90 Day Fiance features Americans who have fallen in love with foreigners bringing their fiances to the United States on K-1 visas.

However, once the couple is in America together, the American must marry their overseas partner within the 90-day period allowed by the visa or the foreigner has to return to their home country.

Below is the latest on several of 90 Day Fiance's eighth-season couples based on the twelfth episode.


With 44 days to wed, Yara called her engagement party "terrible" because she said Jovi had ignored her all night and left her to "get drunk with his friends."

Jovi asked Yara why she was so mad the morning after, and Yara explained he seemed to care more about his friends than he cared about her.

Jovi said between his job and bringing Yara to America, he didn't have much time to spend with his friends and family and so it was difficult to split his time and make everyone happy.

Yara said she was "uncomfortable and alone" at the party and so Jovi had lost here.

"English is my first language, I don't know anybody and I'm pregnant. So of course I'm going to be mad. I'm so worried the way he treated me now is how he will [treat] me all the time," Yara said in a confessional.

Jovi insisted he wasn't that drunk at the party, but Yara didn't believe him.

"If you want to be with me, you have to stop the drinking," Yara said, giving Jovi an ultimatum.

Jovi thought it was ridiculous he couldn't drink for nine months just because Yara couldn't due to her pregnancy, but Yara said that's what she wanted and needed from him.


Yara said Jovi needed to make sure that she's happy and think about their future together. She accused him of drinking every day, but Jovi argued that wasn't true because he worked four weeks at a time and couldn't drink on the job.

Yara started crying and told Jovi that he wasn't treating her well.

"Is drinking more important to you than all of this stuff?" Yara asked.

"No, it's not. I thought it was fine; I was not acting stupid," Jovi replied.

Yara gave Jovi permission to drink on special occasions and not every day or else he'd be visiting with his child on weekends while living apart from her.

Jovi agreed to drink a little bit less and take better care of his wife-to-be, and Yara demanded respect, especially during her pregnancy.

"I just want him to show that me and the baby [come] first," Yara told the cameras.

Despite her negative feelings and emotions toward Jovi, Yara attempted to act happy in front of Jovi's mother Gwen the morning after the engagement party.

Jovi told his parents that Yara's pregnancy was an "oh sh-t" moment, which made Yara unhappy. Yara then said she wanted to get married with no guests, and Gwen admitted that was "not cool" because she really wanted to be in attendance.

"It's my wedding, and I decide how I want it," Yara told the cameras, although she told Gwen that she hadn't made a decision yet.

Jovi stood up for Yara and what she wanted, but Gwen was furious and said there was no way she'd allow her son to get married without her being there. Gwen pointed out that Yara didn't even like New Orleans, and so Jovi's father asked whether this wedding was even a good idea.

Jovi had another work trip coming up soon, so he and Yara had to get married within two weeks. Jovi felt rushed but said he was going to make things work so he and Yara would be ready for their baby.

A few days after their engagement party, Yara said Jovi was doing more and treating her better. Not only did Jovi try to cook for her, but he was apparently staying home with her more instead of going out with his friends.

Jovi was beginning to understand the stress Yara was going through of being pregnant in a foreign country without any friends or relatives around. Jovi intended to be more sympathetic and supportive.

Yara, however, didn't like the idea of raising a baby in New Orleans because she said the city was all about partying and drinking. Yara also criticized Jovi for not knowing much about his own culture.

Jovi told Yara that they still had nine or 10 months on their apartment lease, and Yara playfully questioned whether she should return to Ukraine because her country is "amazing."

"This never was my dream," Yara told Jovi. "[I'm] dreaming about different stuff."

Yara said she missed her friends in Ukraine and life in America was totally different. Yara, however, said she loved Jovi and really wanted their relationship to work.

Jovi apologized for his actions at the engagement party and insisted he was trying to do better, and Yara agreed to marry Jovi despite the bumps they had experienced in the road after her move to America.


After "a weird day and night," Stephanie woke up in Belize and said she and Ryan were officially over. It only took 48 hours of the couple being together in Belize for their relationship to end.

