Jenny is a 60-year-old mother of three and grandmother of four who decided to move to India to be with Sumit, whom she met on Facebook. Before meeting Sumit, 30, Jenny was married for 15 years, but was blindsided when her ex-husband left her for someone else.

"You know, what you do for love, sometimes is unbelievable," Jenny said on the show. "I think that everyone is entitled to happiness... I didn't really think I would find love again, to tell you the truth."

Initially, Sumit catfished Jenny by pretending to be a hot male model named Michael Jones on Facebook but he came clean once he started developing feelings for the California-based grandmother.

Tiffany, a 27-year-old mom from Maryland is ready to make the move to South Africa to marry her love, Ronald. She met Ronald — who just completed rehab for his gambling addiction — while she was on a trip in the African country with a friend. 

"Me and him just had so much chemistry," she explained. "I went back to South Africa six months later and on that trip he actually proposed to me on that same cliff that he took me [the first night]. I was so happy. I never felt like this in my entire life."

However, she won't be alone. She is also bringing her 8-year-old son, Daniel, along for the adventure. Fun fact: Tiffany didn't know she was pregnant with Daniel until 15 minutes before his birth.

Corey, a 32-year-old Mormon from Washington, confessed to spending over $40,000 on his long-distance girlfriend but that didn't stop him from moving to Ecuador to be with Evelin, 26, whose tourist visa had expired.

The couple met while Corey was backpacking and traveling up through Peru and he decided to stop in Ecuador for a few days and that is where he saw Evelin for the first time. 

"I am with him because he has shown me that he is the most loving, respectful man," Evelin said before telling Corey. "And you're fun, and you're yummy."

If you think Paul, 35, looks familiar, that is because he has appeared on 90 Day Fiancé with his wife, Karine. The couple have had their share of ups and downs — and after suffering a miscarriage, Paul returned to the U.S. to make some money. However, shortly after, Karine discovered she was pregnant again.  

"I love Karine very much and I love this baby," Paul said. "it's very difficult to be apart from Karine when she's pregnant. I really wish I could be there for her during this process because I'm nervous there's a possibility of us having another miscarriage." 

Paul is also trying to get Karine a spousal visa so his move to Brazil likely won't be permanent.
