Below is an update on each 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couple based on the premiere episode of Season 3:

REBECCA and ZIED

Rebecca is a 47-year-old private investigator who loves catching cheating partners. She enjoys putting GPS systems on cars and finds it to be an "adrenaline rush."

Rebecca has three grown children as well as granchildren, and she said she's super close to her family. However, relationships haven't worked out for her because she falls hard and fast.

Rebecca met Zied on Facebook when his picture popped up in "People you may know." She sent him a friend request but then found out he lived in Tunisia.

However, Rebecca still wanted to get to know him better. Although Zied was only 26, she found him "sweet and romantic" and fell in love. Rebecca was attracted to his green eyes and lips, and she insisted he made her happy and she deserved it.

Rebecca was planning on leaving for Tunisia in just a few days. While she acknowledged her 15-hour flight and traveling overseas was "crazy," she hoped to return to the United States as an engaged woman.

This was the second time Rebecca was getting involved with a foreign man and she had been married three times before. The first two marriages were "average, run-of-the-mill American men," but her third marriage was to a Moroccan man whom she had brought to America on a spousal visa.

Within the three or four months the Moroccan man was in the United States, she said he was acting different and became a different person. She then tracked him via GPS and found out he had been cheating on her with other women.

Rebecca's friends were worried about this new relationship, especially since Rebecca hadn't done an international background check on this new man. But Rebecca said if something was going on, she would know it.

Rebecca hadn't seen "a single red flag" with Zied, so she hoped this time would be different and she could find happiness.

"But what if it's not?" Rebecca questioned.

Rebecca decided to trust Zied but knew there was an absolute possibility he was trying to take advantage of her and use her for money or a move to America.

Rebecca videochatted with Zied three or four times a week, and she tried to look her sexiest every time. Rebecca also worried she wouldn't be good enough for Zied because she often took photos with filters that smoothed her skin out and made her look younger.

Rebecca said Zied was going to pick her up at the airport and she predicted she'd run into his arms "and attack him." Zied couldn't wait to show Rebecca how much he loved her and introduce her to his family.

In Tunisia, unwed couples cannot share a room together overnight, so Zied's father said they had to stay in different places. Zied, however, planned to stay in Rebecca's hotel with her.

"I want the engagement, I want the wedding, I want our life to start. But I have left a lot of things out about my past. I'm keeping a secret from Zied, and when I get to Tunisia, he deserves for me to be completely honest," Rebecca said.

Rebecca didn't know how Zied was going to react to her secret, and she had concerns he might dump her and leave her.

Rebecca then revealed she wasn't technically divorced yet from her ex. She had "put it off" emotionally and said things didn't end well. Omar had finally signed the papers, but the divorce was not finalized.

Rebecca knew the topic would come up during her time with Zied and the conversation scared her to death because he tended to be a very jealous man.

Before leaving the United States, Rebecca filed the divorce paperwork, but she admitted she wouldn't have a court date until her return from Tunisia.

"In Zied's culture, a relationship with a married woman is strictly forbidden. I'd like to think he'll be pretty understanding, but that's a big deal," Rebecca noted. "I don't know what he's going to do when he finds out I'm still married. I'm scared it would cause the end of the relationship."

CAESAR and MARIA

Caesar revealed he rides his bike 10-15 minutes to work every day as a nail technician. Caesar said people are surprised when they learn he does nails, but he learned the trade from his ex-girlfriend, his high school sweetheart whom he dated for 13 years.

When the pair broke up, Caesar was "heartbroken," but he said he's a helpless romantic always on the search for his soul mate.

"I think I've finally found the one woman I've been searching for all my life," Caesar told the cameras.

Caesar had fallen for Maria, a receptionist from the Ukraine. He said she was kind, funny and made him feel special. They communicated every single day and she even called Caesar her "husband."

A producer, however, pointed out Maria might be sending those videos to other men as well since she never used his name and only used pet names.

Caesar planned to fly to the Ukraine to meet her in person in a couple of weeks, and he was really excited. They had been dating for five years and talking about marriage for a long time.

Caesar revealed he sent Maria about $800 a month and had sent her a total of $40,000 over the years. Caesar had invested his time, effort and savings into this woman, so he really hoped things were going to work out -- although he clients were suspicious and worried for him.

