TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé has been nothing if not a rollercoaster of emotions. There are eight seasons so far, and fans are excited for more!
TLC’s hit show 90 Day Fiancé has been on the air since 2014 and it is so popular that it even has several spin-offs. The original series focuses on couples at the beginning of their journey. The international partner typically comes to the United States, and then the couple has ninety days to decide whether they should get married or call it quits. These people clearly do not know each other very well and they often fail to understand each other’s perspectives since they come from different cultures.
It makes for compelling and highly entertaining TV, especially when the couples are mismatched and hot-headed. In the eight seasons that have so far aired, there has been a slew of various couples, ranging from predictable and healthy to straight-up upsetting. An ideal season consists of both. When there are too many dysfunctional couples, the show is hard to watch. On the other hand, happy and healthy couples get boring pretty fast.
Updated on November 12, 2021, by Jake Koran: With eight seasons of the show out and the franchise not looking to slow down any time soon, fans may be wondering what the best 90 Day Fiancé season is up to this point. While ranking a definitive best is hard to do, certain seasons have gripped many fans more than others. The series has gone through many changes over the years, with certain seasons receiving more criticism for appearing staged. However, some of the best 90 Day Fiancé seasons stick with viewers and leave them hopeful for the future of the franchise.
8/8 Season 8
When it comes to the most recent season of 90 Day Fiancé, audiences had mixed reviews at best. While the show has always featured drama, and many fans love the biggest 90 Day Fiancé troublemakers, Season 8 seemed to focus more on the tension between couples than some of the sweeter moments that fans also enjoy.
Between Mike and Natalie, Andrew and Amira, and so on, this season is filled with drama that often comes from a lack of communication, failure to try to understand one another, and many other reasons. Season 8 has its merits, but compared to the rest of the series, it tends to fall short.
7/8 Season 6
The cast of Season 6 failed to make a lasting impression on fans of the show, despite being one of the most recent ones. There was the dysfunctional duo of Colt and Larissa who got married after spending only eleven days together. Worse yet were Eric and Leida, whose relationship was, at times, horrifying to watch.
The only couple who did not get married in Season 6 was Steven and Olga from Russia, but they did not break up. Olga’s visa was approved later on, and Steven went to see her, which gave fans a sense of hope for the couple.
Season 5 might not have been the best, but it was incredibly versatile. There was Andrei, a man from Moldova who met his American soulmate Elizabeth in Ireland. They got their happily ever after, but Luis and Molly did not, resulting in one of the shortest-lived marriages in the shortest-lived marriages in 90 Day Fiancé so far. She met her 20-year-old ex-husband while vacationing in the Dominican Republic. It was clear that he did not take the relationship seriously at all, and he definitely was not ready to be a stepfather to Molly’s daughters.
We met Nicole and Azan in Season 4. Their story got complicated by Season 5, and it was painful to watch Nicole sabotage her own life for him while he was arrested back in his homeland. David met his wife Annie in Thailand. He also struggled financially, which was exacerbated by her family who demanded that he pay a hefty price to earn her hand in marriage. There were plenty of memorable moments in this season, but some of the couples were, unfortunately, not meant to be. This did not mean that fans were not invested in their stories, though. Overall, Season 5 was full of drama, which perhaps showed the trajectory the show was taking, but it still had plenty of heartfelt moments between certain couples.
One of the most recent seasons introduced seven couples who might not have been as memorable as other seasons’, but they seemed way more real. The most memorable couple was Anna from Nebraska and Turkish native Mursel. There was also Anny and Robert. She insisted on going to the strip club with him to celebrate her first birthday in the States and wanted them to have a threesome with another woman.
Then there was Tania and Syngin. Tania left for a whole month to go to Costa Rica and attend an educational workshop. The two met in South Africa and decided they will give their relationship a go despite all the odds. Even though Season 7 did not have some of the most memorable moments, fans who watched it connected with several of the cast members, giving hope that the show may still have the spark that viewers enjoyed in the first several seasons.
In Season 1, fans met Paola, who moved to Oklahoma for Russ, Kirlyam, who came from Brasil to be with Alan, and Aziza, who married Mark despite their financial struggles. Kirlyam was a fan favorite. Her future husband was a Mormon, but they managed to balance his lifestyle with her interests. It is not often that couples on this show reach compromises in a calm and adult way.
Kirlyam’s English was not very good, and she really struggled with homesickness. The first season stood out as the single most realistic one. Later on, the show became so polished that some fans started wondering whether it is even real or not. While some couples definitely looked fake later on, Season 1 felt truly genuine and showed audiences one of the most heartwarming couples in 90 Day Fiancé.
Alexei and Loren Brovarnik made one of the most likable and normal couples on the show. They have a baby, but they are not the only 90 Day Fiancé couple that has a child. Josh and Aleksandra also have a baby, so it is safe to say that Season 3 was overall very successful.
The strangest couple from Season 3 was definitely Nikki and Mark. She was his second Filipino wife and she was just two years older than his daughter. She rightfully freaked out when she saw a picture of his deceased ex-wife. The whole situation was weird, but Nikki decided to stay with him anyway.
If it was not for Danielle and Mohamed’s train wreck of a story in Season 2, the show probably would not have gotten as much media attention as it did. One of the most awkward moments of the show happened on the season’s tell-all, where Mohamed told everybody how Nicole attempted to get physical with him: “I want my sex!”, she yelled.
Mohamed definitely did not love Danielle and we felt sorry for her, but she was cruel to him as well. Even though it was hard to watch, we could not look away. Season 2 is when everybody got hooked. There was also Jason and Cassia from Brazil, Danny and Amy, and Brett and Daya. When fans think of the second season, though, Mohamed and Danielle are usually the first to come to mind. They were definitely one of the most memorable couples in 90 Day Fiancé history, though this was not always for good reasons.
Season 4 is the epitome of drama and highly entertaining couples who we loved to hate. It gave us Anfisa and Jorge, Pedro and Chantel, and Nicole and Azan. All were the kind of couples who refused to acknowledge all the red flags from the get-go, resulting in pain, confusion, and other hurtful things.
Chantel struggled to get Pedro to understand that he cannot send his family money behind her back to the Dominican Republic, Nicole visited Morocco and insulted Azan’s culture, and Anfisa and Jorge had one of the worst relationships in the history of the show. The season is packed with absurd scenarios and conflicts. It has fourteen episodes, all of which are worth watching.
