Who are Kenneth and Armando on 90 Day Fiancé?
As the latest season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After comes to an end, TLC recently announced the upcoming premiere of separate spin-off show, 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way .
The show, which follows “American men and women who fall in love with partners from distant lands travel to their home countries to begin their married lives abroad”, is now in its third season and is considered by fans to be the best of the franchises several spin-off shows.
Since premiering in 2014, 90 Day Fiancé has received high audience viewer ratings, more than almost any other cable television show in the US according to recent viewing figures. Its two spin off shows, Happily Ever After and The Other Way, have similarly high ratings.
Here’s the run down on returning couple, Kenneth and Armando.
Kenneth, 58, from St Petersburg, Florida, and Armando, 32, from Mexico, were first seen in season two.
The pair were the first gay couple to feature in the franchise in 2020 and the show followed their emotional journey from coming out to setting up their life together. Series three will focus on them planning “the wedding of the year” in Mexico as they deal with challenging homophobia issues. The couple also look to be struggling with further hurdles this season – such as Kenny’s inability to learn Spanish. Hannah, Armando’s daughter from his first marriage, is also big part of this season – as are discussions about expanding their family.
According to a statement from Discovery, “Now that Kenny has moved to Mexico and proposed to Armando, they are ready to dive into planning their beautiful wedding. Armando wants to spare no expense, but Kenny is nervous about how much this wedding is going to cost.
“One thing they agree on, however, is their concern over whether Armando’s family will support them as a gay couple and attend their wedding. First, Armando must open up to his father about his engagement to Kenny. Meanwhile, Kenny and Armando begin to plan long-term.
“As Kenny grapples with the guilt of missing his children in Florida, Armando brings up the topic of giving Hannah a younger sibling. This opens up a complicated debate over whether they both agree on expanding their family, when and how, via adoption or surrogacy.”
In the trailer for the new season, the pair can be seen looking fraught as they plan their wedding, leaving fans wondering about the hurdles the couple will face in the coming months.
The show will return on Sunday 29 August from 8 pm ET/PT.
Each new episode of the show will be available to stream on Fridays, exclusively on Discovery Plus.