Caesar was getting excited to meet his love in person, but she changed his plans and suggested they meet at a resort in Mexico instead, which would be a lot more expensive. Caesar told Maria he wanted to fly to Ukraine and meet her friends, but she said it was really cold there.

Maria told Caesar it would be better to fly to Ukraine in nicer weather, which worried Caesar because they had tried to meet up on three different occasions over their five years together and something seemed to come up each time that prevented their meeting.

The first time, a travel agency allegedly took half of Maria's money, and the second time, Maria missed her flight. Caesar said something was missing on Maria's passport during their third attempt to see each other.

Caesar admitted to Maria money was tight and he'd have trouble paying for a vacation in Mexico. However, he planned to work harder and longer hours in order to figure something out for their relationship. He said he loved her and would do whatever it takes to make it work.

Caesar feared Maria wouldn't wait much longer for him and would move on with somebody else.

Caesar asked his best friend Tim at the nail salon to loan him some money, and Tim hesitantly agreed, telling Caesar that he was wasting his money. But Caesar was thrilled and couldn't wait to give Maria "the trip of her dreams."

Caesar was then shown sending Maria $2,000 so she could buy her own ticket to Mexico. He didn't buy it himself because he trusted his girlfriend. Caesar had never felt this way about anyone in his life.

Caesar also paid for the hotel, and he felt like he was on top of the world. All he needed was for Maria to book her flight and send him the confirmation.

But when Caesar FaceTimed with Maria, she said it would be difficult for her to travel in and out of Ukraine because of dangers in her country and the law. She accused Caesar of only thinking about himself, but his plane ticket to Mexico was nonrefundable.

A producer suggested to Caesar that Maria had just made another excuse, and he tried to stop himself from crying. The distance and the obstacles between Maria and himself were really starting to get to him.

AVERY and OMAR

Avery, a former Christian and all-American girl -- a chearleader and gymnast -- converted to Islam six months prior. She covered her hair every day and only showed her hands and face.

Avery had never dated a Muslim man, but she joined a Muslim dating app and quickly met Omar, a 24-year-old with "a beautiful heart." His profile said he was from America, but Avery found out he's actually from Syria.

Since a war is going on in Syria, Avery's loved ones feared Omar's intentions and Avery's future with him, but she was "already hooked."

After just one month of talking, Omar asked Avery to marry him, and she had received her engagement ring in the mail. She planned to travel to Lebanon in 10 days to finally meet her fiance in person.

Avery lived with her mom Teri, stepdad, five siblings and grandparents. Teri was very afraid for her daughter because she had only talked to her fiance online.

Avery said she talked to Omar on a daily basis and was able to pick up on his personality traits. She trusted Omar and hoped to bring him to the United States on a visa between 9 months and three years due to the travel ban from Syria.

Teri feared Omar was using her daughter just to come to the United States and accused Avery of becoming a different person for this man. Avery's brother even joked Avery would come up with wild plans, such as becoming a vegetarian, only to sneak fried chicken up to her room.

Avery's family clearly had no faith her relationship was going to work out, and Teri wanted her daughter to remain in the United States with her.

Teri planned to travel to Lebanon with Avery in order to ensure her safety, but Avery said her mother was going to be "devastated" once she figured out her long-term plans after marrying Omar.

The parents of Avery's good friend Rachel were very concerned about Avery's relationship with Omar. She revealed they were engaged and getting married in 11 days in Lebanon, which shocked Rachel and her family.

Avery admitted she was taking a leap of faith, but Rachel feared watching her friend "crash and burn" again. Rachel also thought it was dangerous for people to meet in person after getting to know each other over the internet.

Avery said Omar was about to become an oral surgeron but he had two years of schooling left. Avery then confessed she planned to move to Syria -- a dramatic life change she had yet to share with her mother.

"I don't think I can be apart from him for however long this visa takes," Avery said.

Rachel's dad worried Avery would be "a walking bullseye" in Syria considering she's an American and there have been a lot of bombings amid war. Rachel's mom told Avery to come up with a plan and have quick contacts in case she finds herself in a dangerous situation.

