The new season of 90 Day Fiancé is definitely more drama-filled than ever. The trailer for season 8 of the hit TLC show dropped on Tuesday, catching viewers up on favorite couples from seasons past as well as brand new faces.
Familiar faces include 46-year-old Tarik from Virginia and 28-year-old Hazel from the Philippines, who are navigating Hazel getting a girlfriend to add to their relationship after she revealed that she's bisexual. In one surreal moment in the trailer, Tarik helps Hazel find a girlfriend online, asking her if she likes curvy or petite women.
The new season also follows the continuation of 49-year-old Rebecca from Georgia's relationship with 27-year-old Zied from Tunisia. Rebecca has a new job and is working overtime to support Zied financially when he arrives in America. However, his insistence on getting married quickly is making her question his motives.
But no storyline looks as explosive as the continuation of 35-year-old Mike from Washington's story with 35-year-old Natalie from Ukraine. Although the two struggled with everything from Mike not wanting to have kids right away to differences in religion -- Natalie is religious while Mike said he believes in aliens -- they pushed through with Natalie's K-1 visa and she is now in the U.S. However, the two clearly still have serious issues, and at one point, Natalie cries hysterically when she says Mike is sending her back to Ukraine.
"I'm honestly scared," she cries. "I have to leave the country because I'm illegal here. Michael is monster."
Meanwhile, Mike is stoic as she cries, simply telling her, "I'm sorry about everything."
Of course, there's also new couples that will be introduced to the 90 Day Fiancé family. Check out their stories below:
