a successful businessman and one of Scottsdale's most eligible bachelors. While traveling in the Ukraine, Len spotted Alina, 23, in a coffee shop with some friends. The two hit it off right away and began communicating regularly online. After a one-week vacation, Len and Alina decided to pursue a more serious relationship and Len asked her to come to the US. Slowing things down is Alina's concern about her happiness as she leaves behind an active social life and studies to live in the suburbs of where the only person she knows is her new fiancé.
