The series has sixteen spin-offs[citation needed] including 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, which documents past 90 Day Fiancé couples after their marriage; 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, which follows couples who met online but have not yet started the K-1 visa process; and 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, a series where the American partner moves to their partner's home country instead of vice versa.

PremiseEdit

The show is based on the K-1 visa process. This visa allows the fiancé from a foreign country to travel to the USA to live with his or her prospective American spouse. The purpose of the K-1 Visa is to provide time for the couple to make arrangements and have a marriage ceremony. Each couple is required to sign documents stating their intent to marry, as part of the visa process. If the couple does not marry within 90 days, the beneficiary must leave the country. The couple may face language barriers, culture shock, the stigma of being thought of as a "mail-order bride", and skepticism from friends and family.

When Nikki came to Maryland, Mark surprised her with a car and taught her how to drive. The car was the same make and model that Mark placed a down payment on for his first wife. Mark insisted early in the relationship, well before the K1 process, that there would be a prenuptial agreement and subsequently Sharp Entertainment, the production company, made them play out scripted scenes numerous times, including right before the wedding, to the production teams liking. Mark's daughter, Elise, felt uncomfortable with the relationship because she is a year older than Nikki. Elise shared her discomfort when Mark wanted to give Nikki some clothes that Elise had previously discarded. The couple sued TLC for broken written promises which they claimed did not conflict with the contract presented afterwards, including: that the "show is a documentary, not scripted, not staged, filmed as it happens" filmed in "real time" and "you are not forced to do or say anything." Mark and Nikki complained of being victimized as the show did not accurately reflect reality, in ways both implicit (participants being placed in artificial situations), and deceptive (misleading editing, participants being coached on behavior, storylines generated ahead of time, scenes being staged) and they have stated that they were forced to comply or would be held liable for the production costs, Paragraph 6 of contract. Furthermore Mark and Nikki sued Discovery and Sharp for Libel, because they had edited footage and made Nikki say "for work I work Karaoke Bar" which she never said and implies she was a prostitute or KTV girl, which has caused her and her family great shame and humilation! Matt Sharp, the CEO of Sharp Entertainment defined "dub" when questioned by Mark, before he signed the contract, as "to be able to translate into another language or add a soundtrack", however in court the defense argued that the word "dub" gave Defendants 100% freedom to fictionalize Mark and Nikki (Case #101802-16 Supreme Court of the State of New York County, New York). The lawsuit was eventually dismissed.[13] Mark filed for divorce on March 2nd, 2022, the complaint lists both parties residing at the same address and records show it remains unserved.[14]