Stephanie had even told Ryan to "f-ck off and die." She said she was disappointed in Ryan because she had dedicated three-and-a-half years of her life to "a f-cking liar."

Stephanie was crying because she couldn't believe things had ended this way, but she insisted that she didn't miss him. Stephanie woke up to a big "I love you" balloon downstairs, but Stephanie popped the balloon.


"I'm done. I'm done, done. If I never see the little f-cker again, it won't be a day too soon," Stephanie noted. "This is the straw... The visa needs to be cancelled."

Stephanie said she didn't miss Ryan and she missed her cat more than her ex.

Stephanie turned her attention to Ryan's cousin Harris, whom she had been intimate with about a year-and-a-half ago when she and Ryan were briefly broken up. Stephanie was excited to see Harris, "a familiar face," and seemed to consider dating him.

Stephanie and Harris, a farm worker, then reunited and hugged each other. Harris told the cameras that Stephanie was his good friend and she deserved to be loved and cared for.

Harris had traveled about six hours just to see Stephanie, and she told Harris that Ryan was a cheater, liar and "master manipulator."

Harris said Ryan was never the right guy for Stephanie and she needed a man who would take care of her and be by her side. Stephanie asked Harris to stay with her for three or four nights until she returned to Michigan, and Harris agreed to stick around for her.

Stephanie said Harris gave her "great comfort" and she also felt "comfort" with him. Stephanie also noted that she was still very attracted to him and she'd make the most of the rest of her trip in Belize.


With 61 days left to wed, Brandon, a pest-control specialist, was no longer invited into many people's homes due to the coronavirus pandemic. Brandon was considered an essential worker, but he said people were "paranoid and a bit crazy" so business wasn't great.

Brandon and Julia realized they needed to obtain a marriage license because they had to get married within 90 days.

Ron and Betty hoped things would get better in the next month or so, but Brandon told Julia if COVID-19 continued to be a problem, they'd have to just go sign the papers in court and have a big church wedding later on.

Julia said it was her dream to get married in a church, and Betty agreed to show Julia the church as well as join her for wedding-dress shopping. Betty told Brandon that he wasn't supposed to see the dress, but Brandon wanted to attend as well.

Julia explained that Russian people go dressing shopping with their best friends and so that person was Brandon for her in the United States.

Julia didn't seem thrilled about the idea of Betty going shopping with her, but Betty was adamant she wanted to be a part of the experience and be there for Julia since her mother in Russia couldn't be.

In March 2020, Julia went shopping for a wedding dress, and Betty was able to tag along.

While trying on dresses, Julia had her mother Elena on FaceTime so she could feel like she was participating.

Brandon didn't seem excited or enthusiastic when providing his opinion on the dresses, and he didn't seem to like Julia's favorite style.


Julia and Betty begged Brandon to talk and show more emotion, but Brandon told the cameras he was indifferent to the dresses but had already shared his favorite one with Julia.

Betty admitted Brandon was "out of his element" and just didn't know what to do or say to help Julia make up her mind.


With 22 days left to wed in March 2020, Natalie had been in America for a couple of months. Mike had told Natalie that he wasn't ready for her to be his fiancee or his wife.

The coronavirus pandemic was also spreading around the world at this time, and Natalie was still struggling to trust her boyfriend, whom she had accused of cheating with his close girlfriend and lying about it.

Natalie told her friend on FaceTime that she didn't feel confident in her relationship, but Svetlana reminded Natalie that she was Mike's only love. Svetlana, however, was surprised to hear that Mike refused to give Natalie her engagement ring back.

"I was an impulsive mistake of mine. Even though I was mad and upset, I shouldn't have given him the ring back 24 hours before he was about to leave [Ukraine]," Natalie admitted in a confessional.

Natalie said as a 35-year-old woman, she really wanted to be married and start a family. She had already been through a painful divorce and just wanted to be happy.

Natalie decided she should be more patient with Mike, slow down, and "forget and forgive." Natalie also intended to ask Mike for his forgiveness because she said these issues and all of this resentment were ruining her relationship.

Natalie said she wanted to stop fighting and needed to talk to Mike about how she was feeling so they could move forward as a happy couple. Natalie was determined to work on her trust and jealousy issues going forward.

