As a little person, her condition prevents her from standing or walking for long periods, so she relies on her wheelchair to get around. Alina is taking her chances and seeing if Caleb is the man for her.

Who are the new ’90 Day Fiancé’ couple Alina and Caleb?

Caleb from Chandler, Arizona, started talking to Alina when they were just teens. Still, they lost touch. 13 years later, the two reconnected after serendipitously finding each other on a dating app while Steven was planning a trip to Russia.

Now, the 28-year-old is eager to meet his long-lost love in Turkey to see if the expectations meet reality. She and her very protective best friend and roommate, Elijah, will travel to meet Caleb in Turkey. Now, Caleb has to prove himself to Elijah, showing that his intentions with Alina are pure.

What challenges do Alina and Caleb face in season 5?

Alina and Caleb will be one of seven couples featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5. What can fans expect to see this season? Caleb says in the season trailer, “Alina and I have a deep connection, but I’m worried what other people would say as the massive difference between us.”

In the trailer, Alina reveals her concerns as she waits at the airport for Caleb to arrive. She says, “I’m scared he’s going to see me in the wheelchair, and he’s going to go ‘eww.'”

With cultural differences, language barriers, and height differences, this is sure to be one interesting relationship. Will Caleb and Alina feel the same way about each other once they are together in person? It will be interesting to see how the relationship plays out. 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days airs Dec. 12, 2021.