Avery knew it was crazy she'd be moving to an active warzone, but she said no one would be able to change her mind. She loved Omar, and that's all there was to it.

DARCEY and TOM

Darcey said she lived with her twin sister, Stacey, and two daughters, and the road to finding her soul mate hadn't been easy.

Her last serious relationship was with Jesse Meester from Amsterdam, who had starred on Season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days with Darcey. Darcey recalled how he had control issues and broke up when her when she wanted to work things out.

Darcey said she never really got closure from that relationship, but she wanted to close that chapter, start a new one, and never go through something like that again.

Darcey was dating a new British man named Tom, the jet-setter type whom she had connected with four years ago on Facebook. The pair had planned to meet up, but she met Jesse instead. Darcey said she always stayed loyal to Jesse but wondered about Tom in the back of her mind.

Darcey found Tom supportive and explained their relationship blossomed over time as they talked more and more. Darcey had once again fallen in love. Darcey wanted a healthy, positive relationship for herself and her girls.

Darcey intended to fly to England in one week to meet Tom in person for the first time.

Darcey's daughters thought Tom was a great guy, but they advised her to proceed with caution because they claimed Jesse didn't treat her well and they didn't want that for their mom again.

"With Jesse, it felt like a false love, but I feel Tom is the right one for me," Darcey told the cameras.

Darcey hoped Stacey would see it was her turn for love, because Stacey had been engaged to an Albanian man for three years. Stacey was just concerned Darcey was going to take things a little too fast.

But Darcey said the "torment" from her relationship with Jesse had made her strong and she wasn't going to "be stupid this time around." Darcey said another man would never bring her down again.

Darcey said Tom helped her to understand she deserves better in a relationship than what she had with Jesse, and she called Tom her "rock."

Tom, however, told Darcey that he was going to send her a driver at the airport because at the time of her plane landing, it would have been awhile since she brushed her teeth. Tom wanted to give Darcey some time to freshen up, and she was perfectly fine with that idea.

Darcey then revealed Tom had purchased her a beautiful ring that she sometimes wore on her left hand's ring finger.

Darcey posted a photo of the ring once on social media and Jesse had blasted her engagement and romance as fake, but she felt certain Tom was everything she wanted and a marriage proposal would be the next step.

TIMOTHY and JENIFFER

Timothy, who creates real and exotic firearms, said image meant a lot to him because he was unattractive and not cool when he was younger. Timothy said he's worked hard to fit in, be cool and be successful.

Timothy said his business was going well but he couldn't find happiness through monetary means. Timothy had his heart broken a few times, but he was hoping that stage of his life was over.

"I have met my dream woman," Timothy noted.

Timothy was dating a 25-year-old model from Colombia named Jeniffer. He initially thought she was a catfish when they met online because she was beautiful, with long hair and tattoos.

Timothy thought their romance was too good to be true at first, but he fell in love with her. Timothy said she's outgoing, down to earth and a good mother to her one-year-old daughter Violet.

Timothy, who's also a father, said family is very important to both Jeniffer and himself.

Timothy was with his ex-fiancee Veronica for eight years but they split up four years ago. Timothy said after fighting over assets, they're finally in a good place and now they're best friends who raise Chloe, 12, together.

Timothy is not Chloe's biological father, but he considers Chloe his daughter in every sense of the word.

Timothy's flight was booked and he was leaving for Colombia in a few days. Timothy anticipated getting engaged, but his ex worried how she and Chloe were going to fit into his new life.

"I will not let it jeopardize my relationship with Chloe," Timothy said, adding that Jeniffer didn't like how much time he spent with his ex-fiancee.

Veronica was prepared to step in if necessary because she didn't know what Jeniffer's intentions were. Veronica was worried and concerned Jennifer planned to use Timothy for something.

Timothy said Jeniffer was "drop-dead gorgeous" and he had to pay her a lot of attention since she has "unlimited options." While FaceTiming, Jeniffer, for example, asked Timothy to buy her a beautiful $500 dress.

ADVERTISEMENT
Timothy told Jeniffer that his ex was throwing him a going away party, which she thought was weird and a bit inappropriate. It didn't seem like Timothy's relationship with Veronica was going to fly in Jeniffer's eyes, but he really hoped the two women would come to get along or at least respect each other.