Mike had reached the end of his rope on fighting with Natalie, who asked Mike to sit down and talk to her. Natalie said they both had been feeling some pain and she understood her lack of trust in him had been "torture."

Natalie apologized and said she needed to keep the past in the past. Natalie promised to move on and not bring up the incident again, and Mike said he appreciated her effort.

Natalie asked Mike to start on a clear and fresh page, as if Mike had yet to hurt her or betray her trust.

Natalie's visa was about to expire in a few weeks and the couple still had a lot to figure out.



With 22 days left to wed, Tarik and Hazel were searching for a girlfriend for Hazel.

The couple had set up a profile on a dating website for couples who are looking for a girlfriend, but Tarik admitted their search wasn't going well.

Tarik, for instance, found a catfish on the dating website.

Hazel explained she wanted a girlfriend not just for sex but to also have a sister-like best friend in her life.


Hazel told Tarik that she didn't want to date an Asian woman, especially not Thai, since Tarik loves everything about Thai culture and women.

"I'm worried if we have another girlfriend like our ex Minty, maybe [he's] going to care more about the girl than me," Hazel lamented.

Tarik suggested to Hazel they ask Minty for help on their search because Minty knew them very well and might have a good recommendation for them, but Hazel was annoyed about how much Tarik talked about Minty.

"If Tarik still has feelings for Minty, I don't know how we can get married," Hazel noted.

Tarik felt Hazel had just tried to shut him up and so he wasn't happy, and Hazel wondered if Tarik was just looking for an excuse to be able to communicate with Minty again.

In May 2020, Hazel agreed they could contact Minty, who might be able to give them relationship advice and tell them what type of woman would complement both of their personalities and lifestyles.

Hazel didn't like asking Minty for advice, but she apparently said "yes" to see how Tarik and Minty would interact with each other. Hazel wanted to know if Tarik was going to flirt with Minty and if she could really trust him.

Hazel didn't like how Tarik thought Minty is beautiful, but Tarik felt they had history with Minty and she knew them both very well.

Minty told Tarik and Hazel that they weren't looking for the same type of person, and Tarik agreed because Hazel didn't want to date a Thai woman at all because of their past.

Minty told the cameras that she met Tarik first and then was introduced to Hazel, who she had a good connection with until jealousy ensued. Minty, however, said she didn't like Hazel's attitude once she got to know Hazel better.

"I am attracted to Tarik very much," Minty said. "If Tarik not engaged to Hazel, I think me and him would be together."

Hazel made it very clear she didn't want to date or be friends with Minty, but Minty told Hazel to compromise since Tarik really likes Thai woman. Minty therefore suggested she could join their love triangle again.

"Is that the start for her to be with us again? Do you hide something? Hazel asked Tarik.

"No, it's not the start," Tarik replied.

Minty told Hazel that they wouldn't be able to find another girl like her in the future, but Hazel asked her to stop talking.

"She will not be our girl," Hazel confirmed.


Minty said she could still feel Hazel's jealousy and she and Tarik probably wouldn't be happy in marriage if Hazel continued to be jealous of any woman that would enter their lives.

Tarik said Hazel was trying to make a competition out of things but she'd always be his No. 1.

Hazel asked Tarik if he really wanted Minty's advice or just wanted to see and talk to her again. She was suddenly feeling less confident in Tarik and lost trust in him.

"If I don't trust Tarik, I don't want to marry him," Hazel said.


Zied was adjusting to life in America as Rebecca worked a lot to make them money. Zied admitted he was very bored, but he and Rebecca had plans to go somewhere special the following day.

Rebecca took Zied to a venue where they could have their wedding. She said it was nice to spend time with Zied and surprised him with a horse-drawn carriage for them to ride in.

Zied thought the horse was "amazing," and Rebecca's goal was to make Zied excited about planning their wedding. Zied liked the venue but pointed out how coronavirus was going to pose a big problem for them.

Zied told Rebecca that while she wanted a big and beautiful wedding, he needed to get married quickly and the best route for doing that would be to sign papers in court.

