Among the many marriage-based reality shows, 90 Day Fiance is easily the most…bureaucratic. The program follows couples who have applied for K-1 visas, which are available to foreign fiances of American citizens. These provisional visas allow anyone to stay in the country for 90 days before they expire and the foreign half of the couple either pledges eternal love before a judge or goes back home. Marriage seems like a likely recourse for couples who are in love, the typical applicants of the K-1 visa.
Of course, this is all easier said than done. In some cases, foreign fiances experience culture shock in a land deluged by strip malls, SUVs, and Chik-Fil-A, not to mention the drama of skeptical family and friends. There’s also the stigma the visa carries as it’s widely thought of as the “mail-order bride visa,” despite the fact that this isn’t true in the majority of K-1 cases. 90 Day Fiance offers viewers a peek at the unique world of international dating, and the hope of love across all borders.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream 90 Day Fiance.

90 Day Fiancé Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “The motives of the grooms-to-be are rarely questioned, but the concerns raised about each fiance’s motives (which usually have something to do with obtaining American citizenship), are often steeped in unspoken stereotypes about women from various countries around the world. The result is a voyeuristic series that is sometimes very uncomfortable to watch.” –Melissa Camacho, Common Sense Media

The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