"I'm disappointed Zied is willing to settle so quickly on just having a regular courthouse wedding," Rebecca shared with the cameras.

"Despite the fact I've been married three times before, to be honest, this feels like the first time I'm getting married and this is going to be my last wedding. So I want it to be special!"

Rebecca and Zied then spent the night at the resort where Rebecca dreamed of having her "normal" wedding.

Zied told Rebecca that he wanted to marry her before Ramadan, which is the biggest holiday for people who practice Islam and started in a few weeks from that point. The holiday lasts about a month long, and Rebecca wondered why Zied hadn't brought this up earlier.

"So if I don't marry you quickly, you do home?" Rebecca asked.

"Yeah," Zied replied.

Rebecca told Zied that she wouldn't marry him before Ramadan and that's not what she wanted. Zied said his visa was going to expire one week after Ramadan and most places were closed due to coronavirus.

Rebecca asked Zied not to raise his voice to her, and he said they needed to marry before Ramadan or else he wouldn't see her or live with her in their apartment. Zied told Rebecca that she needed to move out if they couldn't marry each other right away.


Zied didn't think he had done anything wrong because they had to marry in a short period of time on his K-1 visa anyways. Rebecca didn't want to rush her wedding because she had married her ex from Morocco quickly and then he "became an entirely different person."

Rebecca didn't know what to do or how to proceed given she was scared to repeat the past.


In July 2020, Amira only had 25 days left on her K-1 visa until it expired. Amira said the worst experience of her life was being locked up in a Mexican detainment center.

Amira was then shown sitting down with her father and revealing she planned to travel to Serbia in order to not lose her K-1 visa. Amira said she still wanted to live with Andrew in America and quarantining in Serbia for 14 days might provide them a loophole.

Amira's father told his daughter that she was about to make the same mistake again and there's "a mafia" in Serbia. Amira claimed many people in Serbia don't respect human rights and Amira's plan was "not good at all."

"You must not sacrifice for Andrew because he is not going to sacrifice for you," Hamdi said. "He didn't come to get you out of the detention center... He didn't move from the town where he was."

Hamdi said Andrew never really tried to find Amira.

"He is a coward! I don't believe in him, at all," Hamdi told his daughter. "I think he is selfish. If he really loves her, he would ask her to wait until the situation is good and clear."

Hamdi told Amira that she was his "everything" and he didn't want to watch her suffer again.

Hamdi said if Amira traveled to Serbia, he would no longer speak to her. Amira said she was "heartbroken" that her father was threatening to never talk to her again, and she felt totally "torn" in between her dad and her love.

"This is so tough. I don't know what to do," Amira said on the verge of tears.

Once Andrew learned of Hamdi's ultimatum, he feared Hamdi might convince his daughter to no longer date him or pursue a relationship with him.


In order to get answers, Andrew decided to FaceTime with an immigration lawyer. The lawyer advised Amira to say she's on vacation -- not meeting her fiance -- upon entry into a new country like Mexico or Serbia.

The lawyer said Amira seemed suspicious in Mexico because officials probably thought she wanted to get married there and a plan to quarantine in Serbia, which was only a two-hour flight for Amira, might actually work.

Amira figured she wouldn't receive an extension on her K-1 visa, but the lawyer said Amira could ask for the visa to be reissued due to circumstances outside of her control.

Amira expressed hesitation about traveling to Serbia, and Andrew said it was totally her decision and she was free to do whatever she wanted to do. But Amira didn't believe her partner and assumed Andrew would become angry with her.

Amira said she feared history was going to repeat itself if she went to Serbia and if she didn't travel to Serbia, Andrew would be upset with her and make her feel bad.

Andrew didn't appreciate Amira blaming Mexico on him, but Amira said that wasn't what she was trying to do. Amira said Andrew's job was to reassure her and not to get mad at her for being worried.

"I'm not mad at you, baby, I am stuck in a place of frustration," Andrew explained. "I'm just going to do whatever is laid before me on your path. You contact me if you want to go to Serbia. If not, that's fine too."

"Okay," Amira conceded.

"I love you with all my heart," Andrew added. "I hope you'll contact me with some sort of resolution."
